We’re gearing up for Halloween and one of the annual highlights is the unveiling of the new mazes at one of the UK’s best theme parks, Thorpe Park.
This year looks set to be better than ever as Thorpe Park has unveiled a gory billboard featuring walkers feasting on blood and entrails, to promote two new exclusive The Walking Dead mazes. It marks the launch of the theme park’s annual ‘Fright Nights’ season starting on 29th September, which will be biggest in its history, running for more days than ever before.
Thorpe Park has secured an exclusive deal with the U.S. television network AMC to launch two new live-action attractions based on the globally renowned TV series The Walking Dead. The indoor maze called The Walking Dead: Living Nightmare will see visitors experience terrifying iconic scenes of the global phenomenon, including the world’s first live attraction featuring of season 7. They will join other survivors on the brink of death at the mercy of the notorious Negan.
In The Walking Dead: Sanctum, guests will experience a live-action outdoor maze like no other. Following in the footsteps of survivors, they have to navigate their way past the roaming walkers or risk being captured.
Dominic Jones, Divisional Director, at Thorpe Park Resort said, “Fright Nights is THORPE PARK Resort’s biggest event of the year, and we’re hugely excited to bring the worldwide phenomenon that is The Walking Dead to our visitors. Each of the two specially built mazes are absolutely terrifying and are definitely not for the faint hearted.”
Other mazes returning for 2017 include: SAW Alive, Big Top and Platform 15.

Friday 29th September – Sunday 1st October
Friday 6th October – Sunday 8th October
