Zombies invaded the Grand Canyon Skywalk yesterday in celebration of Halloween, or the Day of the Dead. A creepy video documents the spine-chilling invasion of over a dozen dancers dressed as macabre zombies who started a flash mob on a glass floor suspended 4,000 feet above the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Walking the Grand Canyon Skywalk creates enough thrill for most adrenalin junkies, but the walking dead added to the adventure.
Brave visitors joined in the dance performed by the dance troupe Hot Lava Dancers on the glass bridge. The video filmed by Alley Zoom Productions with aerial photography by Beyond L.A. Productions can be viewed by clicking here.
Dancers and visitor alike were decked in non-abrasive slippers to ensure the glass-bottomed bridge would not be damaged by abrasive footwear during any “Moon Walk” moves.
"We wanted to do something fun and exciting," said Dawnielle Tehama of Grand Canyon Resort Corporation (GCRC), which is wholly-owned by the Hualapai Indian Tribe and is located in Peach Springs, Arizona. "Our Grand Canyon Skywalk continues to demonstrate its ability to transform into an entertainment venue," the Marketing Director added in a press release.
The press release revealed that the project was months in the making and restricted to a few members of the creative team and GCRC staff. GCRC welcomes millions of visitors each year to the area, which includes the nearby Hualapai Lodge, Hualapai Ranch, river rafting company and Grand Canyon West.
