Walking Dead fans, be you zombie or survivor we invite you to come out for a fun evening of zombie slaying in Riverside Park. Teams of zombies (with headbands) and teams of hunters (with guns) will face off as they navigate through the realistic game scenario. Players can register as a free agent and be placed on a team or friends and family can register as a team of six. Equipment may be heavy for small children. Call Megan at (434) 455- 5891 for questions. Register by 10/24.
Nightfall is approaching, your friend has sustained a bad laceration to the leg that needs medical attention, dehydration and hunger are starting to set in, and you need to ﬁnd a safe place to rest through the night. Each team of survivors will be tasked with a timed scavenger hunt to find a ﬁrst aid kit, a water bottle, and food, all while trying to take control of the top of the playground structure as a bunker to spend the night. But, don’t forget that they have to avoid the zombies! Can you make it out alive?!
*At 7:45 we will announce the winners of the costume contest. If you wish to enter the costume contest please check in no later than 7:30pm.
Summary: The game is played like a big round of capture the flag with zombies! Each zombie hunter team will have a home base on opposite sides of the playing field. The goal is to retrieve the designated objects
(which will glow) for survival and make it back safely to your team’s bunker. Every team is playing for themselves. Strategy is encouraged.
Teams will be broken up between youth/ family league and adult league pending on age and request. If you register as a free agent you will be placed on either an adult or youth/family team age pending. To register as a team of six, the team captain will register and pay online in addition to filling out a team roster located here.
While you are awaiting your turn, you can roast smores, drink cider, take funny team photos or get a flesh wound tattoo.
The laser tag equipment is not waterproof. In the catastrophic event that it does rain you, or the team captain will be notified of relocation or a “rain date.” Expect to receive a phone call from Parks & Rec. staff. You can also call the cancellation line at (434) 455-5860 ext. 5893.
