The Liberty Science Center wants you to run like your life depends on it…or at least pretend to. Throughout Columbus Day weekend the popular facility will host an interactive zombie survival event called Get Fit or Get Bit! The only way to make it out alive is to break a sweat while learning new fitness skills.

Those up for the challenge will first participate in Zombie Survival School, where they’ll learn everything they need to know about avoiding creatures from the dead (crawling, shooting, dodging obstacles and more).

If you still think you have what it takes, then the final stop is the Zombie Maze! It’s filled with lurking zombies eager to take the flags off of you (kind of like flag football) and the only way to get through is to use the new fitness and survival skills you mastered at school. The lucky ones who escape their untimely demise will be awarded a Zombie Survival Certification!

All ages are welcome and the best part about this: it’s free!
