Thank you!!

To everyone who braved the cold and wind to come out last night to participate and/or volunteer….. THANK YOU!!

We had an amazing turnout and an even more amazing time. So many great costumes, such fun people, and so many zombies. A few humans survived the great zombie takeover of Ghent last night but official numbers are not in yet.

We will be counting waivers and the number of people who signed back in today and hopefully have an official number by tonight. Did we break a world record? We’ll find out soon!

Thank you again to our wonderful volunteers for ensuring a smooth game went down, to the participants for coming out and having a great time, to our neighbors for putting up with us, and to our sponsors for their support in helping to make Survive Norfolk happen.

Thank you for another successful Survive Norfolk.  


Tonight, Tonight

Alright little zombies, today is the day! Are you ready to Survive Norfolk? Are you ready for the most epic game of tag in your life?

Yeah, we thought so!

If you haven’t seen them yet, the waiver and map are now available. Remember, only a limited number of copies of the map are available so it is best to bring your own.

 Want a hint? Check this out. 

Please make sure you review all the game information including where to park, how to play, etc.

Remember, Survive Norfolk is rain or shine! We’ll see you on the streets tonight!

Pre-Registration is over but the fun is just beginning!
