Ship abandoned for 30 years is now a zombie survival attraction

The adrenaline-packed attraction hopes to bring the decrepit ship back from the dead.

UK company ‘Zombie Infection’ has announced its plans to revive a passenger ferry that’s been rotting for more than three decades by infesting it with the undead.

The eerie-looking boat, called the TSS Duke of Lancaster, was built by the same people who made the Titanic. For many years, it served as a ferry but has been left unused since the 1980s.

However, come January 2019, the ship will become a horror attraction wherein visitors will explore its halls for two-and-a-half hours trying to save humanity from the zombie apocalypse.

Docked at Llanerch-y-Mor near Mostyn in Flintshire, North Wales, the turbine steamship has had enthusiasts campaigning for its revival. However, past restoration efforts had fallen through.

Zombie Infection hopes to buck the trend, and finally return the former ocean liner back to her glory days. The company said in a statement:

“The impressive ocean liner has seen its fair share of disappointment to date so it is with great pleasure that after safety and logistic improvements, a lot of paint, love and affection we are now able to bring this amazing venue to our international fan base in 2019 and hopefully beyond.

“We want to assure the local and national population that we will (in partnership with its owners) take good care of her.”
