The train barrels down the track as you frantically jockey your way into the best position for survival. The train passengers’ screams are deafening but have unsuccessfully drowned out the eerie “brains, we want brains” chant that echoes from everywhere. The uncertainty has become intolerable as you are thrust closer and closer to your imminent death. The laser gun you grip in your hands is the only defense that lies between you and the next decomposing, flesh eating, brain hungry, undead creature destined to make you his supper.
Is this the end — the zombie apocalypse? No, no it isn’t. It is the beginning of the new Sacramento RiverTrain attraction, The Zombie Train. It is one-part passenger train and one-part a zombie-killing-machine.
