‘The Walking Dead’ Experience Comes to Halloween Horror Nights

In addition to their other scaresUniversal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort is bringing The Walking Dead to their parks this Halloween. Season Three of the AMC series will be the inspiration for the new attractions and guests can expect an authentic and disturbing experience.

“Halloween Horror Nights” starts on Sept. 20 and not only will you be able to experience new mazes that take you through the West Georgia Correctional Facility, but also through walker-infested woods and into Woodbury.

As if that wasn’t terrifying enough, we’ve learned from the press release that, “Universal Orlando is also dedicating its entire ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ street experience to The Walking Dead – making this the first time ever that all of the scare zones throughout the park will be themed after a hit television series.  Guests brave enough to walk the streets of Universal Studios Florida will encounter iconic scenes from all three seasons of the hit show - including the perilous city of Atlanta and Hershel’s dismal barn - and fleets of blood-thirsty walkers who are hungry for their next victim…”

According to Michael Aiello, Creative Development Director for Universal Orlando’s Entertainment team, “The goal is always to surround guests with authentic and terrifying experiences. The combination of The Walking Dead themed street experiences and the haunted maze will make it difficult for our guests to escape the hordes of ravenous walkers they’ve seen on their television.  The moment you pass through our gate, you become a survivor fighting for your life.”

If you’re brave enough to take on hoards of walkers, check out their website for more information about “Halloween Horror Nights” at either Universal Orlando Resort or Universal Studios Hollywood.

The Walking Dead returns for Season Four on Sunday, October 13 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
