Ross and I are big fans of The Walking Dead, so we were rather chuffed to hear that Thorpe Park Resort has revealed more details about its two new exclusive The Walking Dead mazes, to mark the launch of the theme park’s annual ‘Fright Nights’ season starting on 29th September; the biggest in its history.
The Walking Dead: Living Nightmare
The indoor maze called The Walking Dead: Living Nightmare will see visitors experience terrifying iconic scenes of the global phenomenon, including the world’s first live attraction featuring scenes from season seven. They will join other survivors on the brink of death at the mercy of the notorious Negan. Scenarios will include experiences of the hospital from season one through to a double storey prison inspired by seasons three and four of the global television phenomenon seen in the UK on FOX.
The Walking Dead: Sanctum
In The Walking Dead: Sanctum, guests will experience a live-action outdoor maze like no other that pays tribute to Terminus, the safe-haven with a twist. Visitors will begin their journeys following in the footsteps of survivors, experiencing first-hand how to stay alive in the face of several obstacles placed in their paths. The aim is to navigate past the roaming walkers or risk being captured.
To celebrate the launch of the two new attractions, Thorpe Park Resort is also unveiling a special Terminus Burger inspired by the series, made from pork, turkey and blood clot relish, which will be available on select dates throughout Fright Nights.
Unfortunately we are unable to make next Thursday’s press event but, thankfully, a friend of ours together with his teenage son will be testing out this years Fright Night offerings as well as bringing you all the news from the red carpet and the celebrities in attendance. Watch this space for their experience and thoughts on what Thorpe Park and Fright Night 2017 has to offer.
The new series of The Walking Dead begins on Fox in the UK on Monday 23rd October. We will definitely be watching!
