A disease is spreading across Arizona. The Outbreak is turning people into the undead. ZOMBIES! Recent developments at Schnepf Farms in Queen Creek have had a positive impact because currently the farm is working with the government in a top secret mission to figure out the best approach to keep this disease contained.
Hundreds of brave zombie fighters are needed to train for this secret mission. You will be armed with state of the art weapons (paintball guns) and asked to board 40′ Zombie Combat Vehicles (hayrides) that will take you to the fields to save us all from The Outbreak. The government needs your help. Good luck out there.
ADMISSION: Includes Paintball gun and 100 neon paintballs that can be traced as you shoot! (You will have the opportunity to purchase more at 5$ per 100.

All activities in the base camp take cash and debit/credit card. The commanders on the war rigs sell ammo but are cash only. If you only bring card, no worries! You can purchase more ammo before your ride at the ammo tent by the entrance of the mission tent.
Yes! To reduce the wait time when you arrive we have implemented timed tickets.
When you go to purchase your ticket (either at the entrance or online) you will be given date and time options in hour increments. Once you have your ticket scanned at the event, you will be given a group number that will be called out when your trailer is ready. This will shorten your in-line wait so you can enjoy the other activities around Base Camp Ray.
Absolutely not! All guests are safe and secure on the war rigs from enemy or friendly fire. The paintball guns are mounted to the trailers to prevent them from turning around and shooting other recruits. Zombies are not armed, nor are they able to touch any guests.

If you want more you can either purchase extra pods of 100 paintballs for $5 at the ammo tent via cash or debit/credit card or on the war rigs mid-ride from your commander via cash. The average recruit shoots at least 200 paintballs in a ride. If you purchase more ammo than you needed for the ride, unused ammo tickets can be refunded at the ammo tent after your ride.
There is no minimum age to participate, however all riders must be at least 48″ tall. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by a adult, that adult must also purchase a general admission ticket for the ride.

The Outbreak is a rain or shine event. Due to safety regulations, nearby lightning is the only reason we would ever shut down camp.
Instead of fast passes or skip the line passes, we have implemented timed ticketing. This way you can select the hour time frame you’d like to arrive and ride and guarantees no longer than an hour wait time (however most waits are no longer than 30 minutes).
With the implementation of timed tickets, we have shortened the wait time to 1 hour at most. However, most guests’ wait time does not exceed 30 minutes.
