I have gone here several times. This place is sooo much fun. You feel like you are in a movie as you go through shooting zombies. The actors are verrry good. The zombies are equipped with a sensor that reads your gun which is like lazer tag. When there sensor vibrates they 'die' for three to five seconds. within the facility there are stations where you can take a temporary break but not for too long. From the beginning you forget about the real world and it is sooo much fun. They have health warning posted for those who are strobe light sensitive or pregnant but I must warn you that they actors in the beginning curse at you like you are in the military so be aware if you are bringing younger kids. It is all apart of the show. You won't be disappointed if you are a fan of zombies. Awesome time!!!!!

Scary, heart racing, fast paced, believable.

The actors NEVER broke character. From the minute you entered the front desk for sign up, till you left. Very good concept. Lots of fun.

This was truly a poor experience with this vendor. After calling the business at 8:00pm, I was told by an employee that there was only a thirty minute wait. We arrived at 9:00pm, and was told by the manager 'Joe', to come back in an hour. He stated large groups arrived with reservations and had the right to go through first. I understood that we were just walk-on's and had no reservations, so we went for pizza and returned in a hour. Once we arrived there was still many people on line, and there didn't seem to be any organization in the reservation process. We keep getting pushed back and reservations were put in front of us. We waited in line for another hour and fifteen minutes in very cold and uncomfortable conditions. I would not recommend this buisness, since the groupon holders are treated very poorly and were forced to wait over 2 hours for a fifteen minute experience. What makes even less sense was the group that went through the obstacle before us, came out AFTER us, which means at some point they cut our experience short. This seems very unfair considering the groupon states the full course is included in the price. On a side note, at approximately 1015pm, while still waiting on line, they closed the bathrooms, which are shared by another facility in the building.

On a side note, this experience is not for children under the age of 16. Not only was there vulgar language, there were many inappropriate sexual comments made by the staff in an attempt to be funny.

If you like to be scared, chased or just a friendly survival compitation with friend and lots of screaming then this is the place for you. staff is a lil pushy but if works with the enviroment, there is cussing so if you are bringing children along be aware of this, at the time of our visit there was a make up artist there who would do your make up for $$. all and all it was fun for us and the kids, make sure to check your scores before giving in your tags

If you are a fan of the Walking Dead and you want to feel what it is like to have to survive, then go down to NYZ and try it out. I don't want to give away anything about the experience but I will tell you that it blew away my expectations being a local attraction and not in the heart of Disney or Universal (but it may as well be). It is so professionally put together and the workers are all top notch.
