Yorkshire Scare Grounds 2017 offer a Halloween adventure you'll never forget

Forget pumpkins and rubbish Dracula costumes - this daddy of haunted houses is for thrillseekers after a real scare

A haunted slaughterhouse, a zombie-infested battlefield and the last hotel you'd ever want to stay in are among the spine-tingling thrills at the Yorkshire Scare Grounds this Halloween.

The popular attraction, which puts your standard haunted house to shame, uses computer generated images (CGI), moving sets and live actors.

The background stories to each of the five scary attractions - all included in the price - are enough to bring you out in a cold sweat.

This year's five main attractions are:

Slaughterhouse

An abattoir with blood drenched passageways. Beware of the Body Collector he wants to sell your organs.

Can anyone visit?

The Yorkshire Scare Grounds are not recommended for children under 12 and under-16s will only be admitted if they are accompanied by a responsible adult. The park is not recommended for pregnant women, people with heart conditions, epilepsy, claustrophobia, asthmatic or those who are scared of things that go bump in the night.

What will I experience?

Disorienting and distracting sounds, lights, strobe lights, lasers, fog and smoke, motion, scent, wind, water, heat and other theatrical special effects. You may be required to bend, crouch, crawl, jump, dash and walk through parts of the Scare Grounds, sometimes over moving uneven or unstable flooring or ground. Some parts of the attraction are designed to move you, and you will interact with characters. At times, you will be in and move through very dark, pitch black and confined spaces.

What if I am genuinely too scared?

If at any point you find the horror too much, notify the nearest actor and you will be escorted back to the public area. Phew!

Can I stay with my friends?

Visitors will be divided into groups of 12 or less to tour the park — the maximum group size is 12 people, and groups are advised to stay together throughout the attraction.

What should I wear?

The park is outdoors, and visitors are asked to dress accordingly, as if they were going for a walk on an October evening. Flat shoes are essential, as you will be walking outdoors on uneven surfaces through woodland, which may even be wet or muddy. Fancy dress is not allowed.

Can I bring alcohol?

Alcohol is not permitted and intoxicated visitors will be turned away for their own safety. Food and drink is available in the park’s food court.
