Okay, so there's at least one reason remaining to enjoy living in Florida: Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights are bringing back their 'The Walking Dead' maze!!
Universal Studios is bringing out an all-new 'The Walking Dead' maze, improving upon last year's offering. And hey: this one will be influenced by the mega-popular third season of the AMC series, which I'm pleased to say means a recreation of the prison!
Beginning on September 20, 2013 and running throughout the Hallowe'en season, fans will have the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of human survivors from 'The Walking Dead' and even come face-to-decaying-face with some of the Walkers themselves. As stated in the official press release: "the eerily authentic and disturbingly real maze experiences will place "Halloween Horror Nights" guests at the heart of the show's once impenetrable prison, the West Georgia Correctional Facility, now overrun by hordes of flesh-eating walkers. The mazes at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando will send guests cowering through the walker-infested wilderness that surrounds the prison and into the seemingly utopian town of Woodbury where gruesome secrets are concealed."
For the first time ever, every Scare Zone in the theme park throughout the Halloween Horror Nights will be themed to specific television shows. "Guests brave enough to walk the streets of Universal Studios Florida will encounter iconic scenes from all three seasons of the hit show - including the perilous city of Atlanta and Hershel's dismal barn - and fleets of blood-thirsty walkers who are hungry for their next victim."
Now that's one hell of a poster.
'The Walking Dead' has won Emmy Awards and has set ratings records for AMC. The series is based on the hit ongoing comic book series of same name; both the comic and the series are created by Robert Kirkman.
