Gear up with your own Battle Rifle Pro, and you’re ready to face the apocalypse. Use your ammo wisely, as there’s no unlimited supply, and you’ll need to find a reload point if you run out of ammo.

A drill sergeant steps out from the shadows:

“Alright listen up! The containment hatch that houses a deadly virus has just leaked. Whatever you’re about to see is extremely dangerous. Your mission is to go in there, shut down the containment hatch and bring an end to the deadly virus.”

After a thrilling slew of sprints and mini obstacle courses, you’ll meet another soldier.

“Don’t shoot! I’m not infected – I’m the only surviving member of my team. I need your help to find the transmission code.

There’s not much time – your team will need to split up and search for the code.

“Open up the boxes if you have to, I’ll cover you!”

The most exhilarating moments of ZLT come in bursts during the race to the finish. Zombies jump from very well-hidden spots. Shoot deftly, and don’t forget your mission. Use the code at the final gate to end the outbreak.

Zombie Laser Tag 2018 review

Zombie Laser Tag is a must-do attraction for thrill seekers and fans who need exciting zombie encounters to round off their Horror Nights experience. With teething issues from last year’s edition fixed, the ‘VIP zone’ had no delays affecting gameplay.

On the overall, it’s a short but thrilling experience. While Jurassic Park offers a game arena double the size of last year’s, the whole game wasn’t twice as long. With the new drill sergeant character, the pace of the game was kept very brisk, and there are ample wide spaces to rush through safely. There were minimal maze-like areas, which meant that some spaces could potentially be revisited, or there could even be an open arena space for a more traditional ‘laser tag’ game.

Perhaps in future editions the park may consider – apart from using an even larger space (somehow) – getting equipment that offers tactile feedback for the zombie scare actors, so that their performance could be more believable when they are ‘shot’ by the laser rifles. There is clearly some delay because they could only react after seeing the lights on their headbands change, and they sometimes miss it. The finale also needs a stronger kick, because it felt like “Well done pressing the right button. Please return your rifles and exit to your right.” At least you can take a photo with a zombie at the exit – don’t forget this exclusive photo op!

    Hi dejiki, I really want to get into the killuminati secret room when I visit for hhn. Any tips? And do you think they’ll purposely not choose those people who are super super scared (because I am). If I keep repeatedly going for that haunted house, will it increase the chances of me getting picked? And how do you even know you are picked.

      I think I’ve already given the most important tip in my survival guide article. It is really up to chance and crowd levels. For higher chances, visit during quiet times (near park closing) when there are a lot less people in haunted house.

    I have done both the ZLT 2017 and ZLT 2018. As what you have mentioned, it’s twice the size but a quarter of the scare and excitement (in comparison). Less maze like and less scare actors and the vast expanse doesn’t create the eerie feel of how the zombies maybe lurching behind any walls.

    All in all out of a scale of 5 stars.
    2017
    Storyline – 6 stars,
    scare – 10 stars,
    set-up – 7 stars,
    scare actors (numbers) – 8 stars

    2018
    Storyline – 3 stars,
    scare – 1 stars,
    set-up – 4 stars,
    scare actors (numbers) – 2 stars
