SouthParks News now has a full round up of today's announcement
, including details of both new The Walking Dead Mazes.
From a personal point of view I do find the choice of The Walking Dead as an IP an interesting one. Whilst it is less popular than it once was, the show does still have a significant following, something which will no doubt work to Thorpe's advantage. The fact that season 8 of the show launches in October will also help further promote interest in the mazes as it will bring the IP to the forefront of people's minds and in theory make them want to visit Fright Nights to experience it for themselves. I am hoping that as these two new attractions are IP based this means that they will be high quality additions as the IP owners surely will not allow Thorpe to open anything sub standard as it would damage The Walking Dead brand.
hursty has raised a very good point with regard to those who haven't yet watched The Walking Dead. I am hoping that the mazes will have some form of story beyond just being Zombies trying to get you and it will be interesting to compare the reactions of those who watch The Walking Dead, compared to those who don't.
