The Kidd here...
Now that I've seen THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and can return from my self-imposed exile from the internet in order to avoid spoilers, I've got something pretty cool many of you may come to appreciate. Whether or not you're willing to make the trips to either L.A. or Orlando, FL, to experience it is up to you.
This rumor has been brewing for awhile, and yesterday it became official... but Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort are bringing a house based on THE WALKING DEAD to their Halloween Horror Nights event this year.
If you've never been to HHN, the entire theme parks are basically turned into a series of walk-through haunted houses, with each individual haunt centered around one particular story/theme. HHN is no stranger to using some recognizable movie/TV properties for those purposes, having built houses around the SAW franchise, NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, FRIDAY THE 13TH, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE and THE THING before in the past.
Universal really does go all out for this every year, and, while some of the houses can be hit or miss from year to year, the production value is never in question. THE WALKING DEAD alone has me wanting to make it a point to head to Orlando later this year to be scared by some walkers.
At Comic-Con, a house based around SILENT HILL was also announced, so we'll see if any more known titles become a part of HHN as we get closer to September/October.
