Resident Evil Revelations leaves Pools of Blood

Resident Evil Revelations Logo
Thanks to Capcom, zombie fans in London can actually swim in a pool of “blood” on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th of May. They’ve filled a Hackney Wick swimming pool with blood-coloured water, floating eyeballs, blood clots and more. Zombie lifeguards will be on duty to keep the public safe. Well, as safe you could expect given that the lifeguards are zombies. The provided brain swimming pool caps should be a useful decoy, so keep yours on at all times.

This is all to celebrate the release of Resident Evil Revelations, coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U & PC on Friday24th May. As a result, the bottom of the pool will be littered with commemorative bottles of T-Virus and its corresponding anti-virus, should any “accidents” occur.

The swimming pool itself is themed as the Queen Zenobia, an abandoned cruise ship that forms much of the setting for Revelations. All normal swimming pool facilities will be available, including goggles for loan but bring your own if you don’t fancy drying off with the blood-spattered towels of past victims.

Fun blood-pool facts:

  • The 16ft by 32ft pool is over one metre deep
  • It would have taken the blood of 11,327 individuals (50,000 gallons) to fill the swimming pool with human blood.
  • The open air pool is located in Jupiter Wharf, open to the public for two days on the 25th & 26th May.
  • The blood red water has been created using a secret mixture of non-staining colorants specifically developed for the installation.
  • The pool is only open to people aged 16+ and those under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Anyone wishing to swim in the Resident Evil Revelations pool will need to grab a free ticket in advance from the Eventbrite listing. Ticket sales go live on Monday 20th May at 9am. Only 100 tickets will be available for each day.
