A BURNOPFIELD farm will swap chickens for chainsaws this autumn, as the North East’s biggest scream park returns. 

Psycho Path will once again take over the grounds of Lintz Hall Farm this year, planning a series of terrifying evenings on Fridays and Saturdays throughout October.

And the event is returning bigger and better than ever before, with the opportunity for horror fans to test their bravery at two new attractions which are still under wraps.

Abandoned wasteland Psycho City will provide outdoor terror with a new trail, where visitors will have to navigate a dark path and avoid the nightmarish creatures that are lurking around every corner.

But inside with sensory house of horrors iScream is no safer – where those brave enough to enter will have to face a number of fears in order to make it out the other side.

The site has moved around this year with all scares leading off the main barn, which will transform into Stage Fright – offering spooky entertainment on the main stage and a whole host of street food and bars.

And thrill seekers can also enjoy a break from the scares by visiting the fairground rides at the Fearground.

Matt Smyth of 700 Acres Ltd, which organises Psycho Path, is confident this year’s event ticks every box.

“With the scream park unable to go ahead last autumn, we’ve had even more time to plan for this year and can say with complete confidence that this will be our most impressive event to date,” he said.

“We have moved the site around so all of our attractions now feed off from the top barn, which means we have been able to go much bigger – with some really terrifying scares for those who are brave enough to try them.

“We are really lucky to have such a huge site and it also means we can adapt to any Government guidelines that are in place at the time.”

Tickets start at £23 and any children aged 13 to 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. To book, or for more information, visit
