When your skin crawls, your spine chills to the max and your nerves strain to snap, the last thing you need is to become ghastly guinea pigs in a foul foray into the darkest reaches of terror where YOU are the experiment!

For some gallant and intrepid thrill-seekers, that was the frightening fate that awaited them when masters of horror, Area 51 turned up the dread-o-meter to FULL during a Halloween walk through experience guaranteed to disturb.

An ultimate test of nerves, Area 51’s stripped-down and back-to-basics assault on the senses proved to be highly effective if the screams and howls from members of the public were anything to judge by after they took part in “Boo” staged at the Heart of England Conference and Events Centre in North Warwickshire.

Having assembled at the centre’s entrance, guests were transported into the eerie darkness of the neighbouring woods by truck and greeted by the fanatical Dr. Bozo who ushered them inside one of four abandoned train carriages which were then secured and locked with the nervous passengers left in the dark wondering what was in store.

The bad doctor explained that during their forthcoming journey they would have their fears and anxiety extracted from them to be used as a weapon against fiendish beings who threatened the human race’s very existence.

Each carriage creaked and rumbled around on tracks and had to stop at four separate stations where a catalogue of sensory scares left them shaking in their shoes as they became acquainted with a number of hidden “surprises” hiding in the shadows, nooks and crannies of the darkened, creepy compartments.

One of the carriages’ roof opened suddenly and the occupants were treated to being swamped with a number of horrifying objects.

As their trip of terror continued around the circuit the interactive show of horror was ramped up with a fiendish soundtrack of sonic weirdness which exacerbated the sense of unease and fear.

After the guests had managed to survive their final stop they were forced out into a narrow corridor lined with terrifying dummies, some of whom appeared to animate and chase after them together with guards dressed in nuclear fall-out suits and gas masks accompanied by fireworks.
