This October, Avon Valley Adventure and Wildlife Park is once again opening the doors to their terrifying award-winning Halloween event FEAR. Awarded the prestigious UK’s Best Scream Park award by ScareCon earlier this year, it’s one of many events in the Bristol area that are helping put the city on the map as Scare Capital of the UK.

Back for its 6th year, the multi-award winning event consists of four returning scare attractions: Phobia:Rebirth, Anarchy Live, X4 and House of Clowns. New for 2019 is an additional 5th maze, VITA NOVA.

Not just for the scare fans, this is a Halloween festival of freakalicious fun for everyone. In the main event area see roaming immersive street theatre with a growing, notorious cast of characters ready to scare and surprise you with their twisted circus performances. The main stage has an immense fire, laser and light show illuminating the sky and performance arena. In the undercover bar you can find paintballing and a two-minute escape room. Outside there are high adrenalin fairground rides, music, food, open fire pits and a festival vibe.

The Scare Mazes are themed areas you walk through in small groups and encounter live theatrical entertainment designed to scare you. Since what evokes FEAR in one person to the next differs, there are a variety of tricks in store using all elements – scare actors, visuals, sensory or sound effects. A bit like being in a part of a horror film, it's scary but fun too and will definitely get your heart pumping!

Not a scare maze but an interactive first person shooting experience. Take control of a weapon and kill as many 'infected' as you can before they breach your position. Can you escape and evade them through the maize field?

Whether you’re a scare fan and relish the frights within the mazes or you’re looking for an alternative night out, a night at FEAR is #aBloodyGoodNightOut and one you will not forget in a hurry. Bring your friends, a date, your family or just yourself if you’re really brave. Try a maze and recover by a fire pit with a drink from the bar and some tasty street food while soaking up the atmosphere, street theatre and fire and light shows. This event is what the dark nights are made for.

FEAR at Avon Valley Scream Park is located on the site of Avon Valley Adventure & Wildlife Park, just off the main A4 between Bath and Bristol. 

Driving? The park is just after the Keynsham bypass (A4, Bath Road). You will pass Waitrose, which is located on you left-hand side and when you rejoin the single carriageway look for the brown signs, to turn left for Avon Valley Adventure & Wildlife Park.

Travelling by bus? There are a few buses that drive past the end of the Park's road, the X39 and the Green Air decker bus. The bus stop is located near the end of Pixash Lane, then it is a short walk from the main road to the Park. Please note: when walking over the railway bridge, the road narrows, so please be careful.
