Avon Valley's FEAR scream park is opening for a special summer session this weekend. For one night only, on Saturday July 13, the popular award-winning experience is being dubbed the park's one off 'Summer Frights' event as part of a jam-packed summer at Avon Valley.

The new scare event will see brave visitors experience what is being described as a 'spine-chilling' evening. It builds on FEAR's New World Order, the existing narrative for FEAR's Halloween experience.

Guests will embark on a 40-minute journey through the scare maze attractions, navigating the darkened corridors of X4, plunging into the murky depths of The Core and facing both the mind-bending and memory-erasing treatment of VITA NOVA, as part of the 'hair-raising' adventure.

The event is a timed linear event as you complete the New World Order Trilogy back to back and your ticket will gain you access to the full 40 minute scare experience. Before and after your time slot, you'll be able to soak up all of the thrill and fear at the on-site bar.

Available time slots, at time of writing, run from 6.15pm-9.30pm on the night. Tickets cost £25 each and can be purchased here. Ahead of the event, Bristolians may catch a glimpse of a rather peculiar site in the form of eight zombies who will be hopping aboard a train at Temple Meads Station, with the aim of finding their way back to Avon Valley and the Keynsham area.

Doug Douglas, owner of Avon Valley Wildlife & Adventure Park, said: “Summer 2024 is set to be our most exhilarating ever. We love being able to host thrilling one-off events like FEAR Summer Frights, while still offering our established and well-loved daily summer activities. This year, guests will be able to stay at the park until 8pm on Fridays, to really make the most of that summer evening sunshine and those later holiday bedtimes.”

This summer also marks the return of the Boomerang ticket, which will see visitors receiving discounts awarded the more times they revisit the park, so guests will have a chance to see and do everything, all while saving money on each subsequent visit. Guests will pay standard entry on their first visit and, when picking up a Boomerang Ticket, will get 25% off their second visit, 50% off their third visit, 75% off their fourth visit with the fifth visit then being completely free of charge.

New season opening times will also see guests being able to stay at the park until 8pm to enjoy the full breadth of activities and entertainment on offer, while making the most of the later evening sunshine.
