"Walking Dead" effects head Greg Nicotero is approving the ride's features, Hill told Inside the Magic.
"Battle of Survival" is a dark (meaning indoor) ride featuring projection screens, 3D glasses and interactive elements, Hill said, as well as animatronic walkers and real fire, water and wind elements. The ride, which was previewed at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions annual expo, will also feature characters from the series, Hill said.
Riders will be able to choose their own weapon (from among the "TWD"'s iconic ad-hock armory, such as the katana and crossbow) and the attraction will have multiple endings, he said.
"The whole point is to collect supplies and defend yourself against walkers," he said.
In one possible ending, the rider is unsuccessful — ending in the wrong kind of feast.
