Full details have been revealed by Thorpe Park Resort for Fright Nights 2019 which will see the island become ‘The Home of Fear’. With a brand-new scare maze debuting, alongside the return of some past attractions, Attraction Source examines all the details for 2019’s event.
New for 2019 is Creek Freak Massacre. Set to be located in the former Loggers Leap queue line and station, Creek Freak Massacre is promising to be Thorpe Park Resort’s “most extreme Fright Nights attraction to date” and will see guests venturing through the old abandoned Creek Woods Saw Mill, which has been the site of accidents, murders and disappearances during its chequered past. Guests will hear the all too familiar sound of a revving chainsaw as they try to tread carefully past a deranged family of lumber jacks and try not to become their latest victims.
Following the introduction of scare zone, Terror at Amity High last year, 2019 will see the return of the high school vampires in “Terror at Amity High – High School Sucks”. Guests will be able to witness shocking shows every 20 minutes from 3PM at Stealth Plaza. However, despite largely positive reviews during 2018’s event, Big Top Showtime will not be making a return for Fright Nights 2019.
In a new feature for Fright Nights, guests will be invited to take on the “Feared 5 Challenge” by braving the Island’s five big rollercoasters – Colossus, Nemesis Inferno, Stealth, Saw – The Ride, and The Swarm. Guests will need to scan the QR codes located in the ride queues, decipher the creepy code-word, then quote it in the Megastore for a free Feared 5 wristband.
The Walking Dead is set to feature once more with The Walking Dead: Living Nightmare returning for its third Fright Nights appearance. This will be guests’ only opportunity to experience the maze in 2019, having been opened during the Whitsun Half Term, and part of the school summer holiday period during 2018. The Walking Dead: Do or Die is also due to return, making it the second outing for what was a much-improved version of the maze compared to its previous incarnation as The Walking Dead: Sanctum in 2017.
Returning for its fourth consecutive year, PLATFORM 15 will once again be inviting guests to discover the unfortunate fate of the Sleeper Express. After making a surprise comeback for 2018’s event, Blair Witch completes the scare maze line-up for 2019 with a sinister experience awaiting guests in the woods of the theme park. Escape room experience CONTAINMENT also returns for a fifth year, challenging guests to face their fears to break the codes and find the antidote to a deadly infection.
