What to do on the day….!

‘Scarefest: Extreme Zombieland’ is aimed at families with children and young people 8+. There are scary parts to the walk and jump scares (actors who will jump out at you at a safe distance). You are allowed to bring younger children if you think they’ll be ok. You know whether your child would be upset or not. It is your parental judgement. No refunds will be given. YOU MAY GET WET …. probably will!

There is a large car park at the pit.

This event is a yearly sell out. However due to the current pandemic we are being extremely strict on the amount of people in the venue at one time. Umbrella Arts Volunteers at the gate will direct you throughout your visit. Look out for the people in hi-viz jackets.
By purchasing a ticket you are agreeing to our Participant Consent Waiver.

It will take approximately 10-15 minutes to go through ‘Scarefest: Extreme Zombieland’ but it will be well worth the wait

Due to restrictions there will be less tickets available to allow time between entry times. Groups will be a maximum of 6 (Children and adult), under no circumstances will more than 6 be allowed to enter the scarefest walk together, unless in a larger family group or support bubble. If you need to purchase extra tickets due to this please email ❤️😱😂🎃👻👽

’Extreme Zombieland’ will be open at promptly 6pm. Sunset is at 17:53 and will be completely dark from around 18:30. A torch is handy to have whilst walking around the event and the outside areas.

Do you have a visitor in your party who has sensory needs, a wheelchair user, has disabilities who finds it difficult to queue?
The walk through the scarefest is mainly accessible however there are parts of the walk that are inaccessible due to stairs or mud. Please email us to discuss our alternative options.
If you have any further questions please email

Once you have entered the gates. . Please follow our volunteer directions. Last ticket entry is at 8pm prompt. NO ONE will be allowed in after this time.

Every single person helping out at the Scarefest is a volunteer. We have over 80 volunteers for this event and no one is getting paid to be there. Please be respectful and kind to them. We could not do this without them. 😊❤️

Anti social behaviour will not be tolerated and you will be asked to leave the event and not return, whether you have paid or not.

It is therefore that we are asking all adults to wear a mask whilst in the containment pod and whist booking in, we also encourage adults and children 11+ to wear masks during the walk however, as it is outside, you may remove it upon entering the first curtain. Our volunteers WILL maintain a safe distance and we ask that you do the same. DO NOT come if you have any of the published Covid symptoms

– Anosmia – any change in taste or smell
– A persistent cough
– A temperature of 37.9 or above

Hand sanitizer will be provided at the booking table.

We will not be allowing two families who are not within a support bubble to go through together. This will be putting our event and our volunteers at risk. We do not want to have to turn people away so please be respectful of this rule, it is not our rule it is currently the law.
