101 Did dead saints come alive in Jerusalem

In the Gospel of Matthew, many people in the graves came to life at the time Jesus died on the cross. And when they had been awake from death for about three days, they climbed out and walked into Jerusalem

I ask how the "zombies" passed the time for the two or three days before Jesus was raised. The risen "saints" lay in their graves for some days, then they headed for the city

Matthew 27:50 And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. ... 51 The earth shook, the rocks split 52 and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people. 

Scholars may suggest that they were "ghosts." But the Gospel itself fails to state clearly that they were just ghosts. Besides, other scholars claim that the Greek text definitely says that they came back to life. 

Recap: Many dead came to life in the graves when Jesus died on the cross. After his resurrection, the walking dead went into the city. I ask who saw them alive in their graves? And saw them climb out, stroll into the city and surprise many there. The question is, did the city people panic. And where did the formerly deceased go after visiting the city. Talk about a lack of detail.
