Thorpe Park Fright Nights entrance

Thorpe Park has extended the dates for Fright Nights 2012, as well as promising a brand new horror attraction for the annual Halloween events.

While details of the full line-up for this year's Fright Nights are yet to be revealed, the park has confirmed that they will take place on October 12-14, October 19-21 and October 26 - November 4. This appears to rule out a return for last year's Thorpe Park Blows It Up firework events, which would have been likely to take place on the November 4 weekend.

Fright Nights 2012 will be the eleventh version of the Halloween celebrations to be held at Thorpe Park. As in previous years, a range of temporary horror mazes will be on offer, with the park's major attractions remaining open until 9pm.

The location for the new horror maze has not yet been confirmed, but it is likely that it will replace one of last year's line-up. The Curse, which has been in place for several years and has received negative reviews for many of them, seems the most likely maze to be dropped. This would leave the Experiment 10, Asylum, Se7en and SAW Alive mazes, plus the new addition.

Update: Thorpe Park has confirmed that The Curse will return for Fright Nights 2012.

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 2011 review.

Tickets for Fright Nights 2012 can now be purchased online from the official Thorpe Park website, with prices starting at £24.



Does anyone know if Barry and Stuart are back this year?
