This weekend is one to not let slide for any Walking Dead fans. Adjacent to the San Diego Convention Center (which once again is the venue for this years San Diego Comic Con) is Petco Park. Throughout the year, it is a sports and seasonal concert venue. This weekend, it will be invaded by The Walking Dead. This year, there is more to do than ever.
The Walking Dead Escape: Returning this year is a maze unlike any other. Built throughout many areas of the stadium, this escape will take you face-to-face with characters from the television series. The event requires you to run, hide and even crawl your way through. This interactive experience runs the weekend of July 10th and 11th from 6pm to 11pm.
