FRIGHT NIGHTS 2021 is now underway at Thorpe Park Resort, with the event celebrating 20 years of fear. With three scare mazes, four scare zones, roaming scarecrows, and two scare shows, the 2021 line-up is one of the most comprehensive to date. Attraction Source was invited to the preview event on Wednesday 6th October to experience everything this year’s event has to offer.
New for 2021 is Trailers, where guests are invited to witness the power of film come to life at SuperSpark Cinema – a picture house with a shocking reputation. The maze contains a spine-chilling collection of horror classics inspired by FRIGHT NIGHTS’ past, with call-backs to mazes such as The Asylum, The Big Top and The Curse, interspersed with scenes from fictional horror films. This new attraction is well-executed throughout, with illuminated signage and queueline entrance, the exterior façade of SuperSpark Cinema that teases some of the latest releases, and a more theatrical first couple of scenes that sets-up the storyline. Aside from a scene inspired by a certain Vulcan Peak, the building’s interior has been completely transformed from its time as Jungle Escape, with high-quality scenery that continues the higher standards that the event has looked to achieve in the last couple of years.
