I honestly can’t believe that Thorpe Park’s Fright Nights is 15 years old! Thorpe Park Fright Nights 2016 sounds like it will be the biggest to date! It’s running on selected dates from 7 October – 31 October and tickets start at a bargain £29.99!

As well as the classic Cabin in the Woods and Saw Alive : The Maze making a return, Thorpe Park will be upping the ante with a new scare in the woods –

Platform 15 is set in the Park’s woodlands; it is the largest scare maze to date covering 450 metres. Guests will depart on a one way ticket along an overgrown railway line. The track is the last known route of the Sleeper Express, a locomotive that disappeared into thin air. None of the passengers have been seen since.


Guest at Thorpe Park Fright Nights 2016 will walk the Island’s backroads which have never been accessible to the public. Brave guests will face a deserted railroad, explosions, séances, Ouija boards and pitch black forestry. They may also find themselves hunted and chased in the depths of the forest. Treading carefully and not disturb the grounds – zombie ‘Sleepers’ hidden among the trees may awaken.

The Blair Witch returns..

As well as this, Thorpe Park Fright Nights 2016 will see a revamp of my favourite maze – The Blair Witch. Visitors will be able to venture deep into the Black Hills Forest. Hoping to discover the truth behind the legend of the Blair Witch. 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?

The Figaro Bros. are bringing the Big Top back to town!

The Big Top was a new maze last year, and whilst it was fun – the general consensus was – it could be better. Thankfully the fear makers at the island like no other have re-imagined it for Thorpe Park Fright Nights 2016. Only the bravest guests will creep through a carnival comes back to life to terrorise those who dare to trespass. Will you succumb to the torturous antics of the wicked Figaro Bros. as they return for another year of crazed debauchery?

Containment is back!

Face your fears and make the ultimate timed escape. In groups of ten, you’ll be locked inside one of four haunt rooms, inspired by many of the UK’s worst nightmares, and tasked with breaking the codes to make your way through to the end… All in hope of finding the antidote to a spreading infection.

A combination of special effects and live actors will help guide, or disturb, you in this unique scare experience. It will be a paid for experience, it costs £10 per person.


Wait.. There’s more!

As part of the Park’s birthday celebrations, roaming scare actors will be unleashed on the Park after 6pm, so the scares will continue outside the mazes. Guests can choose which characters arrive at the Park by voting on the Thorpe Park Facebook page. They can choose from a selection of frightful fiends who have graced Fright Nights mazes over the past 15 years. Bringing them back to the Park for one last scare!


In addition to the Resort’s Fright Nights attractions, the Park’s flagship rollercoasters will be open until late too! Including Stealth, Colossus, Saw -The Ride, Nemesis and SWARM – you might even get to take a ride on Derren Brown’s Ghost Train too!

Pre-booking tickets is essential, so get your bum over to the Thorpe Park Resort website to book them.
