24th October - 1st November 2020


We want you to know that we are currently working towards the Visit England - 'We're Good To Go' accreditation and that our event will be as safe as we can possibly make it, while still being frightening fun for you all!

We have reduced our intake slot capacity by 25% and they are more spread out throughout the day, on some days there are as many as 16 intake times, up from 3 last year, to ensure social distancing can be adhered to as easily as possible.

As well as taking these steps around our capacity all of our staff will be wearing face coverings and every visitor MUST wear a face mask of your own when going through the scare houses. In addition to this sanitation points will be present at the entrance of each house, and at multiple stages around each one too, to ensure the risk of germs spreading is as low as possible.

Inside the houses we are making some changes that will reduce major contact points, making it easier to navigate your way around and also, prior to opening, we are having each house and all major touch points around the site sprayed in a special treatment which is being used by the Government in hospitals and large public spaces, which when applied stops the spread of germs on surfaces for up to 6 weeks. 

We are making this year's event cashless so you must make sure you have a card on you to enable you to purchase some of our delicious home made street food! Also, when ordering your food we are going to have an online ONLY ordering system that will enable you to order your treats without queuing - more info will be posted on our food & drink page closer to the event!

We want you to enjoy yourselves and have as much peace of mind as possible - whilst also ensuring we can provide as many frights as we did last year!!

This page will be getting updated on a regular basis with more details, and any additional steps we introduce, as the event draws closer...As ever, yours and our staff's safety and well-being remains our number ONE priority at all times and we want you to feel reassured that we are doing everything we can to mitigate any potential risks.
