Outbreak Dread The Undead in Pigeon Forge


Where: Hollywood Wax Museum 

This new exhibit is a must see during the halloween season! As part of the force meant to stop a worldwide outbreak, you’ll make your way through the ransacked lab, ruined morgue, and rotting basement to assure the undead are contained. What happened here at Chemacorp, where the company was once the global leader in biotechnology? Their experimental DNA-altering Alpha Strain has gone terribly wrong. Unfortunately, it has turned soldiers into aggressive zombies. Now, the building is on lockdown and the only way out is through an emergency exit! Along the way, the sights, sounds, smells, and real live scares will keep you on your toes. It’s a thrill-a-second as you avoid being infected by the undead or exposed to the remaining aerosol doses of Alpha Strain. Contain your fear? No way!
