Thorpe Park Fright Night 2018 review: we test if it lives up to previous years

It’s that time again where Thorpe Park is transformed into a haunted playground for visitors looking for thrills during the spookiest time of the year.

For nearly two decades horror fans have arrived at the park with the promise of having the pants scared off of them and this year promises to be the biggest one yet with more frightening experiences on offer.

Fright Night 2018 has increased the number of haunted mazes around the park, including; The Walking Dead: Do or Die, Vulcan Peak, Deep Creek Woods and Blair Witch, all of which include live performances from actors who give it their all to make you feel truly terrified.

Visitors can expect a sensory experience in Vulcan Peak as they must navigate through the maze shrouded in complete darkness and an updated take on the Blair Witch Project has guests roaming through the park’s wooded areas trying to avoid the gaze of the eponymous witch herself.

Get ready for zombie themed live action scare mazes

Some of Fright Night’s previous mazes are also making a return such as SAW: Alive where visitors must make their way through one of Jigsaw’s traps as well as another Walking Dead themed experience, Living Nightmare.

But it’s not just the mazes where you can expect to experience a few jumps as zombies and other unsettling characters can be found roaming the park grounds.

Don’t be surprised to hear a few screams as guests are sneaked up on by crazy killer clowns and other bloodied shrieking mummers as the sun sets and the lights go down across the park.

Thorpe Park’s Fright Nights return for 2018

All other attractions are still open to visitors late into the night which can make for a good excuse to find your thrills in more traditional ways on some of their well known roller coasters such as Stealth and Nemesis Inferno. Especially if the scares are too much for the faint-hearted.

If you’re looking for a fun Halloween experience with family and friends (provided they are 13 or over) then Thorpe Park is the place to go this October.

Tickets are available for FRIGHT NIGHTS from £33pp online between the 5th October 2018 until the 31st October for select dates.
