If "blood soaked survival horror" isn't your idea of a great vacation, stay away from an empty mall in Reading, U.K. where tourists can experience an interactive zombie attack. Zed Events has created a terrifying zombie experience where anyone can battle zombies for four hours for the fee of just $189.
[More from Mashable: Zombies Invade Google Street View]
First, 15 fighters are equipped with Airsoft guns and trained on zombie combat. Then they are let loose into adrenaline-inducing horror. There are two parts of the battle: the first involves running for your life from droves of zombies and the second involves video-game like scenarios where you carry out a mission. The story unfolds as players battle zombies-- meaning every move could be your last.
"This will not just [be] about shooting zombies, ammunition will be severely limited with only a few opportunities to get more," notes the website. "As a survivor you will need nerves of steel, speed and brain power if you are to fight your way through the zombie horde to safety."

The zombie fight is inspired by movies like Dawn of the Dead, and video games such as Resident Evil.
The 250,000 square foot mall in Reading is about 30 minutes outside of London. Anyone interested in playing this apocalyptic game has until this summer to get in on the zombie action, after which the mall may be demolished. No word on what, if anything, this zombie battle is promoting, but one thing is for sure -- people love being scared by zombies.
The company created a similar concept at an abandoned mansion in Cheshire.

I heard about this a year or so back on an airsoft podcast I listen to. It definitely sounds like fun.
