What do you do?

Zomb’in the Dark is an orientation exercise taking place in complete darkness. The objective is to find, within a given time, as many markers as possible. At the same time, participants must avoid the zombies and try to keep hold of their points by not losing lives.

Zomb’in the Dark takes place at various locations across the country. It came to the Fort de Vancia on 3rd and 4th May 2019, and this June it will be even closer to Lyon centre.

Will You Survive?

The majority of participants (600) are survivors, trying to flee the zombies. You have to hit as many markers as possible, only equipped with a map and a lamp.

However, a select few (60 participants) may feel that they are better suited to the life of the half-dead. If that sounds like you, you can sign up to be a zombie, whose role it is to seek out the survivors.

Each zombie will have one region to protect, and will only run after survivors for a short distance. But remember – no physical contact between zombies and survivors is allowed! Before you depart, you will be disguised in zombie make-up by professional make-up artists – get prepared to release your inner zombie.

The places have all been filled but you can sign up to be put on the waiting list!


It costs 20€ to sign up as a survivor or zombie (who will be made-up as a zombie for free on the day). Join the waiting list!
