Join us on a lights-on tour of The Walking Dead house at Halloween Horror Nights 23. The tour points out details to look for in the Walking Dead themed areas.
This photo essay of The Walking Dead haunted house and some of the scare zones reveals secrets and elements along the way. If you prefer to be completely surprised, read this article later! We also want to warn you that some of the images may be graphic.
This scare zone is themed to a season 3 episode titled “Clear”. Note that many of the lighted messages are the word “clear”.
The agreement with The Walking Dead producers is that no living characters are featured at Horror Nights, only walkers. Which explains why letters are missing from a name on the R.V. here, while in the show the name on the side is complete.
Ravens are on the R.V. antenna. They are part of this year’s Easter Egg hunt for guests to spot where the ravens are in each of the houses. These ravens are Easter Eggs for the scare zones, and everyone can say they saw a few of the ravens!
This is the entrance to the Walking Dead house, dubbed No Safe Haven. It’s based on season 3 of the show. The arrow points to one of the rare times where a scareactor is outside a house. A walker is chained here. You often see guests living dangerously and posing for a photo with the walker.
In the show, The Governor has heads in fish tanks. Here, with the lights on, the tanks have been drained of water to avoid problems that happen with stagnant water. For Horror Nights, the heads are secured with fishing line to always face outward.
The hours 10 and 2 refer to the times the Horror Nights lights-on tours used to leave. (This year the first tour time was changed to 10:30 a.m.) 6 p.m. refers to the earliest Horror Nights will open on a night.
Here’s a walk-through of the whole house using infrared, taken with special permission by Universal during regular operating hours:
This tour was part of an “Unmasking the Horror” tour. This year Universal offers two different versions of the tour. Each version visits three houses. If you take both tours in one day you’ll see six of the eight houses. A regular day park ticket is not required to take a tour. Each tour is $59.99 separately, plus tax. Or both in a single day for $99.99, plus tax. Details at halloweenhorrornights.com
