Course Information:

  • The average time of completion is 35-45 minutes.
  • The Walking Dead Escape is not a race. No one is timed, and you are not required to run, but the slow usually die for a reason.
  • Be prepared to climb, crawl, and slide.
  • Depending on the encountered Walker, you may need to move briskly or lightly jog in an effort to avoid infection.
  • You will not be disqualified if you cannot complete an obstacle.
  • The course has been specifically designed for participants with a wide range of abilities. Each obstacle is created to include an "easier route" for participants with limited physical abilities.
  • The Evacuation Route will feature multiple obstacles such as cargo nets and barricades.
  • There are water stations on course.

Survivor Rules
