Experiment 10 sign

Thorpe Park has announced that a new horror maze, Experiment 10, will form part of the line-up for its Fright Nights 2011 Halloween events.

This year's Fright Nights will take place on October 6-9, 14-16, and 21-31, with the events returning for a tenth straight year. As in previous years, a range of temporary horror mazes will be on offer, with the park's major attractions remaining open until 10pm.

Experiment 10 will replace Hellgate in the Fright Nights line-up, and is likely to be located in the building that houses the X:\No Way Out rollercoaster. Its plot will see guests entering a "chilling" government test lab, where an experiment has taken a turn for the worse. Thorpe Park promises that guests will be "gassed, confined and left screaming for a way out" as they are tormented by mutated test victims.

The remaining horror mazes at Fright Nights 2011 have all been seen in previous years, and include:

  • The Curse - set in a wrecked ship which has "washed ashore" in the Amity Cove area of the park.
  • Se7en - a gory maze based on the seven deadly sins (Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy and Pride). Located in the park's arena.
  • The Asylum - set in a maze of chicken wire fencing, with escaped mental patients terrorising guests.
  • SAW Alive - the park's year-round horror maze, which is based on the SAW movie franchise.

Theme Park Tourist will be attending the opening weekend of Fright Nights and will feature a full review on the site shortly thereafter. You can see what we thought of the last year's event in our Thorpe Park Fright Nights 2010 review.
