Abandoned theme park Camelot to reopen as terrifying new zombie experience

The legendary North West theme park, Camelot, is set to re-open to the public next month with an undead twist.

The medieval-themed Lancashire attraction has been out of use for a decade and is largely derelict.

And now its abandoned rides and empty footpaths are set to be brought back to life with an undead turn.

A new interactive series, Camelot Rises, will see the eerie theme park filled with zombies played by actors who will be accompanied by scene-setting lights and sounds.

The actors will interact with visitors in an experience that promises to be truly gory, with several zones planned for the new attraction.

Ticket-holders will pass through new zones on their way to the drive-in cinema, including a Military Compound, the Valley of the Dead and the Decontamination Station.

Organisers of the park overhaul said: "Something deadly has destroyed the legendary world of Camelot… now overrun by zombies hungry for human flesh.

"As the army struggle to keep control of the area, it's time to see if you can survive this gruesome night of post-apocalyptic horror."

Camelot Rises comes from the same team behind the Park N Party series, who have put on a number of drive-in cinemas in Manchester.

A spokesperson for One Media, which runs the Park N Party events, said: “This is Camelot, but not as you know it. Something deadly has destroyed the legendary world of Camelot, now overrun by zombies hungry for human flesh!

“As the army struggle to keep control of the area, it’s time to see if you can survive this gruesome night of post-apocalyptic horror.

“This is an experience not to be missed. Featuring a fully immersive, interactive zombie experience, delicious food and drink to devour, and some of the greatest (and scariest!) zombie films ever made, missing Camelot Rises would be dead wrong. Buy your tickets now…if you’ve got the stomach for it.”

Films on the schedule will include some zombie-themed classics including the 28 Days later series, Night of the Living Dead, I Am Legend and modern horror A Quiet Place.

Camelot Rises is scheduled to take place between February 3 and March 6.

Urban explorers toured the abandoned park last October and showed the ruined Chorley site which ran seasonally from 1983 to 2012.

The park itself was based on the story of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.
