An old abandoned ferry is set to be brought back to life ... by Zombies.

The 'Duke of Lancaster' sits in Llanerch-y-Mor near Mostyn in Flintshire.

She started out as a passenger ferry but has been empty since the mid-1980s.

The over-18s attraction boat "awaits only the bravest souls" and launches in January.

Actors dressed as zombies will chase thrill-seekers through the ship in the two-and-a-half hour experience.

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 take good care of her and bring her well and truly back to her glory days.

The Duke of Lancaster was a cruise liner between 1956 and 1979.

It was sold to a Liverpool-based company and towed to Llanerch-y-Mor near Greenfield in August 1979.
