Farmaggedon 2015 – frighteningly fresh
Two years ago Farmaggedon to me was the best thing since sliced bread. Last year I felt it kept up to the high standards of 2013, but failed to bring anything really new to the table. This year Farmaggedon has come back with a vengeance! It felt fresh, has an all new attraction, and is going to take the 2015 Halloween season by storm.
Terror on the Farm
A labyrinth of corridors, crypts, caverns…..and many of your worst nightmares. Terror on the Farm is a firm favourite at Farmaggedon. I will never tire of this set, which rivals Manormortis at Scare Kingdom in production value. One thing immediately noticeable to us when experiencing this first maze is the incredible costumes and make-up this year, which far surpasses that of previous years. I also feel as though a small portion of the maze has been changed, which if I’m right, even such a small change makes it new and exciting for those of us who have visited year after year.
The Meat Locker
Malachi Throne believes he has found a way to achieve immortality through the slaughter and consumption of human flesh. Malachi Throne is dying to ‘MEAT’ you! The Meat Locker is back for it’s second year at Farmageddon, but this year had a fresher feeling about it. Despite not actually running at any point in the maze itself, we still came out feeling out of breath, and then of course when we were confronted with chainsaws, we ran!
Project Cloudburst was a covert biological weapons programme that only our government and military knew about…but not anymore! Two months ago a toxic by-product of the experimental weaponry leaked out into the local water system and began to infect all those in the area. Crazed mutant personnel, medical staff and lab techs now prowl ‘Contagion’ on their hunt for anything living. Contagion replaced my favourite maze for the last two years, so I was worried that if it wasn’t good, it would bring my whole night down. I needn’t have worried…. Contagion brings in a completely new concept that I have never seen at a scare attraction before. Before entering, you are provided with 3D glasses, and the UV paint covering the attraction suddenly appears to lift away from it’s surface, creating some strange 3D trippy experience. This, combined with camouflaged costumes makes this by far the jumpiest maze. Scare actors can literally be stood in front of you, and you don’t see them until they move. It also includes the vortex tunnel, which despite being hilarious to watch people in year after year, now appears to be even more difficult to traverse with the added confusion of the 3D glasses. This maze also had the best music, with late 90’s hard rock blasting out as you make your way through the twists and turns, this was by far the most fun of all the attractions.
The infected of Contagion crave internal organs and the marrow from your bones. Those who venture in are never seen…whole…again! The ‘Contagion’ was locked down, but not quickly enough; the mutants were not all contained, it is believed that some survive on the outside, scavenging the countryside. There is a nightly curfew and the military are doing their best to eliminate anything that moves, in the woods, in the fields and in the crops….
They may need you to reinforce them at…Zombie Outlaw.
Zombie Outlaw is a completely new attraction for 2015. It is an interactive trailer ride through the fields and wastelands at Farmaggedon. The escaped mutant zombies from Contagion roam the farmland, and your mission is to annihilate the hoards. You will board a ZOP Wagon (Zombie Outlaw Protection Wagon) which is armed with the latest bio-shock weapons and head out into the darkness to hunt Zombies! The only kill shot is a head shot, so “Lock and Load Soldier” and save mankind.
Zombie Outlaw is a great addition to this year’s event. You’re completely safe, you don’t get shot at, but the ride is good fun, and the soundtrack (AC/DC) is amazing! The actors here are fantastic, and the innuendos aplenty.
I think it’s safe to say that Farmegeddon might well be back on top in my eyes, and this will surely be a hard one to beat this year!Thanks for reading!
