‘Walking Dead’ Gets Permanent Universal Studios Hollywood Attraction

Zombies are invading Universal Studios Hollywood … all year long.

The theme park’s “Walking Dead” haunted maze, an in-demand seasonal attraction offered at the park’s last four Halloween Horror Nights, will be turned into a permanent feature.

The year-round “Walking Dead” walk-through attraction will debut this summer in a building near the main entrance of the Southern California theme park.

The news was announced on Sunday night during the hit AMC series’ post-show talk show “The Talking Dead.”

“It’s going to be located within a custom built structure that will immerse guests within the world of ‘The Walking Dead,'” host Chris Hardwick said, promising that it will be the “most intense, realistic ‘Walking Dead’ experience ever.”

Executive producer Greg Nicotero and the show’s special effects makeup team are involved in the creation of the attraction, which is open to people over 13 years of age.

The 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.”

Universal will open another attraction based on a popular literary property, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, on April 7.
