For out second A Closer Look At, we’ve decided to head up north to one of our favourite scare parks. Scare Kingdom Scream Park announced their Halloween season quite early compared to most of the others, but they have a reason. This year they will be celebrating their 10th birthday and they really are pulling out all the guts this year.
So lets start with the simple bit. On selected dates between 5th October and 4th November, Scare Kingdom will open its doors to those wanting a fright. Prices depend on date with peak dates being slightly more expensive. This year included in the ticket is 6 attractions. There is also an upcharge attraction, which we will talk about later. As well as the 6 attractions, Scare Kingdom also have a Streetmosphere. These are characters that wander around and interact with guests. Madam Morgue, Necro Nancy and Demi Monde will all be keep guests entertained. There is also a fortune teller. If you’re feeling thirsty, why not visit Dougie’s Den for that drink to calm the nerves after you’ve experienced the scares.
Now onto the 6 attractions that Scare Kingdom have on offer this year

Psychomanteum – ZERO
The world-renowned scare entertainment experience returns with an all-new unique one-on-one assault on the senses. Officially dubbed ‘the UK’s sickest attraction’, Psychomanteum is shocking and graphic in equal measure. Admit yourself and discover the origin tale of Psychomanteum, are you up to the treatment?
Proof of age is required for Psychomanteum and it really isn’t for the faint hearted.
We can’t deny that we are huge, no, humongous Scare Kingdom fans, so we may be a little biased when we say this but, Scare Kingdom really is such an amazing scream park. It has a wide range of scares from medium to ridiculous and Psychomanteum is just insane.
