For the first time ever, Halloween Horror Nights has teamed up with the TV series “Walking Dead” to produce scare houses on both coasts; Universal Studios and Universal Hollywood. Visitors will experience the horror of “Walking Dead,” in an elaborately themed, haunted maze.
“‘Walking Dead’ puts real people in horrific situations where they experience true, raw fear, and guests at Halloween Horror Nights experience the same thing,” said Jim Timon, Senior Vice President of Entertainment at Universal Orlando Resort.
Caught in the middle of a high-intensity struggle for survival, you fight off hordes of flesh-hungry, growling “walkers,” or zombies. No place is safe as you make your way through a post-apocalyptic wasteland with horror at every turn. Will you survive “Walking Dead”?

The Emmy Award-winning series “Walking Dead” is based on the comic book written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics. The series tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse. It follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home. “Walking Dead” is the number-one drama series in basic cable history.
Universal Studios’ Halloween creative teams worked with AMC and “Walking Dead,” to create an authentic experience that is true to the Emmy Award-winning hit series. Mobs of undead walkers bring to “life” the vicious, hungry, zombies from the show. In fact, as you stroll the streets outside “Walking Dead” house, hundreds of zombies could be chasing you through Universal Studios!
“We want people to experience the same terror of the walker-filled reality our characters faced in seasons one and two – and will continue to face in our third season,” said Greg Nicotero, Co-Executive Producer and Special Effects Make-up Artist for the series. “Our collaboration with Universal Studios’ creative teams is exciting as we work to truly capture the essence of the show.”
