A Detroit local is hoping to bring the dead back to life…in more than one way. If Marc Siwak’s plan comes into fruition, zombies will rise in the dead streets of Detroit as part of a major new theme park attraction.
Siwak wants to create live-action terror theme park Z World on Motor City’s run-down and abandoned streets. Customers would pay to be chased by professional actors and try to seek shelter in ghostly homes, factories and businesses, says the Daily Mail.
Siwak said it would breathe fresh life into the rundown city, giving jobs to hundreds, if not thousands, of people. But critics say it is an ‘exploitative and insensitive ploy’ to profit from Detroit’s problems.
Siwak, who has raised $2,200 of the $140,000 needed through fundraising website IndieGoGo, explains, “While zombies are great, the real neat thing about this project is the potential to inject some life into a forgotten neighbourhood – with the opportunity to work with neighbourhood groups and organisation.”
