- $25 for one entry pass to Escape the Walkers: A 5K Zombie Mud Run on Saturday, March 23, at The Slaughterhouse (a $50 value)
- $45 for two entry passes (a $100 value)
Escape the Walkers: A 5K Zombie Mud Run raises hairs and gets pulses racing with a mud-caked course festooned with challenging obstacles overrun by the living dead. Race participants sign up as zombies or test their bravery as runners, who wear six “life flags” that zombies try to snatch in their cold, dead hands. Runners can participate in groups or take their chances alone; survivors will receive faux gold medallions, and casualties are awarded tinfoil medals. When the dust settles, zombies and humans set aside their differences and enjoy an after-the-apocalypse party with music and other entertainment.
Waves of around 250 race participants begin at 8:00 a.m., and launch every half-hour. The last wave begins at 10:30 a.m. Check out the race’s rules and additional information here.

About The XscapeHouse
With The XscapeHouse, The Slaughterhouse, and Apocalypse, visitors have a variety of experiences to choose from. Guests looking to test their puzzle-solving and communication skills can tackle The XscapeHouse. In their escape room, Human Experiment, teams of 4-10 people have 60 minutes to escape before they become victims of Dr. Drago's evil human experiments. The XscapeHouse isn't as scary as the other attractions, but it is designed to be very intense and challenging. At The Slaughterhouse, brave ghost hunters can embark into the depths of four haunted houses where nightmares lurk in themed houses. Alternatively, adventurous guests can form teams of four and wield laser weapons to battle zombies in Apocalypse, an interactive zombie quest.
By hosting haunted houses and other horror events, the company has raised more than $250,000 for organizations such as the American Diabetes Association.
