FearFest-Evil Wedding Proposal

One of our guests wanted to propose to his partner as a surprise during FearFest-Evil, our award-winning scare attraction near Chepstow.

The FearFest-Evil team made arrangements to kidnap the couple on Halloween night in Chop-Chop’s house of horrors.

Our Creatures-of-the-Night carefully followed the pair around the horror event until they reached the target scare zone. At this point the creatures pounced and separated the pair.

While the unsuspecting partner was captured and being placed in Chop Chop’s chair, his other half was taken away to another part of the FearFest-Evil set. In just a few seconds our costume team disguised him up as one of our Creatures-of-the-Night and returned him to inflict terror on his partner!

The victim had no idea who was behind the mask tormenting him and shouted the safe word several times!

Finally the creature revealed himself, took to one knee and proposed… it was extremely tense, and the victim’s shock meant that the answer wasn’t forthcoming… but eventually he said YES!

After congratulations and forgiveness for the ordeal, we let our new Creature-of-the-Night keep his costume as a memento – hopefully he’ll wear it to the wedding!

Harvest Moon on Friday 13th

Half Breed Creatures

This Friday 13th September there will be a full ‘Harvest Moon’ in the sky.

With a combination of the full moon and the unlucky Friday 13th we have grave concerns for your safety and advise local residents to take precautions and stay indoors.

In previous years, large creatures have been spotted in the shadows of the woodland during a full moon, particularly at the Northern area of the National Diving & Activity Centre.

During previous full moons, local Tidenham Farmers have reported livestock disappearing and several cows have been found dragged into the woodland and mutilated.

Local folk tales talk of wolves and even wolf-men at this time of year. However this may just be a local legend created by farmers to keep people off their land – it is far more likely that the animals are large dogs that have escaped.

If you are attending the FREE Cinema Screening on Saturday 14th September, we advise keeping doors and windows closed at all times.

Please report any sightings using #FearFestEvil.

The Rising of a mysterious Crypt in Coombesbury Woods

Coombesbury Woods
Coombesbury Woods, the site of the mysterious crypt and subject of Chepstow folklore

According to local Chepstow folklore, at midnight on Hallows Eve in 1587, a gateway opened at in a long forgotten crypt. The crypt was hidden deep within Coombesbury Woods and the gateway was described as being a corridor “from this world to the depths of hell”.

Stories tell of a group of priests known as the ‘Eye Brotherhood’ who located themselves on the doorway in defence of the breach. As midnight arrived, a mysterious light appeared, blinding the men for a brief moment. When they regained their vision, the gateway had closed and surrounding them, the ground was covered in half-buried wooden crosses.
