Under the sewers

There's a lot of them. You could easily live there for weeks without ever getting found. Plus, you get really easy access to any part of the city whenever you need supplies.

The Archer statue next to the AGO

Great place to stash beer/hide out while a crowd of zombies shuffles past.

At the top of the CN Tower

You're guaranteed a great vantage point over the city, plus, you've got plenty of time to take zombies out as they make their way up the stairs, and stairs don't really mix well with zombies.

Inside one of those moose statues

Again, if you're stuck, you can always find a way inside one of the billions of moose statues around the city. Hide out in there until the zombies pass.

Climb a tree at High Park

Enjoy the view while everyone else runs around in panic.

Casa Loma

This place is crawling with exits and entryways. There's no way you'd ever get trapped inside.

Among the hoards

Most Torontonians have a pretty great zombie impression on hand. All you have to do is imitate yourself at 8:30 in the morning on the subway on your way to work.

Sea Kings

The intense smell of fish will overwhelm your scent. Hide among the stacks of fish carcasses and the zombies will never know you're there.

My mom's condo

This one's just a note for me, sorry guys. My mom's condo is super out of the way, and pretty high up. Ain't no way a zombie's getting in there. Plus, all the free laundry I want!

Construction sites near the water

You know, where they're building all those apartment complexes? There's plenty of materials you could use to knock zombies away if they get too close. Besides, I'm pretty sure zombies can't climb.

Hijack a ferry

When in doubt, just take one out into the middle of the lake, and wait the apocalypse out.

On top of one of the buildings at Dundas Square

Any of those tall ass buildings around Dundas Square would be great places to hide out and wait the carnage out. Plus, you get such a pretty view of the skyline!


This military base is just a little ways away, and I bet they're stocked to the teeth with zombie survival gear. I know military bases are like, always the first to go in zombie movies, but that's movieland. This is real life. You want to be where the big guns are.

Let's face it. Your local library branch probably has three people in it right now. Go take a nap among the books, because no one's coming for you there.

On top of a No Frills


Tons of access to food, and you're pretty safe, as long as you have rope for a quick getaway when necessary. Careful when you go into the building though, grocery stores are notoriously easy places to get killed at in zombie movies.

A 24 Hour Gym

There's approximately 8 million of them in this city. Run inside when necessary and you're bound to find some heavy equipment you can use take some motherfuckers out. Never forget: it's gotta be a headshot.

Etobicoke or North York Fire Station

Find a fire station in one of the quieter parts of the city, like Etobicoke or North York. Fire stations are great because you can just slide down a pole and take zombies out whenever they enter the building. Plus, those firemen's suits are fireproof, so they must be zombie-proof too.


Wait till one is closed, which shouldn't take long because they're usually closed, and hide out there. If worst comes to worst, you can just get blasted until you don't really give a shit if a zombie eats you.

Old Folk's Home

Plenty of space and food, they're usually tucked away further from downtown. Plus, I doubt it would be too hard to outrun zombies with hip replacements.


Real talk though, your best bet is to get out of the city. Go take over a cottage up north and do some swimming. You deserve it for getting out of that zombie apocalypse alive.
