Hex live could be a full working maze if the park put the time and money into it! Still its great to see it going live again!

I always go the Wednesday night of the first week with a few peeps - park is always dead.

Last year, TOTT walk on.

Did you like it last year? I loved it.

Am I right that staff did it? If so i couldn't tell it was staff which was good. I think its a great addition to Scarefest. Shame it couldn't be over the full 2 weeks or last week of Scarefest during half term. so everyone could see it.

The one thing I love is that they actually get in your faces and they are in the room with you and you don't know whats going to happen next. The scary thing is you can't walk faster like a maze. Thats it; You locked in the room and you just have to wait until the show runs and the door oprn to let you into the next part.

It's a really good idea and hope its as good as last year. I was worried it wasn't going ahead but after solid confirmation today I feel happy to be returning on Halloween. :)


Well done AT.

Entrance is the same place as last year, the towers arch on the passage way leading from the lake to Hex and Dark Forest. 11.30am should be fine to be honest, we all joined at that time on Sat and was one of the 4th groups in, including one fast track group ;]

Went yesterday for the full day. was pretty good, I've planning to write up about ti in the review section so forgive my vagueness here :hsmile: I enjoyed it. Longest we queued for anything all day was 15 minutes. Got round the park twice (would have been three but we hit the mazes earlier than normal due to dodgy train times to get home). The only let down was that Thirteen had a techincal fault and was shut. Don't know how long for but it was closed when we went back to it at around 6:15pm and we waiting until around 7pm, the staff were telling us it wasn't looking good. Shame.
~ Good try but not this time ~

Oh, they do! It's more noticeable on Halloween itself, but you always see a few in fancy dress hanging about. This year we're going on Sunday in our fancy costumes!

Me and a friend will be in costume too next Sunday, even if any of us did look silly, who cares? It's only getting into the spirit of Halloween and having *gulp* fun. :P
