WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — People attending the Indiana State Fair next month can experience something like a zombie apocalypse.

A new exhibit in the fair's Purdue Extension Agriculture/Horticulture Building has a walk-though maze and interactive video game designed to simulate a zombie apocalypse. The maze ends at an underground storm shelter stocked with all the supplies necessary for survival in an emergency.

Purdue Extension disaster specialist Steve Cain says the goal is to help visitors learn about disaster preparedness.

He says the Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention came up with the idea that if you're prepared for a zombie attack, you're prepared for anything. He says the exhibit can help families prepare for disasters of all kinds, including tornadoes and floods.

The fair runs Aug. 5-21.
