Fear the Walking Dead: Survival Attraction Heading to Vegas’ Fremont Street Experience This Summer

Published

on

The Fremont Street Experience, a five-block entertainment district located in historic downtown Las Vegas, will soon be home to a new attraction, “Fear the Walking Dead: Survival,” scheduled to open during the summer of 2017.

Both thrill-seekers and zombie fanatics should enjoy this unique multi-sensory experience inspired by the hit AMC series, which combines a thrill ride, escape room, maze, and interactive gaming, all set against the horrors of a zombie apocalypse. The attraction, in the heart of Fremont Street Experience, is in partnership with TRIOTECH, a Canadian company who is a leader in creating high profile, technologically-advanced interactive media-based award-winning attractions.

“Fremont Street Experience is always looking to create the optimum experience for our guests, including tourists and locals alike. Among our many other attractions and events such as SlotZilla and the Downtown Rocks summer concert series, this new attraction will not only benefit downtown Las Vegas, but the city as a destination,” said Fremont Street Experience CEO and President Patrick Hughes. “We’re excited to partner with TRIOTECH, a leader in creating innovative and immersive attractions in the entertainment sector, along with AMC, which is home to some of the top rated, most critically acclaimed, fan-favorite programs on television.”

The groundbreaking attraction will feature elaborate sets, all-encompassing audio and video, as well as high-tech motion simulator technology. Upon entering into the “Fear the Walking Dead: Survival” experience, guests will find themselves in the setting of a temporary military facility set inside a junior college amidst growing rumors of a zombie outbreak. Brave souls will have to explore the inner-workings of the military-controlled facility, which includes multiple zones and various experiences, to face their fears and protect their lives against a bloodthirsty hoard of the infected. Visitors will need to utilize their survival skills and instincts to fight off the never-ending zombies to hopefully escape back into the real world.

“Fremont Street Experience is a tourist destination known for its unmatched variety of entertainment, making it the perfect home for this futuristic, immersive, interactive attraction,” said Ernest Yale, President & CEO of TRIOTECH.

“We are delighted to give the passionate fans of ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ such a unique on-the-ground experience that really captures the physical thrills and intensity of emotion of the series,” said Linda Schupack, EVP of Marketing for AMC and SundanceTV. “We hope that in this instance, what happens in Vegas does not stay in Vegas and that visitors will spread the ‘Fear’!”

Fans of the cult-following TV series “Fear the Walking Dead” will immediately recognize many of the attraction’s features, but even those unfamiliar with the AMC show will love the fright-filled, exhilarating attraction – only available at Fremont Street Experience. AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead” is the second highest rated drama on cable TV and the fourth highest rated on cable overall in 2017.

“Fear the Walking Dead” will return for the second half of Season 3 with two back-to-back episodes on Sunday, September 10th, beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.

Published

on

Netflix’s “Trollhunters” isn’t a series I’ve had the chance to check out for myself. Nothing against the kid’s horror series, I just haven’t had the time.

That said I’ve heard good word-of-mouth regarding the series and being that it comes from the mind of Guillermo del Toro it can’t be a total waste of time. Especially with a cast featuring Ron Perlman, Steven Yeun, and Anton Yelchin.

If you’re like me and haven’t given the show a go yet, then make sure to check out the following promos below and then make your mind up from there. You have to hand it to the series as it looks utterly stunning. Hope the actual content holds up. Only one way to find out!

“Trollhunters” is created and executive produced by Guillermo del Toro. Executive producers include Marc Guggenheim, Rodrigo Blaas, Christina Steinberg, and Chad Hammes. Dan Hageman and Kevin Hageman are co-executive producers.

Voice talent for includes Kelsey Grammer (“The Simpsons,” X-Men: The Last Stand), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Steven Yeun (“The Walking Dead”), and Anton Yelchin (Fright Night).

“Trollhunters Part 2” is now streaming on Netflix.
