Syracuse Zombie Scavenger Hunt

Zombie Scavengers leads you into downtown Syracuse to collect supplies to survive during this interactive app-led scavenger hunt style game.
Where:Syracuse, New York
Price for:Up To 10 Participants
Explore Syracuse with Zombie Scavengers!

The whole world is in anarchy. You are part of a small colony of survivors, just outside of the city, and Zombies outnumber the living 10 to 1.

Using the Zombie Scavengers app and their friendly remote host, you'll set out on a quest to survive the zombie apocalypse by finding items needed to survive.

YOUR MISSION: With your team of up to 10 people, you need to make your way downtown to Perseverance Park, where you'll use your smartphone to scavenge downtown NYC for much needed supplies, taking pictures of the survival items from a list provided to you on the app. The more you find and take pictures of, the more points you’ll earn and increase your chances of survival.

You only have 60 minutes. If you get lackadaisical, rival colonies will take what you worked hard to collect. Answer trivia questions and perform some zombie style challenges to be more rewarded points if successful.

If you are playing in a larger group, you can divide into teams. Play against each other to see who finds all the survival items first! You can put the scavenger hunt app on as many phones as you'd like.

This game is family friendly.

No actual zombies are involved in the scavenger hunt!
