Leo Club of Ipoh Unity (O) organised the first Zombie Escape at Eco Park, Seri Botani Ipoh recently. The tagline of the event was “Nothin’ Gets Your Heart Racing Like… ZOMBIE ESCAPE, Can You Survive?” The main sponsor for the event, Laser Battle provided backdrop and advertising materials.
A total of 120 participants aged 16 to 30, registered for Zombie Escape. Some participants even travelled from Penang, Kuala Lumpur and Selangor for this event. The game consisted of 60 survivors and 60 zombies.
The game of Zombie Escape started with the team of survivors escaping from zombies. They had to solve clues and unlock the safe box in the shortest time to win a game. The role of the zombie however, is to eliminate survivors by getting their life flags. The team with the most kill count wins.
The 1st prize winning survivors of six shared their cash prize of RM1050, Kinta Riverfront hotel complimentary rooms, Bread Espresso Dessert vouchers and The Voice Ipoh RM100 cash vouchers. Smaller cash prizes were given to runner ups.
Vincent Tan Inn Shen, the organizing chairperson said that the purpose to hold the event was to remind people to enjoy the outdoors with their family and friends more. This activity was to keep people away from their electronic devices and enjoy nature.
Laser Battle and LEO Club are looking at long-term partnerships in the future.
