CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) – Out on the outskirts of Conway, contagion has spread, the dead are walking, and the only safe house left in the country has been compromised. Through the emergency exit, you’re left with no choice but to jump on a ride through the woods with nothing but the weapons you’re given and your own fear.

Paintball Arkansas Zombie Hunt has opened for its second year and offers a frightful ride on the Zombie Annihilation Vehicle, 100 rounds of glow-in-the-dark ammo, and a tour through a labyrinth of horrors. The 25 to 30 minute tour is $25 per person and includes all of the above plus sideshow acts by PaulPrater.com.

Thursday was opening night and tours run to Nov. 8 on Thursdays through Saturdays. Gates open at 7 p.m.

'Back to the Future' pricing at Mid-America Science Museum

Hot Springs, AR: On December 10th, Mid-America Science Museum (MASM) is stepping back in time with extremely low pricing.  General Admission for this one day event will be $2.75 + tax (all ages), the same price for Museum general admission in 1982. 

“It’s the Museum’s way of saying thanks to the community.”  Said Andy Marquart, Executive Director “We are fortunate to have so many people who support us and believe in what we do, and a discounted pricing like this is a way we can extend our gratitude.” 

Recently the Museum was awarded a $7.8 Million capital grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation to renovate the Museum’s building and exhibits. The renewed MASM will offer stronger connections between science and the Museum visitors' everyday lives.
