Plans afoot for the first-ever zombie theme park
An entrepreneur in the US has stumbled upon an idea so ingenious that we’re amazed it hasn’t been attempted before – a zombie apocalypse theme park.
Clever clogs Mark Siwak plans to revitalise the city of Detroit with a live-action zombie theme park. Mark, we like your style.
Imagine that you’re living through the zombie apocalypse,” says Mark in his official “Z World Detroit” proposal.
“You and your group are looking for sanctuary in an abandoned urban landscape. You are out of ammo so you are relying on your smarts to survive. As you start to adjust to your new surroundings, your relative calm is broken by a pack of zombies.
“People panic and start to run. Some in your group aren’t fast enough and fall to the zombies. Soon they will also be zombies. Where do you go? … Will you make it through the night?”
The entrepreneur wants the theme park to be housed in one of Detroit’s most dilapidated neighborhoods and has set up a fundraising campaign that will only receive its desired funds from crowd-sourcing once a campaign goal of $145,000 is reached before August 10.
“There are formal proposals to essentially abandon some of Detroit’s neighborhoods. That’s not a solution,” says Siwak. “Collectively we must be more creative than that.
“Let’s start something fun and unique that will revitalize an area while creating some jobs for Detroiters.”
