First-Look/Making Of The Walking Dead Attraction in Universal Studios Hollywood
If you love watching “The Walking Dead” then you will be so excited to see that Universal Studios Hollywood is opening a new attraction on July 4th! As part of this exciting announcement, Universal Studios Hollywood is revealing its first image and behind-the-scenes look into the making of its new permanent walk-through attraction based on AMC’s record-breaking television series, featuring Greg Nicotero, executive producer and director of “The Walking Dead.”
The captivating two-minute video features insightful commentary from Greg Nicotero, executive producer and director of “The Walking Dead” as he tours his LA-based special effects studio, KNB Efx, which is responsible for masterfully creating the show’s—and now the attraction’s—realistic decaying walkers!
Universal Studios Hollywood has worked collaboratively with AMC’s “The Walking Dead” for years as a signature “Halloween Horror Nights” maze. This newly enhanced venture will take 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 is partnering with “The Walking Dead’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 will not only inspire the emotional connection fans experience, it will be among the attraction’s key distinguishing characteristics that will define it as a living representation of the show.
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 Walking Dead” attraction will deliver an uncompromised realistic environment that brings guests even further into the most watched show in cable television history.
