"Let's get one thing straight: the zombies are coming. They're coming soon." CNET


You’ve tried Ghostbusting, you’ve tried Troll Hunting. But if you’re after some full-on frightening fun, enlist now to Zombie Boot Camp.

Groaning, shuffling, a horrible stench emanating from somewhere – visits to Grandma are never fun are they? Just kidding! We’re talking zombies who have overtaken vampires recently as the go to horror icon of choice.


"We're sat in the front seat of a beaten-up car. A zombie – mad, frothing, all claws and teeth – lands on the bonnet and starts hammering at the windscreen." FHM

And here’s your chance to learn how to blast them to death! Except they’re already dead. So I guess you’ll be blasting them to extra-death. Which isn’t very nice at all. Under the expert guidance of military instructors trained specifically to battle fictional, imaginary characters, you’ll be given a full weapons training.

Pistols, rifles and grenades will become your new friends as you master these tools of survival. There will be a briefing as you try to work out the best strategic way to dispatch your undead enemy. Then it’s the main event as you and your life-loving, monster-hating comrades enter a deserted spooky warehouse with the intention of clearing it of the zombie hordes. No I said ‘hordes’, what you’re thinking of is unpleasant and almost certainly illegal.


"Is it fun? Of course it is. You get to shoot zombies in the face, throw explosives through doorways, and pretend to be a soldier for a while." FHM

Using fake grenades and all the military cunning you picked up during that half hour’s training, you’ll identify and eliminate the enemy. Or they’ll identify and eliminate you and eat your brains supposedly. As zombies quite enjoy that kind of thing. I’m more of a Frey Bentos man, but there’s no accounting for taste. And afterwards you’ll hopefully be given a sugary cup of tea to calm yourself down.

Looking to try something different? Well, you can’t get much more different than this. Have an unforgettable, undead experience and sign up now for Zombie Boot Camp!


"Great fun and massively useful for future undead-proofing" Pocket-Lint

What happens on the day?

Upon arrival you will be issued with zombie-deterring gloves, zombie-deterring helmet, and a zombie-deterring safety jacket. You will then join a group of slightly nervous participants and enjoy the following exciting activities:

Training

You’ll receive basic training from expert military instructors in a scene that will be reminiscent of Full Metal Jacket but with slightly less bars of soap in a sock. They will teach you how to use a pistol, grenades and a rifle. Use this time well. Zombies aren’t at home to Captain Cock-up.

Mission 1

Then you’ll work as a squad to clear a mock Government Research Facility. After receiving a briefing from the guard force and details on the threat, you will use a combination of paint guns and riot equipment to clear the compound of aggressive zombies and infected lab staff. Perhaps it will be a zombie you recognise from The Bill or Doctors. You will have to work as a team and listen to your instructors to suppress and immobilise the undead. Once you have neutralised the threat you will be evacuated to the Patrol Base in preparation for redeployment. You will also learn a number of life saving techniques in how to immobilise and contain a powerful zombie.

Main Mission

Then you’ll descend into a warehouse full of live zombies. Who are dead. But, you know, moving about and groaning and ting. Once inside you will be split into pairs and once you’ve chosen fun nicknames for you and your partner, put into action the lessons you’ve learnt. You’ll run down corridors and, hopefully, spray the zombies with guns, use simulated grenades to clear rooms and - when you run out of ammo - fight hand to hand with the zombie hordes. Perhaps it will be a zombie you recognise from The Bill or Doctors. Your experience will end with a debrief... if you survive. (You will survive.)

The whole buttock-clenching experience last up to 4 hours and covers the basics of zombie annihilation; your friends and family will be in safe hands should the inevitable apocalypse occur any time soon.

FAQ

Where is the Zombie Boot Camp and how do I get there?

It's in Droitwich, just outside Birmingham. This is the only location - this isn't offered anywhere else. Which makes Droitwich even more magical (if that were possible).

Tell your chauffeur the postcode is WR9 0NR. Or the train is dead simple - just head to Droitwich Spa. It's also near Birmingham Airport if you insist on traveling everywhere by plane.

Are there any extra costs on the day?

No - none at all. All the equipment, ammunition and outerwear is provided. Any extras (like video recordings) are completely optional and won't affect the experience itself.

How many people can take part?

You can book for any number of people you like: from just one person through to a group of 24. On the day, there will be 12-24 people taking part.

Do you take group bookings?

Yes! You can book for as many people as you like - just update the Quantity above. (We can't offer a group discount, as we already offer the lowest price for the boot camp!)

When does it run?

The Zombie Boot Camp runs all year around. It's normally on a Saturday and Sunday (or, as it’s better known, the day Antiques Roadshow is on) but more days will be added as necessary.

What time does it start and finish?

It starts promptly at 2pm and finishes at 6pm. You are therefore advised to arrive between 1pm and 1.30pm.

What should I wear?

Outerwear and protective clothing is provided but you are advised to wear comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. Please also wear trainers or sturdy footwear that you're happy to get a little grubby.

Is there somewhere on-site to buy refreshments?

There is a cafe on-site at the Zombie Boot Camp that serves a variety of hot and cold refreshments. It's reasonably priced. The brains baguette is particularly good value.

Do I need to be fit? Will I get hurt?

The Zombie Boot Camp involves elements of army and military training, so it is recommended that your fitness and hatred of zombies is of a reasonable level. That said, it's designed for everyone so you're not expected to be super fit. The zombies may jump on you, murmur ‘brains’ and hold you down, but not in a manner whereby you will get hurt. There is no fighting or violence. Not on our watch.

Is it suitable for women and children?

It is suitable for women. Not so much for children though. The minimum age to take part is 16 years-old.

Well worth the money and it will certainly leave you wanted more

The zombie boot camp was a brilliant day. The day was divided into to sessions. First up your given basic training by military instructors to 1. Breach and clear room with your rile in your section and 2. Train to advance, attack and withdraw with the use of a riot shield and baton. The second involves 2 missions where you will put your training to use in defeating the zombies. It really is great fun and although physical at times it is well organised and the staff ( who were excellent ) are always on hand. Well worth the money and it will certainly leave you wanted more.

Most amazing thing we've done!

ZOMBIE boot camp is the most AMAZING. Experience I've ever had where the bruises were well worth getting.

Full contact combat with adrenaline-filled and fuelled fun.

My 16yr son loved it and my partner and myself were the oldest taking part we think! We survived and felt age was nothing, we even showed the youngsters ha ha!

It was so good we are going back in summer to do the Asylum experience with friends.

I urge everyone who is of good health who loves action to partake as it will make you grin for a long time.

The instructors are very good and understanding of your individual ability and support and praise you all the way through, pushing you to have more fun and succeed with your mission to take down the ZOMBIES!

Absolutely loved it!

I booked it as a suprise Christmas present for my sons and husband who are all Walking Dead fans. They absolutely loved it - they came home full of it!! They didn't stop talking about it for days and said it was brilliant, better than they expected and that they would love to go again. The photos were also fantastic and on time, you guys really know how to organise and set up!! Great value, couldn't be happier.
