And that's not all: 13th Floor will also have a Yeti; a snow cave (hopefully all ice planet Hoth-tastic); a "Temple of Doom" with a rock cave, fossils and dinosaurs, improved and extended sewer scene, a laser swamp, Mayan tombs, shifting hallways, spinning tunnels....and zombies.The new Undead attraction (included in the ticket price with 13th Floor) is in an old built-to-scale farmhouse, where guests will get to "fend for their lives" all Shaun of the Dead-ish as zombies try to get in.
The Asylum has been scaring the sh*t out of Denverites since 2002 with its circa 1800s-tastic insane-asylum vibe: electroconvulsive shock therapy, straitjackets, branding patients' heads with a red hot iron and all that good stuff. This year, haunted house-goers get a redesigned layout with new rooms, new facades, animatronics and forty actors whose sole purpose is to make sure you wet yourself.
The Asylum's Zombieland debuted in 2011, and it's back: an "abandoned city where all humans have gone and only zombies remain."
And for all the gift-shop addicts, there will be new souvenirs: zombie dolls, zombie attack kits -- not sure if real axes are included -- and zombie tees.
