An airborne virus which reanimates the recently deceased has ravaged Europe, with towns, cities and governments crumbling.
The virus – which leading research scientists believe could be an evolution of rabies – affects anyone, whether they are bitten, scratched or otherwise injured by the undead or not; as the virus is airborne, everyone is infected with the spores of the virus which only become activated after the person dies.
However, the undead remain a threat; the zombies are smart and will do anything to survive, arming themselves to claim more survivors to add to their undead army.
The beautiful Pembrokeshire coastline, with its sparsely placed towns and villages, is one of the last safe places in the UK, relatively untouched by the effects of the virus due to conditions caused by the infamous ‘Pembrokeshire Dangler’ killing off the spores with its inconsistent air pressures and varying temperatures.
Survivors have been flocking to the safe haven of Newgale in an attempt to escape the war of the zombies that is affecting the rest of the UK.
However, cases of reanimation of the deceased are becoming more and more common in this little safe haven, which could spell trouble for the weary groups of survivors.
As the leaders of the Zombie Resistance, you and a group of other Resistance Fighters are needed to protect the men, women and children taking refuge in this part of the county and defend the safe haven from zombie infestation.
Do you have what it takes?
Give one of our friendly booking team members a call on 01437 720959 to find out when our next Zombie Weekend is taking place and to book your place. Alternatively, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Test your survival skills over the course of a weekend against a herd of the walking dead. Go through tactical training as a survivor and undergo a zombie transformation with the help of our special effects makeup team.
It’s up to you as a leader of the Zombie Resistance to gather supplies for your team and hunt for clues to discover a cure, all whilst fighting off the undead in a range of high-adrenaline, high-action scenarios, utilising a variety of different locations.
Our Zombie Weekends are great for any occasion, whether that’s birthday celebrations, Stag and Hen weekends, short breaks away, reunions with old friends or just something a bit different for your weekend off!
If you’re a fan of The Walking Dead, or films like 28 Days Later, World War Z, Dawn of the Dead or even Shaun of the Dead, you’ll definitely love our zombie experience. There’ll be no going the Winchester, having a nice, cold pint and waiting for this all to blow over – as soon as you arrive, your reality will become what you’ve seen on the big screen.
For those who can’t get enough of games such as Call of Duty, Resident Evil or The Last of Us, our highly interactive Zombie Weekend will definitely beat any VR experience, giving you the chance to live the game and play as both survivor and zombie to give you the full, 360° zombie experience.
Nothing brings a team together like fighting off hoards of the undead. Our Zombie Weekends can help improve teamwork, creative thinking, forward planning, leadership and company culture. We can tailor the scenarios around the skills you want your employees to develop. The Zombie Weekend can also form part of a wider employee development programme at Newgale Lodge. Get in touch with us for more information.
Survivors of the Zombie Apocalypse will be welcomed into the safety of Newgale Lodge on Friday Afternoon.
Here, they will be briefed on what is in store for them over the course of the weekend so that they can plan a strategy for their survival.
Following this, they will be treated to a zombie-themed feast to help keep their energy levels high for the undead onslaught that lies ahead.
After breakfast, the group will take part in specific tactical training on survival tactics, techniques and weapons available.
The zombies of the group will then go through their undead transformation with the help of special effects makeup. Meanwhile, the survivors will have to scavenge for essentials.
Following a scavenged lunch, the zombies and survivors will then go to war, navigating rural, low-rise buildings.
The group will then take part in a well-earned feast worthy of survivors.
After breakfast on the final day, zombies and survivors will swap roles, with zombies undergoing their undead transformation whilst survivors scavenge for supplies.
After their scavenged lunch, survivors must then face the zombie onslaught in the woods and undergrowth whilst looking for clues for the cure.
Following their two-night stay and zombie experience at Newgale Lodge, the group will depart.

Our Zombie Weekend is suitable for anyone over the age of 12 who isn’t faint of heart! It’s a fantastic, frightening, fun weekend activity for family and friends. It can also be an energetic activity to aid corporate groups in improving a variety of different skills.
Our Zombie Weekends offer a totally different experience to other zombie events. By spending the weekend on-site, you can completely immerse yourself in the zombie experience – you will be eating, drinking, sleeping and living the ultimate undead adventure.
Our Zombie weekend can be as intensive as you want it to be! You do not need any special abilities to take part – just a very basic level of fitness. You’ll be using your brain, especially when looking for the cure, and will need to be able to think and act fast! If you’re finding any aspect of the weekend difficult, you’re welcome to take it slow or if you find that something is not your cup of tea, you don’t have to take part.
Sort of, but that’s all part of the fun. You won’t need to don any special outfits but as you will take turns being survivors and zombies, to make the experience more real, our special effects makeup team will be on-site to turn you into a terrifying zombie. However, if you want to get more into the zombie spirit and don some zombie-esque clothes, you’re more than welcome!
Yes. Although our games are high-adrenaline, you will be under the supervision of well-trained experts who will be monitoring you during the activities. If you’re finding an aspect too difficult, you’re welcome to sit out the game or just take it slow. Also, for safety and comfort, we use laser technology in our guns instead of paintballs.
You should pack enough clothes and toiletries for two nights’ stay in our bunkhouse accommodation at Newgale Lodge. Comfortable footwear is a must – the ground could be muddy or uneven. We recommend to wrap up warm and definitely avoid wearing your best clothes! All zombie makeup will be supplied by us. We also supply full-board catering and have an on-site bar with a wide selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks available for purchase.
