The Walking Dead Indoor Roller Coaster, Guests Screaming

Ride this Indoor Rollercoaster, in the dark!

From the moment you join the queue line, you leave Thorpe Park behind and step into an immersive episode of the world-renowned horror TV show: The Walking Dead. 

This indoor rollercoaster features live-action role play, terrifying actors and an immersive pre-ride show. It may be housed under a giant, ominous roof, but this non-powered rollercoaster features a drive tire lift hill and high-speed drops of almost 10m. It’s proof that you don’t need to turn upside down for a thrill ride experience that’ll make your heart race!  

This theme park attraction combines a rollercoaster ride with live actors, so you can escape real Walkers at 45 km per hour. But be warned, the journey to the safe zone involves riding this horror themed rollercoaster in the dark! 

Inspired by The Walking Dead, the iconic AMC television series, this ride is dedicated to creating a full-on themed experience. Walkers are hiding around every corner!  On The Walking Dead: The Ride, it’s Fright Nights all day, every day!

The Walking Dead: The Ride Reviews

By the time you get to the roller coaster - the safety zone light flashing before you - your heart is already racing.
-
The Mirror

If you like The Walking Dead then you’ll love this immersive experience. The theming around the coaster and general attraction area is very detailed
-
Theme Park Incorporated

The combination of sensory deprivation and a constant sense of movement is certainly unsettling.
-
Radio Times

The worst part of the ride is that you don’t know what’s going to happen around each corner – it’s also the best part.
