NEW For 2018: The Year of the Walking Dead

Posted By Marc

THORPE PARK Resort has announced The Year of The Walking Dead, a series of unmissable events throughout the 2018 season from when the theme park re-opens on 23rd March!

Following on from the invasion of the show for last year's Fright Nights, which saw the introduction of 2 new mazes and roaming actors, the resort are introducing series of extras throughout the season, all with a The Walking Dead theme. These include:

The Walking Dead Living Nightmare Extreme - The return of the resort's scare maze at its most terrifying. This is running through May Half Term (25th May - 3rd June)

Zombie Hunt - an extreme battle for survival in woodland on the outskirts of Thorpe Park Resort for the six weeks of summer (21st July - 3rd September)

Fright Nights.- the resort's hugely popular Halloween event returns with a Walking Dead theme (select dates between 5th October - 31st October).

Details on how different the extreme version of Living Nightmare will be are unknown. Equally, further details of the Zombie Hunt and it's exact location are unknown. We also do not know if these will be upcharge experiences.

As well as this, the resort will open its gates 10am till 10pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays between the 26th July and 1st September. This is unlike the resort's previous summer event (Summer Nights), as we expect all attractions to be open all day and no extra ticket required. Furthermore, Saw Alive will be open during these dates!

THORPE PARK Resort’s Divisional Director, Dominic Jones said, “THORPE PARK Resort is known for offering a thrilling day out, so it’s no surprise that we’re launching The Year of The Walking Dead by giving our scare actor hopefuls auditions at height on one of our rollercoasters. We want our guests to be able to immerse themselves in each unmissable experience that we have to offer throughout the 2018 season, and what better way to do this than to have the best team in place?” 

The Year of The Walking Dead is sure to bring plenty of surprises, so much like if you were in a zombie apocalypse, keep on your toes...who knows what else could be waiting for us...
