Thorpe Park have announced the dates of their Apocalypse Weekends – an event that we can see somehow ties into The Walking Dead. We’re not sure how substantial this’ll be as it sounds like a simple scavenger hunt but it might be a fun thing to coincide with Living Nightmare Extreme’s run at the end of May. That’s what we’re planning to do anyway! Apocalypse Weekends are:
As for Living Nightmare Extreme, we are super hyped for that as the non-extreme iteration was by far the best part of last year’s Fright Nights and rivaled The Walking Dead houses that we’ve been through at Halloween Horror Nights in both Hollywood and Orlando! Check out our full review of that event here. We’re not entirely sure how it’ll differ to the version we experienced in October but we’ll soon find out! We’ll be along at the end of May for these two things as well as finally trying out The Walking Dead: The Ride!
Thorpe’s announcement follows and further info on The Year of The Walking Dead can be found here.
Apocalypse Weekends are nigh and we’re here to give you the lowdown on how you can join the crusade and help us in our vital quest to get supplies to the Safe Zone.
We need you to collect provisions as supplies are running low at the THORPE PARK Safe Zone, so we’re setting you an assignment of utmost importance. The survivors at the Safe Zone are in peril dealing with the onslaught of walkers at The Walking Dead: The Ride and they need your help!
Marked out on your map will be five crucial locations where there will be supplies waiting for you to scan and collect using our THORPE PARK Resort App. You’ll then need to make your way to the Safe Zone to check in to the final stop of the campaign and claim your reward!
In exchange for the supplies Dylan and the survivors will grant you a free return trip to the Island Like No Other (in September) PLUS if you’re an Annual or Local Passholder you also get an exclusive limited edition Apocalypse Weekends pop badge to display with pride to show the world that you’ve helped defeat the walkers and replenish the Safe Zone.
Grab your map and brace yourselves as you join the campaign to rid the Island of its walker infestation and protect the Safe Zone at all costs.
Mission: Survive is underway. Your briefing is simple: scour the Island for supplies, deliver them to the Safe Zone and prevent the possibility of an all-out walker outbreak Successfully execute your assignment and defend the Safe Zone. Good luck survivors!
Apocalypse Weekends are every weekend from 12th May til the 24th June ONLY. Don’t miss out!
Meet you at the Safe Zone…”
