The Walking Dead attraction rises at Universal Studios Hollywood

Universal Studios has confirmed that a permanent Walking Dead-themed attraction will now be housed in its Hollywood park.

The move was announced during the zombie drama’s post-show talk show, The Talking Dead in the US, by the show’s host Chris Hardwick who revealed that a Walking Dead walk-through maze will become a fixed feature of the resort.

The zombie-filled maze has previously been offered to visitors during the theme park’s annual Halloween Horror Nights. However, owing to the series’ growing popularity, it will now be a year-round attraction.

Featuring “authentic walker make-up effects, sophisticated animatronic walkers, substantially more detailed set design and costuming and highly recognisable props,” the set will mirror events of the hit AMC series.

Check out the first teaser trailer for the Walking Dead attraction, scheduled to open this summer:
