There's no shortage of doomsday theories of how the world will end; it could be a natural disaster, a pandemic, or even the Rapture, but only if Debbie Harry's still trying to rap in 2012. Presenting the most likely scenario, zombies, and letting you fight back: Atlanta Zombie Apocalypse. Awesomely ramping up the haunted house experience, AZA's an interactive undead-hunting/escaping tour inside a 100k-sqft abandoned truck stop on 35 acres, produced by Plaza Theater owner Jonathan Rej and a team of filmmakers/special effects pros (who worked on Rob Zombie's Halloween), and filled with "gunfire, explosions, dead bodies, and gore", which actually sounds more like hunting with Cheney. You'll begin at "Apocalypse", where your group'll move through a set that includes ravaged restaurants, offices, and even a two-story motel, led by M-16-/357 Magnum-armed Sergeant John McKinsey (aka "Mack"), who'll fend off the slow-moving terrors (who're jumping out at you, crawling, eating fake brains...) with help from friends, and is said to have "the swagger of Clint Eastwood", except he's bald, so things may get dirty, but not hairy. Survive that, and you'll move on to the Zombie Shoot course, where you'll get a paintball gun loaded with 20 pellets to fire at the 'bies as they duck behind buildings & stagger around the ruins; unlike most paintball excursions, they actually encourage you to aim for the heads of the live undead, so hopefully Keith Richards is wearing his goggles. You can purchase tickets for each activity separately, or save $5 by nabbing combo tix. The whole thing lasts about 25 minutes, which'll seem to go by much quicker than eight minutes of life-ending lyrics like "And you try to run but he's got a gun/He shoots you dead and he eats your head".
