“There’s quite a buzz about it,” said General Manager Steve Stafford, adding that the park did several test runs with its zombie actors last week.
For its new live zombie paintball hunt adventure, guests will board a wagon armed with paintball guns and ride into a remote, hilly and forested part of the campground that’s inhabited by live zombies.
“That’s when it gets scary,” Stafford said, “because the zombies approach the wagon.”
The guests are armed with paintball guns, however, and can shoot at the zombies as well as other Halloween targets in the area.
“It’s scary, but it’s also a safe and fun experience,” Stafford said.
Live zombie paintball hunts are scheduled every weekend this month along with pumpkin hurl competitions, when guests can launch pumpkins into the air using a supersize slingshot. Other Halloween themed activities include a haunted walking trail, campsite decorating and costume contests and trick or treating.
In addition to its special Halloween activities, the North Texas Jellystone Park offers organized family activities with Yogi Bear, which help families create unique memories. Activities include arts and crafts, scavenger hunts, face painting as well as evening campfires and tuck-ins with the bears.
The North Texas Jellystone also features numerous onsite attractions, including a catch and release lake stocked with large mouth bass, crappie, channel catfish and hybrid bluegill; a 10,000 square foot maze; a laser tag field; and an air zone with inflatable slides and jumpers designed for children ages 6 to 14 as well as children under 5.
