As you dodge the black cat crossing your path on the way to work, whilst brushing the cobwebs from your face as you go, you spot the nextdoor neighbour cutting holes for eyes in a white bed sheet and draping it over her son. In the background you can hear the rattling of tins of sweets and can see the flickering of lights in elaborately carved pumpkins, it can only mean one thing… Halloween is on its way!
We’re all familiar with the spooky traditions of Halloween, watching scary films, creating elaborate costumes, and stocking the cupboards with sweets and treats to hand out to trick-or-treaters. This year if you really want to blow the cobwebs out and feel the adrenalin of a night of all things that go bump in the night then prepare yourself for a Halloween you’ll never forget. Europe’s largest scream park Tulleys Shocktober Fest returns on the 1st October, celebrating 25 years of screams.
Be ready for a night filled with dazzling special effects, immersive scenery, live actors and one hell of a friendly family atmosphere.
Full Shocktober Fest 2021 attraction line up
The Island – new for 2021
An experiment gone horribly wrong! The island is home to something more than man. Something more than animal. They hunt. They kill. You should RUN! With a scare rating of 8 this really is an island like no other.
The World Famous Horrorwood Hayride
Jump on a trailer and explore the abandoned Horrorwood Film Studios. Back in the Golden Age of cinema, the Horrorwood film studios were booming, full of glamour and intrigue and bursting with life. Now all old Horrorwood is bursting with is the dead. After the terrible incident with the actor who played ‘The Woodsman’ the old studio was forced to close and all the movie sets and props remained abandoned. Lots of actors lost their jobs and were never on screen again, but worst of all, they lost their fame and their MINDS. Some believe that the old actors from all of those years ago still act out the scenes of their glory days on the old set, unable to move on in this life, or the next. Lights, camera action!
Twisted Clowns 3D
A demonic circus like no other, the band of freaks and showmen conceal their evil nature with sinisterly smeared makeup and colourful costumes. But your laughter will soon turn to screams as you realise their insidious intentions. Three dimensions of dark, twisted evil that spring at you with every step.
Hell-Elements – rebrand for 2021
Traumatic rituals create strong bonds between those who experience them together. Put on a hood and walk amongst the shades and shadows, your senses challenged, your eyesight taken, your head shrouded with only a rope for guidance. In an all new story, the Ritual will take you on the darkest path yet.
The Coven of 13
The curse of Alice Hemlock is one told by few. A damned soul drowned and buried for witchcraft, her 12 sisters vowed to avenge her unjust death. It’s said they sold their soles so her evil spirit could return to them and in doing so cursed the land. The coven of twelve has often been the darkest, but when joined by their thirteenth sister they are unstoppable.
The Chop Shop
Billy-Bob, Billy-Joe and Billy-Ray may seem like three innocent brothers trying to run a family business, but they have a disturbing dark secret. Don’t let them fool you, those chainsaws aren’t just for chopping car parts. Once you go scrap, you never go back. Ever!
The Cellar Unchained
The Cellar has long been a place where things are kept and forgotten. Lost things in the darkness scavenging to survive. But those that dwell in the Cellar have not been forgotten, they have been purposefully locked in. Imprisoned. Incarcerated. An experiment. What once was human is now a feral and malnourished murder of scavengers. Live These ‘Creatures’ have ransacked their ‘comfortable’ surroundings and turned it into a deadly game of cat and mouse. So when their captor releases the ‘live food’ into The Cellar they are the cat and YOU are the mouse.
The Creepy Cottage – Opened in 1998: Still a fan favourite
The cottage has seen a lot of comings and goings and some say many of its previous inhabitants have stuck around, unable to pass over they glide around the winding corridors where the lights don’t work and the rooms where the floor boards have been eaten away by creepy crawlies. Shocks and scares to bemuse and bewilder you. Once you get in, will they let you back out?
The Circus of Horrors
The world famous Dr Haze and his army of freaks return to Shocktober Fest with a brand new truly horrifying 20 minute live show you’ll never forget.
As well as the haunted attractions, which take place in Tulleys Farm, West Sussex, the event includes award-winning street theatre, exhilarating fairground rides, two live music stages, and three food courts.
