PopCap Games and EA are teaming up with the Carolina based entertainment destination Carowinds to bring us a Plants vs. Zombies experience like we’ve never seen before. Dubbed, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 3Z Arena, the team is touting 3Z Arena as “the world’s first intra-active 3-D game experience.”
The plan is to take Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare and convert it into an interactive, competitive experience for up to 68 people at a time. Within a 3,600 square foot arena, two opposing teams will wage garden warfare on 14’6” x 26’ screens complete with independent 5.1 surround sound each. The experience runs close to five minutes each time.
Senior Creative Direct of the Plants v. Zombies franchise, Jeremy Vanhoozer, praised the idea, saying “we’re always striving to create new and unique ways for people to experience the Plants vs. Zombies universe. Our franchise is all about creating fun moments and doing things differently. This first ever interactive Garden Warfare attraction from Carowinds will be unlike anything people have seen before and we can’t wait for them experience it next spring.”
Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 3Z Arena is set to open for Carowinds in Spring of 2016. The new attraction will feature the Garden Warfare style of Plants vs. Zombies action, but will also include a few new characters; Super Brainz, ” a zombie super hero who thinks he’s an 80’s action movie star,” and Citron, “a bounty-hunting orange from the future.”
