GULLIVER’S TRICK & TREAT WEEK

Gulliver’s Land, October 22-30

Take aim at the ghostly zombies roaming the official NERF Zone at Gulliver’s Land. The NERF Zone has been given a Halloween makeover for Gulliver’s Trick & Treat Week.

Special Zombie NERF sessions test out youngsters’ sharp shooting skills in the Halloween-themed target range, with pumpkins galore. Once ready for battle, Halloween daredevils can turn their Zombie NERF blasters on the zombies who’ve taken up residence in the combat zone. Don’t worry, they’re friendlier than they look!
