Do you mind me asking where you get this info from Stokesyboy? I'm quite interested about what may be going on behind the Merlin curtains here. :P

So either The Curse, Se7en, The Asylum or Experiment 10 are going to be shoehorned into the 2nd storey of a listed building? This is why the whole Chinese whispers of rumours and such don't work.

If a maze moves from Thorpe to Alton then I guess it will either be se7en or curse - I would expect Curse to be in Mutiny bay.

I doubt Asylum would move because it is in a permanent building and is probably left set up all year (correct me if I am wrong.)
Chainsaws will just be used at the end of one of Alton's mazes imo.


The Asylum is permanent you're correct, and it is still standing at Thorpe as we speak. I'm sure if it were to move, it would have been ripped out by now....

And everyone, Just because a recruitment page says the word chainsaw, doesnt mean the Asylum is moving to Thorpe.

Who knows, maybe Alton might create a brand new maze, which might be based around chainsaws?

Don't overthink things

Towers aren't having one of thorpes mazes.

There's potential to have (and might happen) two mazes in the towers this year. Shorten TOTT, and have the other one upstairs..

God knows anything else beyond that though.

Please no. The sheer length of it is one of the things that makes this my favourite maze in the UK, especially the never ending strobes.

Didn't Alton say that the Hamble Twins were caught last year? Could suggest a new maze is on the way, regardless of what it is...

Yeah, was said over Facebook or something wasn't it? Certainly suggests Boiler House won't return.. Not to sure on Alton's positioning of mazes, as last season wasn't Carnival of Screams in the BH tent as well? Only time will tell I guess...

(Oh, and to make this post vaguely on topic, woo Fright Nights! :P)

Boiler House has died a death and it will not be returning, thank god.

Carnival Remains, as is TOTT, and presumably a new maze. I agree with Pluk though, I adore the length of TOTT.. it's bloody amazing.

Sourced from an individual from the organisation who installed the Saw:Alive lighting.

Thorpe are currently working on and have requested strobe lighting domes be placed around the park during Fright Nights this year. Covered with the perspex (as per the Oblivion drop lighting at Scarefest 2010) the boxes apparently will be set to flash randomly.

I was quite satisfied to hear this and really hope it does go ahead. Any sort of lighting around the park will probably be better than last year! Lets just hope they can pull it off :)

They'll need to basically stop photosensitive epileptics from visiting though, which I can imagine not going down well. For everyone else though, this sounds great. I look forward to te results of this

They will probably just do this island on the swarm scare zone as they can cordsen off the area. They that can add lighting to the area and loads of emphasis the the ride. This seems to work in theorie as it could also be the scare zone with all the smoke machines, actors and stuff (strobes) to make all the theming work.

I really hope they bring back the high levels of theming that we used to see around the whole park instead of the mazes (and 2 of those were/are white tents plonked on a beach) and a bit on the rides. I remeber the days of when hell froze over on Nemesis Inferno and all the heads on the Colossus station ceiling. The music that is played has also been lacking these past few years. Before you used to get specially made tracks just for Fright Nights. If those strobe lights go ahead then it will make a nice and welcome change to the lighting we currently get. Basically, all I want is the park to send of a clear message as to what time of year it is around the whole park. It was great to see actors wandering around the park but on all the times I went last year other than the AP fright Nights they were hanging around with the security at The Asylum's exit. The only time I felt the creepy atmosphere the last couple of years has been the AP evenings purely because it is so quiet you feel like you're not supposed to be there and the actors acually followed me and my friends around. Bring back the atmosphere that Fright Nights used to have.

To be honest I like the music they've played the last few years. It's mostly been from the Saw movies.

Queuing up for stealth with this blaring
,
a constant haze of smoke, perfect ambient lighting. It makes the Stealth plaza one of the best places on the park during FNs.

Then walking out of the park during 2011, having this

playing across the bridge, again just wow. Seeing all the advertising for THE SWARM, incuding the looming lift hill being built, I left the park with chills, it just left such a great impression.
