7 Best Landmarks For Surviving A Zombie Attack (Of The Day)

It's coming. Are you ready? From Survival Goods.

After the frantic fun of the initial onslaught, where you alleviate your frustrations with some mindless mayhem, it’s time to get practical and figure out where you can weather the undead storm.

Blackpool, UK

According to Dr. Dale Seslick, author of Dr. Dale’s Zombie Dictionary, Blackpool Tower in the UK is one of the safest landmarks to be at during a zombie attack because of its height. Due to the decomposition of the brain, a zombie lacks the manual dexterity and co-ordination required for climbing; so, anywhere high up which requires a ladder for access should be reasonably safe. This would make other landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower in Paris and Tokyo Tower in Japan ideal candidates as well.

Stockholm, Sweden

Thirty meters below the center of Stockholm, buried underneath solid granite bedrock, inside a converted nuclear bunker, lies the Bahnhoff Data Center. Sealed off from the world by a coded entrance door 40 cm thick, the Bahnhoff Data Center is one of the safest places in the world, and if you could get access to it, would be an ideal place to hide from a Zombie attack. Designed to withstand a hydrogen bomb, the center is powered by two German submarine engines and not only has a fully stocked kitchen, but also a waterfall and numerous greenhouses.

Fort Knox, KY

If the tanks, Apache helicopters, armed guards, 30,000 soldiers, electric fences and concrete-lined walls aren’t enough to keep the Zombie’s at bay, then surely hiding behind the US Bullion Depository’s 22-ton, solid-steel door will keep you safe. The US Bullion Depository, commonly known as Fort Knox (due to the Army base of the same name situated close by), is one of the safest places on Earth. Built to house a large portion of the US gold reserves, the depository is designed to be impenetrable by an attacking force.

Fouras, France

Zombies cannot swim. They lack the intellectual capacity or the required buoyancy to traverse water. So any structure surrounded by a large body of water should suffice as an adequate Zombie defense. Located off the coast of the south of France is Fort Boyard, a nineteenth-century fort which was abandoned in 1913. Now completely uninhabited, this island fortress would make the perfect refuge from a Zombie attack, as it is surrounded by a particularly large moat: the Atlantic Ocean. Designed to repel the British, this fortress comes equipped with canon mounts and was once used as a prison, meaning it is pretty secure.

  1. Who's that in the Mugshot of the Day? Honey Boo Boo's mama?

  2. None of those sound very appealing. I guess I won't worry about it. I don't think I'll survive the initial onslaught anyway. :-)

  3. I'll just take my chances here. I've been watching the Walking Dead to pick up tips. :)

  4. I vote for Ft. Knox because I just love bullion. Wait, is it the beef kind?? Still good.

  5. Local masonic lodges... all bring, strong doors, no windows. (at least- many of them are).

  6. I know the likelihood of a zombie attack is nil, but I imagine my strategy is pretty much the same as a bear attack.

    I don't have to outrun the bear/zombie, I just have to outrun whoever is with me.
