Re: Scarefest

We 100% need the old-style scare zones to return. Nox Infernus was the only one of the new style scare zones that I thought was brilliant. But i'd quite happily see Zombies! Scare Zone to replace Dark Apoclaypse. Freak Show was terrible. Scary Tales was brilliant and i'd happily see that return. My...

Re: Scarefest

Dark Apocalypse seems to have aqquired some new theming including some of which seems to be from Zombies. Not the van and truck though they were there last year!

Why couldn't they have put it in the scary tale route? :(


That would be much better and a longer route to play with!

Re: Scarefest

If there's anyone who wears costumes to Scarefest, what are you allowed and what are you not allowed to wear (hoods, masks, fake weapons ect). What would be comfortable/uncomfortable and what would be suitable/unsuitable for riding rides, and just in general what would you recomend going as, (I'm p...

Re: Scarefest

I'd rather the old type for Freak Show as it would work better but I don't know if anyone thinks differently?

Re: Scarefest

Today I received inside information from a particular person who is currently in conversation with creative director of scarefest. For 2018, there is a concept being considered which involves chaining off a complete area to create a theatrical experience evolved around the sanctuary; a sequel about...

Yes, they will let you ride without VR, in one case I was even asked if I want to ride it with VR.


I thought one of the staff told me it but wasn't sure as the station was loud

Re: Scarefest

I've never seen the Chessington mazes so I can't comment on those, but a free 4 pumpkin scare maze might be nice. That would settle the debate on the new or old style of scare zones - keep the newer style and have a free and slightly less scary maze to make up for the loss of the qualities the old ...

Re: The Future Of Scarefest

Sorry to double post but they could have a Hex themed hayride or they could theme it to Altonvill or have it themed around a breakout of the Sanctury Asylum or the prison where the Hamble Twins are locked up or maybe have it themed the Scary Tales. There's even some really good paths for it around ...

Re: The Future Of Scarefest

I put a little further up about how much I hate the new style of zone but actually I've been persuaded otherwise. I think if they can add some more theming and actors and possibly a third one then it could work really well. I now like the idea of having them just as a part of the Halloween atmosphe...

Theme Park Guide on Facebook have posted - I've heard through the grapevine that yesterday bags may be have been going into the bins around Derren Brown's Ghost Train. Does this mean we will see it open today or tomorrow? Very exciting stuff, but all I keep thinking about with the sheer amount of b...

Re: If you owned Thorpe Park, what would you do with it?

I'm glad someone made a Thorpe Park version of my Alton Towers topic, believe it or not I never thought about doing so. Thorpe Park needs a new coaster, but if ghost train proves succesfull I have no problem with a indoor ride. Also I can see a water ride replacement.
