The year is 1940, the Battle of Britain rages on in the skies over Great Britain and the sound of air raid sirens ring throughout London; but there are much darker and more dangerous happenings occurring deep below the streets, in the maze of tunnels beneath Waterloo.
Thanks to Wish.co.uk venture back in time to WWII and take part in the ultimate immersive horror experience, complete with Nazi zombies and mad scientists alike. You and your party of fellow characters have had the bright idea of escaping the bombing overhead in favour of the underground.
Feeling safe and secure, far away from the war and its ever increasing rain of explosions, you make your way through the labyrinth of tunnels, unaware that a far greater evil is (quite literally) rising up around you.
The experiments of a crazy scientist (what other type of scientist is there, really?) have resulted in the reanimation of dead Nazi soldiers. Unfortunately for him (and you, as it happens), some of them have managed to escape and are reeking all kinds of undead, brain-eating, havoc in the warrens in which you have sought safety.

On the day…
Once have travelled back in time (a Delorean should just about do it, or failing that, any form of transport really) and arrived at our location, you will be introduced to a multitude of war-time characters, all seemingly there to assist you on your journey, but beware, some of your new ‘friends’ may not be what they seem…
Unlike our other Zombie experience days, Zombie Blitz 1940 is not your everyday shoot’em up. The object of this visceral and truly terrifying affair is more about escape and survival than it is ‘hunt’em down and kill’em all’, so to speak.
As you make your way through the experience, you will uncover the dark and evil secrets of an underground experimental laboratory and the truly catastrophic impact raising the dead can have.
