MURDEROUS madmen, killer clowns and chainsaw-wielding characters are all lined-up for the return of one of the North-East’s scariest events in October.

The interactive scare experience, Psycho Path, will once again take over Lintz Hall Farm, at Burnopfield, from Friday, October 11 to Thursday, October 31, with the new 'fearground' hoping to make the event bigger and better than last year’s sold out attraction.

Organisers 700 Acres Ltd have revealed that not only will the event be more frightening than before, but visitors will also enjoy a whole host of new attractions within the 'fearground' set to make their blood pressure rise.

This includes 'iScream' a clown maze and scary freak show, where visitors will need to survive the horrors and the crazy characters.

Also new for this year is Anarchy Arcade, which will offer a range of entertainment every night including aerial artists, magicians, fire breathers along with fairground rides and a range of street food and drink vendors.

Guests will then take to the Psycho Path trail, first bundled into blacked out vans for a bumpy ride across the site to a woodland area, where they will be met with abandoned shipping containers, burning barrels and a whole host of menacing inhabitants.

This year the original route is extended, with a track through an additional attraction, 'Psycho City' which is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where Psycho Path’s inhabitants have taken over.

Nigel Holliday of 700 Acres Ltd which organised last year’s Psycho Path and now Fearground, believes that this year’s event is going to be spectacular.

He said: “We had such a fantastic reaction to Psycho Path last year, which gave us the opportunity to completely run with the concept and expand on it even more for this October’s event.

“We have amazing creative teams working on the builds and the concepts to make sure that the site fulfils – and even exceeds – expectations, with plenty to see and do so people can make a whole evening of their visit.

“We can’t wait to unveil the new site and I think people are really going to love the new attractions we have created for this year.”

Tickets for Psycho Path start at £25 and those aged 13 to 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
