Scare Kingdom screams back into life this October, bringing a twisted take on Halloween to Hawkshaw Farm Park in Lancashire, England.
AtmosFEAR! Entertainment, the three-week long event is now in its third year and for promises to push the boundaries for 2011 with a feast of new frights combining claustrophobia, physical contact and state-of-the-art special effects.
This year’s fright fest features two creepy corn maze attractions including the blood-soaked Voodoo Bayou and Day of the Dead, while terrifying new indoor scares include the nautical-themed HMS Hell and Blood Bath II, which offers the enticing prospect of, “twisted terror in the meat locker.”
Daytime attractions, suitable for families and children aged 10 and under, include the Hocus Pocus magic show and Firefang the friendly dragon. Daytime visitors can also take advantage of free entry to Hawkshaw Farm Park to see a range of small animals and enjoy Mrs Dowson’s famous ice cream.
For the first time this year, visitors will also be able to also enjoy a selection of fun fair rides including – of course – a Ghost Train, buy a souvenir programme from the Scare Kingdom merchandise stand or calm their nerves with a drink at Bloody Mary’s Bar. Spirits will be served.
Since it debuted in 2009, Scare Kingdom has been a sell-out success and last year attracted nearly 10,000 thrill-seekers from across the UK and beyond. The 2011 edition runs from October 21 to November 5.
