Homegrown zombies straight from Saint-Leonard are heading south to Las Vegas for the summer, courtesy of a company that specializes in building amusement park attractions.

The installation will open on Fremont Street in Old Las Vegas, and it’s themed after the television series Fear the Walking Dead.

Currently it’s being tried out at Triotech’s factory on focus groups.

“They’re going to tell us what part they like, what part they don’t like, and then we’re going to tweak the experience to make it as good as it can possibly be,” said Ernest Yale, the company president.

The attraction combines “immersive reality” with animatronics — think something along the lines of a combination amusement park ride and an IMAX theatre.

It’s slated to open in Las Vegas in July.
