2016 Minnesota Zombie Paintball Locations!
Zombie paintball is appearing at more and more corn mazes, pumpkin patches and other Fall farm venues in Minnesota. 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. If you know of any I've missed, please tell me about them - Click here to write to me! To see the zombie locations in this area, Just scroll down the page:
