Stalking Dead
Otonabee, Ontario

ToDoOntario - Stalking Dead, 2nd Wave

Last year we thought we found the cure to the corn farmer zombie virus. There were many examples of prevention of zombie turns and we thought we were on the road to recovery from this zombie outbreak. This year the new data is telling us a very different story. Now we are discovering that it’s no longer the zombie contact that is leading the zombie apocalypse.

New zombies are appearing where no zombie contact was made and the new host did not die first. Puzzled scientists from around the world have returned to ground zero to research this new phenomenon under the guidance of the governing enterprise, Human Advancement Research Medicine. Once again, a call has been made for volunteers to help scientists with their very important work.

This experiences opens September 30th.
