Robert Kirkman and Skybound Entertainment release Walkers (zombies) at Petco Park during Comic-Con 2012! This event will definitely be VERY cool. It’s definitely something a lot of people will be looking at and hopefully participating. There are registration fees involved so that may limit some people from participating. All participants get an exclusive The Walking Dead #100 Variant! This event goes from Thursday, July 12th to Saturday, July 14th in “waves”. Tickets for Survivors start at $70 (May 10 – June 9) then move up to $80 (June 9 – July 10) and increase to $90 at Comic-Con. There are no pricing yet for participants who wish to be a Walker or to be in a Spectator Party. Check out their website and see if you would like to be either a Survivor, a Walker or just a Spectator. Everyone should have a blast! The press release follows.
Robert Kirkman, the creator/writer of The Walking Dead comic book series and graphic novels and Skybound.com announce their first event, The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego. In conjunction with the release of the Eisner Award-winning The Walking Dead Issue #100 at San Diego Comic-Con, the event takes place July 12 -15 at Petco Park, centrally located near the San Diego Convention Center. Registration is now open at TheWalkingDeadEscape.com. There are three ways to participate in this epic adventure. Participants can be 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.
The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego is unlike any obstacle course event in the U.S., expanding on the best-selling The Walking Dead comic book series and graphic novel storylines, allowing Survivors and Walkers to explore the initial days of the apocalypse.
“Our fans have been reading about it, watching it and now they get to live it with The Walking Dead Escape,” said Robert Kirkman. “We are literally transforming Petco Park into the early days of society’s collapse and San Diego is just the first city to fall.”
Survivors will climb, crawl and slide in an effort to avoid confrontation by hordes of Walkers, while achieving the ultimate adventure on The Walking Dead-themed obstacle course. The Walking Dead Escape is not a race, and Survivors are not timed, but the end is near, and they must move swiftly. If they’re lucky, Survivors will reach the decontamination zone at the end where it will be determined if they have been infected.
Whether taking part in the event as a Survivor, Walker or Spectator, participants will be amazed at the interactive displays and The Walking Dead references along the course. Early registration is strongly recommended, as walk-ups may not be available on event day. This summer, The Walking Dead will be taking over Petco Park and fans will have a front row seat to the real-life action event of a lifetime.
