What is Zombie Train?
You are enlisting to join Major Tom and his ragtag squad of soldiers trying to keep the infected zombies from invading St.John's and surrounding areas. You are traveling in modified and reinforced buses with paintball guns mounted on turrets. Each one of you has your own gun. You shoot glow in the dark balls full of zombie killing acid at the attacking hoards of zombies.
When does it start?
The Zombies are the most hungry after dark however the train starts running 30 minutes after sunset. The glow in the dark acid is best experienced when it is completely dark. Below is a chart of when the sun sets, when we will be starting and when it is estimated to be dark. Please note if you wish to want to wait for until darkness you can let others go ahead of you.

Can I get Warm?
Yes! We have a large room where you can warm up and stay out of the cold or rain while you wait for your turn. As well part of the train has heat. Zombies like their meat warm so bear this in mind when boarding the train.
What else can I do?
We have a Glow in the Dark Shooting Range on-site, or if you want you can Suit up and be a zombie, you don’t even pay to be a zombie!
What's special about balls?
We use a special Glow in the dark ammo(They are filled full of phosphorescent "acid"), that makes it far more visible at night, and really shows where you hit the zombies. The trains have black UV lights mounted on them to really bring out the glowing acid. It even looks like lasers!
Are the zombies real people?
Absolutely, The Zombies attacking the train are freshly deceased people risen from the dead, to launch their attack.
