The Yorkshire Scare Grounds Scream Park, on Hell Lane, opens its gates every year and invites visitors to explore its eerie log cabins and haunted building attractions for 16 days leading up to Halloween.

More than 10,000 people are expected to visit the park this year to confront their fears as they’re faced with actor-turned-zombies, vampires, maniacs and evil clowns.

The theme park was opened in 2011 by Fear Masters Entertainment, which runs similar horror attractions across the country.

Chris Walton, creative director, said: “People come to be frightened and that’s what they get and no matter what they tell you, they love it.

“Some people run off petrified and screaming and just never come back, we’ve had that a few times this year.

“We’re really busy at the moment, it’s been our best year yet and we’ve already sold out five nights.”

The terrifying attractions include Club Vampyr’s House of Blood, Jack’s Sick and Twisted Fun House, The Psycho Path Scare Zone and The Darkwood Home For Dinner Maze.

The park will be open every evening until November 1, tickets are priced at £17.
