‘Walking Dead’ Reprised at Halloween Horror Nights

The popular television show, “Walking Dead,” will have another go-around at Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights 23.

“Walking Dead” is the third attraction for the annual scarefest, joining Cabin in the Woods and Evil Dead. It’s going to be a two-fold experience: The street program will feature scenes from the first two seasons of the show (a military tank in downtown Atlanta and a barn scene), while the Walking Dead house highlights the third season.

According to Dewayne Bevil of the Orlando Sentinel, the house will include “experiences with the governor’s fish tanks, an arena in the town of Woodbury stocked with chained zombies, and moments from the prison’s Cell Block C.”

Universal executives expect the “Walking Dead” zones to appeal to people who don’t watch the show. The theme parks works with Greg Nicotero, walking Dead makeup artist and executive producer, to create the special effects.

Walking Dead, based on the graphic novel by Robert Kirkman, tells the story of the months and years after a zombie apocalypse. Survivors are led by sheriff Rick Grimes and travel in search of a safe home. This is the first time Halloween Horror Nights has been themed using a television show.

The scarefest runs on select nights from Sept. 20 to Nov. 2. Click here for ticket information.
