Uni­ver­sal Stu­dios Hol­ly­wood unveiled their amaz­ing new The Walk­ing Dead per­ma­nent attrac­tion with a lot of fan­fare and snarling zom­bies. An enter­tain­ing day for press and lucky guests at the park, The Walk­ing Dead’s Exec­u­tive Pro­duc­er, Direc­tor and Walk­er Cre­ator Greg Nicotero (KNB Efx) helped open the icon­ic “Don’t Open, Dead Inside” doors to a walk-through attrac­tion like no oth­er. Being a huge The Walk­ing Dead fan — this zom­bie girl was super excit­ed by all the walk­er fun!

After the intro from Uni­ver­sal execs and Greg Nicotero, we were joined by TWD cast mem­bers Scott Wil­son (Her­shel), Kyla Kenedy (Mika), Brighton Sharbino (Lizzie), Ross Mar­quand (Aaron), Michael Traynor (Nicholas) and TWD super fan Yvette Nicole Brown; most of whom seemed more than a bit ner­vous about going through the attrac­tion. When Negan and his gang showed up with a hand­cuffed line of zom­bies to “cut” through to get in and a herd of hun­gry walk­ers are released from the side­lines, being inside the attrac­tion seemed safer than out­side.

For those of you liv­ing under a rock, The Walk­ing Dead Attrac­tion is based on AMC’s top-rat­ed tele­vi­sion series, The Walk­ing Dead, and offi­cial­ly opened to the pub­lic on Mon­day, July 4th. The Walk­ing Dead depicts the sto­ry of sur­vivors in a post-apoc­a­lyp­tic world over­run with hordes of zom­bies, (bet­ter known on the show as walk­ers.) It was real­ly great to get a sneak peek with­out hav­ing to wait in a long line and I got a few pho­tos to show just to share a bit of the attrac­tion.

For fans of the show, there will be a lot of famil­iar scenes from the show through­out, orig­i­nal props from the show and also east­er eggs or hid­den zom­bies, if you will, for them to find. For first time The Walk­ing Dead folks, this attrac­tion will be super scary and will stand on its own as a fun jump-scare type maze.

With­out giv­ing too much away, the attrac­tion starts at the hos­pi­tal from the begin­ning of the series, and winds guests through a maze of The Walk­ing Dead clas­sic moments. With real­is­tic ani­ma­tron­ic walk­ers mixed with live tal­ent, you nev­er know what might jump out at you. I’m very hard to scare, and they man­aged to even get a few jumps from me (unlike the news per­son in front of me with the blood cur­dling screams, LOL).

I loved the attrac­tion as much as I thought I would and look for­ward to going through it again! Get your tick­et for the scari­est maze that you can go through year-round!!
