AMC joins forces again with Skybound, Robert Kirkman’s imprint at Image Comics, and Ruckus Sports for the fourth The Walking Dead Escape.
The official zombie obstacle course of The Walking Dead will take place at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York City on Sat., Oct. 12, in advance of the fourth season premiere of the The Walking Dead on Sunday, October 13th at 9pm ET/PT. Skybound and Ruckus Sports brought the first The Walking Dead Escape to San Diego during the 2012 Comic-Con weekend and AMC joined forces for the 2013 The Walking Dead Escape San Diego. The event allows fans to live out the events from the groundbreaking, Emmy® Award-winning and top-rated AMC series, based on Robert Kirkman’s Eisner Award-winning best-selling The Walking Dead comic book series and graphic novels.
The course is open Sat., Oct.12 from 6:45 pm – Midnight. Survivors 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.
“Coming off the success of The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego in July, we are excited to continue to bring our fans an even bigger and better experience this fall. As promised, we have upped the ante with celebrated and renowned new partner, AMC,” said Liam Brenner, founder of The Walking Dead Escape and Ruckus Sports. “With AMC’s creative prowess, we are confident that this year’s ‘Escape’ events will be the most action-packed and thrilling yet. We know fan expectations are high and we will deliver beyond their wildest imaginations.”
