Zombie Apocalypse Live
June 6-7, 2015. Tickets on sale now HERE.

Fear City Haunted House presents a tactical, live action, video game like zombie shooting experience, Zombie Apocalypse LIVE! You and your team will use state of the art weapons to clear apocalyptic and infested areas where the undead have invaded. You will need to navigate your way through on coming infectious zombies and make the right choices when encountering survivalists, are they friend or foe? The weapons you will be using are military grade training replicas. Their size, form, and function are similar to real world models. Pull the trigger for a live bang, recoil, and muzzle flash.

The zombies will be wearing cutting – edge head shot targets that will flash to indicate a hit. Beware! Some zombies may need to be hit more than once to be killed. Don’t forget to aim for the head.

Wearing your end of the world clothing and gear is encouraged as is listening closely to your orders; your survival may depend on it. You will be immersed in an apocalyptic nightmare world where survival is your only goal. Reservations are required. This event is expected to sell out.

The Foundation is setting their sights high, with the goal of raising $10,000!  Your donation is gravely needed!  We can only reach this goal with your help!

Did you know that the proportion of students qualifying for the reduced or free lunch program has reached a staggering high of 35% of the district’s 5,000 students?  Over the past six years the District 219 Education Foundationhas raised and distributed in excess of $150,000 for the basic educational tools, scholarships and college entrance-related fees. The Foundation continues to distribute breakfast bars and other food essentials to students in need as state and federal funds evaporate.
