I imagine Creek Woods Sawmill isn't the name and instead part of the story (like Platform 15's Creek Tours). Feels almost tiring the amount of times they're beating on that dead horse for names.

 

Those posters hint at least to some sort of massacre-style story is say: people who want to kill you in an abandoned sawmill. Fairly standard theme, but can work oh so well.

 

 

On a slightly different note, we're seeing another maze in Old Town. If Platform and whatever-silly-name-was-given-to-the-other-outdoor-maze return, that's three mazes congested into a tight area. Feels frustrating given that one of the few good things last year (and the past couple of years) was a focus on spreading the scary stuff around the park.

If dead creek is back that means 3 mazes in the old town plaza  that's a very small area of the then u have got living nightmare just outside the plaza I hope the area can take it. Last year I was trying to find the signage for dead creek entrance and these so and so's would not move so I could read the sign what they maze contained. We could be seeing 2 mazes this year in old town like last year they might not have dead creek woods this year last thing I am going to say is something so happening in Blair witch there giving the route a zig zag route as saw in Jack silkstones video last night.

Dear Thorpe, please don't make the same mistake/mistakes of last year - my biggest bug bear being that when about to start Dead Creek Woods (from memory), you could see the actor on Platform 15 through a poorly covered (with see through fabric) herras fencing on the left - starting his/her spiel to the next batch of guests, kinda ruining the iMmErSiVe experience.

I did not notice through the fence of fabric when I was experiencing dead creek woods I was busy focus on my experience of the intro scene from the scientist about the infection. When I am focused on one thing I don't take notice of my surroundings.

The website has been updated, and suggest 3 new things: https://www.thorpepark.com/fright-nights

 

Mazes not coming back are Vulcan Peak, Dead Creek Woods and of course Saw Alive. Neither of last year's scare zones are advertised either, whilst everything else from last year is returning.

 

The new fears each have a description:

 

Quote

This year, join us for a demonstration of dread in this terrifying, never before seen FRIGHT NIGHTS show.

 

Quote

New for 2019, have you got the guts to take on this chilling challenge?

 

Quote

Brace yourself and prepare for the gruesome worst as you take on this new for 2019 horror maze.

 

 

So 1 new maze, 1 new show and a 'challenge' (which very much sounds like it could be a new eating challenge to be frank..).

Given they are still hanging onto TWD as an IP to sell the event for a 3rd year running, and that Do or Die is returning given how ominously awful it was, I ain’t holding my breath on this year being anything but a minuscule improvement compared to 2018.

 

The new “chilling challenge” I’m certain is gonna be where Jungle Escape is. Wouldn’t surprise me if it’s just Vulcan Peak: Escape Edition with a £5 fee labelled to it.

 

And as for the new maze, hopefully it’s better than last year’s immersive experience of nothing but toilet bowls, pallet crates, black tunnels and Asylum’s chicken wire fencing used as “theming” which we got with Dead Creek Woods.

 

Yeah, as you can probably tell, I ain’t enthused one bit after last year’s embarrassment with this announcement today. Hopefully that’ll change when the event gets nearer though, as I want this event to be great like it once was...

I'd be surprised if it is. The challenge doesn't claim to be a live action experience, which suggests no actors. I'm more expecting something low-key, like the eating challenge they used to do in the BBQ, or a silly Big 6 style challenge like Towers do over summer.

 

I hope that Screamplexx is less embarrassing this year (and at least they've stopped advertising it as 4D when it was 2D). Another show is intriguing and could have potential.

 

Also, lol at the website still bragging that Living Nightmare is the world's first maze to have scenes from season 7, with the show getting ready to start it's 10th season...

Souce- Thrill Nation. 

 

And just like everyone expected, No Big Top either. Let’s just hope it’s better than last years embarrassment.

I think that Big Top is coming back for this reaso:

 

• In the Bouncezilla (located where Big Top was) theme tune there are a few snippets of the Big Top Theme Tune. I reckon that that is teasing the big top which will be unveiled later this summer.

 

I think that Do or Die will be moved to Swarm Island where Sanctum was.

As much as I’d love this to be true, it seems very unlikely. I think as bouncezilla closes on the 8th of September, that leaves a really tight space for the big top to be built.

 

I would love do or die to return to swarm island though, it would give the maze a much better atmosphere, as last year you could see zodiac inside the maze!

Good Point tbf. But I still believe that there will be a return of Big Top because of those teasers.

It won't be returning, they have announced all returning attractions and 'new' ones to be released gradually. 

I just think that they’re teasing us as they know how badly everyone wanted it back. Seems like something Thorpe would do

I will buy everyone on this forum a drink at the local spoons if Big Top returns. I will actually go through it butt naked if it did. Time to just accept that it’s gone for good.

 

*sees the lineup announcement for Fright nights.

 

Well guess that’s me sticking to Alton Towers Scarefest and Tulleys Shocktoberfest

Really splashing the boat out there then... didn't you previously say that you would run round the park naked?

What if there teasing it for showtime though because one is a maze one is a challenge and last one is related to the dead creek sawmill

It’s humbling and a genuine pleasure to see the love for Big Top - but believe me, there is no announcement coming, no surprise return. And trust me - the park know just how much of a following the maze has and how much everybody wants to see it return. They just can’t deliver it anymore.
