A 19th-century mansion built on the site of the 1842 Battle of the Salado, Victoria’s Black Swan Inn is known as both an eccentric wedding destination and a purportedly haunted locale the Travel Channel series Ghost Adventures found to be “home to a mysterious, dark presence.” Host to regular paranormal investigations, “haunted cocktail tours” and “Slumber Not” parties, the old inn ups the ante this Halloween season with an Espiritu de La Noche Masquerade Ball (Oct. 29) and this weekend’s slightly less elegant Zombie Survival Chase. Presented by the event company Dark Mayhem and billed as “an interactive experience that brings your zombie apocalypse nightmares to life,” the chase sets participating humans and zombies (take your pick) loose in a “winding labyrinth of trails in the infected woods.” Living or undead, the challenge entails searching for clues and scavenger hunt items along an obstacle-filled course and reaching the “Quarantined Safe Zone” with as many tag flags (pinned to humans to represent vital organs) as possible. Beyond no-brainers like sneakers and “bloodsucker” repellant, Dark Mayhem recommends chasers bring flashlights or headlamps and a change of clothes — “including underwear for those unexpected scares.”
