Zombie Theme Park Proposed For Detroit

Z Detroit

You can help bring a real zombie apocalypse to Detroit, Michgan. The creation of Z World Detroit is an idea that may just be an alternate solution to essentially having to abandon some of Detroit’s neighborhoods. You can help out by donating to the cause at Indiegogo.

The Z World Detroit initiative is a radical rethinking of urban redevelopment and Detroit’s well-documented blight and de-population. It turns perceived liabilities into assets that will bring a renewed vitality to a struggling neighborhood. When done right, Z World Detroit would be transformative for part of the city, it would create jobs for Detroiters and become a legitimate destination.

While zombies are great, the real neat thing about this project is the potential to inject some life into a forgotten neighborhood – with the opportunity to work with neighborhood groups and organization. In short, Z World Detroit would become part of the neighborhood, the center of the neighborhood, rather than something sitting outside the neighborhood. A big inspiration for this effort is Detroit’s Heidelberg Project, where an artist transformed an east-side street into a massive art installation. This has has a profound effect on that neighborhood and made it a destination.

If they can reach their $145,000 goal, we will all hopefully have a place to fight and run from brain thirsty zombie hordes.
