Zombie Apocalypse is over for the 2019 season. Thanks to all the players who participated this year. Hope to see you again in 2020.
Enter an Apocalyptic nightmare where the success or failure of your mission will determine the fate of humanity.
A tactical, live-action zombie shooting experience combining elements of the "Call of Duty" video game combined with "The Walking Dead" television show and touch of Escape Room mystery. Find your objectives, fix the satellite communications system, locate the bomb that will destroy the zombies, secure the zombie serum- save the World!
A plague has turned most of the world's population into flesh eating zombies. Only a handful of human survivors remain. Scientists in a highly secretive research laboratory have developed a vaccine but have been overrun and destroyed before being able to deliver the serum to the military. The vaccine is safe, locked away in a secluded lab where only a crack team of highly skilled soldiers like yourself can reach it.
You and your team are tasked with finding the lab, securing the vaccine, set the nuclear device and get back safely to headquarters. You have a semi-automatic weapon with tactical flashlight, 100 rounds of zombie killing ammo, a special plaque proof mask and an electronic health sensor.
You're armed. The zombies aren't.
Negotiate your way around four acres of apocalyptic nightmare that includes an entire town, farm, munitions dump, a maze of trails, a castle, hilltop military installation, laboratory and a heck of a lot of zombies.
Find the clues left by the retreating scientists that guide you to your objectives, search for the nuclear device that will eliminate the zombie epicenter, secure the serum from the locked laboratory on the hilltop military base and get back to civilization to save humanity. Not a bad night's work.
Ages 10 and up. Children 14 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Questions and Answers:
When does it happen?
Zombie Apocalypse runs every Friday, Saturday and Sunday starting July 19th and ending August 25th.
What is the cost?
It is $28.50 (plus tax) per person. If you have a group of 10 or more players the price drops to $24 (plus tax) per person.
How does it work?
You will join in with (up to) 7-9 other players and a squad leader (one of our staff) to form a 'special forces squad' and wander around four acres of zombie infected landscape shooting the walking dead as you make your way to the secret laboratory and the anti-zombie vaccine.
If it's dark, how will I see?
Your special zombie killing gun will have a tactical flashlight attached. As well there are spooky lights placed strategically around the field to add to the eerie atmosphere.
Will I be shot at?
No. The zombies are unarmed. But there is always the small chance someone in your group could accidentally shoot you so you are provided with protective gear. Shooting other players is strictly prohibited.
Will the zombies actually touch me?
Absolutely not. Even though they may be trying to eat your brains they don't actually touch you. And you are not allowed to touch them (and I'm not sure why you would want to). You are wearing an electronic sensor that monitors your health. If a zombie can get close to you it activates your sensor, turning the light from green to yellow and eventually red. If your light is red you are infected and need to race against time to locate the zombie anti-serum to change your sensor back to green.
Can I use my own equipment / paintball gun?
You may use your own paintball (safety certified) mask if you want and you are encouraged to dress up for the part, but you CAN NOT use your own paintball marker or paint balls. Our equipment is a different caliber (50 cal.) than traditional paintball guns and fires at a specific velocity (180-200 FPS).
What equipment do I get with my 'basic package'?
You will receive a special 50 caliber paintball marker with a tactical flashlight attached, a paintball certified face mask, electronic sensor, a full air tank for your marker and 100 rounds of special zombie killing ammunition.
Can I buy more ammo?
Of course. If you feel you just can't shoot enough zombies with 100 rounds we offer additional ammunition before or during the game (more ammo can be purchased at the half way mark). You can even buy paint balls in bulk and share it between your friends for extra savings.
Is there other equipment I can rent?
Yes. We offer a range of other equipment if you really want to get into the part of a bad ass zombie killer. Camouflage uniforms, tactical vests, a cooler marker (gun) and even sneakers (in case you don't want to get yours dirty).
How long does it take?
You should set aside at least 45 minutes to an hour and a half from arrival to finish. When you arrive you will register, meet your squad leader, gear up and receive a safety talk and mission orders. You will then be on the fields for approx. 30-40 adrenaline filled minutes.
What should I wear?
We recommend long sleeved clothing and long pants since much of the action takes place in the woods. Also comfortable sneakers or running shoes. We do rent sneakers if you don't want to use your own. Remember- you don't get shot at, so no special equipment is required.
Do you offer group rates?
Of course. If you have ten or more players in your party you will only pay $24 plus tax per player. A savings of over $5.00 per person.
Do I have to call ahead and reserve?
No, The mission is a walk-thru style with new groups starting every 25 to 30 minutes.
Is there an age limit?
I'm afraid so. Players must be at least 10 years old to participate and if they are 14 or under they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Children aged 6 and up can use the Zombie Hunt Shooting Gallery.
Are there strobe lights?
Possibly. We use a variety of special lighting to create our eerie atmosphere.
Should I play if I am pregnant?
We recommend that you do not participate if you are pregnant or have any potentially dangerous health conditions. Terrain is uneven with steep stairs.
