Willamette Mall (officially called Willamette Parkview Mall) is a shopping mall located in the fictional town of Willamette, Colorado. It first opened in 2003 and has since become a strong landmark for the community. The mall serves as the primary setting for Dead Rising and Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop.
During the events of Dead Rising, Willamette Mall was just about to celebrate its third anniversary. As a result of a zombie outbreak, the mall quickly becomes a refuge point for survivors.
Notable features include a helipad, security room, recreational park, indoor/outdoor area, food court, indoor roller coaster and many stores where the player, as protagonist Frank West, can grab whatever they desire to use against the zombie threat. In this mall you will find mass amounts of zombies, psychopaths that decided zombies aren't the only threat, and unusually strong old women who feel that their dog's life is more important than anyone elses.
