What is Frightmare?

Frightmare is the name for the Halloween Festival held at Over Farm Market, featuring five scary haunted attractions in the evening and a selection of more family friendly activities during the day in October half term.

I don’t want to do the attractions but can I accompany someone to Frightmare?

To enter the Frightmare arena, you must have a paid ticket.

If you do not wish to experience our attractions but still wish to visit, a £5 admission fee will be payable on the door.* Please be aware that under 14s must be accompanied through the attractions by a full priced paying adult.

Note: The £5 admission fee will be only be available on the door and is not available for purchase online.

What time does the event / attractions close?

Frightmare will close two hours after the last entry time slot for that evening, for example if your arrival time on your ticket is 9.30pm, Frightmare will close at 11.30pm. Please ensure you have enough time to visit all attractions.

Are the any age restrictions for attending the event?

We recommend that the evening attractions are suitable for ages 12 and over. However a lot of this depends on the child/children. The attractions can be quite intense in places and only you can judge whether your child/children will be able to cope. We certainly don’t recommend it to very young children or those who are very easily scared and babes in arms are not allowed. Except during our Slightmare sessions, our actors will not hold back on a scare should there be young children in the group.

If tickets are purchased for children aged 14 or under, they must be supervised through the attractions with a paying adult.

Can a disabled guest enjoy the attractions?

The Frightmare event is held on a working farm where the terrain may not always be even, it can also be wet and muddy. Guests must be able to walk freely and un-aided during parts of each show. We regret that due to the nature of these attractions wheelchair access is not possible. Wheelchairs however can be left at the entrances to all attractions. Please speak to a host on the night.

Are there any other restrictions?

Due to the nature of the attractions, we strongly recommend that pregnant woman or people with heart conditions should refrain from experiencing them.

What should I wear?

As the event is held in October, the weather can be quite cold and unsettled. We would advise that you wear appropriate warm clothing. Certain elements of the event will may take place on unpaved or muddy paths, therefore we strongly recommend you wear sturdy shoes or boots.

Can I visit the attractions anytime during the evening?

Please arrive at Frightmare Halloween Festival at the time allocated on your ticket, this is your arrival time. Late arrival may result is no entry. Once you are in the event, you are free to complete the five attractions in any order.

Frightmare will close two hours after the last entry time slot for that evening, for example if your arrival time on your ticket is 9.30pm, Frightmare will close at 11.30pm. Please ensure you have enough time to visit all attractions.

How scary is Frightmare?

The Haunted Hayride and our scare mazes are theatrical events that have been designed to scare you. Through all five attractions you will experience live actors, special effects, enclosed spaces and sudden noises. We advise that once you have entered an attraction there can be no turning back – you must keep moving forward and follow the designated route to the exit.

If you still have a question that isn’t answered here please contact us, but please remember once the event is on our response times will be slow as our staff are out managing the attractions.
