Have you heard of the plans to turn parts of Detroit into a Zombie theme park?
The upside is that the developers merely need to chain off a quarter of the city and charge admission.
Derelict areas of Detroit face being taken over by hordes of ‘flesh and brain-eating zombies’ if an ambitious business plan takes off.
Entrepreneur Mark Siwak wants to create live-action terror theme park ‘Z World’ on Motor City’s run-down and abandoned streets.
Customers would pay to be chased by professional actors and try to seek shelter in ghostly homes, factories and businesses.
Siwak said it would breathe fresh life into the rundown city, giving jobs to hundreds, if not thousands, of people.
But critics say it is an ‘exploitative and insensitive ploy’ to profit from Detroit’s problems.
Curbed Detroit blogger Sarah Cox said the plan ‘sounds a lot like all that fun we had during the 1960s race riots’.
She added: ‘It’s nice to know Z Land is finally going to capitalise on our love of adrenaline rushes and nostalgia.
Apparently Atlanta has something called the Zombie Apocalypse. I can’t think of better PT than being chased by a horde of blood-thirsty zombies.
