Until Zombies Rise, Resident Evil Doesn’t Get Any More Real Than This

By Spencer . July 1, 2013 . 12:35am

residentevilUniversal Studios Japan has worked closely with Capcom on promotions for Monster Hunter and typically around Halloween time Lickers and other Resident Evil creatures roam around the park after dark.


Resident Evil The Real is an upcoming attraction that gives park-goers a 700g model gun which they use to shoot zombies. This isn’t a video game, it’s a real life experience with zombies and like the Resident Evil games a shortage of bullets. Guests wear a virus infection meter that shows if you’re contaminated or not.


The walkthrough attraction takes about five to ten minutes to go through. Resident Evil The Real will open on July 19 to November 10, 2013.

    Haha this is the first time i would ever want to go to a amusement park and actually really enjoy myself (can’t go on roller coasters so it gets boring just walking around doing nothing)

  • dragoon_slayer12

    I wish I was loaded do I can go. I’d try to make high scores

  • HassanJamal

    OK, i want this. This sounds fun.

  • DyLaN

    Want…. Guess I will take the closest thing available to me instead (Dark Escape 4D)….

  • tubers

    Something similar was in Australia.. it bombed though.

    “Patient Zero”. Youtube it.

    they should set up the guns so they don’t fire unless you are standing still

    • h4mx0r

      and give you magnetized boots so you can only walk around with tank controls

  • Gilgamesh2025

    That’s a great idea! lol, awesome! xD

  • Shhhhhhheez, does Universal USA have attractions this elaborate? If so I might have to go there… someday.

    • Not the one in Hollywood, at least. They do have themed mazes set up for October (I’ve always like Knott’s Scary Farm more!). Last year I think they had one for Silent Hill, but I think it was geared more towards promoting the latest SH film, so… eh!
      There are at least a couple similar zombie apocalypse events that I know people took part in and said it was fun.

  • Now I can live my dream of becoming Barry!

  • Maybe if I save every check from now until October I might be able to make it… sigh, I can dream. It sounds super fun!
