Scruffy Dog Continues Partnership with Merlin Magic Makers By Bringing The First Walking Dead Ride to Life at Thorpe Park


Park guests need to be careful at Thorpe Park in the UK as the Walkers have made their entrance in the new coaster The Walking Dead: The Ride. Scruffy Dog provided its turn-key services, under the creative lead of John Burton, to Thorpe Park in order to make the terrifying TV show come to life. Throughout the development of the coasters theming, Scruffy Dog worked alongside Merlin Magic Makers creating the story, the narrative for all spaces, the theme book and the visual content. Afterwards, the theming elements were manufactured by the Scruffy Dog team in the Birmingham workshop and moved to Thorpe Park to finish up with scenic treatment and the theming process.
