Paintball And Halloween Collide At Redneck Zombie Massacre

Friday, October 12, 2012

Guthrie Pumpkin Farm in Riceville, Tn. has added two new haunted attractions.  Shocktober Nights includes Redneck Zombie Paintball and gives visitors a chance to interact with real live “zombies.“ 

Josh Guthrie, event organizer, says “You don’t have to be a spectator anymore.  Now you have the chance to create your own adventure and actually participate in the experience.”  Participants are loaded onto a wagon and venture into the pitch black darkness where “zombies” are lurking.  However,  each participant is armed with a loaded paintball gun and has the opportunity to stop the zombies in their tracks.  

Shocktober Night events also include the Field Of Screams, a haunted corn maze with over a mile of "bone chilling terror."  Creatures of all kinds will be lying in wait in the darkness while guests attempt to navigate their way through the corn.  

Shocktober Nights will run each Friday and Saturday night through the month of October.  Hours of operation are  from 7-11 p.m. It is recommended to attend earlier in the month to avoid long lines which are expected closer to Halloween.  Admission is $10 for the Field of Screams and $15 for Redneck Zombie Paintball.  Both events are available for a package price of $19, sales tax included.

A Disturbing Trend At Exit 11 - And Response (6)

So, am I the first to notice a trend?   How many wrecks does exit 11 need before anyone asks "whats up with that?"  I have lost count of the wrecks that continue to happen, even after last year's awful loss of life (which I believe 51 percent of the blame should fall on the THP officer on duty).  The problem with this section of interstate are sight lines ...
