Zombies! The Asylum and 13th Floor dare you to nut up or shut up (Denver, CO)
Zombies have never not been cool as f*ck, but thanks to the insane popularity of The Walking Dead, anything and everything zombie is what all the cool kids are into this Halloween season, and two of Denver's premier haunted houses are feeding some bwains into the trend with the "Undead" trapped-in-by-zombies-farmhouse at the 13th Floor, and the "Zombieland" deserted-except-zombies urban landscape attraction at The Asylum.
13th Street is dead-ringing in its fifth-anniversary year with two new state-of-the-art monsters -- all cutting-edge computer/monster/animatronics technology, so much so that these monsters will be the focus of an episode of Travel Channel TV's Making Monsters premiering on September 30 and airing every Sunday in October (the air date for the episode featuring the 13th Floor is TBA). 13th Street is tag-teaming with Greeley-based animatronics company Distortions Unlimited, along with Microsoft and Intel, to pull this off, and it's pretty sweet that Denver gets to be on the vanguard of new, creepy monster technology.
The new Undead attraction (included in the ticket price with 13th Floor) is in an old built-to-scale farmhouse, where guests will get to "fend for their lives" all Shaun of the Dead-ish as zombies try to get in.
