This photo from Instagram has surfaced, showing a large clown face prop in position outside one of the tents for THE BIG TOP.

It is now possible to book CONTAINMENT (£10 or £8 with MAP discount), FN Ultimate Fastrack (£90) and Director's Cut Fastrack (£25) on Thorpe's website, however Face it Alone and BTS tours are yet to be added.

As such, further details for CONTAINMENT have also been revealed, with slots available to book every ten minutes from 3pm - 9.50pm, and its description as follows;
NEW for 2015, face your fears and make the ultimate timed escape inside THORPE PARK Resort's newest scare experience CONTAINMENT. In groups of ten, you'll be locked inside of four haunt rooms, inspired by many of the UK's worst nightmares, and tasked with breaking the codes to make your way through to the end... all in hopes of finding the antidote to a spreading infection. Will you and your team surrender to the outbreak or have what it takes to break out of CONTAINMENT?

The Face It Alone experience has been altered slightly for this year.

Instead of choosing which maze you want to do, apparently one of the characters from The Big Top will spin a wheel which will decide your fate.

Nothing has been officially released by Thorpe Park as far as i'm aware but another member on here received an e-mail from them detailing the above.

Is there any more info about containment. When I go on the website it just says book now. I've booked to stay at the thorpe hotel and I'm pretty sure he said he get it in with the price?

If you click through, as if you were going to book it, there is a more detailed description which I posted on the previous page of this topic.

As you say, it is included with overnight stays during Fright Nights dates, and upon arrival you book a time-slot between 10pm and 2am at the hotel reception.

Whilst I have no idea what all the letters are for in this photo from Scruffy Dog, I can see the 'wheel of fortune' which Thorpe are using to select the Face it Alones in the background - you can make out an axe for MBV, a sawn of foot for SAW, the roof of a circus tent for THE BIG TOP, and possibly a cabin for CitW.

Oh thats a great find in that image Lewis. I saw it but didn't notice the wheel. I wonder what the letters are for. It doesn't seem like it would fit at TP, but it could be something on the floor in Containment i guess
