OH MY GOD, I’m going to die!..
by Rebekah Esme
Ok, so my heading’s a little over dramatic. I suppose it wasnt that bad. On Monday the 31st of October, otherwise know as Halloween, we went to the Yorkshire Scare Grounds Scream Park. I must admit, it was pretty fantastic.
A year long operation to get the park up and running sincerly paid out for Fearmasters Entertainment. On the evening of Halloween the park was buzzing.
Being typically female, I scare easily and so when we pulled up into my park the boyf thought it was a good idea to pip his horn and attract the attention of a vile looking ghoul (pictured below) who proceeded to run towards the car and push his head through the open window breating deeply into my face. The fear had started.
We entered the grounds and I felt it a good idea to briskly walk (run for my life) to the first section of the attraction, being that of Jack’s fun house. I can honestly say fun it was not! .. I practically died in there, following in a line we were told to keep moving through the fun house where live actors hammered on the walls screaming and reaching out for bypassers, the strobe lighting made it impossible to see what lie ahead only adding to the element of fear.
On leaving the funhouse we moved on, making our way down the dark muddy track towards attraction number two. Some how, by this point, I’d managed to lul myself into a false sense of security. Oh how wrong was I when a guy with a real chainsaw jumped out of the bushes at us. I can honestly say this attraction is not for the faint hearted.
Moving forwards we entered Wicker Woods were we came across abandoned tents, chairs and the odd body hanging from the trees. Actors and Actresses continued to jump out on us providing the element of suprise and fear continuously through the attraction. The Mineshaft and Haunted Church were again, areas of which live actors attempted to put the fear of god into their victims, but by this point, I had become slightly braver than I was upon my arrival. However, it goes without saying, I was more than glad to get out of there!
Yorkshire Scareground Scream Park was fantastic. A highly recommended event for anyone wishing to truely have the fear of god put into them at halloween. The way the event was exicuted, the park was put together, and the quality of the Actors was simply perfect and I would like to thank the team for a fantastically scary evening.
