An Entrepreneur Wants To Build A Zombie Theme Park In The Abandoned Streets Of Detroit

The abandoned car factories on streets of Detroit can seem so creepy that they’re reminiscent of the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse.

And that’s exactly what Mark Siwak, who wants to build a zombie-themed amusement park on the abandoned streets of Detroit, is counting on, according to the New York Daily News.

The park, called Z World Detroit, would capitalise on the abandoned neighborhoods of the city (and the recent zombie craze) while employing city residents

Under Siwak’s proposal, Z World Detroit would be a structured game where humans are chased by “zombies” around a 200-acre course. Both the humans and the zombies would wear patches, like in flag football. When a human loses all of his patches, he would turn into a zombie. When zombie loses all his patches, he would die.

The human with the most zombie patches would win the game.

Siwak came up with the idea for “infecting some life into the forgotten neighbourhood” after Detroit’s mayor announced plans to relocate residents in abandoned neighborhoods to conserve the city’s resources, according to the Daily News.

Siwak has a goal of raising $145,000 for the park. So far he’s at $6,278 with 33 days to go. Siwak will return the donations if he does not meet his goal.
