Zombie Season at the Diefenbunker

Posted: October 17, 2012 in Emergency Preparedness, Events, Local Community, Public Programs, Visitors Services, Volunteering

The zombies have arrived! We have officially launched Zombie Season in the museum. Kelly Eyamie, our resident zombie expert, was feeling a bit lonely so we recruited over 40 zombie volunteers to help her out. Last weekend’s zombie training was a huge success, and everyone got to learn about zombie motion, gashes, and particularly zombie food (braaaaaiiiiiiins.) Kelly has kindly put up a Pinterest board with lots of how-to’s to transform yourself into a zombie.

Tonight was Cold War Cinema, featuring the cult classic Dawn of the Dead, and we had our first zombie sightings.

This is a very scary movie, and as soon as the scary music started (you know something bad is going to happen when the scary music starts) Diefenbunker staff started backing away.  I don’t know how we are going to survive zombie season if a movie already scares the living daylights out of us.

The next three weekends will see even more zombies at the Bunker. Incident at the Bunker: A Zombie Adventure will run every half hour starting at 2pm. You can purchase tickets at either The Haunted Walk of Ottawa or at the Diefenbunker. This is a truly scary partnership, so watch out, and above all take care not to get infected by the zombies.

Enjoy the zombie season, and we hope to see you and all your undead out at zombie headquarters!
