^^^^^ The only thing safer I'd imagine would be an underground bunker or an island that has been completely cleared of the zombies.

In World War Z the US government is evacuated to Hawaii where they setup the new location to run the government. I'd imagine that Hawaii or a similar island location would be good for containment.

Romero's Day of the Dead would beg to differ.

^Well, the bunker was safe. It was the activities of the residents that was the issue.

Which seems to be the problem across the board in zombie media. The only safe place in a zombie apocalypse is a place where there are no humans to fuck it up.

Easy answer, then. Let the zombies win.

I haven't read all of World War Z, so I'm not sure if this is covered, but I figure an oil rig would be fairly safe from zombies.

Once your supplies run out, whattya got?

You'd need a crane operator and copter with pilot, too.

Plus hurricane season wouldn't be fun.

The problem with a prison or oil rig, is you'd STILL need to take lots of trips outside for supplies. Especially the more people you get in there.

Edit. Oops, looks like Disrupter beat me to it.

Nuclear submarine or an aircraft carrier might be another.

I was in bed last night thinking why don't they look for a lake with an island in the center? The zombies can't swim and you would be relatively safe. Or just get a boat and drop anchor. Sure you would have to leave and forage for supplies but you could possibly get a some rest.
Just get a carnvival cruise liner go down to the bahamma's and ancor the boat a mile off shore. Use smaller boats to get supplies. A zombie can not just walk out a mile into the ocean with currents and find the ancor and climb the chain to the boat.

Speaking that, what about all the naval vessels out at sea, they are zombie proof unless their own crew start to just die and turn to zombies.
A more feasible solution for the characters in TWD would be to find a decent island on Lake Lanier. Being a man-made lake in the mountains/foothills of North Georgia, it has plenty to choose from. And since it's such a large lake, it would be easy to live off the fish. The only thing I'd worry about is if Buford Dam eventually gave way. By then, hopefully the walkers wouldn't be much of a problem.

edited to add: speaking of World War Z, I didn't realize that JMS is writing. I dunno if that bods well or good for the film.
Clearly JMS can do no wrong.
I believe they weren't happy with his script, it wasn't "commercial" enough, so, it's been/being rewritten (Though I don't know to what degree). I believe the actual complaint was he was too true to the source material, which wouldn't be commercial enough.
Immediately upon the director coming on board, the script was rewritten. Turns out that it was rewritten *so* extensively that JMS no longer has a writing credit for the film. I think this is pretty unusual.

Not at all; welcome to Hollywood!

WWZ is required reading for those who want to survive the zombie apocalypse. Or at least those who will die DURING the zombie apocalypse, but safe in the knowledge that the world may eventually turn out more or less okay. :P

I don't know. Zombies may not be able to swim, but providing the water isn't too deep they can walk along a lake bed easy enough. It may even take them a while but Zak is nothing if not persistent and determined. On the other hand, if it's an island with cliffs on all sides, then that might make it the safest option. You'd still need enough square acreage to grow enough crops to feed yourselves, survive winter plus extra for emergencies AND a fresh water supply. Then there's the problem of fuel. Between fires and building material you might find yourself running low on trees after a year or two. No matter which way you cut it, I think that unless you can clear and make save a LARGE island (think Ireland, Iceland, Madagascar etc) then you're going to ultimately end up starving or freezing to death.
