Default Walking Dead ride

Sally Corp. will be promoting it's new "Walking Dead: Battle For Survival" dark ride at the upcoming IAAPA convention.

Considering that the show is Rated R in nature, I wonder how they're going to do it. Especially if they're doing it for a theme park.

Curious...Universal does Walking Dead houses for Halloween Horror Nights so I'm curious if it's for them (though I've heard no rumblings about it)...maybe going in overseas where it may be a little more tolerable but not sure how big the show is there...Universal Orlando does have interactive Men in Black ride that this concept could fit into nicely without much change needed at all...hmmm

I haven't heard if it has a buyer yet or not. They usually can sell the same design in various markets without overlap, unless the design is licensed to only one park chain (like the Justice League for Six Flags). Sally usually builds one prototype, then keeps all the schematics, molds, artwork, etc so they can quickly reproduce it again. So yeah, they could take an existing ride and do an overlay or retrofit to give it new life.

"Walking Dead" does seem like a perfect tie in for their beauty products. Maybe get a coupon for a makeover after your ride.

I got curious after reading this last night and tried to do some research...Sally was at last year's IAAPA with a generic zombie attraction so I'm curious if they have simply obtained the license to actually use The Walking Dead from AMC to help sell it but with no real buyers lined up...here's the vid from last year https://youtu.be/SUrH7ONqoMc it looks really good
