A look inside Paintball Arkansas Zombie Hunt

CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) – Out on the outskirts of Conway, contagion has spread, the dead are walking, and the only safe house left in the country has been compromised. Through the emergency exit, you’re left with no choice but to jump on a ride through the woods with nothing but the weapons you’re given and your own fear.

Paintball Arkansas Zombie Hunt has opened for its second year and offers a frightful ride on the Zombie Annihilation Vehicle, 100 rounds of glow-in-the-dark ammo, and a tour through a labyrinth of horrors. The 25 to 30 minute tour is $25 per person and includes all of the above plus sideshow acts by PaulPrater.com.

Thursday was opening night and tours run to Nov. 8 on Thursdays through Saturdays. Gates open at 7 p.m.
