I can’t see my city on the list of Zombie Schools, what happened?

We only run zombie schools in the city we run the actual game in. If you can’t see your city it means we have not gone an upcoming game there. To see if your city is in the running for future tours, keep an eye on our Facebook page for announcements, or sign up for our game alerts here.

What are the actual game dates?

Up to date game dates can be found here

How long is zombie school and what times do I have to be there?

Every time we visit a city we run four sessions of zombie school
Saturday Morning – 10am until 1pm
Saturday Afternoon – 2pm until 5pm
Sunday Morning – 10am until 1pm
Sunday Afternoon – 2pm until 5pm

Where are the zombie schools?

These are held in venues close to the center of the city we are running the game in. These are either a short walk away, or accessible by public transport.

How do I get my deposit back?

You will get this back, in cash, at the end of the night you volunteer. Please note, we ask that you show photo ID before we issue the return.

I have booked a place at Zombie School and paid a deposit but have heard nothing, what do I do?

If you have received a ticket and an invoice from Xing, you’re good to go. The time and date are on this, along with the venue address. We also send out emails about two weeks before zombie school, so don’t worry if you don’t hear before then. If you haven’t received a ticket please contact

All the sessions are booked up, what can I do?

We are afraid we have limited capacity at Zombie School; there are only so many rookie zombies we can deal with. Better luck next time.

I can’t make Zombie School, can I still volunteer?

Unfortunately, you have to come to zombie school to volunteer with us.

How old do you have to be to be a volunteer?

Sorry guys, but it is over 18s only.

How many nights do you have to volunteer to get get a free ticket?

You will only have to volunteer for one night to get your ticket.

Can I transfer my new ticket to another city?

Unfortunately not, your free ticket is only available in the city you have volunteered in.

What if I have been to Zombie School before and want to volunteer again?

We ask that our zombies attend and pass one zombie school each year before they can chase for us. This is to refresh the health and safety training and get you up to speed on the changes we have made to the game. If you have passed zombie school this year please email zombies@slingshoteffect.co.uk with details of where you want to volunteer and where you took zombie school before you sign up again.

I have a health condition, can I still volunteer?

Yes, we do our utmost to make sure everyone can participate, but it is important to make us aware when you arrive at Zombie School.

Where do I inquire about paid work for 2.8 Hours Later?

Please send an email to casting@slingshoteffect.co.uk containing your CV, which city you would like to work and which role you would like to be considered for and we will be in touch.
