Director Eli Roth’s Goretorium maze might have struggled to lure horror fans, but one amusement company isn’t giving up on the possibility of a year-round scare attraction in Las Vegas. Montreal-based Triotech announced last month that it was conceptualizing a new on-foot experience based on AMC show Fear the Walking Dead (an offshoot of The Walking Dead) due next summer for the Fremont Street Experience—as if that thoroughfare wasn’t already a gauntlet of freakdom. (Requests sent to Fremont Street Experience and Triotech to uncover the attraction's exact location and other details remained unheeded at deadline.) Despite a year-round Walking Dead maze already in existence four hours away at Universal Studios Hollywood, Triotech plans to use its immersive and interactive production ingenuity to create something unique. Said its president and CEO Ernest Yale during last month's International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions Expo in Orlando: “This walkthrough attraction really will be a first of its kind.”
