If you happen to be in Los Angeles starting July 4, Universal Studios will be opening a “Walking Dead” themed attraction there.

Forbes spoke with Greg Nicotero, a key executive producer of the show, spoke about how it works:

It’s a permanent retelling of our storyline from the beginning. We see the hospital, we see the prison, we see aspects of the show that are iconic and lead the participants through high points of The Walking Dead.

He told Hollywood Reporter:

“This is a great opportunity for them to walk in the footsteps that Rick has walked in, that Daryl has walked in, by entering this attraction and getting a little bit of the greatest hits of what we’ve done over the last six years. Everything that we used on The Walking Dead television show, we have re-created here in painstakingly gory detail.”

Ross Marquand, who plays Aaron, got to sample the exhibit before it opened.

“I did notice, a few times, my reflex was to kind of tense up and go for my knife, but there’s no knife,” he told the L.A. Daily News. “I loved it. It stayed true to what they actually have in the show, kind of going through season one all the way up to where we are now.”
