    It's a bit daft if they lower the scares, not only does it slightly ruin the experience for the older members of the audience but it's also not necessary, it's a scare maze you should deliver the same experience to all customers, if they're in there then they're in for scares. That's sort of the point.

    All three mazes are in the Towers, there is nowhere near enough room in the cottage for a maze. They are using much more of the west wing and basement areas in the ruins. The cottage was just used for promotional footage.

    I'm sure they could still use a cottage and just put a maze tent on the other side so you enter through the house yet the maze is actually in the show building. It was used at the Halloween Dinner Show last year and the whole ambience around the house worked very well.

    It could work very well as a setting, possibly better than the towers. The only problem I can think of is the space, but it could be solved by adding another temporary building. Could this hint though that it will be cheaper because of the blindfold. It probably isn't going to be easy to merge between the two, but if they can't see, what's the point.

    Taken from yesterday's 8am social media teaser; "a troubled soul that it is believed still haunts the old Alverton Manor, now part of our grand Towers Ruins".

    They may have changed their minds after they realized it ACTUALLY EXISTS.

    Where exactly is this cottage? I'm visiting later this week and wouldn't mind taking a look for myself.

    It can be found behind the Dark Forest, accessible both from the path which goes left before the Towers or the path behind the back of Rita. Exact position can be seen here. :)

    That's woodland clearing, part of the usual gardens maintenance, the path to the Swiss Cottage is always clear.

    The other side of Swiss Cottage is a steep hill, it has no space for a maze tent.

    Final proof :)

    They have been doing that across the whole resort, it's to combat a plant disease (Dutch elm disease I think), a lot of woodland areas in the country have done so as the government has been giving people money to try and halt the spread.

    Trust me all three mazes are in the ruins.

    There's a lot of working take place on that side of the Gardens, not just near the cottage.

    Definitely photoshopped. Shadows aren't right on some of them.
