On the one hand people were saying last year how the Lionsgate mazes had had their time and they needed a change - whether that be a new IP or new in house mazes. It's no secret that Platform 15 didn't go down too well last year so it is hardly surprising that the Resort have decided to go with an IP again. Yes, you can argue that essentially The Walking Dead is zombies, and I agree that zombies are used too much in scare attractions, however when you look at all the possibilities there are not many choices that a park can go with that isn't already heavily used. Of course you could argue that places like Tulley's and Towers implement their own stories, however the basic elements are pretty much the same - it's more about how these elements are executed rather than which ones are used. It' is kind of dismaying that people don't seem to even want to give the new mazes a chance which I do think is a shame as for all we know they could be done very well, we need to at least give it a chance.

The indoor maze called The Walking Dead: Living Nightmare will see visitors experience terrifying iconic scenes of the global phenomenon, including the world’s first live attraction featuring scenes from season seven. They will join other survivors on the brink of death at the mercy of the notorious Negan. Scenarios will include experiences of the hospital from season one through to a double storey prison inspired by seasons three and four of the global television phenomenon seen in the UK on FOX.
In The Walking Dead: Sanctum, guests will experience a live-action outdoor maze like no other that pays tribute to Terminus, the safe-haven with a twist. Visitors will begin their journeys following in the footsteps of survivors, experiencing first-hand how to stay alive in the face of several obstacles placed in their paths. The aim is to navigate past the roaming walkers or risk being captured.
