Big news and a regular dose of magical inspiration for family days out at Stockeld Park!
Fright Night wins Scarecon Award!
Stockeld Park’s terrifying Fright Night crowned Europe’s best new Halloween experience!
Bones (most with the skin still on) were rattled together in celebration at Stockeld Park as our new Fright Night attraction was voted the best new Halloween experience in Europe at this year’s ScareCON Awards.
ScareCON is the annual convention for Europe’s rapidly-expanding scare attraction industry and brings together hundreds of venues from across the continent, with names including Alton Towers, Thorpe Park and Madame Tussauds.
Last year we significantly upgraded Stockeld’s Halloween offering with thelaunch of Fright Night; three age-restricted scenarios including ‘The Farm House’, ‘The Cabin’ and ‘A Dead End’.
Set within our 2000-acre Estate, we were able to enhance a series of original and disturbing storylines with historical information from Stockeld’s past, dating back to the Victorian era. Set against a backdrop of disappeared tenants, the cries of children and testimony from the Estate’s incumbent Farm Manager, visitors to The Farm House were greeted both literally and figuratively with a bloodbath.
“Fright Night has hit the scare attraction market with a huge bang”, said ScareCON CEO Michael Bolton, commenting on Stockeld Park’s win. “The absolutely terrifying Farm House left us shaking long after we departed. We can’t wait to see what they do in 2018.”
