October means one thing folks... 

FRIGHT NIGHTS RETURN TO THORPE PARK!!!!

I'm a MASSIVE wimp when it comes to scary things like Horror Movies, I mean I can't even walk past a street performer statue for God's sake, so I have always avoided Thorpe Park's famous nights of horror so that I don't die of a heart attack. Not this year... this year I'm going to be the one screaming like a girl a running around like a maniac, whilst everyone laughs... I'm going to be the scaredy cat hiding behind the teenagers, looking like a div. I am going to have nightmares for months.

FRIGHT NIGHTS return to stake its bloodied claim as the nation’s premier Halloween event and reveals brand new horror maze experience Studio 13 as part of the spine-chilling line up to celebrate 13 terrifying years of everyone’s worst nightmares.

An original concept – Studio 13 dares guests to audition for this blood-soaked blockbuster of a maze as they step behind-the-scenes for a tour of the UK’s most evil film studio.  As the lights flicker, the film crew directs the action but true horror lurks behind the movie making and guests quickly discover there is no happy ever after.  Studio 13 promises a completely immersive and fast-paced experience – dreamt up by a deranged Director and acted out against a menacing backdrop of bloodied make up booths, deserted motel-themed sets, hanging body bags and crazed flesh-eating murderers on the hunt for fresh kill and hoarding limbs for their prized trophy cabinet.  Expect a script with a truly deadly ending.

Also NEW for 2014 – American thrill author Michael Grant has been recruited to curate a new on-park scare experience. Live horror action will unfold between the scare mazes and thrilling rides  as 13 new and hellish scare actor characters - created by the award-winning Grant - are on a grisly quest to surprise and terrify guests when they least expect it.

In gruesome collaboration with global horror producer, Lionsgate UK, FRIGHT NIGHTS  also brings award winning scare actor-led horror attractions based on cult classic The Blair Witch Project; the dark My Bloody Valentine 3D, the twisted The Cabin in the Woods and the menacing SAW, already the inspiration for the world’s most terrifying rollercoaster at the Park.

PLUS face thrilling rides in the dark including THE SWARM, the UK’s first winged rollercoaster,  Stealth, one of Europe’s fastest and tallest rollercoasters, Colossus, a ten loop rollercoaster and Nemesis Inferno, a feet-free, legs-dangling coaster experience, as well as SAW – The Ride, all in the dead of night and all included in the Park entry price.

What could go wrong 'ey?!

It'll be fine... won't it?

Oh God help me!!
