FearFest-Evil Package

In the darkness, echoes of old-time music and laughter have begun to fill the halls and corridors of FearFest-Evil. An invitation to the curious ones to witness something more evil than before. The existing creatures are no longer themselves, they have fallen to a new depth of madness. They are consumed by an unforgiving purpose to control, trap and torture people in cages. Once selected and prepped with paranormal fluid, these poor souls will feed the ancient evil. Be warned, it comes with a promise; you will enjoy the fear, smile at the terror and embrace being… CONDEMNED

FearFest-Evil CONDEMNED

Having been to something similar in Orlando, I wasn’t sure whether it would live up to it’s hype. IT REALLY WAS BRILLIANT! The whole experience from checking in to being guided to the entrance gates was fun and full of scares. We especially enjoyed the themed areas, and the zip wire added to the excitement.
Andy G★★★★★
Four of us attended Fear Fest last night (Halloween) at 11pm and we had a brilliant time from start to finish. We paid extra to do the zip wire which was fab would like to do again in the light, and we also got drink and food vouchers which was really good, food was yummy. The guy in black at the start hanging around the tent was super intense he didn’t even have to say anything and we were freaked out. The walk itself was extremely jumpy and lots of screams. We had a fab night thanks Fear Fest.
