Walking Dead Coming to Universal


universal-studios-florida-3Zombies will be invading Universal Studios Hollywood this summer. Universal recently announced a permanent exhibit of the hit TV show “The Walking Dead” walk-thru attraction reports,EW.

The attraction opens in summer 2016 and the addition comes just months after the park’s game-changing Wizarding World of Harry Potter opens in April.

As described in press notes, The Walking Dead attraction is significantly more intense than its Halloween iteration; the stomach-churning walk-through experience will boast “authentic walker make-up effects, sophisticated animatronic walkers, substantially more detailed set design and costuming, and highly recognizable props replicated from the series.

The creative team at Universal Hollywood has partnered with TWD producer, director, and all-around effects guru Greg Nicotero (as well as his company, KNB Efx) to bring the show’s zombie verdigris to real life for the maze and its patrons.

A new custom-built structure will house the new addition to the theme park, just inside the main entryway. According to Universal Studios Hollywood president Larry Kurzweil, The Walking Dead marks the latest portion of a whopping 75 percent of new territory that has taken over the park in the last five years.
