Death's Doors

Thorpe Park
2022 - 2023

New for 2022 Death Doors is a new scare zone located under the Nemesis Inferno lift hill with the entrance near the exit of the ride and to the left of Mr Monkeys Banana Boat Ride. This new scare zone takes the idea of ‘Trick or Treat’ and transforms it into a spooky scare zone, where you walk around knock on doors and you don't know what’s behind it, it could be nothing or a Halloween character from past Fright Nights events or something new and different. Our favourite character we've bumped into so far is Halloween Santa! We weren't too sure about this scare zone when we first heard about it, but seeing it in person and seeing other people's reactions is amazing! Deaths Doors is so much fun and the fact that each walkthrough of this experience is different makes it a 10/10 in our book. As we revisit Fright Nights so much throughout the event it's cool that we might not see something until later in the event. Top tip, if you hear a siren watch out as all of the doors open and the monsters come out to play! Since the press night, a few changes have been made to how the scare zone operates, you are now batched into the scare zone and reminded to knock 2 times on each door and not to kick the doors or touch the actors. 


Deaths Doors is back for 2023 and some changes have been made inside of the maze. New signs have been installed next to the doors to tell you what creature you might encounter in that doorway. This year new characters also feature inside the scare zone, we love the fact that the park can easily refresh the maze contents and you never know who and what you might experience within the attraction. Another change is a character greets you when you enter the maze and explains a bit of the back story of the attraction. This person then greets you halfway through again to ask how you getting on and leaves you to the demons of Death Doors. Last year we weren't 100% sure about this attraction but this year the zone appears to flow better and actors are very comfortable with their characters and roles. Going to miss Demon Santa though. Great costumes and scares, and did we mention it exits into Lucifer's Lair? Our only fear about it exiting into another scare zone and the show is it might get very busy on peak days.
