Jake Resnicow Presents ZombieLand In East Rutherford On October 30th

(EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ) -- From the team that built WE Party and Kygo at Javits Center comes ZombieLand!, an immersive LGBTQ+ dance music experience taking place Halloween eve at the world's largest indoor theme park.  Presented by Jake Resnicow, ZombieLand! will be held at Nickelodeon Universe Theme Park on Saturday, October 30 and will feature over 30 rides and attractions and music by house music legend Dennis Ferrer.

"We have been working for two years on this insane plan to takeover America's largest indoor theme park for Halloween," explains event producer Jake Resnicow.  "ZombieLand!  will be the first-ever takeover of Universe Theme Park.  The park will be exclusively ours for the entire night!"  

Attendees will be able to cruise above the entire 8-acre park on the Sky Railway or soar 150-feet on the world's tallest and longest free-spinning coaster.  "I can't wait to bring the beats to the children" says Dennis Ferrer, a Grammy-nominated producer who has been an influential force within the house music scene for over two decades. Known for his many dance floor anthems like "Hey Hey", "Church Lady", and "Touch The Sky", Ferrer has performed at the world's top venues and festivals including Pacha, Space Ibiza, Fabric London, The Brooklyn Mirage and El Row, to name a few. "There is nothing better than whisking clubgoers on a magical, musical journey, especially when it is on a dancefloor surrounded by thrill rides!"

Joining Dennis Ferrer will be LAS BIBAS FROM VIZCAYA, direct from Brazil.  "This is going to go down as the wildest Halloween dance party ever," predicts the drag diva, DJ, singer, musician and music producer.  "Jake will no doubt bring out all the tricks and treats for Halloween!" 

RuPaul's Drag Race Winners Aquaria and Yvie Oddly will perform at 9:00pm, followed by a very special surprise performance at midnight.
