Fight Zombies in a Real Abandoned Shopping Mall

April 19th, 2012 by Ed Grabianowski

If you’re near Reading, England and have £119.00 to spare, you can spend a few hours in an actual shopping mall filled with groaning zombies. Fight for your life using airsoft weapons while completing missions and avoiding the walking dead.

A team of special effects wizards have taken the hollowed out shell of the Reading Shopping Centre and stocked with undead. Here’s how the creators describe, with that particularly British form of bone-dry humor:

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.

They’ve put together a nice video to show you what’s in store:

    When do you get the all expenses paid Robot Viking press passes, plane tickets, and hotel accommodations in order? You new star reporter thanks you in advance.

    Yup, you’re all set. But the plane is a hang-glider, the accomodations is curled up next to a homeless guy under a bridge, and the press passes…uh, you’ll see.

    That sounds like how I’m getting to PAX! Now I just have to figure out where to get hang glider tickets and reserve a bridge.
