This news almost made us throw up from excitement. A zombie filled obstacle course? Add to that it will be totally open to the public? Count us way the hell in! Read on for the official word.
In celebration of The Walking Dead’s 100th issue, Petco Park will be turned into a zombie apocalypse obstacle course just in time for Comic Con.
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the comics publisher Skybound and writer-creator Robert Kirkman are teaming for The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego, an obstacle course where participants can do one of three things: be a survivor and race through a zombie-infested evacuation zone; be a walker who joins the ranks of the undead; or a spectator who watches from the sidelines during an Escape Party.
The event, set to run in conjunction with San Diego Comic Con on July 12-15, will celebrate the 100th issue of the Image/Skybound Comic series that inspired AMC’s popular zombie drama.
“Our fans have been reading about it, watching it and now they get to live it with The Walking Dead Escape,” Kirkman said in a statement. “We are literally transforming Petco Park into the early days of society’s collapse and San Diego is just the first city to fall.”
The course, while not a race, is designed to be an experience where participants can experience interactive displays and Walking Dead references along the course, which when completed will determine whether or not you’ve been infected.
Registration opens May 16 at TheWalkingDeadEscape.com.
