Sally and AMC Collaborate!
Sally Corporation has created an all new interactive dark ride concept based on the hit AMC television series ‘The Walking Dead’. “Battle For Survival”, debuted at the International Amusement Parks and Attraction’s Expo held in Orlando, FL Nov. 17-20.
Seen in over 123 countries, ‘The Walking Dead’ is the No.1 show on television among adults 18-49 and has just been renewed for a seventh season. Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman, this gritty drama portrays life in the weeks and months following a zombie apocalypse.
Sally’s thrilling new dark ride concept features a unique combination of technology and artistry that takes riders deep into the world of ‘The Walking Dead’. They will battle “Walkers” in a post-apocalyptic landscape where the living dead are a reality and extinction of the human race is just around the next corner.

Story and game play are balanced perfectly to create a scary, fun and exciting adventure for all theme park visitors.
