Oh, you know, it’s like only an insane multi-attraction Halloween event. This year, we have two huuuuuge linear mazes, with multiple themes within, in a previously abandoned building. The mazes and monsters are designed and trained to push the boundaries of human emotion, triggering fear, fun and everything in between. Whether you scream, laugh or cry, you’re bound to have a great Halloween outing with us because we’ve also got beer, snacks, sick t-shirts, immersive stage shows – and beer. (What more do you need?)
In short, no. To enter the Frightmare hub, you need a paid ticket.
Anyone 15 and under must be accompanied through the attractions by a full-priced paying adult (18+ years old). Mad, because I’ve met loads of 15-year-olds that are more adult than me, but these are the rules, soz guys.
Frightmare is now a 12+ rated event, but as above, 15 and under have to be accompanied by an adult. Preferably a responsible one, but to my youngens out there, I recommend choosing a cool adult to come with.
The attractions are suitable for ages 12 and older, though this depends on the kid really. Attractions can be quite intense, and only you can judge whether your child/children will find it fun or if it will ruin their lives.
* Adults are considered 18+ years of age. (lol – I’m not even an adult now, and I’m 27.)
Time slots are time slots for a reason, and you literally chose your arrival time. So, c’mon people, please turn up at the time allocated on your ticket. If you are late, we may be all like “halt, no entry”.
Once you’re in, you’re in baby. You can complete both attractions in either order; just make sure you do them both because refunds won’t be given if you fail to complete an attraction.
Closing will be roughly two hours after the final ticket time slot. So like, if it’s 9pm, attractions will close at 11pm. If you’re not sure, there will be looooads of signs telling you the closing time on the night.
It’s all relative. Our motto is scream, laugh, cry – it’s your experience. While our monsters will try and scare the crap out of you (it’s literally their one job), we know that being scared is subjective. So, lean back, move forward and keep rolling, rolling, rolling. The mazes will have live actors, special effects, enclosed spaces and sudden noises. What scares one person may make another laugh, just enjoy the experience.
Word of warning: once you enter an attraction, there is no turning back – you HAVE TO keep moving forward. The only way out is through. (or in a body bag… what.)
Yaaas. We’ve streamlined the mazes into two huge linear attractions with multiple themes throughout. This means not missing a thing! Whereas before you’d queue for a five-minute maze, these new attractions will take way longer – nervous-nellies be aware!
Insane stage shows and the bars are all in the hub. As tempting as it might be, try not to loiter and then you should have no reason to miss a maze.
We’re in the city centre now, so there is parking galore. We don’t have a specific car park so you might need to pay, but at least you won’t get stuck in the mud like in previous years. Head over to Gloucester City Car Parks.
Also, check out the ‘Find Us’ tab for deets regarding public transport – you can have a beer or five then!
