Scare Kingdom 2016 – Will you get snuffed?

House of the Dead is the latest invention from Manchester’s newest ‘dark’ entertainment company. We’ve already had a glimpse of what they can do, when we played their escape game crossed with a scare attraction, Trapped up North in July. This time the team have gone for […]

Psychomenteum 2015 – Why did we return?

Psychomenteum 2015 – Why did we return?

Last year I had my first experience of Psychomanteum, dubbed the ‘Sickest Attraction in Britain’ but the Sun. I was probably more nervous about going in this time than I was last year. Once of my biggest fears is that in an attempt to constantly […]

Farmaggedon 2015 – frighteningly fresh

Farmaggedon 2015 – frighteningly fresh

Horror Camp Live 2015

Farmaggedon 2014 – Resting on their laurels

Farmaggedon 2014 – Resting on their laurels

Farmaggedon 2014 was a bit of a disappointment to us. Whilst the 2013 season had us thinking it was the best scare park in the North, 2014 just felt very similar to us, when we wanted to see more change.

York Maze Hallowscream 2013 – Yorkshire’s Top Scare Park

York Maze Hallowscream 2013 – Yorkshire’s Top Scare Park

Hallowscream at York Maze was one of the stand out Scare Attractions for us in 2013, with lots of ingenuity and uniqueness from their mazes, this one is well worth a visit.
