Dubai real estate developer Nakheel’s retail arm, Nakheel Malls, has teamed up with Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club to launch a zombie-themed entertainment zone called Zombie Apocalypse Park – the first of its kind in the UAE – within The Night Market at Deira Islands, and upon completion in mid-2020, the park will feature a line-up of 12 live acts, games, battles, and events, including a virtual reality 9D cinema. 

The 6,038m2 fantasy land will also have its own car park, a zombie-themed cafe, a party room for private events, and a merchandise shop.

The Night Market at Nakheel's Deira Islands will be the world’s largest night market when it opens, featuring 5,000 waterfront shops, restaurants, cafes, and attractions, in addition to 3,000 parking spaces. 

Nakheel confirmed that construction on The Night Market at Deira Islands was complete, with landscaping, water features, and other finishing touches currently in progress.

Activities planned for Zombie Apocalypse Park include paintball and escape games, a haunted house experience, an axe throw, archery, a haunted corn maze, airsoft battle games, laser tag, trampolines, target shooting, a zombie apocalypse attack game, and zombie runs.

The collaboration was confirmed at a signing ceremony led by Nakheel's chief executive officer, Sanjay Manchanda, and Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club's general manager, Joseph Estephan, Dubai Media Office reported.

Commenting on the project, Nakheel Malls' general manager, Omar Khoory, said: “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.”
