It's almost September, which means it's practically the spooky season as far as we're concerned. Those with an affinity for the scary and already ready for all things horror won't want to miss out on the nautical zombie apocalypse at the Undead in the Water event this October.
Zombies have consumed the Florida shoreline, and the only way to escape is to evacuate to remote islands free of the hordes of the undead. The American Victory Ship and the zombie hunting Ripper Squad have docked up for one last trip to rescue you and the last remaining survivors.
You'll board the historic WW2 cargo ship with The Ripper Squad as you help search for additional survivors — but some zombie stowaways have made their way onto the ship. Avoid being eaten and infected as you traverse multiple levels of the dark boat while the Ripper Squad eradicates animated hordes of infected zombies.
We hope you're not afraid of the dark — the UnDead in the Water event will push your bravery to the limits, as you try to outrun these zombies in the dark armed only with a blacklight flashlight to slow their chase — you'll want to wear close-toed shoes and something you're comfortable climbing ladders, walking narrow hallways, moving through doorways across high thresholds, and walking on the decks in.
Tickets to the event are only $15/person — or $13 if you're active military with valid ID or proof of service.
This experience is not for the faint of heart — do you think you have what it takes to survive the undead? Your bravery can be put to the test every Friday & Saturday in October, Halloween Night, and Nov. 1 and 2 at the infectiously scary Undead in the Water zombie experience.
If you're looking for more ways to fight the horde, this place near Orlando has over 30 realistic laser tag missions — including a 'zombie infected' one. The guns even recoil and simulate the sounds of battle like a real-life video game!
