It turns out the skeleton guy is Zombie Guy, famous for being in the Lady Gaga Born this way music video. I don't know if he will be in the maze or was just there today

According to Thorpe Park's Facebook page. This is a maze of his own creation and he is " the man behind our new and longest scare maze to date"

Here are fairly good POV's off this years offerings from Theme Park Collective. These contain spoilers.

Saw: Alive

The Cabin In The Woods

CONTAINMENT

BLAIR WITCH

THE BIG TOP

PLATFORM 15

It should be noted that it seemed certain aspects of PLATFORM 15 were not fully working in the POV.

Does anyone know how busy it was on park today? I'm going Sunday, and while I expect it to be busier than your average off-peak Sunday, I'm hopeful I'm beating the half-term rush!

120 at the moment, although it appears that both Saw and Colossus are down, which won't be helping...

The public have decided that Studio 13 will be the next set of roaming characters on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd. Damn you all. I wanted Terry and the freezer crew for my visit.

After visiting this weekend I feel
Sad to say that the event was a bit stale compared to previous events . I'm hoping for a complete overhaul next year

Although I wasn't keen on Experiment 10, they were very good. I'd like to see Studio13 as well, but The Freezer definitely needs an outing!

What would be everyone's opinions if Thorpe Park introduced a fee to enter the mazes?

Personally, I think it's needed. The queues are far too long, and also the maze experience is being diluted by Thorpe Park trying to maximize throughput and get as many people through as possible. However, if they did this I would expect to see the maze quality improve as well, and have more park-wide decorations and roaming entertainment. What do you guys think?
