The Walking Dead makes unprecedented return to Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights with Terminus-themed maze
After two wildly successful appearances in Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights, AMC’s The Walking Dead will return for a third consecutive year – a first for the event – and this time it will be inspired by Terminus, the mysterious location the survivors arrived at when Season 4 ended…and discovered it doesn’t seem to be the haven they hoped for.
This year’s bone-chilling mazes will place guests at the heart of a harrowing journey to seek sanctuary at Terminus, an elusive destination that promises community for all. Mirroring the terror that befell the residents of the West Georgia Correctional Facility, now overrun by savage walkers, the experience will send guests fleeing from the fallen prison into unknown territory as they once again stage a desperate battle for survival against flesh-eating walkers and ruthless humans.
The Walking Dead is based on the graphic novel written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics. The series tells the story of the months and years after a zombie apocalypse. It follows a group of survivors, led by sheriff Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home. The Walking Dead is the number-one show on television for adults 18-49. AMC’s The Walking Dead returns for Season 5 this October.
“This has been an incredible collaboration and I am thrilled to be working once again with the creative teams at Universal Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood to bring the world of ‘The Walking Dead’ to our dedicated fans,” said Greg Nicotero, Executive Producer and Special Effect Makeup Supervisor for the series. “I can’t wait for visitors to experience first-hand some of the iconic moments from Season 4 in what will be the biggest, most exciting and frightening ‘Walking Dead’ maze to date.”
