The new walking dead attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood

Recommended Posts

It's a walk-through with scare actors and animatronics. Similar to their mazes at Halloween except with a better fit out because they have a bigger budget for a permanent attraction.

From what I've read they'll change it up during Halloween Horror Nights by adding more scare actors.

It sounds pretty good and a real improvement in terms of quality on the old House of Horrors attraction that was there.

The original House of Horrors was still a top notch attraction IMO. Since it was a permanent walk through it definitely had better detail than their mazes for Halloween. 

A nice welcomed changed though and I am all for refreshing it every few years instead of eliminating the attraction all together.

Lets just hope it doesn't have it's usual 3 hour wait like the Halloween Horror Nights version, ha.

Thanks Clayton! Just please credit the original source, share a link to a report, etc. Even give us your thoughts on the topic maybe, after all it is a forum.

^From what I've read, they have set it up so it can be changed up, which is good. Walking Dead's popularity will eventually run it's course.

What House of Horrors lacked to me was moving parts, some nice sets, but nothing much happened.  WD seems to have a lot more interaction and heaps happening. The Halloween Horror Nights overlays for House of Horrors were always the weakest maze IMO, it didn't loan itself to being a haunt maze well. Don't get me wrong it's all relative, still lots of fun, but I thought the other mazes were better.

I remember the Mummy walk-through before House of Horrors. Waiting, waiting, waiting for someone to jump me - nothing, and then at the very end with daylight in sight, this guy dressed as an Egyptian statue totally got me.

Can we not downvote posts based on someone's history? Clayton's actually added something worthwhile here.

Yep, that's what I was trying to point out with my post 

It IS almost worth down voting for using hashtags (in a non-comedic way) on a forum though :P

It looks really great. I wish I could see it in person. Maybe someday Warner Bros Movie World or Dreamworld could get the rights to include The Walking Dead attraction if its possible. Although it is missing certain parts like Woodbury & Terminus.

      (I'm only imagining how many eye rolls that this title would have received... 😂)
      So I know this is a 'cliche' topic and has been discussed several times, but I just want to know peoples thoughts to the following;
      Many say that Australia can't accomodate a Universal Studios park due to the small population that Australia has, yet Singapore has only got a population of 5 million?
      As well as that, Universal Studios Singapore only has about 20 attractions - in comparison to Movie World that has 24 - and it's size isn't ALL that big (It literally surrounds a lagoon).
      I can understand why a Disney park wouldn't work in Australia, but I feel like a Universal Studios park has potential?
      Anyway, I'm a curious person and just want to see/hear what other people think about this.

      Hi everyone firstly I couldn’t think of a good title, secondly over summer I am going to go to Florida and California for the first time, I already have passes to Walt Disney World and Universal and I have a few questions.
      1) Are there any other recommended theme parks.
      2) Should I bother to also go to Disneyland.
      3) Any recomended must see shows, rides or attractions.
      4) And any tips or things to look for.

      Wow after heavy investment in Wizarding World of Harry Potter, a new Jarasic Park now Universal Studio Japan is going to have the first Mario Land.

      So I just came back from a trip to Japan and managed to get to two parks, universal and Fuji Q.

      Unfortunately the only day I could get to Fuji Q it was very cold and all the coasters were shut. Totabummer, especiallyly when you travel 2 hours to get there. I supose I should have checked the weather. I did get to ride a flame 4 times in a row and checked out their haunted house/hospital which was interesting. I ended up having four Japanese school girls cowering behind me the whole time which was hhilarious They also have a prison break type atraction which was fun, although I only got through the first stage.
      What I would like to know have any of you guys been there and would it be worth visiting again? The coaster did look impressive.
      I did manage to get to a a full day at USJ, and had a ball. I was especially imprimpressedh the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The themeing was immaculate. It really captured the essence of the franchise. I have never been to disney but imagine this is how their parks look, or have universal just out done hem?
      Also wow Harry Potter and the Forbidden Forest is the most amazing experience. From the theming of the queue to the walk though to the ride itself. I have never been on a dark ride like it. I would be interested for those of you who have ridden it do you feel the same or am I just out of touch with what the new standard is? Is there anything else out there like it? I managed to get two rides that day and could wipe the smile off my face after each ride.
      Lastly I also noticed what looks like an interted or flying coaster being built there in the jarassic park secition. Does anyone have any details on what its going to be?
      I will post some happy Snaps when I get to a PC
