Someone mentioned a discount price for pass holders. Is this confirmed and is it by pre booking only or on the day?

You're about a month late.

Anyone else know if the original scarefest app from last year is going to be updated for this year or was it just a last year one off app?

Was at Towers today and they stupidly left all of the entrance/exit gates to Zombies scare zone open all morning so grabbed a few shots. From what it looked like it was a few large prop pumpkins for franklin's freaky fun zone and a few bits of light theming for zombies.Image

Also later on in the day we happened to walk past the site for the Carnival of Screams when the gates were open so they could move barriers, here's a piccy :-)  Image

I noticed a lot of the lighting for SF has gone up too including LED stage lights under the Apex's of the roofs on towers street and other places such as on top of the ripsaw op cabin where 2 floodlighted have been covered with green translucent plastic.

Where is the Scare Zone and CoS this year? and does the Dark Forest have green papered flood lights as well?
I was going to have a pic of Hobs Pit but I forgot how to make pics show up :(

Zombies scare zone is located to the left of the entrance to Dark Forest and Carnival of screams is in goalstriker and the area behind it, there's a gate opposite the hospitality sweet where the entrance is. I didn't really notice any in Dark Forest however there still is 3 weeks until scarefest. The only things I noticed in DF was the chains of caged light bulbs for construction around the top of the food and games stalls.

Pretty sure those lights have been up on Towers Street all this year, and so have the gelled lights on Ripsaw's ops cabin

hey guys, is it me but does £40 unlimited access to mazes seem a bit steep? I love TOTT but refuse to pay that amount as I'm going for 3 days over the period. I'm gutted they now charge to enter this maze as i used to go on it time and time again, I'm hoping the price may be reduced or they release codes etc through twitter like they did last year

Honestly? No.

Think about it. Scarefest is more about the scare mazes and for AP members the combo ticket is £8.
If you were to save money in one day you would be needing to visit the paid mazes 5 times each.

To me that's pretty easy going in one day. But the pass is for the entire event.
So if you went 3 times (like me) chances are you would save a bit of money. Not to mention fastrack for CoS.

I think it is well worth the money and most people who will buy it will save money easily.

It's steep if you visit on three occasions, but to any seasoned Scarefest visitor [I know people who visit on at least seven occasions] then it's an absolute bargain. I'll be investing in one this year, albeit not quite visiting ten times :P

It's all depends how you use it. I know on my 3/4 occasions I will be focussing on mazes. therefore more than likely save a bit of cash.

Where as some might go to scarefest and only visit the mazes one or two times.

I can't wait for when they put up the Scarefest pumpkin sign at the entrance because you know Scarefest has started when that bad boy goes up! Xx

Hey so I'm going to fright night at Thorpe park this year but I've never been to scarefest. Wondering if anyone has been to both and knows which one is better?
