Bones (most with the skin still on) were rattled together in celebration at Stockeld Park as their new Fright Night attraction was voted the best new Halloween experience in Europe at this years ScareCON Awards.

ScareCON is the annual convention for Europes 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.

Now widely recognised as one of Yorkshires pre-eminent visitor attractions, Stockeld Park significantly upgraded its Halloween offering last year with the launch of Fright Night, three age-restricted scenarios including The Farm House’, ‘The Cabin’ and A Dead End’.

Stockeld Park was able to enhance a series of original and disturbing storylines with historical information from the Stockeld Park Estate dating back to the Victorian era. Set against a backdrop of disappeared tenants, the cries of children and testimony from the Estates 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 Parks win. The absolutely terrifying Farm House left us shaking long after we departed. We cant wait to see what they do in 2018.

Stockeld Park Events Manager Darren Smith, who led the development of Fright Night said We had to raise our game in an ever increasing market, we did that. Visitors will not believe what we have in store this coming Halloween season

Fright Night reopens on 26th October with a 4th new experience, ‘Buried Alive!’
