Emergency on Horsebarn Hill! The zombie outbreak has begun. Rogue researchers at the Storrs Campus have unwittingly unleashed a super-virus that turns passersby into undead, brain-eating zombies! This is not a drill.
YOU WILL NEED TO RUN 2.5 MILES THROUGH ZOMBIE-INFESTED GROUND TO ESCAPE. WE HAVE ESTABLISHED CHECKPOINTS ALONG THE WAY TO HELP KEEP YOU SAFE.
As part of our evacuation, you and every member of your survival team will each receive THREE health flags. These flags will protect you from TWO zombie encounters, but once the third flag is gone, the zombie curse will be irreversible. To escape the infected zone, you and your team will have to run between safe zones along the top of horse barn hill, through the trails of the UConn Forest, and past the farms at the bottom of the hill.
Prizes will be awarded to our fastest human survivors!
IT IS ALSO ENCOURAGED THAT YOU GO INCOGNITO TO EVADE ZOMBIE DETECTION. As an added incentive, prizes will be given to the individuals or teams with the best costumes!
Access to our survival services will require a donation of $10. With that $10 reservation, you will be guaranteed admission to our Fall Festival and free, delicious crisis treats. If we survive, all proceeds from the event will go to HuskyTHON and the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.
For your own sake, sign up today! If you don’t, I fear that none of us will make it out alive before UConn is quarantined… and doomed to become a permanent ZOMBIETHON.
CHECK-IN TIME: 2:00 PM – 2:30 PM
