Stiff competition from the longest running haunted theme park in SoCal. Knott's brings out all the stops this year with the only theme park where you can shoot down the dead. Special Ops: Infected has you sporting a gun to kill zombies. Not a pellet gun, but an interactive gun with LCD screens that record your kills and accuracy. The guns is so smart it knows if you've shot a zombie in the head and will lower your score if a zombie comes within a 10-foot radius.
Special Ops: Infected will not be able to accommodate even half of the people coming to the park per night so be prepared to get in line early. It lasts around fifteen minutes.
In your 12 person squadron you'll be given different missions on your zombie fight. You'll meet an unruly militia and a scientist that knows what caused the outbreak. Zombies can hide in buildings, under bridges and a lot of terrain, you'll have acres to find them... or they find you.
None of the other major theme parks are doing anything close to this. There is competition with Haunted Hollywood Sports, but they aren't a theme park, just a hunting ground to fight zombies.
