Comic-Con Hosting a Zombie Survival Simulation at Petco Park This Summer

For those looking for the oddest assortment of aliens, robots, vampires and superheroes, Comic-Con is the place to be. This year, add something new to the mix: a horde of shuffling, moaning zombies. The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego is a new obstacle course at Petco Park that will run during this year’s Comic-Con, in conjunction with the release of issue #100 of the Eisner Award-winning The Walking Dead comic series. “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.” The obstacle course will take place during the initial days of the apocalypse presented in the comics. Participants can choose to be a “survivor,” a “walker” (a.k.a. zombie) or a spectator. The “survivors” must try to make their way from the initiation station to the decontamination zone without being overtaken by the “walkers.” The “walkers,” in full, grisly make-up, must do anything they can to taste human flesh.
