Add castles to your road trip around Scotland.

Visit Scotland posts regular updates on where to go and what to see in Scotland.

I toured Scotland in a campervan last year and was amazed at how empty it was even in the height of summer and also how welcoming everybody is.  We toured in the wilds of Scotland and stayed overnight in campsites and also took advantage of Scotland’s acceptance of free-camping.

A perfect mix of community and getting away from it all.

The California theme park has featured the ‘The Walking Dead’ as a Halloween Horror Nights maze for several years, but now offers the themed walk-through attraction 364 days of the year.

Guests come face to face with live and animatronic ‘Walkers’ that are said to be indiscernible from characters from the show.

To ensure authenticity of the attraction, Universal Studios Hollywood partnered with The Walking Dead’s creative team, including Greg Nicotero and KNB Efx, to develop prosthetics, utilize original moulds and painstakingly apply paint and detailing to attraction walkers.

“The Walking Dead is a phenomenon that has successfully and consistently affected the psyche of viewers on a global basis since its debut,” said Larry Kurzweil, President of Universal Studios Hollywood.

“We have taken its authenticity to the next level by collaborating with the show’s award-winning production team to create a thrilling, living representation of the series that can only be experienced at Universal Studios Hollywood.”

The Walking Dead attraction is located within an entirely new custom-built structure, situated within an expansive building complex just inside the theme park’s main entry.

Due to the intense nature of this experience, the attraction is not recommended for guests under the age of 11.
