We reported that The Walking Dead Escape: Philadelphia was postponed last week, but a new date has been announced. The official date is now March 3rd, 2013 at the Wells Fargo Center Complex in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Those who purchased tickets for the original October date have two options. A full refund can be obtained starting on Wednesday or you can switch your tickets to the new date.

On the heels of a wildly successful event in San Diego this Summer, The Walking Dead Escape: Philadelphia is unlike any obstacle course event in the nation. Expanding on the best-selling The Walking Dead comic book series and graphic novel story lines, the Escape allows Survivors and Walkers to explore the initial days of the apocalypse.

“Thousands of Walking Dead fans participated in San Diego and we promised that it wasn’t going to stop there,” said Liam Brenner, founder Ruckus Sports. “Now the people of Philadelphia are going to have their chance participate as we transform the Wells Fargo Center Complex into the early days of society’s collapse.”

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 where their level of infection – if any – will be determined by a confidential military scan. Walkers will be transformed into the undead by professional makeup teams and released on the course to haunt the living.

New for the Philadelphia Escape is the “Survivor Showdown” where five-person teams will compete on a separate, walker infested course for $2,500 in prizes.

The choice is yours. Whether you run, walk, or watch, Walking Dead fans will have a front row seat to the real-life action event of a lifetime.

Early registration is strongly recommended, as walk-ups may not be available on event day.
