Seasonal scare mazes?

I took my younger brother to Thorpe Park scare maze and we really enjoyed asylum two years ago. I notice on the scaretour website that there are actually LOADS of popup seasonal scare mazes throughout the UK in October and I wondered which ones were worth visiting and if the independent ones were as good as asylum at Thorpe?

I was pretty sceptical of asylum before I went into it, having never been to a scare maze before and knowing that face paint didn't scare me but I was surprised at the level of tension that was created throughout. I am interested in finding another similar independent scare maze as long as its done with conviction. I use asylum at Thorpe park as a bench mark. Any suggestions?

This year I'm trying Cursed, which is only a short drive from me. It consists of 7 mazes and 2 scare zones all in one continuous flow. The reviews seem decent and the price is only £14 per person.

I'll let you know how I get on :)

Tulleys Farm near me is also really good and both times I've been, they've had some great mazes like The Cellar and Haunted Hayride.

Tulleys looks good. Are they to the same standard as theme park haunts?

Yes, I would say so. They're as well themed as ones you'd find at Thorpe or Alton Towers :)

Great, Tulleys it is then.

Now I just need to decide if a 3 hr zombie shopping mall haunt is worth the £80

There is also a scare maze in Staffordshire which utilizes a Maize Maze... see what they did there. I've been to this one and its certainly entertaining! A couple of good scares & set pieces and there is a tractor trailer ride included with admission.

However I do no recommend the Dudley Canal Halloween event; this year called "Ghost Hunt". I went a couple of years back it it was not scary at all. :no:

I've not been myself as it's not my kind of thing, but Farmageddon has a fantastic reputation, tickets sell out every year.

Scaresville is a good laugh and has been growing for many many years!

It is all spread out on a Tudor estate and you go through many different areas including stables, out buildings, woods, fields, lakes and more! It does get very busy though! Been every year apart from the first and each time it is changed with a few favorites kept!
