Halloween is right around the corner and not much is more frightful than zombies, especially in Atlanta, the home to The Walking Dead.
Well, if you’re looking for some thrills, there are a few options that can be a lot of fun for your older fright fans.
First, how about testing your skills chasing down zombies? Fun, right? Well, a little frightful, too.
Get your friends together and head to the SAS Black Ops Indoor Arena in Marietta on Saturday nights through Halloween. It’s a laser tag facility and the Zombie Apocalypse happens from 7-11pm each Saturday. The fog will roll in and you’ll fight for survival against the zombie horde—realizing some of your friends may now be among them.
You just need to book a session, grab your gear (a state-of-the-art laser tag pro battle rifle), sit in on a briefing, and head to the indoor arena to get the Zombies! But here’s the deal: if the zombies get you first, you become ‘one of them’.
There are survival missions you face that shift up every 15 minutes.
You can reserve a space by calling 678-659-9319 or clicking this link.
It’s recommended participants be at least 5 years old (and I say older if they scare easily, like me).
If that doesn’t give you your fill of zombies, don’t forget about the Walker Stalker Con happening Halloween Weekend. This is a must-attend if you are a fan of The Walking Dead (TWD).
It’s a zombie and horror themed convention packed with events, panels and other fan experiences.
There are 10 of these events held around the world, but Atlanta is its home base and hosts the big names in TWD world…just look at this rundown of people who will be there:
