Zombie Apocalypse: 'The Walking Dead' Obstacle Course Set in San Diego
Running away from zombies can be tiring, especially in the hit TV show "The Walking Dead." But instead of watching people run away from zombies, fans can now join in on the action -- in an obstacle course.
The people behind "The Walking Dead" will host an event over the summer that will allow fans to live the zombie mayhem and run/walk through an obstacle course at the Petco Park in San Diego.
Dubbed "The Walking Dead: Escape," which happens to be scheduled the same days Comic Con opens its doors, will allow participants to pose as "a Survivor and race through the zombie infested evacuation zone; a Walker who becomes one of the undead, embracing the inevitable; or a Spectator who watches the apocalypse from sidelines at the Escape Party," a news release said.
Zombies for the day will get to "climb, crawl and slide in an effort to avoid confrontation by hordes of Walkers," the release said, adding that it "is not a race, and Survivors are not timed, but the end is near, and they must move swiftly."
"We are literally transforming Petco Park into the early days of society’s collapse and San Diego is just the first city to fall," Robert Kirkman, the writer and creator of "The Walking Dead," said in a statement.
The event will run through July 12 and 15, which happens to coincide with the release of the 100th issue of "The Walking Dead."
