From Haunted Houses to Zombies: The Most Frightening Scary Horror Games

Do you enjoy the adrenaline rush of being scared out of your wits? Are you a fan of horror movies and looking for a new way to experience fear? Look no further. In this article, we will explore some of the most terrifying scary horror games that will leave you trembling with fear. From haunted houses to zombies, these games will push your limits and keep you on the edge of your seat.

Haunted Houses: A Classic Thrill

If you’re a fan of haunted houses, then horror games that feature eerie mansions or abandoned buildings are sure to provide an exhilarating experience. One such game that comes to mind is “Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.” Set in a dilapidated plantation house in rural Louisiana, this game combines atmospheric horror with intense gameplay. As you navigate through dark corridors and solve puzzles, you’ll encounter grotesque creatures and terrifying jump scares that will keep your heart pounding.

Another notable haunted house game is “Amnesia: The Dark Descent.” In this first-person survival horror game, players find themselves trapped inside an ancient castle with no memory of how they got there. With limited resources and a lurking presence that feeds on fear, this game is guaranteed to make even the bravest players feel vulnerable and terrified.

Zombies: A Never-Ending Nightmare

Zombies have been a staple in horror culture for decades, and scary horror games featuring these undead creatures are always popular among thrill-seekers. One standout title in this genre is “The Last of Us.” Set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by infected humans turned into zombies, this action-adventure game blends intense combat with an emotionally gripping storyline. The realistic graphics and immersive gameplay make every encounter with the infected a heart-pounding experience.

For those seeking a more intense zombie experience, “Resident Evil 2” is a must-play. This remake of the classic survival horror game takes players back to Raccoon City, where a zombie outbreak has turned the population into flesh-eating monsters. With its atmospheric setting and relentless undead enemies, this game will keep you on your toes as you fight for survival.

Psychological Horror: A Mind-Bending Challenge

If you prefer horror games that mess with your mind, then psychological horror games are perfect for you. “Silent Hill 2” is often regarded as one of the best examples of this subgenre. As players control James Sunderland through the foggy town of Silent Hill, they unravel a deeply disturbing story filled with symbolism and psychological torment. The game’s haunting atmosphere and psychological twists will leave you questioning reality long after you’ve put down the controller.

Another mind-bending horror experience is “Layers of Fear.” In this first-person exploration game, players step into the shoes of a disturbed painter as they navigate through a constantly changing mansion. Delving into themes of madness and obsession, this game uses clever storytelling and visual trickery to create an unsettling experience that will keep you guessing until the very end.

Survival Horror: Fight or Flight

For those who enjoy intense gameplay and heart-pounding action, survival horror games provide an adrenaline-fueled experience like no other. “Outlast” is a prime example of this genre. Armed only with a camcorder, players must navigate through an abandoned psychiatric hospital filled with deranged inmates. With no means to defend yourself other than hiding or running away, every encounter becomes a tense battle for survival.

Another standout survival horror game is “Alien: Isolation.” Set fifteen years after the events of Ridley Scott’s iconic film “Alien,” players assume the role of Ellen Ripley’s daughter as she tries to survive aboard a space station infested by one relentless xenomorph. The game’s AI-driven alien enemy constantly adapts to the player’s actions, making every encounter a nerve-wracking game of cat-and-mouse.

In conclusion, if you’re a fan of being scared senseless, these scary horror games will provide an unforgettable experience. Whether you prefer haunted houses, zombies, psychological torment, or survival challenges, there is a game out there that will cater to your darkest fears. So grab your controller and prepare for a night of terror as you dive into these spine-chilling virtual worlds.

Spooky Trails

Erm not sure how to review this without sounding negative because Crocky Trails is actually very good but as a Halloween night I thought it was quite poor considering how expensive it was for what you got. The "spooky" trail was vey disappointing and the kids even said after the 2 min walk round "is that it". Firstly you were taken for a ride on a haunted tractor to the start of the trail. Unfortunately we shared the tractor with a bunch of screaming young teenage girls who were constantly screaming and jumping around with no thought of other kids on their. There was a scary entertainment as we were chugging along until we reached the trail. The trial was literally a 2 min walk with the odd "monster" jumping out on you as you walked round. It wasn't at all impressive and I did expect a lot more. In my opinion the "spooky" trial shouldve been a lot longer with more scare tatics. All the slides and kids stuff was open so the kids enjoyed that bit. An excellent fire work display finished the evening and I would have to say that was the best bit im afraid which is a shame as the kids love Crocky Trails and so do I as I do go on the slides etc. We will go back to Crocky Trails I would think but it wont be to their Halloween night

The Crocky Trail Chester | A Family Review

the crocky trail

This week we had out first family visit to the Crocky Trail Chester with the boys. My husband and I went 10 years ago when we first moved to Chester but despite it being on our door step we hadn’t actually been back with the boys and we have no idea why. This time I decided to write a Crocky Trail Review along with some top tips that will hopefully help you get the most out of your visit.

