Fellow Illinois fans are going to have a treat with a full on day of zombie activities. Not only is is just for fun but there are a ton of prizes you can be awarded depending on your skills in the various challenges!
The Zombie Army Games is a day of “Zombie Themed” individual physical challenges and team based games. All registered participants will have an opportunity to compete against other zombies and survivors through out the day in the individual challenges: Zombie Obstacle Course, Hatchet toss, Crossbow Challenge, and Severed Head Toss. Zombies who come in a group or form one at the event can also register for the team based games (zombie hunt , zombie ball, and possibly kickball). As the games wind down, we will be serving a late BBQ lunch to our guest and present the awards and prizes to our top competitors. After the awards ceremony, we will kick off the evening events with a Giant Zombie Man Bonfire and “Zombie Hunt”. The night will come to a close 11:30 unless you register to be one of our overnight guests, “The Survivors”. If you choose to stay the night, you will not only be camping in the shadow of Statesville Haunted Prison, but you will also be invited on a scavenger hunt throughout the haunt. However, if you don’t want to face the menacing late night scavenger hunt, you are free to enjoy the campfire and the company of zombies. All campers must break camp and leave by 11 am the following day.
Although we will have refreshments throughout the day and one meal served in the late afternoon, we do encourage our guest to bring their own snacks and drinks to the games. (coolers are allowed, but underage drinking is strictly prohibited).
It is highly encouraged to dress as a zombie or a survivor for the day, there will be a makeup booth that can assist you for an additional fee.
All registered competitors will be willingly participating in physical activities that can lead to injury. All participants will sign an agreement which will free the event and producers from any responsibility or liability of any and all injuries the competitor might sustain during The Zombie Army Games.
Individual Skills Challenge
Zombie Obstacle Course
A race through 12 zombie themed obstacles and a horde of zombies awaiting each runner in the cornfield. Each runner will be judged on time and obstacles completed.
You are out of ammo and now it is time to check your hatchet throwing skills. Each player gets 3 hatchets to throw at a target.
Severed Head Toss
Its like “Bozo Buckets” with severed heads!
When the sound of a gun will alert the zombies, you better be good with a crossbow! Each player gets 3 shots at a target.
Team Based Games
A Team of 4 will attempt to kick the severed head into the opponent’s goal. Its one part rugby, one part soccer, and slash of kick ass.
It’s dodge ball with severed heads!
No zombie theme, its just awesome. Seriously, who doesn’t like kick ball?
A team of 5 will arm themselves with our state of the art military laser tag guns (courtesy of Chicagoland Laser Tag) and compete against an opposing team for zombie kills. There will be 5 zombies on the course wearing head sensors that will be the official scorekeeper. (This event is only for those who purchased the Expanded or Overnight Packages)
A team of 5 will enter Statesville Haunted Prison with 6 clues, 6 goals, a flashlight and 40 minutes to complete their objective. (only for those who purchased the camping Surviver Package)
Traditional rock climbing wall.
An inflatable obstacle course and slide.
Giant Zombie Man Bonfire
A 20’ wooden zombie will be ignited at the conclusion of the games and we will enjoy the remaining of the night in the company of fellow zombies and survivors.
We will provide one BBQ meal in the late afternoon. All vegetarians must send an email to [email protected] to notify us of your food needs.
You will be provided with a 20’x20’ area to set up your tent. There will be a common area with a bonfire and each tent must be registered with the names of each person sleeping in the tent. 11:00 am check out. (This is only for those who purchased the Overnight Package)
