Here's how you can help Detroit get world's 1st zombie theme park

Since the bust of the American automotive industry, Detroit has been a shell of its former self. While there have been many attempts to revive the community, they've been met with mixed success. But that could all change if we consider resurrecting Detroit ... with ZOMBIES!

Yes, you heard us right. Think about it—much of the Detroit population have abandoned their homes, leaving many neighborhoods nearly empty and many of the buildings falling into disrepair. If life were a movie (or a videogame), that's exactly where a zombie apocalypse would be, wouldn't it?

That's the basic premise for Marc Siwak's proposed Z-World Detroit, a zombie-themed park in the most dead (get it?) and abandoned parts of Detroit.

It might sound crazy, but given the ongoing zombie craze that's been a part of American culture for decades now, it might just be crazy enough to work. Before casting judgment one way or the other, take a look at this video proposal.

Where do you go when you need $145k to enact your plan? Why, indiegogo, naturally. Take a look at the full writeup there and then tell us—do you think Detroit should be ground zero for the zombie apocalypse, or would it be career suicide for the mayor to even consider?
