Scare Attractions

The highlight of Fright Nights are the resort’s live action horror attractions which include scare mazes and zones, as well as an escape room experience. What’s more, as the sun begins to set, roaming characters from past mazes could be lurking around any corner ready to terrify guests.

Due to its nature, Fright Nights is recommended for guests aged 13 and above.


Location: Old Canada Creek Railway line by Logger’s Leap | Opening Times: 3pm – 10pm
Scare Factor: 2/5 Before Dark & 5/5 After Dark

Depart on a one way ticket and trek along the overgrown railway line, the last known route of the vanished locomotive — the notorious Sleeper Express. Guests must tread carefully to avoid awakening the zombie ‘Sleepers’ lurking amongst the trees.

NEW - Blair Witch

Location: Old Canada Creek Railway line by Nemesis Inferno | Opening Times: 7pm – 10pm
Scare Factor: 2/5

The spirit of the Blair Witch has taken hold in a dark and forgotten area of the resort. Remember: Never spend the night. Never look in her eyes. Never turn away from the corner. There’s something evil hiding in the woods – dare you enter after night fall?


Location: Opposite Crust food outlet | Opening Times: 3pm – 10pm
Scare Factor: 5/5

Those who dare trespass the abandoned Figaro Bros. Carnival will encounter its former entertainers who strive to make it the greatest scare on earth. Will you succumb to their torturous antics as they return for another year of crazed debauchery?

The Cabin in the Woods

Location: Behind X, next to Colossus | Opening Times: 3pm – 10pm
Scare Factor: 4/5

Guests will influence their outcome as they navigate their way through rooms of a seemingly innocent rustic cabin within which lies a hidden secret facility which unleashes nightmarishly hideous ‘beings’.

SAW Alive

Location: Next to SAW – The Ride | Opening Times: 3pm – 10pm
Scare Factor: 4/5

In each of these rooms awaits a disturbing scene from the hit film franchise, SAW, that will see guests come face to face with the sadistic Billy puppet and his nightmarish games. Will you live or die at the mercy of Jigsaw?


Location: Behind Depth Charge | Opening Times: 3pm – 10pm
Scare Factor: 3/5 | Price: £10pp (or £8pp for Annual Passholders)

In groups of 10 you’ll be locked inside four rooms inspired by many of the UK’s worst nightmares, where, under timed conditions, you’ll need to break codes to find the antidote to a spreading infection.

Roaming Characters

Location: All around the park | Opening Times: 6pm – 10pm
Scare Factor: Depends on who guests encounter…

As Thorpe Park celebrates 15 years of fear, frightful fiends from past mazes will return and roam the park for one last scare. Who returns will be decided by a vote on Thorpe Park’s Facebook page…
