The Walking Dead Escape @ Petco Park 

 

The Walking Dead has been a pretty good trend-setter in the entertainment business, from having a talk show about The Walking Dead air immediately after it every Sunday to now having an obstacle course filled with Walkers trying to devour those who dare to run it. The 35 to 45 min course was rigged up in San Diego's Petco park, consisting of cargo nets, slides, chain linked fences, oh and blood thirsty zombies. At first read this sounds great for any fan to partake in...but it does come at a price, to be made up as a zombie by Greg Nicotero's team costs a wopping $90, to run the course is $75 (with a Walking Dead #100 comic book waiting for you at the end) and to sit on the sidelines and watch is $15. Now, being made up as a walking carcass is what most would want but I myself didn't have it in me to fork over an arm and a leg...hehe, just to run a obstacle course. But what I did do is volunteer to help out in return for a Limited Edition #100 Walking Dead Poster. I arrived at 9:30am Friday the 13th for my shift. We were advised that registration would be delayed a bit, We were briefed on what to expect and what roles we would play in the obstacle course, I opted to not volunteer for signing in folks that would run the course. I ended up being placed as a FEMA infection scanner. Armed with a hazmat suit and black light we were instructed to scan the survivors as they near the end of the course...How do we scan them? you ask, the walkers along the course are drenched in clothing detergent which glows under a black light, thus if a runner gets touched by the walker he or she is possibly infected. If it is hard to visualize this take a look at the video blow for a full run of the course. The video was shot by a random runner, you can notice me @ 21:56 telling incoming runners to put their hands to in order to be scanned within the biohazard zone. Plenty of runners made it through and the whole experience was pretty cool especially for a fan of the show. Only sales will determine wether or not this event takes place again at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con. What would you do? pay $90 to become a Walker or $75 to run the course, sound off below.
