The Walking Dead Escape Re-Infects San Diego Comic Con

The Walking Dead Escape returned to its inaugural city during San Diego International Comic-Con.  Limited this year to only 2 days (July 25-26), Petco Park was packed full of Survivors slinking, running, jumping and dodging Walkers. At the end, all participants are invited to join the after party which included a bride and groom who, let's just say, probably didn't have the best end result. 

Skybound debuted The Walking Dead (TWD) Escape at San Diego International Comic Con in
2012.  Two years later the infection is still spreading. New York Comic Con 2013 offered walkers, survivors and spectators a chance to escape on the USS Intrepid Aircraft Carrier Sea, Air, & Space Museum.  Since then, TWD Escape's immersive zombie obstacle course has infected many U.S. cities allowing fans to live out the events from the groundbreaking, Emmy-award winning AMC series, which is based on Robert Kirkman's Eisner Award-winning best selling graphic novels.

There were three ways to participate in this epic adventure; as a “Survivor” racing through the zombie-infested evacuation zone with familiar scenes and props from the show and comic book series; as a “Walker" in the undead horde or as a “Spectator” watching the apocalypse from sidelines at the Escape Party.

Survivors can climb, crawl and slide as part of the adventure and to also avoid confrontation by hordes of Walkers. The Walking Dead Escape is not a race and Survivors are not timed. The goal is for the Survivors to reach the decontamination zone where their level of infection - if any – is determined by a confidential military scan. Walkers are transformed into the undead by professional makeup teams and released on the course to haunt the living.
