A zombie attraction planned for the rusting hulk of a beached passenger ferry in North Wales has had to be postponed.


Some time ago, InterGame reported on the beached ship, the Duke of Lancaster and the plans an investor had to convert it into the ultimate zombie experience, utilising actors to stalk guests around the gloomy and dank vessel.

The Zombie Infection Company was hoping to start operating this month but a land ownership issue has caused a postponement.

The BBC reports that a road forming part of the nearby Wales Coastal Path would need to provide access for a fire truck, but needs widening and potholes to be filled.

However, Zombie Infection owner Greg Rudman and the adjacent land owners are having trouble locating the owner to do the work.

"It's an obstacle we didn't foresee. It's not a great situation,” Rudman told the BBC.

"But we have been working with the ship's owner for eight years. We're not going to stop after that amount of time and effort."

The ship has been lying in the sand of the Dee Estuary after running aground in 1979. After being towed to Llanerch-y-Mor, near Mostyn, the ship was briefly used as an entertainment venue under the name The Fun Ship but it didn’t last long and has remained empty ever since.
