Drive-thru horror maze coming to the UK – it’s ‘not for the faint-hearted’

We’re fully into September right now and Halloween fans are excited for spooky season to begin.

As of next month, the UK’s first drive-thru scare maze is coming to the country.

Splattered blood, “gruesome scenes” and unnatural creatures are all part of the frightening attraction in North Wales.

Known as FestEvil the live-action horror show will "scare the hell out of you from the comfort of your own car."

Organisers have warned that the faint-hearted and squeamish need not attend, NorthWalesLive reports.

Cyclone Events Management, who are behind FestEvil and Rock the Park music festival, claim that it’s the first UK-based immersive, drive-thru Halloween experience.

It’s also fully contactless – so Covid safe.

The maze features live characters and beastly special effects, but it’s not suitable for anyone under 16.

Fear-seekers may have to wash “blood spatters” from their cars – so bring some water if you have a long journey home.

After all, blood-covered cars might attract some attention.

How does it work?

You stay in your car for the whole event and drive through a number of scenes from horror shows and films.

In each scene, “unexpected scares” and twisted creatures will greet you.

A traffic light system will guide your car through the maze – red for stop and switch off your car.

Green means go to the next scene.

Organisers say that the show is not suitable for under 16s – but they can attend at their parent’s discretion.

You cannot turn around in the maze, so when you’re in you have to keep going until the end.

The show will last between 20 and 25 minutes and tickets cost between £12.50 and £18.50.

You must buy tickets ahead of time, there will be none sold at the gate.

Upon arrival, tickets will be scanned through your closed car window.

To make sure people feel safe masks have been "cleverly integrated into actors' costumes" and characters will socially distance from each other.

Sam Foulkes managing director at Cyclone Events Management and Rock the Park said "We are pleased to be able to bring this unique event to North Wales.

"This type of drive-thru event is extremely popular in the USA and to be able to bring that to the UK is fantastic.

"We look forward to opening the gates of hell and welcoming our first victims".
