The 60-minute role playing experience, organised by Wicked Experiences and Events gave players unlimited access to The Mall Blackburn, including the carpark, loading bays and service corridors while solving puzzles along the way.

During the event, Managing Director of Wicker Experiences, Ashley Gamon, said: “This is probably the closest thing and most realistic thing to Dawn of the Dead! you will ever experience.”

He added: “They can expect a real immersive realistic experience, as they get to use all areas of the shopping centre."

The events which took place on Friday September 28 and Saturday 29 are also set to scare players next weekend on Friday October 5 and Saturday October 6.
