The Undead are Needed!

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: Canada’s Cold War 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.

Zombie Positions

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!

Mindless Horde of Zombies
Mindless Horde zombies should possess a love of zombies and the enjoyment of terrifying others.

Human Sacrifices
Because zombies need someone to eat.

Zombies 14 and under must be accompanied by an undead guardian.
