Zombies tap into humanity's two greatest human fears: wandering aimlessly through life among the equally forsaken masses, and fire. Run away with this Groupon.

As part of the OctoberFAST Halloween celebration on Sunday, October 28 at 9 a.m., runners must speed their way through a zombie-infested course, avoiding costumed participants intent on ending their run—and their lives. Each runner dons a set of flags to act as health points, as each flag removed by a zombie brings the runner one step closer to death. Though not included with the Groupon, other race-day events include drag racing, kids' crafts, a "pumpkin patch" and a karting costume contest. Trophies will also be given out throughout the day.
All manner of motorized vehicles race down twists and turns at NOLA Motor Sports’s 600-acre racing facility. Exotic racecars roar along an international-standard racetrack, whereas professional go-karts harness their speed on a smaller scale. Motorcycles join their four-wheeled cousins during regular bike races, as spectators look on jealously, yearning for the day when humans finally evolve wheels of their own.
