The Walking Dead Escape will be held in San Diego during Comic Con. This obstacle course is in conjunction with the release of issue No. 100 of the Eisner Award winning “The Walking Dead” comic book series.
[box] “Our fans have been reading about it, watching it, and now they get to live it with The Walking Dead: Escape,” series creator Robert 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.”[/box]
The FAQ section of the “Walking Dead Escape” has the following info for those interested in participating:
The course has been specifically designed for participants with a wide range of abilities.
The world we know is about to end. An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions will sweep the globe causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. The only way to survive is to buy an Evac Pass, track the virus and get out before it is too late.
In a matter of months society will crumble and San Diego will be first of many cities to fall. Only a few will escape. Some won’t even try.
