A 65,000sq ft (19,812sq m) Zombie Apocalypse Park is set to open in 2020 at The Night Market in Deira Islands, Dubai, following a signing ceremony between developers Nakheel, and the Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club.

The zombie-themed entertainment zone will feature a variety of live acts, events, games and battles. Activities will include paintball, escape games, VR 9D cinema, a haunted house and maze, axe throwing, archery, laser tag, trampolines, target shooting, zombie apocalypse attack and zombie runs. Also included in the theme park experience will be a zombie-themed café, a party room for private events and a gift shop.

The Night Market itself is currently still under development, having been constructed but still requiring landscaping, water features and other finishing touches. When completed, the market will stretch for almost 2km along the waterfront, with 5,300 shops, restaurants and cafés, making it the world's largest night market.

Omar Khoory, managing director of Nakheel Malls, commented: "The Zombie Apocalypse Park will be a huge draw at The Night Market, attracting tourists, businesses and schools for team-building events, and families and individuals for a new kind of entertainment."
