Roll up, roll up – the circus is coming to Thorpe Park Resort this October as the full line up of attractions has been revealed for Fright Nights 2015 following a teaser campaign on the Resort’s social media outlets.
2015 will see a brand new scare maze take up residence on Amity Beach as THE BIG TOP Carnival rolls into the Resort. Introducing the Figaro Bros. led by the sinister Ringleader, THE BIG TOP will see guests encounter a range of creepy carnival experiences including, a Fortune Teller’s Wagon, fun house, torture chamber, a mirror maze full of clowns and mime artists, a circus scare room, and the clown’s dressing room all capped off with a final encore of the Carnival Show. Featuring a range of creepy characters from adult babies and clowns, to mime artists and a jack-in-the-box, THE BIG TOP is set to be one of Thorpe Park Resort’s creepiest mazes to date.
Also set to join the line-up of attractions for 2015 will be a new escape room experience, expected to be located behind Depth Charge, where guests will come face to face with some of the nation’s top fears and have to make it out under timed conditions. The Resort’s website is also teasing an all new overnight experience based around the Figaro Bros. and THE BIG TOP carnival. Set to cost £249 for two people, the experience will include two day park tickets, parking and breakfast, plus free entry after the park closes to the new attraction.
Returning to terrify guests for a third year, in collaboration with Lionsgate UK, will be My Bloody Valentine, The Blair Witch Project, The Cabin in the Woods, and Saw, which sees some of the most iconic modern horror films brought to life. For those feeling particularly brave, there will also be the opportunity to ‘Face it Alone’, however exact details for this experience are yet to be confirmed for this year.
Now in its 14th year, the 2015 event will run on 9th-11th October, 17th-18th October, and 23rd October to 1st November.
