Stan Lee teaming up with Elvira at Comikaze and unleashing a zombie apocalypse obstacle course upon the unsuspecting population. That is unsuspecting until now. I’m turning green with envy. Read on for the latest news.
Los Angeles (August 30th 2012) – Stan Lee’s Comikaze, LA’s largest pop-culture convention, owned by comic legend Stan Lee and horror icon Elvira, have just announced a 75k sq ft Zombie Apocalypse obstacle course in addition to their 250k sq ft convention floor, planned for Sept 15-16 2012 at the Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC).
According to the Stan Lee’s Comikaze website, a previous convention in the LACC left all attendees infected with the zombie virus. Making light of a bad situation, Comikaze dares their attendees to run, slide, climb, and crawl through one of the best-planned, zig-zagging obstacle courses – All while being chased by flesh-eating zombies! The Zombie Apocalypse is conveniently located in Hall K and takes about 35 minutes to complete.
The Comikaze Zombie Apocalypse costs an additional $30.00. The course is not recommended for children 12 and under.
Tickets are limited – So get yours today!
If surviving the Zombie Apocalypse is not something you’re interested in, fans can pay between $75.00 – $150.00 to be transformed into a flesh and brain eating zombie by SFX artists. Zombies are expected to terrorize, chase, and infect the survivors to their heart’s content.
Stan Lee’s Comikaze embraces all zombie culture. There will also be appearances from Norman Reedus (Daryl from Walking Dead), and Tony Moore, the original Walking Dead comic artist.
“I am really proud of this course, no other zombie course has been like it. This will set the standard!” says Comikaze CEO, Regina Carpinelli.
Are zombies not your thing? Never fear!
