Yesterday, we reported that Silent Hill: Revelation 3D will be making its presence known at Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights this year. Today, it was announced that the hit AMC zombie series The Walking Dead will also be joining the festivities at Universal Studios this October. Take a look at The Walking Dead trailer and promo art for Halloween Horror Nights, along with the official press release.
Caught in the middle of a high-intensity struggle for survival, you fight off hordes of flesh-hungry, growling "walkers," or zombies. No place is safe as you make your way through a post-apocalyptic wasteland with horror at every turn. Will you survive?
This fall, Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood are joining forces with AMC's The Walking Dead for their Halloween Horror Nights events. Visitors to both theme parks will be able to experience the horror of AMC's blockbuster original series, The Walking Dead, in elaborately themed, haunted mazes. It marks the first-time Universal Studios has featured a television series at Halloween Horror Nights on both coasts.
The Golden Globe-nominated, Emmy Award-winning, series The Walking Dead is based on the comic book written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics. The series tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse. It follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home. The Walking Dead is the number-one drama series in basic cable history for adults 18-49 and adults 25-54.
Universal Studios' Halloween creative teams are working with AMC and The Walking Dead, to create an authentic experience that is true to the Emmy Award-winning hit series. The haunted mazes on both coasts feature eerily authentic, elaborately designed, movie-quality sets that include some of the most iconic locations and scenes from the show. Mobs of undead walkers bring to "life" the vicious, hungry, zombies from the show.
"The collaboration with Universal Studios' creative teams is a fantastic cross-promotional opportunity and a great way to capture the spirit of the series, which makes its Season 3 debut on AMC this October," said Linda Schupack, AMC's Executive Vice President of Marketing.
Universal's Halloween Horror Nights events have a more than 20-year history of creating incredibly entertaining, horrifying Halloween experiences that are consistently rated the nation's best. The events on each coast feature highly-themed, disturbingly real, haunted mazes based on everything from film to nightmares -- and streets filled with hundreds of specially trained "scareactors."
