Presented by Directors of the Extraordinary and Brisbane Powerhouse

Zombies are coming.

For 10 days only, Brisbane Powerhouse will transform into a paramilitary-protected private research facility, where scientists have been weaponising a contagion that zombifies humans.

One problem – there is a leak in the lab. We’re on the edge of the zombie apocalypse. Containment is your chance to save the world and challenge the ordinary in this 90-minute strategy-based team adventure game.

Containment is a highly immersive, limited season experience that integrates live adventure gaming, immersive theatre, technology and world creation to create high-fidelity entertainment.

Step out of reality and launch into Australia’s most extraordinary zombie adventure.
