North East Horror Experience Clinches Top National Accolade

The North East’s yearly fright festival, Psycho Path, is now officially the nation’s finest, having won a significant award.

Located at Lintz Hall Farm, Burnopfield and operating each October, Psycho Path was declared the Best UK Scream Park Event at the annual Scare Awards held at Thorpe Park in Surrey on Tuesday (16th May).

The Scare Awards, part of ScareCON – the largest convention for those involved in the scare industry, saw Psycho Path triumph over competitors from across the UK to secure the top prize. This achievement follows their recognition as the Rising Star of the Year at last year’s event.

Christiano Crawford, one of the directors and creators of Psycho Path, expressed his delight at the rapidly expanding attraction’s national acclaim.

“Competing against the largest scream parks from across the UK and emerging victorious is truly incredible,” he said.

“Knowing that ScareCON reviews over 300 Halloween events before deciding on the winner, it’s a tremendous honour to take the top award.

“Since our inaugural event in 2018, it has developed into a colossal experience. Despite the challenges presented by Covid, we vowed to bounce back, bigger, better, and with a slew of new features.

“In 2022, we ramped up the fright factor, expanded the site, and are eager to introduce even more exciting thrills this year.

“Receiving official recognition as the best in the UK is a dream realised.”

Tickets for this year’s Psycho Path, which commences on Friday, 29th September and then continues every Friday and Saturday until Sunday, 29th October, are now available. Two extra events are scheduled for Monday, 30th October and Tuesday, 31st October.

Among the fresh attractions this year are Dolls House and The Hunt, which will join popular features including iScream, Psycho City, Thunder Dome, Isolation, and Cutthroat Island.
