Moundville Penitentiary Ghost Tour
Want to see what it is REALLY like to spend the night in prison – but with no living residents…..! Tour the facility with a guide for about ninety (90) minutes, and then roam the halls on your own. See who you can “find” living in the Sugar Shack or North Hall, look for patients in the psych ward, visit with Shadow Man - if he is home, or try to sleep in a cell – we dare you!
The Original Zombie Infested 5K Obstacle Course
Anyone can run. But everything changes when you’re running for your life. Test your speed, strength and endurance through miles of man-made and natural obstacles—all while being chased by hungry, merciless zombies.
This obstacle course race is like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. And hopefully, it won’t be your last. Waiting at the end of this zombie infected 5k—aside from a possible brain craving—is an apocalypse party to die for. Celebrate your survival or imminent zombie transformation at this one-of-a-kind festival complete with live music, games, food, drinks, and anything else that you need to party like it’s end of the world.
