Thorpe Park Resort has received two nominations for the ScareCON SCAR awards, the annual event which champions and recognises all aspects of the scare industry – from year-round scare attractions to Halloween events.

In the nominations for the 12th annual awards, which were revealed last night by ScareCON, the Resort picked up two nominations in the ‘Best Zombie Experience’ category for Zombie Hunt and The Walking Dead: Living Nightmare.

These latest nominations follow on from successes in previous years which have seen The Walking Dead: Living Nightmare win ‘Best Set, Costume and Make Up’ at the 2018 awards, The Cabin in the Woods win ‘Best Halloween Scare Attraction’ in 2014, three nominations in both 2015 and 2016, and two nominations in 2017.

Sadly, there were no nominations this time around for Chessington World of Adventures Resort following its first ever SCAR Awards win in 2018 in the ‘Best Original Concept’ category for Creepy Caves Unearthed.

Alton Towers Resort also feature in the nominations with three nominations – one for The Alton Towers Dungeon, and two for Project 42.

Now in its twelfth year, the SCAR awards are held annually by ScareCON in association with ScareTOUR (a site dedicated to providing independent reviews of scare attractions all over the world) and Fear FX.  Held at a well-known attraction each year, the 2019 ScareCON event will be held at Alton Towers Resort on 20th-22nd May 2019 and brings together professionals from across the scare industry, including designers, owners, fans and experts.
