The Zombie Nightmare Experience
Zombie Nightmare is an award winning, immersive 60 minute experience set in a real shopping centre (after hours!). You and your team will navigate all available areas of the shopping centre including* loading bays, back of house service corridors, car parks and the main precinct itself, trying to save the world and end the apocalypse!
This is a large scale scare attraction experience involving escape room style clues, immersive moments of deep suspense, theatrical interactions and ultimately - running for your life!
The Zombie Nightmare Story
With the world on it's knee's and a few safe zones remaining, a brave team of survivors have been called in to try and find out what went wrong. Was the cure a lie? Did it really exist? Is there any hope left?
The military forces are now completely defeated and civilisation is left in ruins. In a post-apocalyptic world, the only hope of survival is... you!
Can you work together to find the truth, escape the undead and survive?
Statement by Wicked Experiences
In 2018 Zombie Nightmare was created by Wicked Experiences and the event was very popular at every location it toured to. The event was a great success and was soon in huge demand throughout the UK.
In 2020, like many companies in the events and theatre industry, we were hit hard by the implications of COVID-19 resulting in event cancellations due to government restrictions.
Since then, our team have been working hard behind the scenes to relaunch Zombie Nightmare this Halloween at The Brunel, Swindon.
Unfortunately, despite heavy marketing, the event sales have not been at the levels we have expected and sadly we are now in the position of having to cancel Zombie Nightmare at The Brunel, Swindon with Wicked Experiences being another company sadly falling victim to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We will be providing all customers a full refund within 14 days which will be paid back onto the card used for the purchase of the tickets.
We really do apologise for the disruption of your Halloween plans and for any inconvenience caused by this.
We wish everyone one of our customers all the best for the future.

With regards to footwear we advise that you wear shoes such as trainers. High heels, open toed shoes and flip flops are not allowed.
Where can I park?
Zombie Nightmare uses all aspects of Shopping Centres including car parks. As a result of this, parking at some Shopping Centres has been suspended. Car parking is available nearby at all locations but please be aware that it may be a short walk from the venue. Details of parking and public transport specific to your chosen venue will be supplied prior to the event.

Guests who are under the influence will be advised to return to the pub and wait for this all to blow over. Once you have completed the experience and hopefully found the cure by all means go out and celebrate saving the world but not before.
How many people are there in a group?
Groups consist of a maximum of 12 people.
Do I need a full team of 12 people to book?
No, but please be aware that your group may contain some people that you don’t know as we try to fill up each time slot.
Do you do discounts for groups?
We are sometimes able to provide discounts for groups! Please call a member of the team on 0333 772 9395.
How does it all work?
On arrival you will be greeted by one of the Zombie Nightmare events team who will give you a briefing document to read and sign. At your time slot your entire group will enter the experience. You will be accompanied by our guides during the experience who will take you deep into the Zombie Nightmare. You will have 60 minutes (approx.) to find, escape and survive!
How do you kill the zombies?
You cannot kill the zombies. They are already dead.
Do we use weapons?
Although we fully accept that shooting a zombie in the head is exhilarating and a lot of fun, we do not use any weapons in our experience. This is because Zombie Nightmare is all about realism and about creating a truly immersive experience. If the Zombie apocalypse was to actually happen in the UK guns would be extremely hard to find. Also whether it is lasers, paintball or airsoft, once you shoot the zombie the result of this draws your attention to the fact that it is not real which is the last thing that we want.
Do the Zombies touch you?
This is a non-contact event, the Zombies will not touch you and likewise you must not touch them.
Can I bring my own torch and video equipment?
No, if any torches or additional lighting is required it will be provided for you. This includes the light on your mobile phone. Using this will ruin the experience not only for you but also for the rest of the group.
Taking pictures or videos during the experience is strictly forbidden. Doing this will ruin the experience for those yet to do it. We cannot risk spoilers. At the end of the experience there will be an opportunity to have pictures taken with your group.
I have a question that isn't asked here?
If you have any questions or concerns that we have not been able to answer here please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond as soon as possible.
How much is Zombie Nightmare?
The Zombie Nightmare ticket price is £45 per person (plus £2.46 booking fee per ticket)
