For most exciting activities, we recommend you to build up your courage and take part in the Survival Zombie which will celebrate in the neighborhood of Ses Païsses. From 11pm to 7am, the neighborhood is transformed into a post apocalyptic scene where the participants will fight against the zombies before the epidemic expands.
