It is highly recommended that you arrive at the event 90 minutes before your scheduled entry time slot. This will give you time to park, check-in and get ready for the zombie hordes that await you.
HOW CAN I SURVIVE THE ZOMBIE HORDES AND MAKE IT TO THE END ALIVE?
We’ll be honest, this course is so intensively loaded with the undead, that it is not likely that you will survive, however if you’re agile, clever and maybe don’t mind sacrificing a few friends here and there, you may have a chance of getting to the finish with at least one of you flags and remain human.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN ALL OF MY FLAGS HAVE BEEN TAKEN BY THE UNDEAD?
This is a likely scenario but don’t panic, you are still in the game! You will NOT be ejected from the event and are still going to complete the course. Also, there will be ANTIDOTE CONTAINERS placed throughout the course. If you come across one of the containers, you may take only ONE flag of health for yourself. Please leave the rest for your fellow living humans as they will no doubt need them as well.
WHAT CAN I DO TO PREPARE FOR THE EVENT?
Zombie research would be useful. Always a good idea to become familiar with your foes. You will have many foes to deal with, that’s a promise.
CAN I DO THE COURSE IN A GROUP OR WITH A BUNCH OF FRIENDS?
Yes. There is safety in numbers, especially when confronting hordes of the undead. Remember to make sure that you and those you want to join you in the event register at the same time for the specific time entry slot you all want to start in.

WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO COMPLETE AN OBSTACLE OR ENTER A MAZE STRUCTURE?
That is your choice. There will be event personnel stationed at all of the obstacles and mazes. If you wish to avoid one, you will be shown the detour path. However, it is sometimes safer to go through an obstacle or maze than to avoid it. Some obstacles are zombie-free but the detour routes are not! Beware of this fact before you make a decision. Better to confront the apocalypse straight on.
