So I managed to find some time to head on down to Thorpe Park yesterday and managed a go on Saw:Alive. Overall, I was highly impressed with the themeing throughout the maze. The bathroom looked like it was lifted straight out the film and the urine smell was a nice(!) addition. All of the traps in the maze were as honest to the film as possible, the last scene from saw 6 was probably my favourite (merry go round with guns attached). The only problem I had with the maze was, well, it wasn't terrifying. It wasn't even scary. The actors in the traps did their best to try and achieve scares, but there wasn't much they could do apart from scream once or twice. Only encountered one actor in the infamous pig mask.. and they just stood there as you walked past. Didn't jump put from a dark corner or anything.
Don't get me wrong, it's a nice addition, but I think it has been marketed wrong. It's more of a themed walkthrough than a live action horror maze. Maybe It was just a case of bad timing with lack of actors, will have to make a trip back again during Halloween to see if it has improved!
