Having the best equipment, amenities, or service is sometimes not enough to attract new customers. Perhaps strategies circling around these aspects of business worked a couple of decades ago, but times have changed. The world has become crazier crazy for more pop culture trends. And those who integrate these mainstream characters or worlds into their attractions hold better success than the rest.
One of the many crazes that had been going around these last few years are zombies specifically, a zombie apocalypse. And this has been reflected by several movies, video games and TV series like The Walking Dead, Warm Bodies, 28 Days Later, World War Z, Resident Evil and the list goes on.
Whats surprising about this trend is that people are not getting enough of it just yet. In fact, some are praying for a virus breakout that will result to a zombie apocalypse. This has led to several insane ideas for zombie survival. But despite the rise of chainsaw bikes and truck tanks, the single most reliable way of killing zombies (that arent too ridiculous for that matter) is to shoot them in the head.
This means of survival, and the scientific possibility that zombies can truly explode one day, resulted to the creation of a shooting simulator with zombie scenarios. Of course, this doesnt sound new, because several other shooting games have already entered the market with the same themes and are now available at gaming centers.
These, however, fall short when it comes to experience. And when compared side by side, the shooting simulator is a gem. Not only can friends all play together and use replicas of actual guns, they get to use the same shooting simulators that professional marksmen train with. In other words, its as good as the real thing. Despite the holistic experience, the entertainment value of the simulator is never compromised. It will be fun and exciting, with high quality digital visuals to make the game even closer to reality. See examples here.
What made shooting simulators even better for businesses is how it pulls customers in droves. Its no fun to live the life of a zombie apocalypse survivor alone after all. Its best to have friends around, and see who will die first and who will live long enough to finish the game. Furthermore, this will be more than just a game. It can be a way for local folks the doomsday preppers specifically to train for the big day. Shooting is not childs play, and since gun laws are getting stricter, owning one and practicing at home wont be the easiest choice, let alone the cheapest.
Suffice to say, the shooting simulator is a cross between training and entertainment. Coupled by the craze on zombies thats still burning like wildfire, itll be a great additional attraction to a business establishment and an even better investment. And its all because it captures two very different demographics: that group of friends playing for fun, and those doomsday preppers who simply want to improve their aim, accuracy, and reflex.
