Fright Night comes to Leeds as Zombie Experience announced!
• An unforgettable new scare attraction ‘The Black Death: Zombie experience’ launches exclusively at the Merrion Centre in October
• The 5-night event will be the first shopping centre experience of its kind in Leeds
• Live (and infected!) actors and industry leading special effects will plunge audiences
into their very own Zombie blockbuster right in the heart of Leeds city centre
Following the success of Professor Humboldt’s Chamber of Time this Summer, the Merrion Centre have partnered once again with Bi-Frost Entertainment to unveil Leeds first shopping centre scare attraction- The Black Death: Zombie experience!
The 5-night zombie scare will run between Saturday 28th September to Thursday 31st October and is to be held after hours in the Merrion Centre’s 1 million sq.ft shopping mall.
Whilst The Black Death: Zombie Experience is designed for ages 18+ only, guests of ages 14+ will be permitted entry when accompanied by an adult at their discretion. The 60 minute immersive experience will see groups of up to 20 explore, sneak and scream their way through zombie hordes, navigate puzzles and ultimately survive the ‘Black Death infected’; plunging visitors into their very own zombie blockbuster with live actors, sets and industry leading special effects. The narrative of the experience is a closely guarded secret but will be an exciting new take on the zombie genre and promises to be an immersive event like no other.
Liam Turford, Operations Director, Bifrost Entertainment said: “Where better to hold up during an apocalypse but a shopping centre?! Following a successful summer of family fun at the ‘Chamber of Time’ attraction, we’re now thrilled to continue our partnership with the Merrion Centre and create a more adult immersive Zombie experience. We’re well on the way to recruiting our 20+ live (and undead!) actor line up and promise to deliver an intense heart pounding and adrenaline filled experience for anyone who dare enters!”
James Broughton, Head of Marketing & PR for Town Centre Securities (TCS), owners of the Merrion Centre said: “We’re extremely excited to be bringing another ‘one of a kind attraction’ to the Merrion Centre with the Bi-Frost team; the Chamber of Time has been hugely successful throughout the summer and The Black Death: Zombie Experience promises to bring another unforgettable immersive experience to the city.
We can’t wait to see a post- apocalyptic zombie land in the heart of Leeds Arena Quarter – it’s guaranteed to be a scream this Halloween!”
