Fright Nights returns to THORPE PARK Resort for 2016, with a host of live action horror attractions and the opportunity to experience the resort’s rides in the dark as the event celebrates 15 years of fear! Something is believed to lie at the end of the line in the brand new PLATFORM 15, and the most popular characters from the resort’s past mazes will freely roam the park.
The event runs on selected dates, with these being; 7th – 9th October, 14th – 16th October, and 21st – 31st October.
On every day of the event, the theme park is open from 10am until 10pm. Rocky Express and Rumba Rapids will close at 5pm, whilst I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Maze will be closed for the duration of the event.
All scare mazes will open at 3pm and remain open until park close, with the exception of Blair Witch which will open at 7pm until park close.
All scare mazes and scare zones are included with theme park admission, however the general admission price does increase during Frights Nights. You are best booking in advance to get the cheapest possible price.
Holders of a THORPE PARK Annual or Season Pass, or Standard Merlin Annual Pass are subject to a £5, £10 or £15 admission charge dependent on the date of your visit. Holders of a THORPE PARK Premium Annual Pass or Premium Merlin Annual Pass are subject to a £1 reservation fee, if they wish to prebook their Fright Nights ticket.
CONTAINMENT, an escape room experience, will incur an additional charge of £10 (or £8 for Annual Passholders).
