A Walking Dead walk-through maze has previously been offered during the theme park’s annual Halloween Horror Nights celebration but will now be open year-round due to its growing popularity. The permanent attraction will be housed inside a new structure and will feature a few spooky improvements, reports Entertainment Weekly. With “authentic walker make-up effects, sophisticated animatronic walkers, substantially more detailed set design and costuming, and highly recognizable props replicated from the series,” it is expected to be even more fear-inducing than the original.

Check out the first teaser for the attraction, which is set to open this summer, below.
