2.8 Hours Later is a zombie-themed tag on an epic scale. You’ll find yourself in the city five years after the original outbreak. Zombie infection rates outstrip births and humanity are on the brink of extinction. You are amongst the last survivors.

You are given a mission: somewhere there is a laboratory. In the laboratory is something of great value. Find the lab, discover what it contains and brings it back. But between you and the lab lies 2.8 miles of marauding zombies. Will you make it without becoming infected? Will you survive the night?


A mobile phone is used to find friends and ask for help if you get lost. Money is a good idea as there is a BAR at Asylum. This is a game, not a race – but it is a physical game, so dress accordingly. Think of it this way: if you had time to dress for the zombie apocalypse what would you wear? If you’re thinking weather appropriate clothes that allow you the comfort and maneuverability to outrun a zombie, stand up to exposure to zombie gore* while keeping your phone and valuables safe then you are getting close. Heels = injury.


The start location will be released to ticket buyers in an email 30 days before the game. If you have bought a ticket and do not receive this email, check your spam folder. If you still can’t find it, call our helpline. The time on your ticket is your start time. There are three start times to help reduce queueing but there may be queues.

Please note that this is a ticket only event.


The game will last about between one and a half to three hours – it depends on how quick you are. After the game, there is the Zombie disco, on till 1 or 2 in the morning. So make sure you have got whatever you need with you for the night. You will be starting in groups of six to eight people. You will be told where to go to the first location. The rest is up to you.


The game ends with a zombie disco, complete with a bar that the most resourceful apocalypse survivor would be proud of. However, for safety reasons, we do require that you don’t drink alcohol before or during the game. Drunk people always hurt themselves or get eaten. It’s a rubbish survival plan.
A full survivors guide will be provided to all players on the night of the game. You will need this to find other survivors and your own salvation…
