"My Bloody Valentine was billed as the Park's 5 star attraction for this year's event, supposedly the scariest of all the attractions for 2013. Many have subsequently reported this maze (housed in the ex-Experiment 10 building) to be a disappointment, particularly compared to what stood before it - but my experience was conversely impressive. Gone were the solitary confinement cupboards from Experiment 10, but in was realistic mine-shaft themeing and a intimidating threat in the form of Harry Warden, the murderous miner from the film. The maze was nicely set up by a tour guide telling the group that Harry had long since died, so everyone's safety was assured - only for Harry and his pickaxe to appear from the corner and chase everyone into the main maze itself.
The maze worked because of the ever-building anticipation that an actor was about to jump out at you, and the many places the maze afforded actors to hide and conceal themselves. Here, less was more as the lack of audio actually served to heighten the tension. The old solitary confinement cupboards particularly produced a labyrinth of passageways (most that resulted in dead-ends) for guests to find themselves confused by. There were some nice scenes replicated from the film, including the hospital and forest, and towards the end of the maze there was again a nervous anticipation, when walking alone through the exit, that Harry Warden would suddenly reappear. True to expectation - the finale involved Harry appearing from nowhere, turning his headlight on into guests eyes, and running at them, banging his pickaxe against the walls."
"My Bloody Valentine has been built in the temporary containers that used to hold Experiment 10 but you wouldn't know it from the outside as the external theming completely hides this fact.
Once inside the scenes may seem a bit random if you haven't seen the film (ie the bodies in the hospital) but once inside the dark mine, the scares and effects are plentiful and the attention to detail in some of the scenes is impressive.
The trick solitary confinement doors of Experiment 10 have been removed but being a free flow maze people are still encouraged to go in different directions at times, and once again our group got split up with most of us walking through the rest of the show virtually on our own.
There were lots of actors through the maze but what felt missing was the use of the iconic Harry Warden character - we only saw him once on our run through, with most of the other actors being either his victims or more regular looking miners. Perhaps a few more instances of Harry in that gas mask would have given us the impression that he really was an unstoppable force out to get us.
In summary - a well themed maze with some effective scares."
"We then ventured into the maze and got told to be careful about driving home due to the storm before being told the story of Harry Warden. I’ve seen the remake of this film so kind of knew what to expect but other people in my group were a bit freaked by the first scene. We keep checking all the dark corners and actors made use of these very well. This was the only maze which made me scream (due to actors jumping out of darkness and right into my face). We escaped harry and carried on with our day."
"We've just got out of My bloody Valentine, an first impressions were impressive.
Themeing again was very good, lots of actors and a fair bit of segregation from the group."
What an incredible personal review to receive!
"massive, oodles of kudos to you, lovely. Some of the best scareactor crowd work this weekend I've seen in my years on the scene

"you were a great actor at thorpe park this year. One of the best thorpe park has ever had in my opinion :) well done, keep it up, hopefully see you next year?"

"Now this was more like it. Having been consistently the worst maze of the last three Fright Nights, The Curse skyrocketed to the top this year. It really was excellent. Actors were EVERYWHERE. They were well-hidden, organised and absolutely determined to make you remember them. I literally had a good nine or ten seperate actors individually trail and torment me through the maze. The guy who sets about your legs from the floor as you try to avoid another actor made everyone hysterical in their own separate way. I was laughing all the way through, as is my response to these kind of attractions, but it was definitely a good thing. 9.5/10"

"The Curse is now the second oldest maze in the park but fortunately shows no sign of ageing gracefully! This year, the whole maze was extremely dark, filled with fog throughout and crawling with lively actors that just seemed to keep appearing out of nowhere. If anything, it was too dark in places, as it was impossible to see some of the well themed rooms throughout but then, when the scares are coming this thick and fast - that's a minor gripe."
"Conversely, The Curse this year re-established itself as a worthwhile attraction in the Fright Nights lineup. Often criticised (by this website, for one) for feeling too temporary, too cheap, too gimmicky, this year The Curse introduced an excess of smoke (borrowed from The Asylum, perhaps?) and a rather lively cast to great effect. For the first time ever, it was hard to see your way around The Curse, which created many new scare opportunities from the cast jumping out of nowhere in your face. The actors also made better use of the many portholes placed around the set as places to jump out of or lean through and scare guests unexpectedly.
The Curse still needs a showstopper ending, but to its credit generated more scares this year than any other. Can we have abundant smoke in both Asylum and Curse next year, though?"
"Now The Curse... I've heard a lot of negative reviews about this, my expectations were pretty low. I was blown away! I led the maze and there were actors round every corner, I liked that some actors didn't just run at you, but just sat there at the end of a corridor looking at you, this creeped me out because I had to slowly walk towards them! The strobe scene was effective because it was short and messed up my vision, I was then caught off guard by the classic running actor. The maze seemed to last a long time and being in there you wouldn't think your in a tent. The woman dangling from the ceiling terrified me and in the end I was pushed into her because I hesitated."
"Dare I say it, The Curse was easily the best maze of the night! The structure/theming seemed pretty solid, there was a decent use of effects and the acting was fab A great team of actors that worked together really well to get scares out of each group three or four times. Really good job on The Curse this year."
