Zombie Walk, Spooky Skate to Provide Thrills for Hockey Fans Oct. 22
Omaha - Maverick Nation will become “Zombie Nation” Oct. 22 as students, family and friends of the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) participate in a UNO Zombie Walk prior to that night’s game against the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) at the CenturyLink Center Omaha.
The Zombie Walk will begin at the downtown DoubleTree Hotel and continue to the arena before the start of the game. All zombie walk participants will gain free admission to that night's game, which starts at 7:07 p.m.
After the game, the last before Halloween, fans are encouraged to stick around for a “Spooky Skate” with the team.
Preparation for the zombie walk starts at 4 p.m. with makeup artists located at the DoubleTree available to zombify participants. Students interested in participating are asked to meet at Mojo Smokehouse in the Aksarben Village for shuttle buses to the hotel. Shuttles will begin running at 4:15 and continue until the start of the game.
After the game, students can ride the shuttle back to Mojo’s for a contest, which will award prizes for the Best Male Zombie and Best Female Zombie.
Those not interested in competing are encouraged to stick around for the Spooky Skate. Spooky Skate participants are asked to bring their own skates for the event.
