We need your help to exterminate these psychotic zombies. Are you up to the task? Can you help C. Casola Farms get rid of the walking dead? There is only one way to find out....and that is to take up a gun and start shooting. Good luck future zombie exterminator and may the fates be with you!
What is Zombie Paintball? You ride in an army truck with paintball guns mounted along the sides and shoot zombies (not each other) - and because they're zombies, they don't know how to use guns, so they can't shoot back! Great for all ages!

Heart Pounding Immersive Experience
Dark House Halloween Horror
WED - SUN 10/7-10/31
Horror Immersive Experience
THE DARK HOUSE is largely experienced in complete darkness. As you arrive, you are greeted by the ‘Optecs’ team who wire you up and “download” the experience into your mind. You are then thrust into a ghost story where you are one of the main characters. As the story goes, you and 3 of your ‘friends’ set out to disprove that a house the locals have deemed ‘haunted’ truly isn’t by spending the night in it. You fail! You will find your way through this intense and terrifying experience while wearing audio headsets and reaching for the “umbilicals” to help guide you. As you listen, the physical world is manifested in real time as story elements unfold and your imagination runs wild. THE DARK HOUSE is a sensory assault, using all senses except sight.