What is the Crocky Trail?

The Crocky Trail is an outdoor adventure play area situated on the outskirts of Chester. It is divided into three main sections, four if you count the new wonderland area for under 5’s. It is family friendly  has places to eat, toilets and free parking.

The main area 

The main area is the bit where you first enter Crocky Trail. It is here where you will find the main attractions including  lots of slides. Crocky trail is definitely the place to go if you, or your children, love slides as these are some the biggest and fastest I have ever seen.

They have drop slides, small slides, high slides, very, very, very high slides and slides that throw you off into foam pits. This was the tiddlers highlight of the day. He could not get enough of all these slides. I on the other hand was not as impressed. It was here that I thought I was going to have heart failure as our 5 year old climbed to the top of the highest slide and just dropped without any fear at all whilst I stood at the bottom wanting to be sick. The slides are perfectly safe I hasten to add but my goodness do they turn your stomach.

In the main area of Crocky Trail you will also find an array of football related activities and a couple of balance games too. The big’un loved the football goal area the best and stayed in there for ages challenging other children as well as members of staff. The idea is to stand in front of a goal which also has another goal area either side and as people try and shoot you have to dive from the goal into the padded nets and save the ball. It looked a lot more fun than it sounds and is perfect for any football mad kid.

From the main area you can follow the path round to the left and walk into a second area that is similar to the first but instead of slides there are more ride type attractions. Things that make you spin, ninja warrior type activities, a haunted house and a very popular ride called the titanic.

Both of our boys favoured the titanic in this area, which is a ride that gets higher and higher, steeper and steeper and then starts to shake. The aim is to stay seated as long as possible although for the spectators it’s much more fun when people start to drop.

The haunted house also gets good reviews from older children. It is pitch black and contains moving objects and although both boys were brave enough to try it neither of them would go on again and I think that it was maybe a little to scary for them, especially the 5 year old.

The actual Crocky Trail

After we had completed both these areas several times we took to the third area which is the actual Crocky Trail itself. This is a circular path that has a number of obstacles dotted about. Some are easier than others, such as thin bridges and stepping stones. Some are more fun and require less concentration such as the swings and the water blaster.  And then there are those that are more difficult such as the chain crossing. All of the obstacles are great fun but don’t worry as the whole of the Crocky Trail route can be accessed by everyone and if you get to an obstacle you can’t complete, or simply don’t want to try, that is fine you can just walk round it. You wont get stuck.

Top Tips for the Crocky trail near Chester 

Only take placid dogs that are use to noise.

You can take dogs as long as they remain on a lead at all times. I think this is great however, I would point out that the park is noisy with lots of people and the mechanics of the rides and we saw one dog getting very distressed, shaking and barking at everyone and everything. So please consider this before you take your dog with you. We chose to leave Buddy at home and I am grateful that we did.

Take a picnic

The Crocky Trail encourages you to take your own food and they have a number of picnic areas dotted about that you can use, including one under cover should the weather turn. You can leave the park easily to retrieve lunch from the car and go back in the park to eat it too which saves you dragging it round with you all day. If you don’t want to take a picnic that is also fine as they do have two cafes and an ice cream stall.

Upgrade the small kids tickets

If you have a young child they can get in cheaper and be given a red wristband, however if you have an adventurous little one I would recommend asking for the upgrade and paying the extra for a yellow band as there is a lot that only yellow bands can use.

Allow at least 3 hours.

You will need at least three hours to fully enjoy the park although to be honest you could easily stay all day.

The only thing left to say is have an awesome time!

(We were gifted the tickets in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.)

I am a traveller, mother and blogger. We love to go on adventures (big and small, near and far) and strive to show our children how amazing and beautiful the world is! I caught the travel bug many moons ago and despite having three little adventurers, I still suffer from "itchy" feet. We love the great outdoors and one another. Come and join the fun :)
