Thorpe Park Resort is going to extreme lengths to ensure its scare actors are up to the job for its new season, by holding auditions on one of its iconic rollercoasters, 127 feet (38.7 metres) off the ground

The interviews are coming off the back of the resort's announcement of a series of events based around the AMC horror classic series The Walking Dead.

Those wanting to take part must demonstrate their ability to frighten guests in any environment, deal with the screams and hysterics of thrill seekers and remain in-character under all circumstances. You must be able to interact with the general public and become a zombie at a moments notice.

Thorpe Park Resort's Divisional Director, Dominic Jones said, “Thorpe Park Resort is known for offering a thrilling day out, so it’s no surprise that we’re launching The Year of The Walking Dead by giving our scare actor hopefuls auditions at height on one of our rollercoasters. We want our guests to be able to immerse themselves in each unmissable experience that we have to offer throughout the 2018 season, and what better way to do this than to have the best team in place?”

Applicants must be available for the parks re-opening on 23rd March.

The Year of The Walking Dead events that will take place include:

The Walking Dead Living Nightmare Extreme (the live action maze at its most terrifying) available only for May Half Term (25th May – 3rd June)

Summer late night opening until 10pm (Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 26th July – 1st September)

Zombie Hunt – an extreme battle for survival in woodland on the outskirts of THORPE PARK Resort for the six weeks of summer (21st July – 3rd September)

Fright Nights – the hugely popular season returns to THORPE PARK Resort with a The Walking Dead theme (5th October – 31st October)
