One of the coolest things we’ve heard about here at the Horror Asylum in quite some time is a newly opened attraction here in the UK which allows lucky participants to enter an abandoned shopping mall and take on hordes of the undead in a new real-life zombie experience! The new zombie based attraction, based in Reading, is a special 3 hour long experience day that allows you to battle with numerous zombie actors using movie-quality special effects and video game style missions. However, as amazing as it all sounds it’ll sadly only have a very limited lifespan as the mall in which the experience is being held will be facing demolishment in the near future. The attraction opened earlier this month and will run each weekend up until the point of the shopping centre being torn down. However, fear not as similar events are also currently available in both Milton Keynes and in a manor house in Cheshire. Read on for more details about the event and to sign up.
“In this spectacular ‘full immersion’ experience, you’ll be briefed and armed by the Police Special Zombie Bashing Unit. They’ll fill you in on the full, unfolding, undead apocalypse that is going down in Reading town. An apocalypse that, for once, you didn’t cause, but will have to try and fix.
Then you’ll hit the spooky, deserted shopping mall, but you won’t be shopping for that lovely little Pashmina you saw in Littlewoods. Instead, you and your team will be depleting the zombie population with full Bronson-style perspicacity. Using state of the art special effects and large, blood-inducing props you’ll tackle a series of computer game like missions in a full-on ‘run and gun’ gore fest.”

The zombie experience day is available from Wish.co.uk and costs £119.00 per person. But you need to really book now while it’s still available!
