As we mentioned previously, Stan Lee’s Comikaze, LA’s largest Pop Culture convention (owned by comic legend Stan Lee and Horror icon Elvira) have just announced a 75k sq ft Zombie Apocalypse obstacle course in addition to their 250k sq ft convention, set for Sept 15-16 2012 at the LA Convention Center .
The website states that a previous convention in the LACC left all attendees infected, and turned into zombies. Making light of a bad situation, Comikaze dares their attendees to run, slide, climb, and crawl through one of the best-planned zig- zagging obstacle courses-all while being chased by flesh-eating zombies. The course is set in a way that any one can make it, even if turned to a zombie! Each obstacle is designed with easy but more zombie infested ways, and takes about 35 min to complete. The Zombie Apocalypse is conveniently located in Hall K, which has been infested next to the main Stan Lee Comikaze expo hall.
The course is not recommended for children under 12, and costs an additional $30.
Tickets are limited-so buy now!
If being a survivor is not your thing (and brains are what you crave), fans can pay between $75-$150 to be transformed into a zombie by SFX artists and receive training. Only then, can they terrorize to their hearts’ content.
Zombies are a big part of our culture; being that we have Norman Reedus (Daryl from Walking Dead) and Tony Moore, original Walking Dead artist.
If the kids or wife don’t want to try their luck with a Zombie, they can check out a panel (while you try to survive). “I am really proud of this course, no other zombie course have been like it. This will set the standard!”, says Comikaze CEO Regina Carpinelli.
Zombies not your thing? Never fear!
