Family Fright Fest ready to return
ONE of the top family friendly attractions in the North East is set to return this autumn – bigger and better than ever before.
Family Fright Fest, held at Lintz Hall Farm, Burnopfield, is a sell-out every year, with entertainment and Halloween style fun aimed at the under 12s.
And now organisers have released information about this year’s events, with the promise of something for everyone.
As well as the largest fairground the event has ever had, visitors can enjoy daily stage shows including a superhero spectacular and a Halloween style panto of Frozen.
Two fun scare mazes will also be on offer, along with a fun and games barn, Pick Your Own Pumpkin experience and prizes and giveaways for those who turn up in fancy dress.
Themed street theatre will also take place around the site, with youngsters able to interact with a range of characters.
The event will feature the cream of North East street food, including Greek favourites, Acropolis, Doughvine Desserts, Ronnie’s Fish and Chips, Twisted Chick Fried Chicken, burgers from Fat Hippo and Truly Madly Pizza.
The whole day ends with a spectacular parade which takes place at 3.45pm.
Family Fright Fest will run every Saturday and Sunday from 14 October until 29 October, opening from 11am until 4pm. Ticket prices are from £6 for a child under 15 to £9 for adults, with a family ticket for five at £36.
The event takes place on the same site as Psycho Path, the award-winning adults only scream park which earlier this year was voted the best in the UK.
While evenings may be dedicated to terrifying grown-ups, the daytime Family Fright Fest is suitable for youngsters of all ages.
Christiano Crawford, director and one of the creators of Psycho Path and Family Fright Fest, believes this the best year to date.
“Every year we add more and more attractions and have more and more surprises for youngsters,” he said.
“Family Fright Fest has become as popular as Psycho Path because children just love all of the Halloween style adventures they can have which can be a little bit scary but only in a way that they love.
“We know it’s going to be another brilliant season and we hope as many people as possible will enter into the spirit of the event and dress up.”
