Here at BRWC we mostly watch the action on both the big and little screen, but ever so often we leave the screens behind and get immersed in the drama ourselves. The folks over at Zed Events have just released the cinematic trailer for the Wasteland experience. It looks incredible. So much so that yours truly is going to try and survive two hours in the wasteland on 21 July. Yes, I will be joining over 40,000 victims since their launch 6 years ago lay on ‘full immersion’ survival events in an 250,000 Sqft abandoned shopping mall for the holiday season. Each event in their Reading facility is an adrenalin and blood soaked survival horror event like no other. From arrival, the thrill seeker will be part of an unfolding story that will play out in real time.
WHAT IS WASTELAND?
It is a 2+ hour fully immersive experience where you must fight for your survival across a 25,000 sqft post-nuclear shopping mall.
THE WORLD OF WASTELAND
With the cities of the UK obliterated by nuclear explosions, the world as we know it ended. 6 years later, the few survivors either banded together to form tribes in order to survive or went insane. Conflict and horror are a way of life. You will join a tribe and together fight for survival across our massive abandoned shopping mall, clashing with other tribes and unknown enemies. Part combat game, part horror attraction, all the insanity of the Wasteland!
FILM QUALITY COSTUMES, PROPS AND SPECIAL EFFECTS
The Wasteland Experience was put together by using our years of running scare attractions and working in film/TV production. The world you will enter was created by the likes of Mark Cordory Creations, Dust Monkey (who are both amongst the worlds premier post apocalypse costume makers) and the Oscar winning Coulier Creatures. Everything you will experience will be utterly insane and very real!
ULTRA REALISTIC WEAPONS
The ‘Wasteland Experience’ is powered by the iCombat tactical training system, the most realistic weapon simulation in the world and is used by Police and Military around the globe. This is a combat system that uses ultra realistic guns with recoil, noise, muzzle flash and hit detection with no projectiles being fired.
I just hope I will survive, I mean most of the cast of the Walking Dead are now properly dead. If you want to join in on the fun, then tickets are £99 and you can find out more information here: https://www.zedevents.co.uk/booking/themall/
