FestEvil - live action drive through horror scare maze
A live-action scare maze with a difference is coming to Wrexham this Halloween, guests will navigate through horror scenes from the safety of their own car.

Due to the ongoing social distancing measures that are required to prevent the spread of coronavirus, one events company is making its Halloween attraction a drive through experience.

FestEvil will run daily between 6pm and 10pm from October 16 until November 1 at the Rock the Park festival site in Wrexham, north Wales. It will be the UK's first COVID secure, contactless Halloween experience.

Cyclone Events Management hope that the attraction will drive visitors crazy as they navigate their way through a scary maze filled with live actors, guided by a traffic light system.

Cyclone say, "we are proud to be the UK's first and only immersive, completely contactless drive-thru Halloween attraction."

Tickets for the event went on sale on September 11 and due to COVID-19 safety precautions all guests must purchase tickets in advance online. This is because the event is completely contactless. Upon arrival your ticket will be scanned through your closed car window. No tickets will be available on the gate.

In fact you'll never leave your car during the whole experience, which last for around 20 minutes. Once your car enters the maze you must complete the event in its entirety. No matter how scared you get, you must drive through every zone, each based on a scene from a classic horror movies or television show.

As you drive into the darkness you'll be greeted by twisted creatures and unexpected scares in every scene, some of which are extremely gruesome. So gruesome in fact that the event's website warns that you might need to wash your car afterwards "as there may be blood splatters on your windows and doors."

Don't worry though, the events company assure guests that the blood they use won't damage your car and will easily wash off after you visit.

Although any age can attend at a parent's discretion, the maze's creators recommend only those 16 years or older venture into the maze because of its shocking scenes.

The event's organisers say, "the safety of staff and guests is our top priority and we have designed the entire experience with the current health guidelines in mind." To achieve this social distancing will be in place and masks have been "cleverly integrated into actors' costumes."

Tickets start at £12.50 per car, with £1 from every sale being donated to Nightingale House Hospice in Wrexham. More details about the event can be found at
