NEW SCARES fit for a slasher film will descend on the North East this October and it’s good news for horror fans – because tickets are on sale now.

Psycho Path, at Lintz Hall Farm, Burnopfield near Newcastle, is the region’s largest scream park, with tens of thousands of thrill seekers braving the event each year.

And organisers have revealed that those heading to the farm this time can face their fears at two new, nightmarish attractions – with more details to be revealed in the coming months.

The event will once again return in autumn, starting on 30 September and welcoming visitors every Friday and Saturday throughout October.

But those looking for a truly terrifying way to spend Halloween can make the most of the additional dates on the closing weekend, with the park open on Sunday 30 and Monday 31.

Horror fans can test their limits at a number of scare attractions, which are rated on a scare scale out of 10 to give visitors a taste of what to expect.

Last year’s event welcomed new scares Corn-ered – a huge maize maze with terrors behind every corner – and Isolation – which played on common fears – along with favourites from previous years, Psycho City and iScream.

And the main barn provided a respite from the horrors with spooky entertainment and a whole host of street food and drink vendors on offer.

Nigel Holliday of 700 Acres Ltd, which operates Psycho Path, can’t wait to show the region’s thrill seekers what they have in store this time.

“Psycho Path is a passion project for the whole team, which made the incredible response to last year’s sell-out event even better,” he said.

“We know the pressure is on to deliver something which exceeds everyone’s expectations this Halloween and we’re well up for the challenge.

“So while the details of this year’s scream park may still be under wraps, horror fans should watch this space because our two new attractions truly are the stuff of nightmares and not to be missed.”

Tickets start at £20 and any children aged 13 to 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. To book, visit www.psycho-path.co.uk
