How do I get tickets?

Click on the ‘Buy Tickets’ link in the tickets and dates section. You can pay with debit or credit cards or PayPal. We send out e-tickets only by email.

What are tiered tickets?

We tier our tickets like a music festival. There is no qualitative difference between the tiers, just price. We release the cheapest tickets first, the Early Birds. When they go, we offer the more expensive Standard tickets.

What are preview tickets?

Preview nights are like in the theatre. It’s the full game but as it’s the first night there may be glitches. They are rare, but they do happen. That’s why we don’t charge as much.

Where does the game start?

You will receive the game start location 30 days before the game via email.

What will I have to actually do?

There are a series of locations around the city. You must find your way to each without being caught by zombies that prowl the city. It’s zombie-themed tag on an epic scale. At the start, you are given the first location. If you make it there you will be given the next location, and so on, until you make it to the Asylum and the Zombie disco.

Do we fight back?

No. This is a game of tag. A pretty awesome game of tag, but definitely non-contact. You’ll be chased and you run. If you get touched, you must stop and be marked with the infection by the zombie. Then you carry on. This mark may mean infection or it may not. You will find out when you get scanned in quarantine at the Survivors camp.

What does ‘becoming’ a zombie mean?

You get stamped with the infected stamp and then sent to the treatment room. There we make you up as a zombie and send you into the Zombie Disco.

Is there a minimum age to play the game?

Yes, sorry it’s over 18s only. We operate a Challenge 25 policy, so if you don’t look 25 please bring photo ID http://www.challenge25.org/

Why are you not offering concessions?

We tried it but as our tickets often sell out really quickly we had people buying concessions who didn’t qualify. If you can’t afford the full ticket we do offer preview night at a discount, or you can volunteer to chase. You get training, makeup, and costume. And a free ticket to play.

Can I play with my friends?

Absolutely, come as a gang. No more than eight in a group though.

Can I book a bunch of tickets in my name?

Yup. We don’t check names at the box office, but make sure you forward game info emails to your guests.

What if I come alone?

No problem. We’ll team you up with some other people for the start. A lot of people make friends this way but you can go solo once you’re out there if you are a real lone wolf.

Do I need to dress up?

We love costumes but come as you wish. Some players dress in character, others don’t.

Can I bring weapons or similar props?

This is a definite no. So, no nerf guns, latex swords, frying pans, cosmic death rays, throwing stars or cutlasses etc. Sorry guys, but if you bring anything that might be construed as a weapon by Her Majesty’s finest, we will have to confiscate them at the start.

I want to volunteer to chase or help with the game.

Great! We have lots of opportunities for people to play as zombies or help behind the scenes. Check out the volunteer FAQs at the bottom for info on how to apply. if you go for our Chase & Play deposit, we offer a free ticket in return for a night’s work. You also get to attend the world’s only zombie school.

How physical is the game?

Pretty physical. There is no contact other than possibly being tagged by a zombie, but there will be plenty of running. Wear comfortable shoes, get limber. Doing some training now may well help you survive come to the apocalypse.

What happens if I get separated from my friends, or become lost?

There is a helpline that you can text or call. You can also approach game staff for help if you get into difficulties. They will be identified by t-shirts or high vis. jackets.

Do we have to pay extra for the Zombie Disco?

Nope. Your game ticket gets you into the Zombie disco. We have DJs, huge projected zombie shoot ’em ups, zombies vs humans games, a dance-off and a pay bar.

I want to change nights.

Sorry but tickets are not transferable.

I want to cancel and obtain a refund what do I do?

We do not allow cancellations or give refunds. Please note we do not check names, or start times, so feel free to pass the ticket on.

I can’t play, can I give a ticket to a friend?

Yup. We don’t check names, pass it on.
