This can't be real? People actually would pay for this and call it entertainment? I can understand if you like horror movies that you might like the idea of paying to be scared but this attraction is taking it one step too far....

This looks fantastic! I love horror, but like sky diving or bungee I think I'd be too afraid to do it. Looks like fun though. The trailer had elements of Hellraiser!

I would agree that the words "sexually explicit" should be put in the description, if it will make everyone happy.

However, if you are into Horror and Cult Horror, especially the type of Films that are on the Horror Channel, you know exactly what to expect.

My consultant visited this park, he also serves in the Forces, I am not going to say much more but he has the build of Ross Kemp, is trained in combat ( and I most definitely would ;) ). So people who are trained in C&R ( i am so is my eldest DD), go regularly.

The problem is that the world and his wife are attending these events and dragging their friends along, if they left us, die hard, Horror/Gore/Cult fans to it, then there would be no pearl clutches to report back, wailing how society is going down the pan and how humanity is going to hell on a hand cart.

In most Cult films, Men and Women are equally tortured/assaulted, if that's not what you are into, that's your business, some if us are. We are still mentally well and have respect for others etc, we just like fantasy, that has a dark side.

This attraction isn't about BDSM, it is old school cult horror.

Farmaggedon is my local one, so I have been going every year, since it opened ( as well as travelling to go to them all), part of the fun, is spotting the Movie references and themes.

If it isn't what you are into, there are plenty of other lesser events, Lantern Parades etc that you can attend.

Ok, so what beats this next year in the scariness stakes then? My imagination is running riot as to what they might come up with.

I don't just want to be chased by men with chain saws, I want Pigment with chain saws, preferably all over 12 stone and 6 ft (as follows on from Squeal ), a midget one should also be present.

More from Silent Hill, I think it is under used. It is a shame that chasing people through farm fields has stopped because if injuries.

I like walking through my local country park on the dark ( and when camping) because I can picture the fear when I watch horror, more. I was part of the campaign to keep it

Sorry, finger slipped.

To keep the park unlit.

Thinking about it, I think that it is better to indulge in total make believe, than some of the Murder Mystery's etc that I have attended, based on real life events, even if they were over a hundred years ago.

I have gone to the re-enactment of court hearings and when I have thought about them later, have wondered if the sentencing of desperate people and children, should ever be used as entertainment.

I think it's horrific... Mostly because of its low price, accessibility and not sure if people really know what they're signing up for.

I can imagine alot of ways that someone ends up doing this unaware how very like a sexual assault they are acting out. And ends up very upset and damaged.

The shock element seems part of it and that's the riskiest thing about it as far as I'm concerned.

DP and I had wanted to go to that Horror Camp Live (same company AtmosFEAR) a year or 2 ago but changed our minds after reading this part of the terms and conditions:

"During Horror Camp LIVE! you may be forcibly handled, moved, bound, hooded, chained and subjected to simulated torture by our scareactors. You may witness strong offensive verbal language and graphic simulated sexual activity including the use of sex toys, extreme violence and gore, extended displays of imitation bodily fluids, simulated urination and full nudity.

And

Once the experience begins you will not be able to leave the campsite...

I'm not surprised they have moved on to this. I do think they make it pretty clear what you are getting yourself in for though.

I agree with Birds though, I have die hard horror/gore fan (just like me but In real life I scare too easily) friends who would love this. Just because it would be like being inside a movie. If it was just left to them (and those who read any disclaimers properly) then there probably wouldn't be any problems.

Havent got a problem with this at all.
I wouldnt personally go but wouldnt judge anyone who would, my partner would prob love it.
I have mh problems but im not offended by it.
Some of the best horror films are about asylums!

They've been doing similar in the US for a few years now, article about one guy's experience here.

I think It sounds great and I dont agree with the simulated rape, again because surely if you go in, for it you want the experience.

I watched horror movies last night before bed and happened to have "nightmares" last night. I bloody loved them and didn't wanna wake up.

So if I could get a nightmare/horror movie experience, here I would be there.

Im going on a paranormal tour and a murder mystery over Halloween and I cant wait. I love feeling fear.

I do know someone who went in knowing that it was stuff of a sexually menacing nature.
She's very young and dare I say it, easily led by a crowd and went in after being encouraged and egged on by others. She had to go alone and amongst the things the paper describes, was made to put her fingers on a mans bum hole.
She describes it only as being beyond words and doesn't want to talk about it.

By implying that ape scenarios can be 'harmless fun' belittles to trauma of rape.

Sick puppies is all I have to say

Didn't use the safe word though :/

Not really sure you can complain if you can say stop at anytime but choose not to
