The Walking Dead Escape Comic-Con San Diego 2014
The Walking Dead Escape first originated at Comic-Con 2012 at PETCO Park with an overly successful debut. It has since expanded to Baton Rouge, Houston, Atlanta, Tampa, and Hartford and other major cities.
The course, which has already thrilled tens of thousands of participants since its debut, allows fans to participate as “Walkers” or “Survivors” as they climb, crawl, and slide their way through various zombie-infected evacuation zones. Those lucky enough to make it to the decontamination zone will have their level of infection assessed and then participate in the event’s Fan Experience.
Those participating as Walkers will be transformed into the undead by professional makeup artists, and they’ll receive “zombie training” prior to their release on the course. Keeping in the spirit of entertainment and accessibility to all, The Walking Dead Escape is not a race, and its participants will not be timed or required to run.
