That’s right, now you too can experience the world of zombies. Forget Disneyland, here comes Zombie Land!

UPDATE: We’ve tried it out and lived to tell you all about it. Read our walk-through experience right here!

Of course, I shouldn’t be calling it Zombie Land like that’s actually the name of the place. It’s much more specific and way better, because this is basically The Walking Dead: The Ride, we’re talking about.

A similar attraction has been an event for the Halloween season at Universal Studios previously, but now they’re doing a permanent version, so you can get attacked by zombies year round. And yes, we’ve known this attraction was coming at the Universal Studios amusement park in Los Angeles for a while, but it just became a whole lot more real since an opening date was revealed…

It’s the national holiday of the 4th of July of this year, which means the wait is almost over.

Now we can all celebrate the independence day of the United States of America by being attacked by zombies. Sort of like The Purge but with zombies! What’s not to love?

Incidently, The Purge 3: Election Year premieres on July 1, so that’s another little horror treat in time for the 4th of July weekend. You can watch a new trailer for it right here!

Also, the amazing talented make-up and special effects artists from The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead are making the zombies for this, so it’s like the real deal.

Watch more in this video from Universal Studios:

Also, we will actually be in L.A. this July – by pure lucky horror coincidence – so we promise to return with a review of The Walking Dead attraction at Universal Studios. If we survive this zombie land, that is!

I write reviews and recaps on Heaven of Horror. And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women. Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. Go figure!
