So who’s excited for AMC’s The Walking Dead returning tomorrow? To help prepare you for the mid-season premiere, here’s a new video of TWD star Christian Serratos coming face-to-face with walkers in The Walking Dead Attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood. Does she survive? Find out below…
Universal Studios Hollywood has unlocked the iconic “Don’t’ Open, Dead Inside” doors to usher in its all-new The Walking Dead permanent daytime attraction, based on AMC’s top-rated television series and the most-watched show in cable television history.
This newly enhanced venture takes the highly sought-after experience from a seasonal, limited time offering to an exciting 365-day opportunity, raising the bar for themed walk-through attractions. To ensure authenticity of the attraction, Universal Studios Hollywood partnered with TWD’s creative team, including Greg Nicotero and KNB Efx to develop prosthetics, utilize original molds and painstakingly apply paint and detailing to attraction walkers. The integral involvement of the creative team not only inspires the emotional connection fans experience, it is among the attraction’s key distinguishing characteristics that define it as a living representation of the show. The attraction is a must do for all HHN fans!
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 delivers an uncompromised realistic environment that brings guests even further into the most-watched show in cable television history. TWD attraction is located within an entirely new, custom-built structure, situated within an expansive building complex just inside the theme park’s main entry.
Whereas Orlando’s Universal Studios lost “the Shark in the Dark” tradition at HHN, Hollywood’s event now has a new tradition; so enjoy the second half premiere tomorrow!
Due to the intense nature of this experience, the attraction is not recommended for guests under the age of 13.
