Trick or Treat… and Win With Dr Pepper!

Posted by & filed under Competitions.

Want to win something either hideously diabolical, or else exquisitely lovely-fied? Those are the choices with our fiendish new prize draw which we have devised with out good and bubbly friends over at Dr Pepper. It’s your typical Trick or Treat challenge, so synonymous with this time of year. For instance, in our first instalment, which will get drawn on October 28th, all you have to do is answer a simple question and enter the draw. Then, if selected, you could either get a delightful Deluxe Afternoon Tea at 17 locations all over the place. Or else you could be driven deep beneath the tunnels under Waterloo Station and face the horrors of our Zombie Blitz 1940, where dead World War II German soldiers will be all up in your grill. You see, one is a trick and one is a treat. But what might be a treat or some will be a trick for others and you have NO POWER over the decision. There will be more draws in upcoming weeks, to thoroughly celebrate this season of right spookiness. Head over to the Dr Pepper Facebook page RIGHT HERE to find out more and enter the draw. And to…

Our Zombies in ITV’s Whitechapel…?

Posted by & filed under Celebrities, News.

We know what you are thinking. “Big deal, your zombies were hanging out in a slightly fashionable part of East London, possibly visiting the renowned Whitechapel Gallery or picking up some niche cheese at Spitalfields Market”. No, you big lemon, not IN Whitechapel but ON Whitechapel – the hit ITV crime drama starring Chalky from Quadrophenia and Herr Lipp! In the series, people tend to get flayed and our erstwhile detectives have to find out who has done the flaying. And just when they think they’ve nabbed the flayer, somebody else gets flayed. So where do our zombies encroach? We’d better not say for fear of people shouting SPOILER ALERT at us in that way that people do these days. But you can see them, including our hero and confidante Rob Hall, on Wednesday 2nd October on ITV at 9pm – or after that via ITVplayer HERE. If all these zombie shenanigans have got you hot and bothered, take a peek at our plethora of zombie bashing adventures RIGHT HERE

Spare a Thought For the Millionaires [Infographic]

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

As the various millionaires who govern us have been pointing out for a while now, financially things are quite tough, especially for millionaires. Lugging your various items of jewellery down to ‘Gold 4 Cash 4 U’ on the High Street every few days, just to get a bit of Foie Gras money, it’s a total nightmare. We decided to take a stand with our affluent, large-pocketed, fairly monocled brothers and sisters and examine just how far a cool million quid could have got you in years gone by compared to today. Once you’ve have a thoroughly large squizz at some of the factoids on offer, I’m sure you’ll be popping all your kebab money into an envelope and pressing it into the hand of a passing Earl of Marquis with due haste. As Kermit said, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green‘ – but as we will discover, it’s also not easy having green. And in the true spirit of capitalism and enterprise, feel free to steal this beloved Infographic using the embed code below. SPREAD THE WORD! SAVE THE TOFFS AND TRUMPS!  

YouTuber BriBry Tries Indoor Skydiving

Posted by & filed under Media, Video.

In his erstwhile attempt to tick off as many things as humanly possible from his bucket list, YouTube superstar BriBryonTour (@BriBryontour if you are Twitlerate) and his beautifully coiffured friend Jason allowed us to take them for a spot of Indoor Skydiving. For the uninitiated, Indoor Skydiving is skydiving indoors. Or, to explain it in ways that are actually useful, rather than heading quite swiftly downwards from a big plane in the sky, you are blasted upwards by a giant fan thing and float about like a discarded Subway sandwich wrapper caught in an updraught. As you can see from the videotaped results presented below, BriBry had a fabulous time, despite the intervention of his legs. Plus, there’s the added bonus of seeing his forehead for the first time anywhere on the planet! Take that The One Show! Tell the young man exactly how you feel about his exploits by visiting his small, delightful section of the YouTube site RIGHT HERE. Has all that falling upwards in a jumpsuit got you hot and bothered? Book your own Indoor Skydiving funfest ON THIS BIT.  And check out BriBry having a bit of a bash at our SWAT Training from a while…

Posted by & filed under Celebrities, News, Video.

