Halloween Review: Shocktober Fest
Share This Article:
Want to scare yourself silly this Halloween, but can’t be bothered to organise your own party? The Shocktober Fest scream park is the perfect place to get your heart racing and blood curdling. Set across the spooky Tulleys Farm on the outskirts of London near Gatwick, Shocktober Fest is a theme park like no other. Made up of a haunted funfair, the Cirque de Shock and the Woodshock music stage, Shocktober Fest is home to live action zombies, mummies, ghouls and monsters of all varieties, who’ll jump out at you as you walk around the spooky event. However, it is the six scare ‘experiences’ that really make this a worthwhile visit this Halloween. If you’ve never been lost in a haunted maze before, frantically grabbing onto the shoulder of the person in front of you while waiting for the latest horror to jump out at you, then you’re in for a treat. By the end of evening my voice had been reduced to a croaky mess from screaming and my nerves needed calming with a drink in the Aftershock Bar. The haunts are truly terrifying. The sense of claustrophobia, anticipation and sheer fear as you walk around each maze is addictive. From the feral creatures of the Cellar Haunted House to the creepy clowns of the Twisted Maze, the live actors are superb and never anything less than convincing.
