Halloween Horror Nights to feature 'The Walking Dead' themed maze

Event runs from Sept. 21 to Oct. 31 at Universal Studios

ORLANDO, Fla. – Guests running in fear at 2012 Halloween Horror Nights will be able to experience the "walkers" from the popular television show "The Walking Dead."

Universal announced Wednesday the Emmy Award-winning AMC series will be the theme of elaborately themed, haunted mazes during the annual event at Universal Studios.

It marks the first-time Universal Studios has featured a television series at Halloween Horror Nights on both coasts.

"We want people to experience the same terror of the walker-filled reality our characters faced in seasons one and two - and will continue to face in our third season," said Greg Nicotero, Co-Executive Producer and Special Effects Make-up Artist for the series in a news release.

On Saturday, Universal announced the first theme of one of the haunted houses, and it's based on the popular video game and movie series, 'Silent Hill'.

This will be the first time the park has ever brought a video game franchise to Halloween Horror Nights. In 'Silent Hill', you explore different dimensions and fight all kinds of monsters. The park says it's now working with the video game creators and film makers to create the experience at Universal.

The event starts on Friday, September 21 and runs through Wednesday, October 31.
