‘The Walking Dead’ Will Now Be Part of Universal Studios Hollywood Year-Round

Were The Walking Dead not ubiquitous enough already, nor California already  a zombified hellscape, Universal Studios Hollywood wants to do its part. Having previously featured The Walking Dead exhibits as a Halloween attraction, the zombie smash will now infect Hollywood fulltime.

AMC made the announcement during Sunday’s Talking Dead, confirming a year-round attraction for Universal Studios Hollywood to arrive in Summer 2016. The series had featured a maze into Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights for the last four years.

AMC executive producer and FX guru Greg Nicotero will involve his special effects company KNB Efx, contributing prosthetics, original molds from the series and more for the as-yet-unspecified attraction. “Coupled with authentic walker make-up effects, sophisticated animatronic walkers, substantially more detailed set design and costuming, and highly recognizable props replicated from the series, the attraction will deliver an uncompromised realistic environment that brings guests even further into the most watched show in cable television history.”

Says Universal:

‘The Walking Dead’ is a phenomenon that has successfully and consistently affected the psyche of viewers on a global basis, since its debut. We’re taking its intensity to the next level by collaborating with the show’s award-winning production team to create an authentic living representation of the series that can only be experienced at Universal Studios Hollywood.

We’ll have more details as the attraction prepares to open its doors this summer, but should we expect any difference from the Halloween Horror Nights event?
