Today, Monday 10th September 2018, THORPE PARK Resort hosted a bloody banquet with celebrity zombie Jennifer Metcalfe. After a painstaking transformation into the undead, the Hollyoaks actress tucked into a menu of realistic edible human body parts.

Severed fingers, ears and eyeballs made from chocolate and Red Hot Blood Soup were on the menu to mark the launch of the park’s 17th annual “Fright Nights” season running from 5th to 31st October 2018.

The “cannibal” banquet took top experimental chef Steve Tremblay (personal chef to Simon Cowell and Beyoncé among others) three months to perfect. As part of the feast, 25 litres of red hot soup was served in blood bags, alongside fingers, ears and eyeballs made from 30 kgs of a mixture of milk and white chocolate.

The six new live-action scare mazes and horror zones across THORPE PARK Resort will include AMC’s The Walking Dead: Do or Die – a macabre experience filled with nail-biting jeopardy, Vulcan Peak – an intense nightmarish tribal hell where visitors will need their most primal instincts to survive and a new version of the Blair Witch Maze, situated deep in the woods of the park.

Zones populated by disturbingly real scare actors will include Terror at Amity High and Big Top Showtime, a twist on last year’s hugely popular maze themed around unhinged clowns. There will also be terrifying encounters courtesy of Fanta’s evil vending machine on selected dates.

New for this year will also be Screamplexx 4D where short indie horror films will be shown. Returning favourites for the season include The Walking Dead: Living Nightmare, SAW Alive, Platform 15 and Containment.

The gory body parts served at today’s banquet will be available to purchase exclusively from THORPE PARK Resort on select dates throughout FRIGHT NIGHTS.
