Last night, Thorpe Park Resort launched The Walking Dead: The Ride at a special VIP Launch event which saw invited guests descend on the Island to experience the Resort’s headline attraction for The Year of The Walking Dead. Attraction Source was amongst those invited to experience the Resort’s newest attraction. (Please note this article may contain some spoilers).

Located at the centre of the Island, as you approach The Walking Dead: The Ride you are greeted by the ‘Safe Zone’ entry compound – an area surrounded by mesh fencing, corrugated iron gates, with a prison watch tower standing tall looking out over the main queue. The area features a number of nods to the TV show, including references to The Prison, Terminus, and the Alexandria Safe Zone. IMAscore’s haunting soundtrack plays out across the area, creating an eerie atmosphere for those who are waiting to enter the attraction.
