Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare: 3Z Arena

Plants vs. Zombies™ Garden Warfare 3Z Arena is the world's first intra-active 3-D attraction. After entering a state-of-the-art arena and picking a team – plants or zombies – guests are immersed within the Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 universe in an epic battle to find the golden gnome. Packed with astonishing effects and zany action, players compete for high scores and bragging rights.

The new attraction, exclusive to Carowinds, is based on the Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare franchise - a hilarious and over-the-top shooter videogame series that drops you into a crazy, all-out battle between plants and zombies in their fight for suburbia. Players can join the fight with new characters, including Super Brainz, a zombie superhero who thinks he's an 80's action movie star, and Citron, a bounty-hunting orange from the future. 

An intra-active experience means the game allows players to interact with the opposing team's screen. Guests will step inside the state-of-the-art Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare: 3Z Arena complex decked with 3-D technology, massive screens, surround sound, and motion-based seats, to enjoy outrageous and imaginative encounters with their competition. Teams compete in the Plants vs. Zombies universe during an almost five-minute backyard battle, where they'll shoot screens with blasters and track their scores as they go.
