The FearFest-Evil Experience & Attractions


Prepare yourselves for a night of pure terror, taking you on a terrifying journey through waves of anxiety-inducing, heart-pounding Scare Zones. Featuring a horde of gruesome characters, stunning sets and spine-chilling performances, FearFest-Evil presents a night of no-holds-barred horror and pure entertainment.

Set around an abandoned railway line, disused quarry & forgotten woodland at Chepstow’s National Diving & Activity Centre, FearFest-Evil is the ultimate Halloween Scare Experience for only the bravest of horror fans.

Tales of the Dark

It starts in the dark with a squeeze and a gentle push, your heart is racing to the distant sounds of old time music and laughter. A twisted forest of haunted trees and doors and mazes  await. Can you survive the creeping terrors of the woods with your sanity intact?

House of Horrors

An expanded strangled maze of constricting corridors and hidden chambers and cages. Victims become confused, lost and feel alone amongst the mania, while questioning their survival and sanity.

Will you be the first to escape the putrid gunge or remain Condemned deep within the seeping flesh of FearFest-Evil’s walls.

Live Entertainment & Refreshments

The Water View Marquee will have gigs every night from our live bands followed by a disco. So if you survive the nightmares of our scare zones you can celebrate, drink and dance the rest of the night away.
