Psycho Path presents Fear Ground which will once again be back at the 700 acres site at Lintz Hall Farm, Burnopfield, County Durham, this October, with an all new look and even more shocks than before.

And this year everyone from scaredy cats to hardened thrill seekers can decide what appeals to them the most, as each activity will come with its own “scare score” which highlights its fear factor.

Tickets are now on sale for the event, which will take place every Friday and Saturday in October, culminating in a bumper finale event at Halloween.

And organisers are already making contingency plans to ensure that whatever social distancing might still be in place by the autumn can be accommodated.

“We want people to be scared but for all the right reasons,” said Christiano Crawford, one of the directors and creators of Psycho Path.

“Which is why we have put in place a whole host of options we can choose from, depending on what the Government allows at the time. We have the luxury of a huge outdoor site, which makes it much easier for us to adapt.”

Although the full programme is under wraps at the moment, the aim this year is to increase the number of mazes which have been particularly popular at previous events.

Tickets have just gone on sale and range from £12 to £26 for the Halloween event and can be bought at
