(11:41 am EST) -- Calling all teens and families of "Walking Dead" fans!

The world's first "Walking Dead" roller coaster is expected to debut at Thorpe Park in the U.K., about an hour from London.

Called The Walking Dead: The Ride, the new attraction will feature special effects -- including smells and touch elements, perhaps from some zombies...

"Guests will believe the walking dead are all around them -- like they are in their own episode of the show," the ride's creator, John Burton, told The Independent.

The new ride is expected to open this spring.
