Zombie Army Games 2012

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.
