Eureka Springs Zombie Tag Mar 28, 2015 (AR)

Filed Under Events | Leave a Comment

Eureka Springs Zombie Tag
Location: Lake Leatherwood City Park, 1303 County Road 204, Eureka Springs, AR 72632
Date: 2015-03-28
Start Time: 12:00
Visit Website: http://eurekaspringszombietag.com/
Description: Forget the walking dead…watch out for the running dead! The Eureka Springs Zombie Invasion invites humans of all ages to once again be chased by zombies at the Third Annual Zombie Tag at Lake Leatherwood on Saturday, March 28, 2015. This popular outdoor family adventure attracts over 100 “human” players each year, some driving hundreds of miles to participate. This year, players will be organized into “platoons” and be sent on special survival missions throughout the park, showcasing many of Lake Leatherwood’s unique features and extensive trail system. Along the way, watch out for hungry zombies trying to grab your “life tags” – similar to flag football.

Zombie Tag 2015 is a NO CONTACT event, and NO WEAPONS are allowed, so please leave your Nerf guns and marshmallow shooters at home for this event. Instead of weapons, special anti-zombie marshmallows will be provided, and human players can throw them by hand to “stun” their undead attackers. No other physical contact, or contraband ammunition, is allowed. Although injuries from hand-tossed marshmallows are pretty unlikely, it is still recommended that all players wear eye protection (safety glasses or goggles), just in case. Each player that brings two cans of food for the Flint Street Food Bank will also receive an “Extra Life” tag to be used in the game (limit one per person).

Please visit EurekaZombieTag.com for more information. Tickets will be available online starting on February 1, 2015 for $10 per player, and are expected to sell out quickly.
