Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios is looking better and better with each announcement. Following word that The Cabin in the Woods will be featured at Universal Studios Orlando and that the Evil Dead remake would be featured as part of the Halloween Horror Nights event at both the Orlando and Hollywood locations, comes news that The Walking Dead will be resurrected at both parks for the second consecutive year.
The Walking Dead's Greg Nicotero, Steven Yeun and Norman Reedus offer us a sneak peek of what's ahead in the video below:
It was around this time last year that we learned that The Walking Dead was going to be featured at Universal's annual scare-filled Halloween Horror Nights event. Today, Universal sent word that the AMC drama will once again be featured at the event, which begins September 20. But if you think it'll be a rerun of last year's event, think again. The Walking Dead feature at Halloween Horror Nights will be inspired by the zombie drama's third season, with the prison and Woodbury being worked into the attraction:
The eerily authentic and disturbingly real maze experiences will place “Halloween Horror Nights” guests at the heart of the show’s once impenetrable prison, the West Georgia Correctional Facility, now overrun by hordes of flesh-eating walkers. The mazes at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando will send guests cowering through the walker-infested wilderness that surrounds the prison and into the seemingly utopian town of Woodbury where gruesome secrets are concealed.
This is the first time ever that all of the scare zones throughout the park will be themed after a hit TV show, as Universal Orlando is dedicating its entire Halloween Horror Nights street experience to The Walking Dead. Guests at the Orlando park will be able to walk through iconic scenes from all three seasons of the hit series, including the zombie-infested city of Atlanta and Hershel's barn.
It's great to hear that TWD will be back at Universal this year. One of the great things about using a TV series as part of the feature is that the show evolves each year, which would allow the event to expand and evolve as well. Those fans who visited Universal last year can return if they want to enjoy all new zombie scares. And as we mentioned, there's also Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard's The Cabin in the Woods, which will be featured during Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando, and the Evil Dead remake, for even more cabin scares, which will be featured at both parks.
Halloween Horror Nights begins September 20. Visit the Halloween Horror Nights official website for more information on dates and tickets.
