In 2010 Thorpe Park Resort transformed the former Thorpe Bell (which had been used for meeting and conference facilities) transformed into SAW Alive, a live action scare maze which was set to operate all season, however, from the 2012 season the maze only opened during the Resort’s annual Fright Nights event. Featuring some of the most recognisable scenes from the popular Saw horror film series, including the bathroom, freezer, and pendulum trap, SAW Alive places guests in their very own version of the famous film franchise. Alongside live actors, the attraction utilises a range of special effects and some incredible theming, some of which can be easy to miss in the usual, dark, show conditions.

SouthParks had the opportunity to take a closer look behind the scenes of SAW Alive providing the perfect opportunity to see some of the fantastic theming and take a peek at areas not normally seen by the public.
