The zombie’s are coming!

The end is nigh!

Grab your survival kits!

Take arms!

Take ammunition!

Help survivors and find sanctuary!

Does this sound familiar? Surely if you haven’t seen or played a zombie apocalypse survival themed game, TV show or movie, then it’s quite obvious you are living under a rock. But, for those who are fans of this, what if you immerse yourself in an open controlled area, your NERF gun of choice and have a group of friends to be part of a survival tag team against the frenzied undead. Zedtown is back for their second year running at Melbourne Showgrounds. Only this time, bigger and better.

Here’s the lowdown…..

The Nation is in a State of Emergency. The ZTX Virus is rampaging across the nation, infecting city after city. In desperation, the Government – its ranks already decimated by the virus’ arrival in Canberra – have enacted Agenda 12, granting emergency powers to the newly created Ministry for Disease Control (MDC).

Minister August Reyn (THE MINISTER) in a hastily arranged press conference in an undisclosed location. “Under new emergency powers, the Ministry of Disease Control (MDC) has issued an evacuation of all major cities across Australia. All able members of the public must report to Quarantine Zone. Resistance from victims of the ZTX virus is expected, so gear yourself with NERF blasters and prepare for the worst. Due to overwhelmed government resources, there are limited places available in the Quarantine Zones. Apply for your ticket to freedom and await further instruction.

Melbourne Showgrounds are Quarantine Zone 5

“If you are displaying symptoms of the virus, please remain inside your residence and do not attempt to access the Quarantine Zones. Be alert.”

“We are the government and we are here to help you.”
