An entrepreneur is looking to bring Detroit back to life by building a theme park there dedicated to the undead.
Mark Siwak has launched a fund-raising campaign for a 200-acre zombie-themed amusement park, which will be built in a derelict, walled-off sector of the Motor City, and will be designed to look like the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse.
Park goers will be “chased by a growing zombie horde” through the struggling city’s abandoned factories, homes and stores, Siwak writes in his proposal on the crowd funding website Indiegogo.com.
Both the zombies and visitors would wear tear-away patches, as if they were playing a game a flag football.
Humans would turn into zombies once their patches are ripped off and zombies will be eliminated once they are patch-less.
The person who collects the most patches wins the game.
Siwak came up with idea in response to a recent proposal by Mayor Dave Bing that seeks to relocate people from mostly abandoned neighborhoods in Detroit to more densly populated areas in order to conserve the city’s resources.
Siwak, who has set a fundraising goal of $145,000, hopes that the project will “inject some life into a forgotten neighborhood.”
