Horror Camp LIVE! (Lancashire, England)

horror camp live

Horror Camp LIVE returns for its second year in Lancashire, England.

Following it’s unprecedented success in 2012, the terror team behind the event have reimagined the offering with more heart-stopping content than ever before. Forget cosy campfire sing-songs and toasted marshmallows, this is an intense fear-infused fright fest for 18+ adults only.

Located on the grounds of Scare Kingdom Scream Park, at Hawkshaw Farm Park near Blackburn in Lancashire, the event sold out in 2012.

Horror Camp LIVE!, is the world’s first interactive horror camping experience, inspired by movies like The Blair Witch Project, Cabin Fever and Friday the 13th. It is a unique 13 hour scare entertainment experience which mixes live scareactors, indoor and outdoor scare attraction environments, dare-based games, and a horrifying story which manifests around the campers in four dimensions.

This new generation of ex-scream entertainment features psychological torture, sensory deprivation and hands-on simulated assault. All new scareacters for the 2013 event include Hell-Razor, a chainsaw-wielding pig hybrid, Zombo the cannibal clown and Ms. Twitch – a brand-new Camp Mistress from the “Institute of Happiness” who controls the campground with a sickly-sweet smile and an iron fist!

Horror Camp LIVE is open May 24 and 25 and July 26 and 27, 2013.

About The Great Horror Campout

This ISN’T your 9-year old son or daughters’ camp, and “Happy Trails” will be a figment of your imagination. This camps only desire is to ruin you! CAMP AT YOUR OWN RISK.

The Great Horror Campout (GHC) is an overnight, immersive experience that puts campers into an interactive horror camping adventure. Whether campers decide to stay in their tents or venture into the darkness, they are fair game. You will be lured out of your tent one way or another. Whether it’s to participate in the “Hell Hunt,” use the restrooms, or just being dragged out by your sleeping bag, even campers whom want to sleep or hang in their tent with friends will find themselves having to go into the dark sooner or later.

Lasting 12 hours (8pm-8am), campers will find themselves confronting every fear that haunted them as children. Located on the 32 acre Los Angeles State Historic Park, campers will have the opportunity to meet a plethora of species that were only thought to have existed in legend.

GHC is suitable for adults 18 and over. The experience begins at 8pm. There will be suitable time for sleeping, however the residents of the woods never sleep. Survivors leave the site at 8am. It is a high scare, high startle content experience. There will be no refunds after a ticket is purchased and a patron has entered the campsite.

The Great Horror Campout runs June 7 and 8, 2013.
