What is CONTAINMENT, will it be simililar to Room 13 at the AT Hotel.

I have detailed this on the previous page of this topic, as well as linking back to it a few posts above. However a new teaser video has been released today.

Please do read back through topics at least a bit to ensure that you're not just asking questions which have already been answered or discussion which has been had.

Idk why, but I get a super eerie vibe from this. Should be very interesting indeed.

Thorpe Park have posted a colour image of the 'Wheel of Misfortune' which will be used to select the maze for their Face it Alone option on Instagram. For SAW, the severed foot has been replaced by a simple spiral. My Bloody Valentine is represented by an axe, Cabin in the Woods by a log cabin, and THE BIG TOP by a circus tent.

Start your visit and discover what your future holds at the ancient fortune teller where the tarot cards will reveal your fate as you enter this circus like no other - this is where your journey begins. As you enter the hall of mirrors keep your eyes open but don’t look too closely… there may be others watching. Search quickly to find your way out but beware, the worst is yet to come.

Journey through the carnival’s funhouse, once a place of laughter, now a haunting monument to the twisted revenge of The Figaro Bros. Become a part of their twisted game to see if you can avoid the same fate as those who have come before you.

To make your ultimate escape, walk along old carnival grounds as you approach THE BIG TOP – the main circus tent where The Figaro Bros. dressing room lies. Complete with a life sized Jack in the Box; it is here where you’ll experience your final encore.

Will you escape the Carnival Like No Other?


A bit more detail about The Big Top on the Thorpe Park website.

Which Fright Nights maze gets the biggest queue / has the worst throughput. Obviously we can't say for the big top yet but otherwise?

I've not actually done any of the mazes at thorpe, but i've seen cabin in the woods at 2 and a half hours so they do get some pretty big queues.

Could anyone tell me when the best period is to do the mazes for minimising the queue. I imagine the day time is. I've never done fright nights before so if someone could provide some info for me. Firstly. What's the average wait time in the day versus the night? Secondly are they worth doing during the day or should we wait till night? Or is there some eg saw which aren't affected by the time of day? Really want to do all the mazes this visit however we do want to maximise the amount of time we have riding the rides in the dark. Thanks in advance for any info provided. P.S as a reminder we are going on Friday 16th if this makes a difference to wait times

Blair Witch Project 'maze' doesn't open until 7pm and that usually gets quite a queue before it even opens. The other mazes are also busy from the moment they open. Its such a hard thing to predict when the mazes will be quiet as chances are they won't be. Reserve and Ride will also be running during Fright Nights, but i don't think it is known as to if it will be the mazes or the coasters that will be on it. At the moment the Thorpe Park website is currently saying that it will be the coasters, but that could change. As for the mazes, your generally looking at 1+ hour(s) for them.

Whilst at the park I was looking at the mazes being set up and being ready for Fright Nights. Was looking at Containment construction and advertising and thought it might possibly point towards what is gonna be in store. I shall get pictures tomorrow and upload them when I can for you all

Unfortunately i wasn't able to get that many decent pictures due to my camera quality. But after being around the park and seeing the boards and advertising videos. I think i might have some ideas on what the new maze is going to be. (Sorry if this has already been announced or shown)

On some of the videos like the one just recently posted. You can see people trapped in cages looking infected. So maybe like the name "containment" its going to be a horror attraction seeing how long you can last inside. Also on the advertising board nearby for Containment. IT states it is a new timed scare attraction. Maybe meaning surviving a certain amount of time inside the container before entering.

On the building for the attraction there was a 2 light system ( one red and one green) with a buzzer i'm guessing to open the door. Also at the time, the queue board was outside waiting to be put up but again i couldn't take a decent image.

Besides the new maze, Cabin maze is by X again, Blair witch is in the rocky express area and the big top is on the beach. My bloody valentine is by where rush in the very corner right by the Crust shop, Honestly it looks very confined and out of the way there and i can imagine that area will be very busy.

This is all i can say. Hope this helps give an insight of the progress.

Containment lasts for 20 minutes roughly, so expect 5 minutes in each room on average.

I'm not sure if anyone here would know, but I just wanted to check that with a disabled access pass at Thorpe Park you also get a fright night maze pass which allows you to use each maze once with it. That was how they did it last year and it worked really well- I assume they're doing the same thing this year? I couldn't see anything on the website but last year I only found out on the day when they gave me the maze pass.

Do we happen to know yet if the RnR will be on the mazes or the coasters?
