Set to debut this summer, the “Walking Dead” walk-through attraction will be housed in a permanent building on the upper lot near the main entrance that will be open to visitors 365 days a year.

Universal said the new “no-holds-barred experience” promises to be significantly more intense than recent Horror Nights iterations of the maze, with more detailed set designs, props, costumes, makeup and animatronic figures.

The Emmy Award-winning AMC zombie apocalypse television show on which the attraction is based remains a ratings juggernaut. The new permanent maze will reunite “Walking Dead” executive producer Greg Nicotero with Horror Nights creative director John Murdy.
