Universal Studios Japan in Osaka has recreated Resident Evil’s Raccoon City as a zombie-shooting simulator, implementing a laser-powered shooting system used in police combat training.

Biohazard The Real (Biohazard being the Japanese moniker for Resident Evil) takes visitors on a tour of Raccoon City – taking heavy visual influence from Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis – during a zombie outbreak. Guests are then ushered into the Raccoon City police station and armed with a gun – a 700g model with 30 virtual bullets, as indicated by an illuminated wrist strap – and told to take down as many zombies as they can – plus Resident Evil creatures the Licker and Tyrant –  working their way through a hospital to reach the Umbrella Research Center for the final confrontation. Tours are divided into two stages, leading teams of up to eight people around the attraction, and take approximately 10 minutes.

If the cries of “Brains!” has made your stomach rumble, you can even stop off at the local restaurant:

Rumours that tour guests are forced to pivot before walking and can’t shoot while moving are as yet unconfirmed.
