Plants vs. Zombie Theme Farm
Plants vs. Zombie Theme Farm is a non mechanical theme park in Wuxi, China. Instead, they have designed a big 'back to basic' garden, telling the story about the popular App Game 'Plants vs. Zombies', by dividing the park into two areas: The Plants and the Zombies. In the plant side guest will find a little farm showing kids how to grow vegetables and herbs. In the Zombie area the giant 'Zombot playground' is the main feature.
The customer wanted an iconic playground, which could clearly visualize the theme and help brand the park. Therefore, we designed the 7,5 meter tall Zombie Robot as the main character, who can be seen from all over the park. Beside him kids can climb in his workshop or in the Zombie Pirate area.
The game has different levels based on themes. Among others a pirate theme, which can be explored at the other playground right next to Dr. Zombot.

The project was developed in collaboration with EA Games and New Pastoralism Group. In order to get the very right mood of the park, and a good interpretation of EA’s figures, a close collaboration was important. From the beginning all parties have been involved in the process discussing ideas and challenges.
