It’s approaching October, and that means it’s time to think about Halloween. Many theme parks roll out plans for the holiday, and Universal Studios Hollywood is including the popular Walking Dead franchise in their Halloween Horror Nights. The event runs from September 21 – October 31, and zombies will be there in spades. Hordes. Whatever. There will be plenty of undead.
If you love zombies, it sounds like it will be an event to remember. The back lot at Universal will be transformed into a rural town that’s been torn apart by a plane crash. An attraction called “Terror Tram” will take you to the heart of the event and make you face the Walkers. Bejeezus, just typing that makes me feel a little queasy (I’m a wimp). If that’s not enough for you, you can also go through a couple of mazes. One is called “The Walking Dead: Dead Inside,” and as you try to find your way out, you’ll be forced to encounter more zombies. If your heart hasn’t given out, you can check out the maze inspired by the video game franchise Silent Hill.
As for me, well, I went to a haunted house/trail thing once and spent the entirety of it with my face buried into a friend’s coat. As much as I like zombies, I’ll be sitting this one out.
