Pictures and videos are fine so Go-pros are welcome. But please use your common sense; we would really appreciate hearing about your pics and videos after the event. Spoiler alert – Don’t post them before the event is over please – you’ll give the game away for other people.
CAN I BRING WEAPONS OR PROPS?
Big fat NO.
CAN WE PHYSICALLY FIGHT THE ZOMBIES?
NO. Zombies are actors and volunteers and you must not make any intentional physical contact with them. Please note that our actors may touch you as part of the survival. They will NOT do anything to harm you. If you do not wish to be touched throughout the game, please inform a member of staff when you arrive so that we can give you the correct coloured arm band to inform our actors. We run a zero tolerance policy on physical aggression; the safety of our actors is our priority, and breach of policy will terminate your participation with NO refund.
CAN I KILL THE ZOMBIES?
Yes, when instructed you will be able to shoot the zombies using special pistols that we supply. We recommend head shots as anywhere else and the zombies will keep coming. You are not allowed to physically hit the zombies with anything you might pick up.
CAN THE ZOMBIES INFECT ME?
Yes the zombies can infect you if they touch you so a certain amount of stealth is needed.
Our zombies are drawn towards loud noises and sudden movements.
WHAT HAPPENS AT THE END?
You will be examined by a scientist to see if you have been infected, you will be given a relevant certificate and taken back to your car.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE GAME
Expect the unexpected! You are immersed into an apocalyptic world. It will be October so it’s going to be cold so you need to wear warm clothes to stay alive. There will be blood and areas where you will get dirty so make sure you don’t wear your best clothes.
As soon as you step into the survival area, do not expect it to be nothing but scary. We want this to be as real as possible for you. Our zombies have been told that they can make contact with you. But of course it won’t be violent. Our actors and volunteers will not grab or harm you in any way but will simply play the game. If your NOT happy with being touched? See our FAQ’s to know what steps to take.
You will need to use intelligence, skill, teamwork and stealth to survive.
It will be dark so you will need to bring flashlights.
WARNING: Please note that there will be flashing lights and loud noises in some areas.
You will be in contact with various tasks in different locations. You will need to collect certain items along the way to complete the survival game. Survivors will receive a survival certificate and infected will receive a death certificate.
