Before Universal Studios' The Walking Dead Attraction officially opens to the public on Monday, July 4, a special opening night event was held for the all-new, year-round attraction, and it was attended by current and former cast members of AMC’s top-rated television series.
A handful of them chatted with IGN, revealing which scenes from the series they would like to see replicated for the attraction. Kyla Kenedy (Mika) answered Bicycle Girl, and lucky for her, Bicycle Girl is very much a part of the attraction. Brighton Sharbino (Lizzie) was hoping for the bloated Well Walker.
Scott Wilson (Hershel) echoed the call for Well Walker and offered up a more personal choice. "There's so many walkers and so many moments that are extraordinary," he said. "Greg [Nicotero] and his team just did wonderful things with so many walkers. ... There are quite a few. Well walker, the walker that bit Hershel's leg -- that's pretty major to Hershel. The walker in the tree was good."
Master impressionist Ross Marquand (Aaron) thought of a few thrilling moments. "One thing I'm hoping to see is when Aaron and Daryl go to the cannery and they get taken over by the hundreds of zombies that fall from of the Wolves' trap," he offered. "That would be awesome to see. The Wolves' attack on Alexandria -- that's personally what I'd love to see."
The show's third season was on Michael Traynor's (Nicholas) mind. "The prison was a pretty awesome setting. Woodbury! Those, like Alexandria, are fantastic because it's elements we recognize from our world today -- all these cute little storefronts and all that stuff -- but then it's just been turned into this militarized, post-apocalyptic barricade against the onslaught of death."
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!
