If you’re near Reading, England and have Â£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 â€˜full immersionâ€™ experience, youâ€™ll be briefed and armed by the Police Special Zombie Bashing Unit. Theyâ€™ll fill you in on the full, unfolding, undead apocalypse that is going down in Reading town. An apocalypse that, for once, you didnâ€™t cause, but will have to try and fix.
Then youâ€™ll hit the spooky, deserted shopping mall, but you wonâ€™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 youâ€™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:
