It’s a ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE! Will you survive?
Participants will navigate the land of the un-dead by utilizing designated “safe zones” and will have to creatively use various items to aid in survival; all while avoiding rampant zombies trying to take your life (aka flags).
Participants will be divided into flights (groups of 10 to 15 people) and will start approximately 5 minutes apart from each other. Each flight will be led by a trained guide from safe zone to safe zone.
Space is limited so please register early.
Family-friendly Hour, 4:30 – 5:30 PM: Want to participate in the event without as much scare & surprise? Join us for the slower-paced, but equally fun, family-friendly version. Our zombies are instructed to take it easy to ensure each participant, no matter what age, has a great time! This hour is suggested for those ages 10 & under.
Zombie Apocalypse, 6:00 – 8:00 pm: Let the real apocalypse begin! As the sun sets and an eerie fog rolls in, the night will be set for the ultimate zombie obstacle course. Please wear comfortable shoes and clothing for running through the course. Suggested for those ages 11 & older.
Pre-Registration before 10/21: $9 ($14 N/R)
On-Site Registration: $10 ($15 N/R)
Interested in becoming a zombie? We need zombies, ages 14 & older, to be transformed into the undead by professional face painters, and chase humans from 2:30 – 9:00 pm. All volunteers must arrive by 2:30 pm. Volunteers will receive food and beverages prior to the event. Volunteer spots are limited. Call (630) 232-4542 to reserve your volunteer zombie spot.
