After winning awards for best newcomer at Scarecon (yes that is a real event), Fear Factory is back in Darwen with two paranoia-inducing mazes for you and your mates to tip-toe around as you try and hide behind each other. The first maze is Mr Blooms Haunted House, a house hiding a dark web of debauchery, torture and bloodcurdling massacres. Maze two is a rather unassuming bread factory, where after dark, the chimney smoke turns black and a putrid smell fills the air. Discover the secrets of the factory at your own risk, just don't say you weren't warned!

When: Saturday 29th October 2022

Where: Roller Jam in Birmingham

Prepare your favourite track and plug it into the walkman, as this event is going to lift you up Vecna style. But that being said, we want to make sure you're there to see another day, and you know, not broken like a twig by an upside-down by a Zyghon rip-off. Unlike Vecna, this Halloween roller-skating bonanza by Rollerjam will have you running right towards the weird-looking 'costumes', as it promises to bring you right back to the 80s Roller rinks, with a modern, upside-down twist. So, if you're a wiz on the skates and a fan of the Netflix show, or just a Metallica fan who wants to know what all the fuss is about, then this is the event for you this Halloween.
