Part of my Halloween Horror Nights 23 (HHN) adventures was taking the Unmasking the Horror Tour. This tour takes fans on a behind the scenes look at their haunted houses. Our tour took us into 6 of their 8 houses. I decided to break them each up into their own post in order to give a better look at each of them. This is a behind the scenes look at the “The Walking Dead” house.
The first room was where the Governor tortured people as you can see from all of the tools. At night, zombie Milton was standing behind the table to greet you. The pathway leading to the next room had a cool zombie trapped in the corner. This was to keep you distracted for what came next.
Now I’m sure you recognize this. My face lit up when I saw all the heads in the tanks. Of course at night they were filled with water, and lit up so that you could see them better. While you were checking out the heads, the Governor’s daughter would come running out from behind the tanks to scare you. She even had the bag over her head.
After that awesome scene you had to duck down, and go through this small fenced in pathway. Ok, you could go around, but that’s no fun. At night there would be zombies on the other side watching you. The best part was the surprise waiting for you as you stood up after getting out. In the video you see the Woodbury Post Office, and behind that fence you would find a scareactor-playing zombie Merle.
From there you see the flatbed that was by the front of Woodbury. You can see things like a machine gun, ammo, and some golf equipment. At night there was often a scareactor with a machine gun up there watching for zombies.
Then we enter one of the best rooms in any of the haunted houses. Here we go through the fences that surround the prison. It might be hard to tell in the video, but you basically had fences on both sides of you as you followed the path. At night there were plenty of zombies on the other side of the fences, including the awesome zombies in the riot gear. Also, it was very dark, and misty making it quite the scene to walk through. It was cool looking up at that guard tower.
If you are a fan of the show I don’t see how you could not like being in this house. It was such an awesome feeling being in scenes similar to the show. It was also great seeing scareactors that looked like characters on the show. And like I said, that fenced in area to get in the prison was one of the best rooms of the whole event. This certainly topped last year’s Walking Dead house. So that was a look at “The Walking Dead” house. If you have any questions about the house or HHN, please feel free to ask. Also if you want a better look at a specific pic from the video just ask.
