I went to Fear-Fest for the 11pm slot on Halloween. I absolutely loved it. It was obvious that a lot of effort was put into the walk, with the sets being very professional.

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.

“Terrifying new horror experience FearFest is a fully interactive scare journey featuring live actors, horror zones and hair-rising shocks.”

Craig S

Wow – what an amazingly spooky evening at Fear Fest. Though I knew it wasn’t real, the professional way this was all done actually spooked me up! I felt like one of the survivors in The Walking Dead at one point when walking down the disused railway track. The house and tunnels were sooooo well done I nearly pooped! Here’s to next year!

Craig S★★★★★
Andy G

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.

What an awesome night!! The set was totally amazing!! I owe a massive thank you to the gas masked freezer guy who got me through the tunnels in a moment of blind panic!!! He took total control when I didn’t know what to do!! Dont think I thanked him I was such a mess. So thank you gas mask guy 🙂 P.s. The zip wire was phenomenal!!!

My experience with Fear Fest was fantastic, from the tent with drinks and bobbing apples to the scary masked man and then of course the maze of zombies and Chainsaw’s. The story telling was fab, sets were great I thought I got away from not getting my knees wet going through the pipes but hell no right at the end squishy mud and straw I was stinking but great fun the zip wire finished it off what an amazing experience highly recommend

Lewis K★★★★★

My wife and I brought our children (9 and 6) to the daytime ‘Family Maze Trail’ for children and were frankly blown away by how much there was to do and the fact that we got to interact with some of the scare maze actors.

They were all really careful to match their attitude and delivery at a level our children were comfortable with – my daughter (6) was particularly uncertain at first but was enthralled within minutes of meeting the first character who led us on the start of our journey.

Hopefully you’ll keep this event going as we thought it was brilliant; as great in it’s own way as the evening event is for adults. Both children were allowed to wear their costumes on their trip (we took a witch and a skeleton with us) and as adults we got to go along for free!

Believe me when I say that it’s nigh on impossible to find things like this for kids that are designed to gently introduce them to the grittier side of Halloween; you guys have hit on something unique here and the execution is brilliant. My 9 year old boy now says he wants to come to the evening event when he turns 16 and the only time my daughter cried for real was when it was time to leave!

Every member of staff we met – from those working in reception to the (simply awesome) scare maze actors right through to the on-site security – everyone acknowledged us in a friendly way and wanted to know if we were enjoying our visit!

10/10 – and that score is from both adults and two very happy little monsters!
