Tulleys Shocktober Fest Opens With 8 Attractions, a Wedding, and a Zombie Conga World Record!
The Multi-Award Winning Shocktober Fest Scream Park Opens For 2015 With 8 Attractions, a Wedding and a Zombie Conga World Record!
The multi-award winning Tulleys Shocktober Fest has opened bigger and better than ever before. With four new attractions, the park now boasts eight haunted houses in total, each with their own unique theme. The launch night began with the wedding of Shocktober Fest’s favourite character, Esmerelda. Which was followed by their first dance, a world record Zombie Conga.
Stuart Beare, owner of Tulleys explains, “The U.S. phenomenon of scream parks has really taken off in the U.K. So for us to stay as the industry leaders over here, we knew we really had to take our attractions to the next level this year and up to the standard in America. The amazing team that sits behind the Shocktober Fest event have worked tirelessly over the past year to bring this ambition into reality.”
The team at Tulleys won the ScareCon award for the best street theatre this year to add to their already full trophy cabinet. They have also won the UK’s best Halloween attraction at the Screamie awards for the past eight years running.
Tulleys have also launched a second venue this year at Mead Open Farm in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire called The Howl. Themed around a werewolf family, the new scream park offers visitors the chance to explore five haunted mazes, all completely different to those at Shocktober Fest.
Stuart continues, “We have wanted to bring the Tulleys experience to other parts of the country for some time now. The Howl at Mead Open Farm has been a long time in the making and we’re sure that many of our fans will want to visit both scream parks this year.”
Tulleys Shocktober Fest runs from October 3rd for 18 nights. The Howl begins on the 10th for 14 nights. For more information, please visit their website www.halloweenattractions.co.uk.
