Zombie Mall Anyone? I Call Research Trip
In one of my guest posts during my blog tour, I’d mentioned how it’d be cool if there was a reality show that pitted humans with zombies in a survivor-type reality show. The humans would have to find shelter, food, etc, all while trying to avoid being eaten by the zombies. well, I completely forgot about this article I read from io9 about a mall that lets you live out this kind of an experience.
A British company, Wish.co.uk, lets you test out your zombie survival skills set inside either an abandoned mall or manor. For about £139 you can spend about 3 hours hunting and fighting. Before you go in, you’re briefed by the Police Special Zombie Bashing Unit. They will explain to you all about the apocalypse and give you basic training on how to use the airsoft weapons you’ll be provided with. After that, you’ll be taken to the deserted shopping mall where
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.
Of course all of the zombies are paid actors, but that doesn’t mean it’ll be easy. You (and your team of up to 15 people) will have to watch out for the horde (pack? group? What’s a zombie group called?) as you move through the mall and the obstacles. To me, this sounds like a lot of fun! Of course, I’d suck at it, but still!
Would you go to a “zombie” infested mall and bat your survival skills in a test of wills? To read more, check out Wish.co.uk.
