Visibility/Location: The whole parking lot was dark. There was a sign of where to go, but it was not lit up. We weren't sure if it was even open until we pulled in.

Wait Entertainment: Wait was over 1 and 1/2 hours for September 28th. They did let us know when we showed up that it would be that long but it was pretty ridiculous. They made you wait in an old canvass tent that smelled and was quite warm. Good for cold weather, bad for warmer weather. There was one actor to entertain but all he did was walk around. Very low rating for wait entertainment.

Length of Event: Length was about 20 minutes. Initially they let you shoot some wood figures to practice and then they let you shoot "zombies"?!?! Midway through they stopped for about five minutes to sell more paintballs. But I think one person bought some.

Actor Performance: Actors were terrible. They looked like big padded square blocks. There was no effort, no zombie resemblance. Huge things on their heads. I was extremely disappointed. I have been to numerous zombie paintball shoots before, and the actors looked and acted like zombies. These actors were so overtsuffed, you didnt know what they were. Plus, there was like 1 zombie at each stopping. So 10 people shooting at 1 person standing right in front of you. Very boring!!  
The actor who played the sergeant was very good. He was quite funny and at least made the shoot somewhat enjoyable.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Flow was good. We were on a truck. Only annoying part was the 5 minute stop and the hard sell for purchase of additional paintballs.

Appropriate Ages: teens - adults

Props / Special FX: No special effects.

Costumes / Make-up: Actors were dressed like square blocks and looked nothing like zombies. Terrible!

Summary: Overall.. Very disappointed in this attraction. I have been to a few zombie panitball attractions and this was by far the worst one. The actors were so poor that it was no fun. Many times, the zombies actually look like zombies and attack from all areas. This was simply one zombie walking toward the trailer. Zombie didnt even fall down after he was shot about 100 times. Most events have rules that zombies fall when shot numerous times and you cant shoot them once on the ground. This makes it much more entertaining. I really had high hopes as zombie shooting is soo fun, but this was so bad I felt like I wasted my money. The wait was atrocious.. Why weren't there more trucks going out? The actors were terrible (except for the sergeant) and the whole experience was not fun. I didn't think sitting on a truck shooting zombies could not be fun, however, this made it clear that it could not be fun. If you are looking for a zombie shoot, look elsewhere as this is not the place to get the real experience of zombie hunting.
