Moonlight Zombies 3 is a charity event taking place at Cuerden Valley Country Park, Preston on 2 nights during 2015. Friday 30th October and Saturday 31st October.
Captured from the aftermath of the 2014 event, these secured zombie grounds are home to test subjects to see if a cure can be found to restore those who have been infected. The Cleanse Initiative is back and you've been selected to see if you can make your way through.
The base is at a country park located on the edge of the city of Preston. As the name may suggest, these zombies only come out at night.

Please take a look before contacting us for a faster answer
What happens during 'Moonlight Zombies 3'?
Moonlight Zombies 3 is a walk through experience set in a country park similar to a ghost walk. A large area of the park is used for the experience. When you enter you will be screened and the objective explained to you. There will be several different types of zombie lining the routes who may make you feel unwelcome. The experience will last around 45 minutes (depending on how fast you walk), and group sizes can range from 6 to 10.
Once you have started the experience you must complete the entire journey. There are no mid-way exits and it will not be possible to walk the route without our zombies trying to scare you. Please take this into consideration when bringing younger guests.
You will travel around a large part of the park where the only light will be from your own torch. Torches are not provided.
How will my tickets be delivered?

Do you allow refunds for poor weather?
The event will only be cancelled in extreme circumstances. The event will run in poor weather. We always advise you dress for cold, outdoor and wet conditions.
What happens if I miss my time slot?
If a time slot is missed, we will do our best to accommodate you however we offer no guarantee that you will be allowed entry. Your time slot runs for 15 minutes from your start time (eg. 6.15 to 6.30).
Why do you need to book online?
Confirming your place ahead of the date that you are visiting means that you will receive an e-ticket. E-tickets speed up the admission process to the event. Also, we need control over the car parking facilities at the event, and therefore we operate a strict timed-entry system to allow for the best possible experience.
Can I buy my ticket at the entrance gate on the night?
No. All of our tickets are sold in advance to control how many people are in the event at any one time. This allows for the best possible experience.
Can I buy tickets at the park for future dates?
No. Further information is available at The Barn Visitor Centre, however at present you are unable to purchase tickets here.
I don't have a PayPal account, how do I book tickets online?
PayPal processes all of our online payments. It's always preferred for you to have a PayPal account - however you do not need one to pay with a credit or debit card.

This event is recommended for those aged 12 and over. However, those 15 or under require adult accompaniment. The accompanying adult must have a separate, valid ticket.
1 adult to every 5 12-15 year olds (this is due to the way groups are split).
How scary is it?
This is a common question which we are unable to answer. The event is located in a real park in the hours of darkness. This alone, without live actors, would be enough for some people to find very scary.
What are the restrictions?
The restrictions are listed above in 'Before Booking Tickets'.
Do you close the attractions in poor weather?
Our event runs in most weather conditions.
Do you sell food and drink at TerrorFest?
This year, for the first time we are looking to have tea and coffee available for purchase however we cannot guarantee this. This will not include any alcohol.
