For specific rules regarding Humans and Zombies, please visit that page.
General Rules of Play
- 18+ ONLY! You will be required to provide proof of age upon check-in. No parental signatures, no parents/legal guardians in person to sign a waiver for you. No exceptions. Kids under 18 are allowed to spectate and hang out at the starting point- the area’s first silent disco will be going on throughout the game in which all ages can participate in.
- Review the rules for Humans AND Zombies
- TWO HAND TAG! Zombies must use BOTH hands in order for a tag to count. If there is a dispute, please refer to a Monitor instead of fisticuffs.
- Do not trespass onto private property.
- Do not run across our neighbors’ lawns. This is trespassing and is disrespectful, so stay on the sidewalks. We don’t want to hear reports of any property damage.
- Be respectful of our neighbors. Don’t go on their property and if someone asks you what you are doing, explain to them this is a game and move on.
- This is a dry event. Do not bring alcohol to the game, there’s plenty of time for libations after the game is over. Do not bring any either.
- NO BIKES, SKATEBOARDS, ROLLER BLADES, ETC. Only Monitors are allowed to use non-automobile modes of transportation as a convenience due to the nature of their role.
Safety and Survival Tips
Safety is the #1 concern. Do NOT do anything that will put yourself and other participants at risk of bodily harm.
Remember, if you get hurt in the game, you get hurt in real life. No one else is responsible for your behavior or your safety besides yourself. Basically, it’d be rad if no one has to go to the hospital that night so don’t be “that guy.”
- HYDRATE! Bring water with you!
- Wear reflective gear/clothing
- Be aware of your surroundings. Some streets will be closed to thru-traffic, some will be open. PAY ATTENTION!
- Do not run or chase someone into oncoming traffic. The safety of you and those around you is more important than worrying about a Zombie attack.
- Do not attack anyone
- No weapons of any kind including replicas/toys during game play
- No alcohol/drugs
- Keep a cellphone with you in case of an emergency
- Keep an eye out on the weather and dress accordingly.
- Try to stay with at least one person! Sounds lame, but the buddy system is a good thing, especially if someone gets hurt. Remeber, you only have to be faster than the slowest person you’re with.
Remember, the fire department has enough job security dealing with dumb people who hurt themselves doing dumb things. Let’s not be those people. Use your head and play safe.
