Zombie Bootcamp Experience
BEST DAY OF MY LIFE
OK so I took up the offer from a friend to go and kill zombies for the day, I was sceptical at first but hey sounded better than my usual routine. We arrived at the complex and were greeted by a number of people dressed in military gear. Thats when it all sank in the cleverly disgused film crew documenting every step of the event. We went through the experience and I was completly blown away by the equipment and resources that the company had on site, I believe they had more equipment than my two local police stations!!!! NO Joke!!! these guys actually have all the bearings of real soldiers and one of them even spoke to us about his tour in afghan... Anyways back to the event.. at the end of mission two we were debriefed and then allowed off site licking our wounds.... I was a bit worried about ordering a DVD after reading the other comments however, I went for it anyways the company LMG provided me with a tracking number that I could use after 21 days to track my DVD... however it came within 7 days.. this was really surpising as the man had told me to expect later.. anyways I thought the DVD Was a great way to rememember the event and at £20.00 I can't really complain.. especially when i shot the camera man in the private parts LOLL ENJOY YOURSELF

OMG this is such a great experience
This is going to be a long review as there is just so much to this experience which all of us would reccomend to anyone who loves an adrenaline rush, and who needs to get out some pent up anger lol. I am a 38 year old female who went along with my partner also 38, my sister and her partner both 20, another sister aged 16, and my bothers aged 39,36,22. When we arrived we were taken to get kitted out in full army/riot gear and then divided into teams with other people on this experience ( you can ask to be put in groups with the people you came with), We were then checked over to see if we had been infected by the zombie virus which was fun, as half of us had been up since 4 that morning so who knew the difference, Then we were given lessons in how to use sheilds and battons and the instructer/leader was very professional with his shouting of commands and he really got us all hiped up.
You then get taken off in a beaten up van with your team to go to learn how to use paintball guns, Finally after a short break (where you get to buy drinks/choc bars ect from a small tuck shop its time....Yes time ...the time has arrived where you are again wisked away in the van to another area of the complex where you are confrounted by Zombies, this is the fun part there are people/battons/sheild and other objects such as tyres being thrown about everywhere, the zombies are coming at you and dragging you to the floor while your having to try to survive and not be captured, Your team mates are trying to beat the zombies off you.,whilst them thereselves are being attatcked, all this time your leader is shouting commands at you. Once you feel all the zombies are dead your back in the van for another task. This ones held in a dark building and again zombies are coming at you from everywhere and your having to shoot them or beat them with the battons. We failed in our task as we left a team mate behind (my 39 year old brother) who was terrarised by zombies and had to be rescued by another team once we had safely got away in the van., We did finally got him back at the end of the day much to our disapointment.
Whilst you are on this experience you are followed around by a camera crew and a tv reporter who captures all the action and even interviews some of you about the invasion of zombies in your home town which really adds to the frill of the experience. This is not for the weak as we did all end up with bruises and a few cuts afterwards.
A bit of advice is to wear light clothing for this day as your army/riot gear is very thick and heavy ,with the amount of action happening you are going to sweat and its very uncomfortable if you have jeans/jumpers ect on underneath, Also if you do go to the same camp as us in Worchestershire note you will arrive at some big iron gates which are closed and un-manned. Take the Zombie camps phone number with you and call when you arrive and someone will let you in as we do know of a few people turning up and leaving as they thought they were in the wrong place.
Defenatly a day to remember, all 8 of us purchased the dvd of the day and had some fab pictures done of us with a zombie, (which I havent received yet so I can't up load), I have uploaded a pic of myself and sister in our army/riot gear so at least if the world is every over run with Zombies you know who to look out for cos we kick zombie butt.

At first I had a nightmare booking this event, there were two of us and trying to co-ordinate days and get a straight answer on when available dates were was not easy.
However finally after much persistance we managed to get a date booked and i'm sad to say went expecting it to be a disapointment because of the booking difficulties.
However I really can not fault the activity its self, the team building and profesionalism of the team on the day was fantastic. Its a physical day and you need to try and keep hydrated and keep your energy up.
In our case we were trained then once happy that we would be able to survive in close quaters combat and then use of the paintball gun we had a short break before we could go on actual missions which was great fun, and very hectic.
I will note that I ordered a DVD from zombiecam and after the payment went through I heard nothing from them, then the website disapeared. Fortunatly I paid via paypal and got my money back but I would recommend anyone avoid zombiecam based on my experience.

Great but I never received the DVD I ordered!
I went on this and had a great time, gets the adrenaline pumping, lots of physical action and a good allround laugh, I would recommend the experience. I have written this mainly to warn people about ordering the DVD of the day as I haven't received it and the last email I sent didn't get a response, I am still chasing them!. By all means go and have a great time but just beware!
