If you haven't attempted the Burn Zombie Burn!
world tour contest then you'd better do it quickly--the deadline is Monday November 2nd. If you can reach the top position on the Secret Lab stage leaderboard by then, you'll be awarded with a trip to the Paris catacombs and Egypt's Valley of the Kings. If you're going for the high score I'd stock up on some caffeine and burn the midnight oil; players have been vying for the top spot for over a month now, and the lead score is 49,751,223.

A Grateful Dead Whirlwind World Tour
The winning player and a friend will start their journey in Paris, where they will stay at The Aida
Opera Hotel, in the heart of the city, for three nights. While in Paris, they will tour the Catacombes
de Paris, a labyrinth of tunnels covered entirely in the skulls and bones of 18th century Parisians. The catacombs, officially known as l'Ossuaire Municipal, were constructed in the late 18th Century to accommodate the overwhelming number of bodies as population soared beyond the capacity of church cemeteries.
The next stop in Paris will be Pere Lachaise Cemetery, one of the most famous cemeteries in the world, and eternal home to the likes of Jim Morrison and Oscar Wilde. Pere Lachaise Cemetery was established in 1804 by Napoleon I, following a ban on cemeteries within the city limits of Paris. If there are zombies to be found in France, the master zombie-killer who wins this tour is sure to find them at these eerie historic locations.
Once Paris has been cleared of any undead, it will be off to Egypt, where the winner will spend five nights at the Mercure Hotel in Luxor, overlooking the Nile River. By day, they will explore ancient Egyptian history with tours of the Valley of the Kings, final resting place of Egyptian kings and nobles including King Tutankhamun, and Hatshepsut Temple, a mortuary temple dedicated to the sun god.
The Valley of the Kings contains at least 63 tombs, with new ones discovered as recently as last year. Nobles, pharaohs and their families were laid to rest there from 1539 BC to 1075 BC. Do they remain at rest? That will be for the Burn Zombie Burn!
contest winner to find out for sure!
A private tour of Hatshepsut Temple will introduce the winner to Hatshepsut, the fifth pharaoh and the longest-reigning woman in the Egyptian dynasty. As was the custom, Hatshepsut oversaw the construction of her own mortuary temple, which stands today on the West Bank of the Nile River, near the entrance to the Valley of Kings.
