On the heels of its Wizarding World of Harry Potter opening, Universal Studios is hyping up a fantastic theme park summer with another iconic pop culture attraction.

Over the July 4th holiday, Universal Studios Hollywood will unveil a Walking Dead attraction, based off the hit AMC television show.

The description of the attraction, directly from Universal Studios’ page, says:

Coming to life July 4, enter the post-apocalyptic world of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” in an all-new year-round attraction. Prepare to fight for survival in a fully immersive journey as you navigate through a world overrun by hungry walkers. Follow in the footsteps of the human survivors as you battle your way through nightmarish iconic landscapes that bring the most popular cable TV show in history to life!

The attraction’s creators will be using molds used during the show’s filming to authenticate the experience.  Animatronic “walkers” will blend with real-life actors, and props will be replicated from the TV series.
