PHOENIX — Zedtown, an interactive, video game meets real-life zombie apocalypse style cosplay event, will be coming to Chandler on April 21 and 22.

Zedtown was an interactive event where participants can live out their own zombie apocalypse while hunting zombies, escaping zombies and tracking achievements to earn points for their team.

It was billed as color run meets Call of Duty.

The objective of the event was to unlock the most achievements with your team by blasting away zombie actors while trying to avoid becoming a zombie yourself.

Armed with only a foam blaster, participants must work fast and communicate with one another to complete the objectives given to them by a call-in radio station.

Zedtown was a traveling event with three scheduled appearances across the country in Orange County, California, Austin, Texas and Chandler.

Other unconfirmed dates across the United States included locations from New York City to San Francisco.

Starting in Australia, Zedtown began in 2012 and has since partnered with Hasbro NERF to expand the operation.

Technology is an important part of the game as players are asked to download the Zedtown app to track movement and photograph checkpoints to earn points and receive radio transmissions.

If you were ever interested in testing your survival skills in the event of a zombie apocalypse, now might be your chance. Tickets for the event can be found on the website.

We want to hear from you.
