Familiar park highlights have been transformed to accommodate zombie thrills like the miniature golf course which is now home to the Zombie KillHouse. Guests can also view a reenactment of a public execution of a zombie by guillotine “which is sure to be a wet and bloody experience,” according to a news release. Additional highlights include interactive exhibits with the living dead and a haunted beer garden for guests 21 and up.

“ZombiEmpire is one of several special events we plan to bring to Splash Kingdom,” said Ryan Sauter, one of the park’s current owners. “We intend to continue to take strides toward our goal of becoming the I.E.’s leading entertainment destination.”

Splash Kingdom’s ZombiEmpire runs from 7 p.m. to midnight on select nights through Oct. 31.

Tickets are $29 for general admission which includes unlimited admission to all mazes and attractions except the Zombie KillHouse. A VIP admission option is $45 per person and includes unlimited access to all mazes and attractions, including the KillHouse, front of the line access and free parking. Students are $20.