Obviously you are all glued to ITV’s latest game show extravaganza Tipping Point, featuring Ben Shephard and a trio of celebrities trying to outwit a devious machine for charity. But did you know Wish.co.uk, your favourite experience merchant, was involved? Due to our near-frightening devotion to all things Shephard and our love of puzzles, we were delighted to contribute items such as our Theatre Dinner for Two and some exquisite Clay Pigeon Shooting as prizes for the show.

Big in Taiwan: “The Borderless World” Vs Zombies

Posted by & filed under Media, News.

If there is one thing we pride ourselves on here at Wish.co.uk, it’s the hand of friendship we show to any visitors from foreign lands who come to sample our wares. So when Kena Tsang and the gang from The Borderless World, Taiwan’s answer to Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, popped over to look at Zombie Manor House and Zombie Boot Camp, we provided them with the same experience as everyone enjoys. And as you can see in the picture of Kena, she reacted in as many have reacted. With sheer, blood-draining horror. Unlike most of our other customers, she then appeared on Saturday night telly to tell millions of viewers across Asia about the funny things English people do for kicks. While interviewing a professional zombie… Thanks to Kena and the crew, we hope we have made the world slightly more borderless with our actions. Hope to have you guys back soon!

Is a Zombie Apocalypse Possible?

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

Ha, ha! Zombie invasion. Tee hee! Why, that’s a mere frippery created to titillate teenagers and the sort of people who use the internet’s websites. Nothing for me to worry about. WRONG! The rising of the undead and their subsequent fiddling about with your frozen goods and valuables is entirely imminent. Both scientists and Channel 5 are frequently warning us about it. You think all those writers in Hollywood are just making this stuff up? Like they have that kind of imagination? These are the people who have unleashed THREE Alvin and the Chipmunks films onto an unsuspecting public, so I hardly think they have the wherewithal to come up with something like a zombie invasion. As the following Infographic pleasantly illustrates, a zombie apocalypse could happen at any time. Perhaps it is happening right now. Is that old lady on the bus just a bit scabby? Or is it something more sinister? Might want to give her a prod just to check. If you feel to need to prepare for this obvious, planet-shattering event, then you could sign up to one of our many Zombie experiences RIGHT HERE. And spread the word about this imminent apocalypse. Simply thieve the…

Space Travel: Then and Now [Infographic]

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

Space. The final frontier. Except for all those other ones. Like exotically flavoured chutneys. Ever since primitive man learned how to look up without dying, we have been obsessed with that large dark, starry mass that’s out there somewhere. And ever since we noticed it existed, we’ve been trying to get there; either by long ladders, jumping or some sort of catapult. Many, many perished. But all those stupid space attempts are now far behind us, as commercial space travel is just one enormous bank transfer away, for the rich and for the financially well-endowed. We’ve come a long way, from goofy looking spacesuits, food in tubes and dogs with antennas strapped to their heads. This rather nifty infographic explains everything about astro-ventures, from the weird lumpy Russian devices to sleek Space Shuttles that we’d all happily have in our rumpus rooms. Feel free to not only read the infographic with unbridled joy, but to also completely steal it and stick it on your website, using the magical embed code below. No, really! Just take it! And we don’t yet offer space travel ourselves, but you could try this marvellous Water Jetpack Experience. RIGHT HERE. You’ll go… upwards at least….

Leonardo DiCaprio Flyboards in Ibiza…

Posted by & filed under Celebrities, News.

  After all the trouble he had with that Titanic malarky, you’d think Leonardo DiCaprio wouldn’t be heading back into the water any time soon. But a mere 16 years after drawing that lady like one of his French girls, he’s braved the briny deep again, when he partook in a spot of Flyboarding on a water jetpack in Ibiza. Accompanied, according to the report,s by someone SHIRTLESS and someone else BIKINI-CLAD, Leo appeared to love jetting high above the waves powered by a high-density aquatic spurt and nerves of steel. But, I hear you all cry, why are you tormenting us so? It has been well reported in a number of tabloid newspapers and high-level blog posts that the Wish.co.uk Flyboarding Experience sold out long ago, which is why we presume Mr. DiCaprio had to travel all the way to Ibiza to get some on. Be tormented no more, as it just so happens our Flyboarding bonanza is back AND in full effect. Now you, just like old Mr Film Star Man over there, can strap on a pair of magical Jet Boots and scoot high over the waters in an adventure described as both ‘thrilling’ and ‘damp’. And…
