The military may have thrown down its arms in the battle against the zombie threat, but the curators of Fenton's Creepyworld Screampark are not giving up the ghost without a fight. Effective immediately, all able-bodied men and women are requested to join in the resistance by boarding the Zombie City Paintball Hayride
. Sharpshooters will be issued safety goggles and a paintball gun capable of unloading round after round of colorful carnage upon a zombie horde that will menace the entire route. The Zombie City Paintball Hayride is just one of nine attractions featured at Creepyworld Screampark (1400 South Old Highway 141, Fenton; www.scarefest.com
), which includes the Drive Inn 666, Hornbuckle's Pig Farm, a greatly expanded Silo-X and the Famous Faces Pumpkin Display, where prizes are awarded to guests who correctly identify the dismembered heads adorning the carved pumpkins. Creepyworld Screampark is open 7 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Friday and Saturday, and 7:30 to 10 p.m. Sunday (October 12 through 21), with extended Halloween hours starting Monday, October 22. Admission to all Creepyworld attractions is just $20 to $25.
Fridays-Sundays; Oct. 22-Nov. 3. Starts: Oct. 5. Continues through Oct. 21, 2012
