With an onslaught of zombie-related movies and TV series in recent years, ‘how to survive a zombie apocalypse’ is now the most searched ‘how to survive a ___’ question on Google. But don’t you want to find out firsthand if you really have what it takes to survive a zombie apocalypse? From 27 September to 31 October 2018, you can – with the new and improved USS HHN Zombie Laser Tag at Universal Studios Singapore’s Halloween Horror Nights (USS HHN) 8. In the meantime, here are 8 tips that might come in handy for the actual face-off.
1. Wear comfortable shoes
Trust me when I say from experience that adrenaline will be coursing through your veins the moment you face your first zombie in the arena, and you will get so excited that you’ll be running throughout the USS HHN Zombie Laser Tag experience. We highly recommend wearing flat, covered shoes. Safety first.
2. Wear airy (preferably dark coloured) clothes
We know that taking photos with friends as memorabilia is important, but let’s just say that even the most glamourous outfit won’t look all too appealing when blotched with visible perspiration stains. Dark coloured clothes in a relaxed fit are your best bet.
3. Stretch before going in
Sure, this isn’t a competitive 400m dash. But as mentioned, you will be going from zero to a hundred once you face your first zombie in the arena, so it’s best to prepare your muscles for all that fast-twitch action. Believe me, the aches and regret from not stretching were real when I woke up the morning after last year’s USS HHN Zombie Laser Tag. What more with an arena twice as large this year?
4. Listen carefully to your drill sergeant’s briefing
No victory is won without any order in place. Paying close attention to the briefing before entering the arena will ensure that everyone on your team is on the same page. This will go a long way in helping you and your team survive successive waves of zombie attacks, and emerge from USS HHN Zombie Laser Tag victorious.
5. Watch out for turns, corners, and your backs
This tip’s pretty self-explanatory, but we felt it should still be included in this list given that USS HHN is known for its superb scare tactics that often catch guests out of the blue. You never know where the zombies will be coming from.
6. Aim before pressing the trigger
As much as adrenaline will compel trigger-happiness, your laser tag gear will take a few seconds to recharge each time you run out of fire power. Those few seconds could make a world of a difference in a zombie apocalypse, so do your best to minimize wastage of fire power!
7. Formulate a game plan
After a briefing by your drill sergeant, your team will be given some time to devise a game plan before entering the arena. Now that you are aware of Tips 4 – 6, use this time wisely to discuss tag team strategies and any formation you will be using to cover all your bases (and sides).
8. Keep moving (in an orderly fashion)
As undead creatures, the zombies in each zone at USS HHN Zombie Laser Tag are able to re-spawn after a certain amount of time. Pro-tip: the zombies stay within their designated zones, so keep moving forward each time you’ve cleared a zone!
