Before we go into this in detail we have to admit that we will be incredibly biased with this as we know a few actors/actresses working there this year as well as other factors, thus causing us to be biased.
After lasts years ScareCON win for Best Halloween Attraction for The Village, a lot of eyes are on Xtreme Scream Park to pull off another year of incredible haunts. And will they do? Of course they fucking will as they have a great team this year (told you, biased).
So here are the basics. Xtreme Scream Park is located at Twinlakes Park, just outside Melton Mowbray. It runs for 20 nights this year, 28th – 29th Sep, 5th – 7th Oct, 12th – 14th Oct and 18th – 31st Oct. Prices vary depending on when you visit with both chicken and fastrack options too.
So onto the attractions. Xtreme have 6 Scare mazes this year. They are:
Ash Hell Penitentiary
In 1609 a prison was built like no other. It was specifically designed to house and rehabilitate the criminally insane in particular inmates with cannibal tendencies. The People of Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Rutland had previously locked insane cannibal family members in secret attics and cellars to avoid public interference, they fed on the homeless community.
The local people became fearful as Cannibalism spread, the Duke and Duchess of Eaton convinced the Lord Major of Thrussington to remove these flesh thirsty individuals from towns and counties. The Lord Major, whose family fed on human organs as part of an aristocratic diet was forced to build a unique Prison, and from this Ash Hell Penitentiary was built. Designed to house these primitive prisoners in comfort, Ash Hell was jointly managed between trusties and specially selected highly qualified guards.
The Duke of Whissendine was a highly respected judge and was a poetic cannibal, rarely indulged on human flesh, specializing more in human sacrifices. At the age of 35 he voluntarily admitted himself to Ash Hell Penitentiary and positioned himself as the Governor , due to his status in the community he was welcomed to this role and was trusted by all. His thirst for human flesh in the early years was controlled with new prisoners, the weak, ill or frail. As years went by the guards and trustees became curious of the Duke and other inmates and wanted to try human flesh. The Duke was still an influential body in the community and many innocent people were sentenced to Ash Hell on his authority, these were quickly “de-fleshed” by Ash-Hell inmates.
By 1610 cannibalism had become acceptable human behaviour inside Ash Hell Penitentiary, victims were bought from flesh markets and secretly smuggled in to feed the primitive inmates, the disposal of bones was a problem. The flesh eating Duke began extending his empire, burying the butchered human bones in the walls!
The Voodooists have advertised an event to the public promoting cleansing, enrichment and purity of the mind to those attending their ritual. Those entering the HooDoo attraction are promised eternal enlightenment and epiphany, with all negativity removed from their lives, leaving them in an eternal bliss with new perspectives on life. However all is not as it seems…
Since attending the rituals, few have been seen since, with those managing to escape HooDoo VooDoo being left in pits of despair, broken, tormented and suffering. It has been rumored that the voodooists have been falsely luring innocents into the attraction and using their souls as a sacrifice and offering to the Gods. These sacrifices have throughout history, pleased the Gods, preventing disaster and devastation to the Voodoo tribes. Your visit to HooDoo VooDoo is also your sacrifice, where you risk soul extraction, your emotions abolished and eternal emptiness…

The award winning The Village
And Curtain Chaos – The Final Curtain!
During the year of 1974 throughout the land there has been an increase of farmland pests threatening the crops. In order to sustain the human race, an agency backed Professor Crow, granting him large sums of money to create genetically modified scarecrows to effectively deal with the problem. These scarecrows were to be designed with the ability to scare off any unwanted visitors.
Professor Crow conducted research into mixing scarecrows with human living tissue and embryos and eventually he reached his success. His creation, the perfect scarecrow had been born. Professor Crow wanted more he craved the ultimate intellectual hybrid, the human brain would be the only option and so it began…
The scarecrows intelligence rapidly increased, no longer content with containment in their fields and so they turned their attention to the humans. In order to control his creations, bending them to his will to perform the merciless deeds, Professor Crow embodies the figure of a crow through his clothing, mannerisms and actions. The perfect scarecrows will obey his command and revere him as a God like figure – their creator. Only when dressed accordingly do the mutant Scarecrows recognise Professor Crow as their master, any resemblance to a human would be his downfall. Sacrifices will be made to appease the God.
