Nakheel Malls is teaming up with Sharjah Golf & Shooting Club to bring a brand new concept to Deira Islands. Zombie Apocalypse Park (ZAP) will be a giant entertainment zone themed around the living dead.

ZAP will be the first attraction of its kind to open in the UAE when it opens in mid-2020, and will be based in The Night Market at Deira Islands. The 65,000 square foot space will feature 12 attractions including a haunted house, axe throwing, archery, haunted corn maze, trampolines, target shooting, zombie apocalypse attack and more.

Not only will you be able to explore the land of a zombie apocalypse in a glow in the dark space, you’ll also enjoy live acts, games, battles and events. Games include paint balling, escape rooms, air soft battle games and laser tag.

The park will be part of Nakheel’s future development, The Night Market at Deira Islands, which when it opens will be the world’s largest night market, with over 5,000 waterfront shops, restaurants, cafes and attractions.

Omar Khoory, Managing Director of Nakheel Malls, said: “We are committed to creating unique, unforgettable experiences, attractions and facilities at our existing and upcoming retail developments. The Zombie Apocalypse Park will be a huge draw at The Night Market, attracting tourists, businesses and schools for team-building events and families and individuals for a new kind of entertainment.”

So far, there’s no clear date on when ZAP will open to the public but we can expect to see the park open its doors in mid-2020. The entertainment destination will also have its own car park, a zombie-themed cafe, party room for private events and ZAP activities shop.
