Long Beach Zombie Walk Logo

Infamous Long Beach Zombie Walk

You Tube Click Here

The zombie walk is an organized gathering of zombies who make their way into the streets of Long Beach by Shoreline Village and around The Pike through the Harbor (in a roundtrip 35-45 minute walk) in an orderly fashion. During the walk, participants are encouraged to remain in character as zombies and to communicate only in a manner consistent with zombie behavior, which may include grunting, groaning or slurred, moaning calls for “brains.” Pose for pictures. Dance like Michael Jackson in the “Thriller” music video. Act out a scene from The Walking Dead. Look menacing. Growl a lot and have fun doing so.


Unhallowed Haunted Maze - Infected - Zombie Invasion

"More frightening than what's available at the Queen Mary's Dark Harbor or Knott's Scarry Farm or similar professional mazes." - Grunion Gazzette

"A haunt that can be compared to a Knott's Scary Farm attraction. As a fan who indulges everything Halloween and attends all the events, I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this maze, but I was quickly impressed." - Long Beach Post

Unhallowed Haunted Maze Attraction
Everything You Fear and More...

Unhallowed Productions takes you on an intense and terrifying 3000-square-foot journey where adrenaline and fear for survival becomes a reality.

Appearing Friday, Saturday and Sunday. OPENS AT 5PM. Additional $5 fee required.

PLUS: Zombie Outbreak Cage - an Interactive Quarantine Scare Zone
