Be all that you can be this weekend at the 2013 Zombie Army Games in Crest Hill, Illinois! The all day event will take place at the Statesville Haunted Prison and features a number of special events including a zombie hunt, obstacles course and a severed head toss! There’s even a giant zombie bonfire at the conclusion of the games; what more could you ask for?
Located about an hour outside Chicago, the Zombie Army Games kicks off at 11 a.m. on Saturday, September 7th. Attendees are highly encouraged to dress up as either zombies or survivors, and vendors will be onsite selling an assortment of festive food and drinks!
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 throughout 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 Zombie Kickball. As the games wind down, we will present the awards/prizes to our top competitors and light the Giant Zombie Man Bonfire. After the awards ceremony, we will gather all of our Zombie Hunters and enter the haunted house for a few rounds of “Zombie Hunt”. The night will come to a close at 11:30 P.M.
Hot dogs, funnel cakes and zombies; sounds like the perfect way to spend the day! And if you aren’t exactly the physical type, don’t worry… specially priced Spectator tickets are available for those of you who’d like to just kick back and watch the fun.
