Happy Scaring!


The Undead ZOMBIE pool in now FULL for 2017!


Are you a leader among the undead? Do you have what it takes to lead a mindless horde? Are you the best brain-eater, a super-shuffler, or the greatest groaner?

The Diefenbunker Museum is looking for Lead Zombies AND the Mindless Hoard of Zombies for this year’s Incident at the Bunker: a Zombie Adventure, presented in partnership with The Haunted Walk of Ottawa.

Incident at the Bunker: A Zombie Adventure runs October 14, 28, 29 and November 4.

Lead Zombies

In helping bring this immersive experience to “life”, Lead Zombies co-ordinate zombies in certain sections of the Diefenbunker, contribute and provide feedback to improve the experience for all guests and problem solve as needed. If you have ever created your own haunted house or done the Zombie Walk in the past, this opportunity is for you! Lead Zombies should be able to commit to at least three days, as well as a training session on Sunday October 1, from 1:30 to 4:00pm.

Mindless Horde of Zombies

Mindless Horde zombies should possess a love of zombies and the enjoyment of terrifying others.  It would be great if you could attend the training session on Sunday October 1, from 1:30 to 4:00pm.

Non-zombie Roles

If you would prefer not be a zombie, but want to participate, we do have a few non-zombie roles. Be sure to let us know when you reach out.

Zombie Training

Date: Sunday October 1, from 1:30 to 4 pm
Where: Diefenbunker Museum, 3929 Carp Road

Come learn how to scare!!! Training includes a tour of the museum, so you’re familiar with the area where you’ll be stationed and it also includes a zombie make-up tutorial and scare training.

How to apply

If you think you have what it takes to dress up and scare people, please email us at zombies@diefenbunker.ca by September 28th. Previous experience as a zombie is considered an asset.

High school students: volunteer hours count towards your community service hours.

E-mail your interest to zombies@diefenbunker.ca or call Rachel Wilson at 613 839 0007 for more information.
