Terror reigns at the Colusa County Fairgrounds starting this Friday

colusa-haunted-paintball-hayrideWhile recouping from the infected fallout from last year’s zombie outbreak, a whole new terror has been unleashed bringing your nightmares to life.

The second annual Haunted Paintball Hayride opens this Friday, Sept. 30 and will continue every weekend through October.

“The Zombies are back,” said Colusa County Fair CEO Jonathan Howard. “We’ve put more work into this year’s event with an elaborately designed route.”

Howard added that more targets are included in this year’s Haunted Paintball Hayride as well as added special effects and yes the Zombies will be back.

“I think this year’s ride will be more action packed and offer up quite a few surprises for our riders,” said Howard.

Participants will be given a seat on the specially designed hayride wagon where mounted paintball guns can blast away at its targets.

“Patrons riding the wagons are never targets and will not be shot with paintballs, nor will they ever be touched by any of the actors, or be allowed to touch an actor,” said Howard. “No special clothing is required other than wearing something comfortable.”

Tickets are $15 for a 20-minute ride and are available for purchase at the Fair Office, or online at www.colusacountyfairgrounds.com

There are no age restrictions; however, children aged 12 or under must be accompanied by an adult.

Looking to attend with a group of friends? Howard commented that the Haunted Paintball Hayride staff would do its best to seat a group together; however, it could mean a longer wait in line.
