Zombie have invaded and it’s your job to defend our city!
Wichita Zombie Shoot, allows guests to board buses, called zombuses, and ride through a series of zombie-filled scenes. The buses feature mounted paintball guns, and it is the responsibility of each passenger to help defend the bus from the attacking zombies.
The Halloween-themed event will support the Wichita Scottish Rite Center, donating all proceeds to the Scottish Rite Charitable Trust, who works closely with Wichita State University’s RiteCare Center.
Opening Sept. 30, Project manager Brendan Gelinas says the event saw a successful opening weekend.
“We had several buses going through each night,” Gelinas said. “People kept saying that it’s the best Halloween event that they’ve ever been to.”
According to Gelinas, three project managers were heavily involved in planning the event, which has been in the works for about two months.
“It’s a passive experience,” Gelinas said, when comparing the Wichita Zombie Shoot to similar events like haunted houses. “In other places, you have people jumping out at you and saying ‘boo!’ You’re not going to get that here.”
The zombies are unarmed, so guests can enjoy playing paintball without getting shot or dirty.
Tickets are priced at $25 per person for a ride on the Zombus and 100 paintballs. Additional paintballs are available for an added cost. On site ticket sales will open at 6:15 p.m and close at 10:30 p.m. each night, and tickets are always available online.
Children under 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
