High Street,


DOOMSDAY is a scream-park event with 3 interactive attractions intended to entertain and scare you.
Our attractions (often called Mazes) are called TEMPVM CLAVDII, THE WITCHFINDER GENERAL (split into 2 sections- HOPKINS and THE VERDICT) and ..ALL THE KINGS MEN..
TEMPVM CLAVDII depicts the burning of the Temple of Claudius in AD61 and contains smoke and fire effects, strobe lighting and has areas of uneven flooring, steps and restricted-height sections requiring guests to crawl or duck.
THE WITCHFINDER GENERAL- HOPKINS takes us back to the time of witches in the 17th century. It contains smoke effects, strobe lighting, graphic scenes and uneven surfaces.
THE VERDICT is our extra attraction requiring the purchase of an add-on ticket. It is a WORLD-FIRST attraction and is designed to push you towards fear as never before. This attraction contains extra restrictions- please view the VERDICT page before purchasing a ticket.
..ALL THE KINGS MEN.. explores the twisted links between Colchester, fairytales and the Victorian obsession with doll-houses. This attraction contains smoke, stroboscopic lighting, steps and crawl-spaces.
