Thorpe Park Resort have today confirmed the full line-up for FRIGHT NIGHTS 2017, including the arrival of what has been described as a ‘Global horror phenomenon’ – AMC’s The Walking Dead.
Headlining 2017’s event are two new mazes based on the hit US television show, The Walking Dead. Indoor maze, The Walking Dead: Living Nightmare will see guests at the terrifying mercy of the notorious Negan as they encounter iconic scenes from the hit TV show as they choose their path to try and escape and survive. Outdoor maze, The Walking Dead: Sanctum, will see guests follow in the footsteps of other survivors on their journey to refuge as they try to navigate past the roaming walkers or risk being captured.
To promote the arrival of The Walking Dead to the Island, Thorpe Park Resort unveiled a gory billboard in London featuring zombies feasting on blood and entrails, soaking unaware passing commuters in blood and guts. The zombies also took to the street with sandwich boards and golf sale signs causing quite a stir in East London.
The launch of the new The Walking Dead attractions at Thorpe Park Resort will coincide with the premiere of season 8 of the hit show on 23rd October, a season which will also include the show’s landmark 100th episode. Speaking about the new additions, Dominic Jones, Divisional Director at Thorpe Park Resort said:
“Fright Nights is THORPE PARK Resort’s biggest event of the year, and we’re hugely excited to bring the worldwide phenomenon that is The Walking Dead to our visitors. Each of the two specially built mazes are absolutely terrifying and are definitely not for the faint hearted.”
