New for 2023, Lucifier's Lair invites guests into an area that comes alive! This is one of our favourite scare zones and shows we've ever seen at Thorpe Park. Even when the area was half-empty last night the atmosphere was electric! Management has looked at past events and seen what works and what doesn't. The area has three different shows that are performed, we managed to catch two of them last night. The live band and the main fire show. Danger Goat are back with a Halloween twist, singing live music and interacting with the crowd.
Lucifier's Lair has quite a simple setup but it works well. The stage from Oktoberfest has remained but around the stage, lots of fire effects have been installed. Lighting up the Thorpe Park skyline these fire effects interact with the fire show that's performed daily. If you think you know what a fire show is, think again! Thorpe Park has gone back to the drawing board and has been possibly inspired by Nightmare Fuel at Universal Flordia. Management and creatives have created their version of Nightmare Fuel featuring dancing, fire, music and a great atmosphere. The song choices were amazing and the heat from the fire effects was appreciated on a cold night. The fire effects above the stage aren't the only fire effects, fire torches can be found throughout the area. These also interact with shows, going from small flames to bigger flames during performances.
There's a huge throne that Lucifer sits on on the opposite side of the path. Controlling his minions to rain terror on the island. The level of theming for this thrown is outstanding and it feels like this scare zone and area is really here to stay! Again, we loved this show and area! Can't wait to visit again and experience the other show we missed.
