Some of my best run-throughs out of any maze have been on Twisted Clowns, a highlight having the Smiler theme sang at me throughout as I was wearing the hoodie :D

 

 

Good 'ol memories.

I'm back from the dead.

 

After 3 years acting inside Twisted Clowns I am so sad to see it go! I saw pictures of it being completely torn down around Christmas 2021 and I have to admit it was kind of crazy (usually parts of the experience are kept up year round).

 

So to add some fuel to this fire.. Twisted was certainly ageing I have to be honest, as much as I love the set there it certainly at times showed its age. Though as a Tulleys Nerd I do know a bit of Tulleys History.

 

So if you think about it Tulleys has "redone/replaced" its clown maze in 2012 (Twisted Maze). 2015 (Nightshade Circus), 2016 (Pandemonium's 3D Carnival), and 2017 (Twisted Clowns-2021). So I personally believe another clown themed attraction is coming.

 

Clowns bring something so different to Tulleys and I have loved every minute of acting as one. I really do think that the new maze will involve the characters of clowns to some degree! I'd also imagine they'd keep the vortex tunnell potentially and maybe even bring back the bungee! I personally theorize we'll see an updated clown maze. They've done a clown maze since 2009 so I do doubt they would stop in 2022.

 

I really am going to miss my days in the room going through the mouth in Twisted, laying up against the wall in the checkered room. It truly was a treat to be able to work in there.

 

I will eagerly await the announcements..

TBH my favourite host spots was twisted breifing room and chop shop breifing room. 
 

The atmosphere you can create in just those 2 spaces is amazing.

 

I also quite liked the gates on wastelands were great for making people jump in the strobes.

Just spotted these posts - yes, Twisted will be missed as it was something completely different to the rest of the haunts. I'm not convinced that the clowns are coming back personally, but we'll see. Clowns just had a totally opposite vibe to all the other mazes, a good mix of humour and banter mixed with jump scares. That bungee was iconic too! All that said, I'm pleased Tulley's are mixing it up a bit this year as otherwise I think with just one new maze (Wastelands extension...?) it would feel a little tired to say the least I think.

 

My personal opinion is we could do without VIXI/Hellements but I guess the whole blinded idea scares some people. I just find it boring as hell and would much rather the whole Hellements theme was done without the bags!

To add, Tulleys have basically confirmed that one of their new mazes will be a 10/10 scare rating, the first time they've hit that high (they have a couple of 9 rated mazes). Presumably that will be the second one they announce. 

 

Obviously it's all just marketing spiele, but interesting all the same.

Interesting- wonder what they'll be doing to achieve that- more actors per person/smaller groups, more 'intense' theming or will it be this potential electric shock thing..?

 

Looking at the website- it does look like they have 4 mazes at 9/10 so perhaps they do need to differentiate one or two (wastelands, cellar, chop shop and coven).

 

On the website, as mat said, the question mark logo for the first 'new for 2022' is blue with an electric sort of design and is up near the 9/10 scare mazes, so I assume of course this one is going to be the 10. The second 'new for 2022' though is a differently themed question mark and is at the bottom of the list near to street theatre, so makes you wonder will it be an easygoing haunt, or not a haunt at all and maybe something new..? Also which will be the first announced I wonder? 

 

Either way I have my tickets sorted for tulleys so looking forward to it!

Chainsaws will have actual chains on for 10/10 scares.

 

One would assume that one maze is the "electric" shock type one reimagined, and the other is maybe the extension to Wastelands, but we shall see... one of the new mazes is presumably inside the old Clowns building since that's gone, unless that is going to be used for something else. Maybe the electric ? is for Superspark Cinema for some ultimate Thorpe Park FN burn haha - incorporate the Usherettes into the maze somehow? Or is that just wishful/wistful/lustful thinking?! 😍😁

 

As mooted though, scare factors don't mean too much as some of my scariest run throughs have been on Creepy Cottage to be honest - simple but effective scares with strobes etc! 

 

Still -  I am "gassed" for Tulleys, bring on PSL season and I can become a basic b*tch again oncemore.

The twisted clowns maze was in a marquee, and the area completely demolished….. so technically there was no building ….
