    the hidden attractions are likely hidden until they are sure they can staff every attraction, no point advertising something then not being able to do it. Theres so many halloween events now, getting actors and running staff is proving hard, looking at their current jobs up for grabs.

    Vortex

    Parts flying of a ride mid cycle, is horror, no matter what it is, as no one knows what it is at the time. We only know it was a foam thanks to merlin comments. Seeing as Horror means intense feeling of fear, shock, or disgust, it suits this event perfectly, that's exactly how I'd feel if I was there.

    Woah... Any part that's come off mid motion, non-critical or not, can do some serious damage to someone. That foam back is actually quite a large lump and after being flung off can be traveling at some speed, and only needs to hit someones head to give concussion or some serious damage. It's part of the seat thats come off, so the Sun are correct. This shouldn't be down played, because its foam. This is still serious.

    As someone mentioned on Facebook, these were from last years Fright Nights, just not been removed. Regarding scare ratings, why any company would rate any scare zone or maze 2 or 3, even 4 is just silly. They should all be 5. How they affect you, all depends on what freaks you out... so ratings are totally pointless. and not sure why they have bothered.

    I was extremely lucky to see this in person in 2015, it was just out this world. 20min show with tricks, blood, music, and sfx. It's something thorpe would struggle to bring, as they just wouldnt invest the money for it.

    Why are you assuming it's going to be a scare zone, just because it says in the press 'zones with actors', doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be a scare zone. Thorpe advertised 6 new mazes, which on released became 6 new mazes and scare zones. The location of the zone and how its worded points more towards a timed show followed by actors then roaming somewhere out of the show times (they wouldnt just leave them in a room till the next show...). You really need to chill out and stop taking everything people say so serious. We are all here to discuss what could happen this FN. No one needs to prove anyone wrong or right on what they think. We are all reading between the lines until the picture is clearer. If all these rumours are starting to bug you (yes including yours as thats a rumour too) then maybe you shouldn't read the thread.

    Because the title is "showtime"?

    It does seem the decision to open the park all sept was reverted due to staffing reasons.

    Last second changes, decided that they can't do those attractions?

    sadly not, from my sources. Looks very much like Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror nights marketing campaign tho. So, can't give them all the credit. I'm sure there'll be more.

    I'm hearing that Thorpe have given the go ahead to other groups/pages/sites following this being posted

    Sure seems so. but I don't see 6 new mazes? More false hope and advertising.

    Sounds like that's exactly what they have done. Where will they put 10 mazes? I'm very confident that the "6 new mazes" or "record amount of mazes" in thorpes eyes includes Angry birds 4D, roamers, scare zones, which are not mazes, but attractions. If that's what they meant, then they should put, attractions.

    But then why would Thorpe say "6 new mazes"? If it's not mazes, they should not advertise it as that. Frankly, it sounds like they don't know what they are doing and still making decisions on what they can actually produce. There's a reason why every other resort, park and entertainment place have advertised their line up already, and that's not to build tension. This is supposed to be a premier event in the UK, but it's acting like some half arsed, unplanned, shove lots of experience in at little cost and quality, and rely on the rides to bring people in. I think it's amazing they have brought the fan favorites back, so we'll see Big Top right, because that was more of a favorite than Blair witch, right? Or is it just poor marketing from the team... again. Hopefully this announcement will be spelling mistake free on the 11th, or when ever they decide.
