Zombie Hunting in Thorpe Park (& Elsewhere)

Stories From Around The World of Zombie Laser Tag

Zombie Hunting at Thorpe Park  

A hoard of zombies invaded the woodland on the outskirts of Thorpe Park Resort.

Brave Zombie Hunters needed help to hunt those pesky Zombies down and eradicate them before an epidemic swept through Surrey, United Kingdom.

It was time for Zombie Hunters to take on this family-friendly interactive laser blaster experience to defeat the zombies and regain control of THORPE PARK Resort. 

Each Zombie Hunter was issued a laser tag, Blaster. The blaster model was actually the Cobra and is from Battlefield Sports.

Zombie Hunters then proceeded to a mission briefing in the old Canada Creek Railway line.

 Here a friendly face prepared each team on the shooting range for battle.

Equipped with a 'laser tag' Cobra gun the Zombie Hunters headed onto a series of six thrilling scenes, each with their own character and scare.

According to Thrill Nation, "The gameplay works well, find the targets on the zombies and shoot! They have to be shot a certain number of times before they die and you can proceed! (Tip: research the characters on the posters outside the attraction before entering.)

Overall, Zombie Hunt provided a really fun & interactive experience that is suitable for everyone (who can handle a scare or two of course)!"

Fear on the Farm presents the Zombie Prom

Original reporting in the Putnam Review by Clint Thomas

While some may remember their own high school prom as a horror story, Battlefield Operator Steve Jordan has taken this to an entirely new level with his Zombie Prom.

Fear on the Farm were the producers of the thrilling Zombie Prom.

Party-goers were encouraged to dress as zombies for the ghoulish gala; a zombie king and queen were crowned during the evening.

Jordan’s team served zombie cupcakes and zombie punch as spooky refreshments.

Music was spun by Sinister Sound DJs.

 Photographer Mike Winland was on-site to capture the scary scenes. There were also great prizes and giveaways “ghoul-ore.”

Zombie Laser Tag Equipment from Battlefield Sports

Fear on the Farm is an offshoot of Lee’s Studio Productions, which long-time dance instructor Lee Jordan opened in Winfield.

“We decided to add laser tag to Lee’s Studio Productions,” said Jordan, “and what better way to kick off this than the day after Zombie Prom?

“It’s really neat. We’ve been working with a group out of California called Battlefield Sports. They are literally top-of-the-line when it comes to laser tag guns. There are really good laser tag guns and really bad laser tag guns. I wanted them to be the best.

“Zombie Laser Tag is so interactive, very theatrical. We put on so many shows and productions — I like to do things like that. It’s very inactive and touches on all the senses,” he said.

A Prom With A Spooky Twist

“The Zombie Prom is actually an event that people put on almost like a dance event,” Jordan explained last week. “It’s a little bit different, but it’s almost the same as the Mom Prom they do in Charleston in every year — but with zombies.”

Jordan said Zombie Proms have been held in different areas throughout the state and nation, but, to his knowledge, not in Putnam County. “I’ve been to a couple. It’s a great event to bring people together in West Virginia.”

The Winfield resident said attendees are welcome to go “full zombie” in attire or only as “undead” as they desire in their fashions.
“It’s like dressing for the prom, but however severe you want — from a bite on the head or neck or done head to toe,” Jordan said.

“We’re going to have a DJ,” he said, “and we’ll be playing some different games, with lots of zombie-themed prizes. We’re going to bring in judges to pick the best-looking zombies as king and queen.”

The Zombie Prom was open to ages 14 and older.

“It’s going to be a really big party. We wanted it to be like high school/college for adults. We didn’t want it for the little ones, but, of course, the little ones don’t go to prom, anyway.

“It’ll be in a family, safe atmosphere, with plenty of free parking,” Jordan said.

“If this goes well, I hope to have other themed parties. Around Halloween, we’d like to host a Vampires Ball. And maybe do a Rocky Horror Picture Show party, where people can dress up like the characters. This the kind of stuff West Virginia needs and our facility is set up wonderfully for having these,” he said.

Fear on the Farm will enable gamers to zap zombies in Laser Tag challenges.  (Laser Tag sessions without zombies can also be booked on request.)

Zombie Resistance

Another thrilling zombie laser tag attraction was from Pennsylvania. 

The Game: Zombie Resistance is a 4-player, linear story-driven adventure through the ruins of an old drive-in theater.

According to battlefield operator, Kevin Walter from Base Tactics: "There is nothing like this in the state. All of the equipment used in the game is infrared-based with no projectiles. This isn't your typical "get-on-a-paintball-truck-and-shoot-zombies-in-protective-gear" kind of thing. Squads have to work together to keep zombie damage down to a minimum, WHILE solving puzzles and making decisions."

"Oh, and one last note: it is possible to lose in the end."

Base Tactics team have also upgraded part of their live gaming arsenal to the latest SATR3 technology which enabled even more thrilling zombie games.

So gamers can select from three roles:

Civilian Defense Force (15 to 20-minute experience)
Raven Mercenaries (Hard Mode - no extra respawns - choose this at your own risk (2 to 20-minute experience)
Zombies! (60 to 120-minute experience) experience the horde first-hand.

Stun Them, Shock Them With A Zombie Laser Tag Experience

One of the core elements of a haunt is "startle and scare".

The last thing you want to be is predictable.

Frights can be achieved by a prop, animatronics or actors popping out unexpectedly. But the most random and most unpredictable is a live actor.

Bait & Switch Works Well

Yes, bait and switch works well. If patrons are focused on something on the left, then the startle appears from a camouflaged point on the right. The more startle, the better.

For real adrenaline-pump patrons need a series of scares that cascade into a crescendo.

The first fright might be to give the participants a minor heart attack, but just as they catch their breath, another scarier action appears. Stunning them. Shocking them.

The top haunts nowadays have special effects, makeup and prosthetics just like in the movies.

Haunt customers today are seeking a new level of thrill. Haunted house designers are always considering new ways to scare their customers. Customers want to be a part of an interactive experience.
