We were invited along to the VIP night at Psychopath, Lintz Hall Farm, Burnopfield last night. Not knowing what to expect we were very excited to see the build up on facebook and also the price tag of £23 per ticket (£50 per VIP) With that pricing we knew it was going to be something special!
Being huge horror addicts and someone who doesn’t scare easily, both myself and my sister were prepared for whatever may be in store. We both love a good jump scare and have gory horror memorabilia around our homes. This was a night we had looked forward to for a while!
We arrived at 6pm for doors opening and were greeted by a lady at the gates who asked if we were staff then seemed completely perplexed when we said we were there to review. She shrugged it off and told us to go park with all the other cars which we duly did.
We wandered over to the main entrance and waited a further 20 minutes for the doors to finally open. It was still light and a nice night so this was not a problem.
Once inside we were snaked around stalls to a table where our names were checked, wrist bands given and a card with printed plan (no details of what things were etc but we were just going to wander and find out anyway)
We bought a drink each, £11 for 2 Koppaberg lagers and proceeded to stand at the side against a cable wheel style table. The entertainment came out and to say it was a little baffling was an understatement. 2 girls in old fashioned dresses walked up and down the hall numerous times and for some reason a one armed boxer thought it was cool to beat up his round card girl and vice versa. It was really bizarre as it wasn’t spooky just violent!
We wandered out side not knowing what to expect and hadn’t realised we could take our drinks with us. It was all open air and a little like Midsommer with open fire pits and large tee pee area.
Isolation was outside and this is a section of rooms you go in by yourself but the only one that was free when we were was filled with smoke and having Asthma meant it was unadvisable to go in – even though we were told ‘it will be fine, go on’…. erm no thank you!
The main room soon filled with smoke too which means it was getting a little too much for us and having seen all we needed to we decided to leave.
We asked 2 security guards and a person with a walkie talkie where the exit was and they all said back at the entrance. NOPE!
We walked back to the entrance and was told twice it was outside. By this point patience was wearing thin and we found the man who oversaw people coming in. He said you go out of the back of the building and walk around until you come to the car park.
We did this and it was all blocked off. Luckily both the man himself and a lady came walking towards us which I presumed was to tell us which way to get out. He looked at the fence and said ‘oh its blocked off’ to which I said yes and we are still looking to get out.
HE BLANKED US COMPLETELY!
If he had said oh yes i just told you to go down here sorry lets find a way out this would have been fine but to ignore us and walk straight past as though we hadnt even just said we were still there was a complete joke!
He proceeded to hop the fence and told an elderly gentleman who approached he was going to the car park. This gentleman was i presume the owner of the farm as he opened the gates for us and let us out. Apologising and saying that if we couldn’t get back into the carpark via the first right we would have to walk back to the main road down a dark stretch of field and come back through via the main entrance. Yup you guessed it, we had to walk all the way round the fields.
This was a complete and utter mess and having no exit just yelled accident waiting to happen. Hell I have seen enough horror films to know that things go wrong at these kind of events and I am just hoping they realised their error and sorted out an exit for those leaving behind us.
As you can imagine we drove away completely bewildered by what had just happened considering all of the raving reviews on social media. Unfortunately they dropped the ball last night and it showed.
We were invited along for the purpose of a review. All my reviews are honest and genuine and unfortunately they aren’t always positive.
For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
