What exactly is a scare attraction?
In general terms, a scare attraction is a live action, horror themed attraction designed to put you into
the thick of the action in a very scary (but safe) environment. Imagine watching a horror movie with the serial killer stalking
the group of friends, now, imagine you are in that scene with them, feeling what they feel, seeing what they see, this is
what scare attractions are like. You will be walking through various themed sets and scenes and may encounter actors in full
makeup and costumes who ,ight interact with you. There may be lights flashing, smoke filling the air, music and sound
effects ringing out etc.
I know this is a
scare attraction but will it be scary?
yes! The very nature of this attraction is to scare you in a fun way. We want you to feel nervous about going into it, be
terrified while you're walking through it but at the end come out laughing and feel good about the fact you survived your
journey into the unknown.
I know there are
guides/actors inside the attraction, will they grab me?
the guides will interact with you, talk to you and even possibly accidentally touch you but at no time during your experience
inside will anyone grab you or invade your personal space to point where it's no longer a fun experience.
What kind of effects can I expect to encounter inside?
There are multiple effect elements that go into making the experience as immersive as
possible. These may include the use of various lighting rigs, smoke, water, air blasts, sounds and sensory deprivation.
When all these things come together they create a truly amazing effect which makes you believe you are actually inside a very
strange world indeed.
How long does the
attraction last for?
From start to
finish the actual experience inside the attraction will last between 25 and 45 minutes depending on which event you book.
Can I leave the attraction half way
through if I am too scared to carry on?
are several points in the attraction that would allow you to leave. If you felt unable to carry on then you should make one
of the guides aware of this and they will escort you to the nearest exit point but we highly recommend you finish the journey
and experience everything we have to throw at you. If you leave early, there is no refund.
How many go through the scare attraction at once?
We stick to a group size of a maximum of 12 people to ensure you get the most from the attraction but where
possible the group size will be smaller.
Is there any disabled access to the
Stratford Ripper Experience scare attraction?Unfortunately, due to the building we are using, the layout of the attraction
and the very tight corridors inside we cannot accommodate wheelchairs inside. STMO apologise for this in advance.
Who should not attend the attraction?
Due to the extreme nature of the Theatre Of Fear we recommend people under
the age of 15 do not enter. However, if you are under the age of 15 and are with an adult over the age of 18 who is sure you
will be OK then we would allow you to enter providing your adult guardian agreed to this. We also recommend people who have
heart conditions, suffer from epilepsy or who are pregnant do not enter the attraction at all. At times you will be plunged
into darkness, have to manoeuvre through confined spaces and be put into situations that some people would find distressing
so, with this in mind, anyone who suffers from a nervous disposition should not enter the attraction but if you decide to
you do so completely at your own risk.
Please note that the very nature of
a scare attraction means that what one person finds scary another person may laugh at. Experiences are very rarely the same
and any number of issues (from technical failures, different cast members, or just different audience reactions) will change
the experience on your visit. The comments contained in all reviews on this website are those of the reviewer at the time
