$10 Thursdays for Zombie Boot Camp at The 2016 Scream Zone

Released: October 13, 2016

News photo DEL MAR, Ca. (October 13, 2016) Zombie Boot Camp is now open at The Del Mar “Scaregrounds” and proves to be a dirty, scary fun addition to The 2016 Scream Zone. Even better, it will be a screaming $10 deal on the two remaining Thursdays of its run through October 31! This is the only event of its kind in the greater San Diego area.

Developed as a basic training course for Zombie survivalists, groups of participants must crawl, climb and run through multiple obstacles together and face-off challenges in a simulated zombie outbreak. Depending on how fast participants can run, it could take 15 minutes or more. All participants must be 18 or older with a valid ID, and a liability waiver must be signed. Athletic attire and footwear are encouraged.

This year’s Scream Zone also introduces a wicked VIP experience with two visits through all three Haunts in one night; a fast pass to the House of Horror and the Haunted Hayride; and a two-drink coupon for adult or non-alcoholic beverages. Zombie Boot Camp is not included in the $75 VIP package.

The Scream Zone Haunts include: THE HOUSE OF HORROR featuring room after room of frightening and surprising visual and visceral experiences. Imagine being trapped and moved by a bevy of clowns or shaken, rattled and upended so that you don’t know where or who you are within the black hole of darkness! KARNEVIL is everything carnival and freak show, including the weird and surreal trailer park of clowns and a death spiral that leaves visitors disoriented and terrified. THE HAUNTED HAYRIDE piles visitors into a wagon with an unknown destination. Ride through the cold black night terrified and filled with hallucinations, zombies and other creatures of the night.

Parents are welcome to enter The Scream Zone compound and wait for their daring kids. (The Scream Zone is not recommended for children under 10 years old.) The parent lounge is free and there are lots of things for adults to enjoy -- including food concessionaires, vendors and adult beverages.
