PrimEVIL launched their 17 nights of Terror last night but husb was lucky enough to get a sneak peak of the haunts Thursday evening. I could have gone as well, but being the lovely wife I am I said he could take a friend. I was way too scared to go myself.
What is PrimEVIL?
Set in family favourite Roarr! in Lenwade the dinosaurs take a back seat to five super scary attractions and plenty of horrors just wandering around ready to give you a fright.
There is Mayhem Manor Hotel, The Crypt, Carnevil of Terror, Forest of Fear and Arachnophobia.
Husbs favourite was the Carnevil of Terror. All the actors were brilliant, in fact they are brilliant throughout the event!
From the second you arrive everything is set up to scare, from actors ready to follow you and jump out and scare you, to flame throwers on top of the ticket booths, which was an unexpected addition to a park we are so familiar with during the day.
The actual attractions are the best bit, though you can get a park only ticket, you would be missing out on all of the fun. It’s still atmospheric without going into the attractions but they are the main draw.
He really enjoyed it and would certainly go again. He felt the cost was good value, especially considering all the work that has clearly gone into these evenings.
You need to go with an open mind and just enjoy the show.
Who can go?
Anyone over 12 years old, under 16s must go with an adult. Apart from the Extreme nights, those are for over 18s only.
Husb wouldn’t recommend it if you are easily scared (but he thinks that’s the best bit), don’t like people in costumes. There are parts of the experiences that move, flashing strobe lights and horror at every turn.
This isn’t for everyone, I know it wasn’t for me but husb and his friend had a brilliant time.
We thought they had real chainsaws, it was brilliant. We could escape, but said with glee. I have never jumped so much in my life. They follow you around.
All phrases that fill me with fear but literally had him grinning from ear to ear.
Is there food and drink available?
Yes! There is a licensed bar, soft drinks too, of course and a barbecue you can tuck into.
The live music, barbecue and bar are all themed which is great.
How long does it take?
The park is open from 6pm to 11pm, with last admissions at 9pm.
They recommend 3 to 4 hours to really enjoy the event. Husb was there for nearly 4 hours and got to see everything, wasn’t rushed and had a great time. He could have been there longer but wouldn’t have got around much quicker and would have felt rushed.
