Course Information

  • The average time for a Survivor to complete the course is 35-45 minutes.
  • The Walking Dead Escape is not a race. No one is timed, and you are not required to run, but the slow usually die for a reason. Be prepared to climb, crawl, and slide. The Evacuation Route will feature multiple obstacles to go over, under and around.
  • Depending on the Walkers you encounter, Survivors may need to move briskly or lightly jog in an effort to avoid infection.
  • If you cannot complete an obstacle, you can still complete the course. It’s been specifically designed for participants with a wide range of abilities plus each obstacle includes an “easier route” for participants with limited physical abilities.
  • There are water stations on the course.



General Participant Rules

  • Along with their print at home tickets, Survivors and Walkers should bring photo ID to the event.
  • If a participant under age 16 doesn’t have a photo ID, their parent or guardian’s photo ID will be accepted.
  • Participants must be at least 14 years of age on the date of the event – no exceptions.
  • All participants are expected to be respectful, safe, and courteous on and off the course. The course was designed to create a fun experience; common sense applies.
  • Absolutely no weapons allowed (real or otherwise).
  • Costumes are allowed (and encouraged).
  • Sensible footwear applies – closed-toed shoes/sneakers strongly suggested.
  • No handheld devices (cameras, video cameras, water bottles, etc.) are allowed on the course with the exception of wearable cameras i.e. Go-pros.
  • All decisions by officials are final and binding.
  • Any Participant who does not comply with these official rules will be banned.



Survivor Rules

  • Survivors must arrive 30 minutes prior to your registered start time.
  • As a Survivor, your goal is to make it to the Evacuation Zone without any contact with Walkers (since the Government believes the infection is spread by touch).
  • If you come in contact with a Walker during the course, you will still be able to complete the course in its entirety. You may not “fight back” (after all, there is no point – you’re doomed anyway).
  • At the end of the course, Government scientists will be waiting to perform a confidential scan to determine whether or not the virus has infected you.

WHAT TO WEAR

  • Dress in loose, comfortable clothing that allows you to outrun a zombie. Clothes may get snagged, don’t wear that brand new jacket.
  • Close-toed shoes/sneakers are your best footwear choices. Sandals, flip flops or any type of open toed shoes are prohibited (we’re pretty sure at some point along the evacuation route, you’ll thank us for this).



Walker Rules

  • Walkers must arrive 2 hours prior to your registered start time for registration, makeup and training. No exceptions for late arrivals.
  • As a Walker, your goal is to haunt your assigned area of the course as brainlessly and brutally as possible.
  • You will receive professional makeup and training prior to your shift.
  • Walkers may keep their makeup on after finishing their shift.

WHAT TO WEAR

  • Long sleeve shirts, sweatshirts or blouses are highly recommended since our makeup gurus will not have time to transform your arms.
  • Thrift shop clothing or older, ripped jeans, pants, shorts etc.
  • Stained, oversized, or torn shirts—basically shirts you won’t mind having destroyed.
  • Worn down sneakers or comfy everyday shoes that you won’t mind seeing fake blood on.

WHAT NOT TO WEAR

  • Sandals, flip flops or any type of open toed shoes are prohibited.
  • Again, our artists may decide that shirt would look great with a ton of blood on it. DO NOT wear anything you’d mind having altered or stained.



Waivers

  • Everyone must sign a waiver before participating in The Walking Dead Escape. No exceptions.
  • You may print out a waiver and bring it with you to the event or they will be available on site during registration.
  • All Walkers and Survivors under the age of 18 require a parent or guardian present to complete a waiver. If parent or guardian is not present, participant may bring a signed, notarized waiver from their parent or guardian.



Registration and Refund Policies

  • Registrations and spectator tickets should be purchased in advance. Walk-up purchases may be available but are not guaranteed.
  • All registration and ticket purchases are final with no refunds.
