Platform 15 continues to have work done to the area. All the rails have been removed from what can be seen from Old Town, but other than that there nothing else to report.

Not liking the hint towards sea creature to be honest, but don't fully understand what it has to do with the current Fright Nights line up.

It may be that what seems to be a sea creature could turn out to be one of the roaming characters that we know are going to be wandering around the park. It wouldn't surprise me to see a couple of new characters alongside the characters from past mazes we know will be featured.

As we know that there will be characters from past mazes roaming the park, it seems likely that it may be a character from The Curse. Thorpe's snapchat has also posted photos of a Harry Warden from My Bloody Valentine looking character.

Are they likely to be running the same manically busy limited Fright night openings? Im sure it used to be on for longer with more nights. We went last year and the park was at capacity.
Is there normally an annual pass night? Is it quieter? Maybe that's the answer!

Its usually the Thursday of the first weekend of Fright Nights, so its more than likely, but not confirmed, that it will be 6th October

It will be interesting to see if or what the park do for an Annual Pass Preview this year. As Dom said, usually it's the Thursday before the first evening and is combined with the media preview. However, this year the park is closed on that Thursday so I'm not sure if they will open just for a Fright Nights preview for Annual Pass holders. It will certainly be interesting to see what they do this year.

I believe it will be as per previous years as the job description for Fright Nights actors lists the following rehearsal dates; Friday 23rd September, Monday 26th September – Friday 30th September & Monday 3rd October – Thursday 6th October.

Image Metre high stacks of concrete bricks have arrived, along with MBV's ramp. I doubt this hints a return, however it's interesting..

MBV isn't in the line up this year so I'd imagine they have a new use for it :/ I imagine this stack of concrete bricks are for use in either Blair witch or platform 15 I'd imagine the latter

At the moment it is to early to say, but as TheSmilerMan says it certainly isn't for MBV so it will have a new use.

The Big Top is moving this year, so it could be for that.

I must say that is one colourful marquee. Big Top is going to certainly be interesting to experience this year with what I assume will be a smaller footprint to last year, given its new location. Hopefully this and any other works, if any, they do to the maze will make it better than last year.

It looks like the Annual Pass event will be held on Monday 10th October from 5pm - 10pm with booking available soon.
Celebrate 15 years of FRIGHT NIGHTS with your favourite roaming characters from the best mazes of the last years. Live action horror mazes return alongside thrilling rides in the dark including THE SWARM, SAW – The Ride and Stealth.

Brave the live action horror mazes, where Lionsgate’s most terrifying horror films come to life. Iconic scenes from Cabin In the Woods and SAW along with THE BIG TOP come back for another year of screams.

NEW FOR 2016, take your turn to walk the Island’s deserted railroad, in the newest live action scare maze to join the FRIGHT NIGHTS line-up, PLATFORM 15.

New advertisements around the park state that people on Facebook will decide which characters will return as roaming actors in 2016!

I'm at the park on Friday so will try and get some updates on how the construction is going. I'm kind of excited for this years Fright Nights. It will be very interesting to see what's changed in the returning mazes and what Platform 15 has in store for people.
