The Helpers Organization’s 1st Annual Zombie Hunt will be held on Saturday October 28th 2017, 3pm -5pm. The hunt for our trivia zombies begin and ends at the Town Point Park Waterfall in Downtown Norfolk.

There will be fifteen (15) zombies keepers scattered across Downtown Norfolk, all of which hold tokens.  Answer the question/riddle correctly within 90 seconds, each team member gets a token.  Answer it incorrectly or run out of time, the team must elect a team member to be zombified.  The newly turned will act as disruptive for incoming teams.   However, living teammates cannot use their fallen brethren expertise if need be as a shout-out or call a friend.  Each team is limited to one shout-out (a random person off the street) and one call a friend (self-explanatory) for the entire game, so use your resources wisely, teams!   If you really want to your zombified team member back from the dead, find one of the three cures.
