Screamland is a upcoming giant in the scare industry, and last year received rave reviews from scare veterans and the GP alike.
I personally have never been to Margate, so my whole night was a complete 'new experience' to me..Yup
Especially the completely rundown city of Margate, and some "interesting" graffiti on some of the walls..
Anyway the event was a grueling Hour and a half drive, so was it worth it?
In short, yes..
Screamland was one of the best halloween events I've ever experienced, I'm not easily scared, but the event caught me off guard with some of the most
creative scares I've ever seen in a maze.
Bloody Mirror was the parks mirror maze with a few actors..
Overall it was the shortest/weakest at the event, but it was fun for what audience it was aiming for.
I was a tad disappointed TBH, but the attraction is more of a good start to the event than anything else -3/10 or 100/10 if you have a big ego
The Paradise Foundation
TBH this mazes concept and theme disturbed me before even entering the attraction!
Overall The Paradise Foundation is a well themed, theatrical, and terrifying experience!
First positive would have to be the actors hiding spaces, they really came from everywhere.
The maze itself is very disturbing, with a lot of the actors looking disfigured and the sets full of gore.
I'm not easily grossed out but some of the actors costumes where quite disgusting, in a good way!
My only negative comment I'd say about the attraction is the ending, its a cool concept but not effective as it could of been!
All in all- The Paradise Foundation was a brilliant maze which had our group on edge throughout the experience-9/10
The Final Cut Presents..They Came From Outer Space
The Final Cut was what I'd call perfection..
The concept was so brilliant, and so brilliantly executed.
The first half is reminiscent of a theatre, with popcorn being thrown everywhere!
The use of a inflatables was genius with the transition into the movies, and once into the film
The Final Cut goes crazy from that point on!
The maze has plenty of scenes involving Sci-Fi classics which where
both funny and scary in equal measures!
If that wasn't enough awesomeness for you.. I present the ending!
The ending involved a scary alien and a girl with a gun!
The ending was loud, unique, and left our group desperate for the exit-10/10
Dead And Breakfast- Murder Hotel
Dead And Breakfast starts right after the awesomeness of The Final Cut, And oh god was the first half brilliant.
Fag Ash Lil had our group in stitches with her fast-witted insults, She even called me a slag!
Once inside your chased by Lil's new man, who has a taste for flesh!
The maze had some beautiful sets, as well as some good theatrical scares making use of the brilliant theming that immerses you in.
Lil's new man seemed to be everywhere, and caused a threat throughout the attraction.
The attraction's finale was also pretty good, and was a good ending to a great maze-9/10
Festino's Forgotten Funhouse
I've experienced some great Clown/Circus themed mazes this Halloween, but Festino has to be the best clown maze I've ever experienced.
The creativity on this one was insane.
The hiding spaces for actors where very creative, and at points you see a prop, next minute that prop would start moving to realise its a actor!
The attraction's first half is very trippy and full of unique scares, and the second half was surprisingly theatrical!
To meeting a knife thrower to a Bearded lady was pretty fun!
The ending slightly disappointed me, mainly due to the absence of Pearlywhite!
But three actors with chainsaws held our group hostage in a cage for a few minutes, which made up for it!
The maze itself though was more fun than scary, but the maze's creative scares and scenes make up for that-8/10
Overall the roamers where pretty great.
They weren't no Tulleys level, but I had some fun interaction with them.
Though the atmosphere was buzzing-8/10
Screamland is a event which I recommend to anyone who likes scare attractions.
The event is nothing short of brilliant, and even though Scenic was unfortunately closed, I still had a blast!
