FANS of ‘Evans Haunted House’ are being promised a totally different experience and more extreme frights as the scare attraction returns for its third year.

Craig Davies, owner of Lock Down Escape, has again teamed up with make-up specialist Gill Johnson, whose previous work includes a promotion for The Walking Dead, and Quasar’s Karen Brierley for the Halloween event from October 25 to 31. A team of more than 100 people, including actors, make-up artists, behind the scenes crew, designers, set builders and decorators are busy transforming Evans House for the immersive experience.

Warrington Guardian:

This year there is a nod to Warrington with a twisted Alice in Wonderland theme complete with a cannibal tea party.

There will also be nightmare inducing rooms paying homage to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Jigsaw from the Saw movies.

Craig, an actor who has previously appeared in Peaky Blinders, uses his industry contacts to make the experience as authentic as possible. He is also being helped by students at Warrington and Vale Royal College.

Warrington Guardian:

The former William Beamont High and Bridgewater High pupil said: “This experience at Evans Haunted House is still is a one of a kind, as we mix the elements of a scare attraction with an escape room.

“We have 20 rooms and 12 different themes in which people will either walk through or be locked in with their worst nightmares and will have to solve puzzles or crack clues or riddles to escape what is lurking in the rooms with them.

Warrington Guardian:

“As soon as the doors open at 7pm it’s such a rush to see and hear the things you wouldn’t normally expect all in one building. All night, all I hear is customers screaming and some even crying. That’s when I know we have done the job right.”
