Hordes of flesh-eating, blood-drooling and groaning “walkers” will infest Universal Studios’ backlot when “Terror Tram: Invaded by The Walking Dead” comes to life at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights event at Universal Studios Hollywood.
AMC’s “The Walking Dead” has a significant presence at this year’s “Halloween Horror Nights” in addition to the “Terror Tram.” An immersive new maze, “The Walking Dead: Dead Inside,” based on the compelling series will also debut at the event.
Mirroring AMC’s Golden Globe-nominated, Emmy Award-winning TV series, “Terror Tram: Invaded by The Walking Dead” will expose guests to a legion of plagued zombies in the aftermath of the disease’s cataclysmic spread to the West Coast.[ Also Read: You’re Invited to become a Living Zombie ]
The world of television fantasy will collide with grim reality when “Terror Tram: Invaded by The Walking Dead” pits guests face-to-face with a swarm of living corpses doomed to stalk Universal Studio’s famed backlot—-the heart of the world’s most famous horror moviemaking studio.
“The juxtaposition of the backlot’s rural setting amid a small town devastated by a horrific plane wreckage complements the TV series’ sets almost to a tee and provides the ideal backdrop to showcase the ‘walkers’ from AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ on a grand scale,” said John Murdy, creative director, Halloween Horror Nights.[ Also Read: Hyundai Unveils Zombie Survival Machine ]
