Universal Studios Hollywood to open their Walking Dead attraction mid-summer

The Walking Dead Attraction Universal Studios Hollywood

Universal Studios Hollywood's The Walking Dead Attraction is an expansion from their perenially popular zombie mazes on Halloween Horror Nights.

Bringing zombies to the park 24/7 in a new area right next to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter (watch out, kids!), the attraction "remains a walk-through experience but has been revised and re-envisioned as an enhanced maze with recognizable props and locations from the show." It will feature both actors in make-up and animatronics, designed by Walking Dead poster boy Greg Nicotero with KNB.

Now we have an official opening day for the zombie attraction: July 4th, just in time for our annual invasion by aliens.

Says Nicotero:

For me, something that’s very exciting is being able to make the attraction as 100 percent authentic as possible. We’re getting a chance to do animatronic characters that we’ve never done before. We’re getting a chance to utilize molds that were created specifically for the show, and translate them into parts of the attraction. It’s one-of-a-kind, state-of-the-art. I can’t wait.
