AMC’s The Walking Dead Returns to “Halloween Horror Nights”
At Universal Orlando The nation’s insatiable appetite for AMC’s The Walking Dead will continue to terrify Universal Orlando Resort when the most intense moments from season five of the critically-acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning television series take a bite out of “Halloween Horror Nights,” beginning Friday, September 18.
Following in the footsteps of “The Walking Dead” cast, guests will begin their journey at the Terminus safe-haven compound, where an unspeakable hunger has consumed the demented souls of those dwelling within. As the chaos ensues, guests will encounter even greater atrocities as they stumble upon dismembered “W” walkers, witness the horror of victims besieged by the living dead, and step onto the loading dock of the Del Arno Food warehouse to face hordes of “W” walkers.
This all-new experience will feature twice as many, never-before-seen walkers and will be situated within an entirely new theme park location.
