28 Days Later, Insidious, and The Ring are just some of the chilling films showing at the North West’s newest immersive drive-in cinema.
Northern kids of the 80s, 90s, and 00s will get the chance to revisit their youth and return to the legendary medieval-themed Camelot Theme Park in Chorley, which sadly closed for good back in 2012 and has been largely abandoned and derelict ever since.
This is an experience like no other though.
Hosted by Park N Party – the team also behind sell-out seasonal drive-in events SecretCity, ScareCity, and ChristmasCity – visitors in up to 300 cars get to park up and watch a series of horror films across 12 weeks at ‘Camelot Rises’, but only after they have survived a terrifying one-mile journey through what has been described as a “zombie-infested wasteland”.
Visitors will get to experience all the “sensations” that put them right in the middle of an apocalyptic event, as live actors and scene-setting lights and sounds will interact with people in a truly gory experience.
Think sirens, smoke, mangled bodies, and hoardes of the living dead coming for you.
If you’re brave enough to enter, then you’ll need to pass a military checkpoint as the army battle to keep control of the park, try to avoid the hordes of the undead searching for their next meal, and if you make it to what is known as the safe zone, then you’ll get to watch horror films on four of the UK’s biggest outdoor screens.
There’s also a fully licensed bar and street food vendors on site.
Camelot Rises has currently taken over the Camelot Theme Park site in Charnock Richard, and will be running right through until 27 March 2022, with tickets priced at £50 per vehicle.
