I just finished the first survivor run for The Walking Dead: Escape San Diego and wanted to share the first photos with our readers. For those that missed our earlier news, the baseball stadium next to the San Diego Comic-Con has been converted into a Walking Dead-themed obstacle course/adventure race.
Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, and Glen Mazzara also took part in race and we’ll have more photos and some shaky cam video later this week. I’ve included 8 photos to give you an idea of what to expect and there are also more details on The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego for those interested in giving it a try.
Tomorrow we’ll be covering The Walking Dead TV series panel at Comic-Con and we’re also going to have video from this afternoon’s comic book series panel with Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard.
Event Details: “In conjunction with the release of the Eisner Award-winning The Walking Dead Issue #100 at San Diego Comic-Con, the event takes place July 12 -15 at Petco Park, centrally located near the San Diego Convention Center. Registration is now open at TheWalkingDeadEscape.Com. There are three ways to participate in this epic adventure. Participants can be a Survivor and race through the zombie infested evacuation zone; a Walker who becomes one of the undead, embracing the inevitable; or a Spectator who watches the apocalypse from sidelines at the Escape Party.
The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego is unlike any obstacle course event in the U.S., expanding on the best-selling The Walking Dead comic book series and graphic novel storylines, allowing Survivors and Walkers to explore the initial days of the apocalypse.
“Our fans have been reading about it, watching it and now they get to live it with The Walking Dead Escape,” said Robert Kirkman. “We are literally transforming Petco Park into the early days of society’s collapse and San Diego is just the first city to fall.”
Survivors will climb, crawl and slide in an effort to avoid confrontation by hordes of Walkers, while achieving the ultimate adventure on The Walking Dead-themed obstacle course. The Walking Dead Escape is not a race, and Survivors are not timed, but the end is near, and they must move swiftly. If they’re lucky, Survivors will reach the decontamination zone at the end where it will be determined if they have been infected.”
