The deserted Camelot Theme Park is opening its doors to the public once again, but it’s not the kingdom of fun it once was. A plague has swept through the land and left a swarm of zombies in its wake, each one burning with an all-consuming hunger for human flesh. If you hear screams…well let’s just say the rollercoasters have been out of action for a while now. It’s probably the people who couldn’t resist a trip back to the nostalgia-inducing amusement park they once visited as a kid, or maybe there’s something even more sinister going on there. Ever heard of that phrase curiosity killed the cat?…
In a stroke of mad genius, Scare City has dug the beloved Lancashire resort from the ashes and brought life into its overgrown ruins, albeit the flesh-eating kind. The result is the world’s longest outdoor horror attraction, and its doors are open until the middle of November.
This year’s event is set to feature 10 terrifying zones, including four brand-new indoor mazes with hordes of live actors, horrifyingly realistic set design, and more than a few things going ‘bump’ in the night. With zones being announced on social media, attendees are getting a glimpse at what they can expect for the fourth year of Scare City.
Think derelict hospitals, cannibal butchers, eerie cults, and a serial killer’s dumping ground. There are even a few familiar faces making an appearance, including the corrupt cast of The Moregrave Brother’s circus! If you don’t know them already, prepare to get acquainted with a rogue’s gallery of the grim and grotesque.
Fans of zombie flicks and horror-filled fun will be in their element walking through the park – filled with mischievous live actors, fake gore, thunderous sounds and terrifying lights. This is the ultimate fair of scares horror fanatics have been looking for.
All those jump scares and screams might leave you with your own hunger pangs and a dry throat. Luckily, it won’t be brains on the menu, instead, a host of vendors are at hand with delicious food and drink at Swizzel’s Resurrection Zone. So you’ll be able to keep your energy levels up just in case any surprise zombie attacks occur – you may even find out whether you’re more of a fight or flight kind of person. Plus, there will be a fully licensed bar if you’re in need of something a little stronger to calm your nerves.
Scare City plunges you right into the thick of a zombie-infested dystopia though, of course, there’s no risk of you joining the zombie horde at the end of this zombie apocalypse. Make sure to round up your fellow horror fans and grab a ticket to this immersive adventure now, you won’t want to miss out.
The event will kick off on September 29 and run until the middle of November. Tickets to Scare City at Camelot Theme Park in Chorley are priced at £25 per ticket or £35 including fast track and are on sale here.
