Season Three of the hit AMC TV show will be the focus for both theme parks for Halloween Horror Nights beginning September 20.
San Diego Comic Con fans won’t be the only ones to come face-to-face with walkers from The Walking Dead. Universal Studios theme parks are going all-out for the hit AMC show this Halloween. Fans with a voracious appetite for AMC’s The Walking Dead will have a chance to walk in the footsteps of human survivors when Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort debut all new terrifying mazes inspired by Season 3 of the critically-acclaimed, award-winning television series at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights events beginning September 20.
The eerily authentic and disturbingly real maze experiences will place Halloween Horror Nights guests at the heart of the show’s once impenetrable prison, the West Georgia Correctional Facility, now overrun by hordes of flesh-eating walkers. The mazes at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando will send guests cowering through the walker-infested wilderness that surrounds the prison and into the seemingly utopian town of Woodbury where gruesome secrets are concealed.
Universal Orlando is also dedicating its entire Halloween Horror Nights street experience to The Walking Dead – making this the first time ever that all of the scare zones throughout the park will be themed after a hit television series. Guests brave enough to walk the streets of Universal Studios Florida will encounter iconic scenes from all three seasons of the hit show - including the perilous city of Atlanta and Hershel’s dismal barn - and fleets of blood-thirsty walkers who are hungry for their next victim…
The Golden Globe-nominated, Emmy Award-winning series The Walking Dead is based on the graphic novel written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics.

The Walking Dead is the first original cable series ever to end the broadcast TV season as the number-one show for adults 18-49. AMC’s The Walking Dead returns for season 4 on Sunday, October 13 at 9pm ET.
