Zombies taking over Wild River Country


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Billed as "Arkansas' most terrifying horror trail," the theme park you know for water slides is getting a makeover.

The Wilds of Wild River Country will open this Friday. It's the first time the water park has tried a Halloween-themed event.

There are haunted mazes, numerous scare zones and zombies wandering through the park.

It's a new horror themed attraction that will help the water park stay afloat in the off season.

Chris Shillcutt, Wild River Country's vice president of operations says, the theme, 'Beware of the Infected', allows guests to take a journey through mutants, monsters and maniacs.

"It's a haunted trail, it will be over 30 minutes long. Probably, 30 to 45 minutes in duration, closer to the latter. There will be 50 to 60 live or semi-live characters, there's some animatronics."
