Say goodbye to cute furries and nauseating rollercoasters; The Walking Dead attraction will be giving Universal Studios in Hollywood a shot of post-apocalypse when it opens on the 4th of July.
According to Collider, the attraction will give you a good idea of what the characters have to go through during the series. At this point, you might be rolling your eyes, but the site has been restricted to 13+ and the team has put a lot of thought into it. Dystopic landscapes and live-action performances will thrust you full-pelt into the world of The Walking Dead.
The attraction has taken two years to build. Because of this, the site hasn’t been able to incorporate scenes from the most recent episodes. There will be some parts of the site, such as the break room, chosen from the comics instead of the show because it provides the perfect feature for the queuing part of the site.
The “Dead Inside” doors will be featured with 12 individually operated hands moving in 30 different ways. Since this part of the “Walking Dead” attraction will be where fans will want to take a selfie, the organisers have incorporated the “Dead Inside” section into the queue, too. This is to help the flow of people through the park.
Collider’s article explains:
“There is a combination of animatronics and live actors, lighting and sound cues, and environmental smells throughout. They also re-recorded the score for the show, so that there is a music soundtrack, as well. The scares will build, as you go along. They’ve given many of the actors more than one possible point to scare people. That way, they can keep people moving and steer them in specific directions.”
The site has several sensors which will track where people are, providing a more personal experience for you as you journey.
