2016 Iowa Zombie Paintball Locations!
Zombie paintball is appearing at more and more corn mazes, pumpkin patches and other Fall farm venues in Iowa. Following on the popularity of anything having to do with zombies (remember how the Canadian government even had a zombie apocalypse preparedness day?) many Halloween attractions, particularly those on farms, are having a new event called "zombie paintball".
The concept is pretty simple: typically, patrons pay a fee to be given a loaded paintball gun which is mounted on either a haywagon (which drives through the zombie field) or on a ledge (like at a shooting range) and they fire away at zombies (actors dressed to look like zombies, whose clothes and masks protect them from injury).
How to find a zombie paint ball venue?
We are continually updating and adding to our list of zombie paintball locations, farms and corn mazes that offer zombie paintball hayrides, zombie paintball trails, zombie lasertag, and indoor facilities, which is growing every day, right here, alphabetically, by county.

A visitor writes on September 22, 2008: "A wonderful place to visit. They made great improvements after the tornado hit their farm a few years ago and it is very kid friendly with lots of activities for them. We go every year!"
