Crowned best UK Scream Park Event at annual Scare Awards held in Thorpe Park, Surrey.
The awards are part of ScareCON, the country’s biggest convention for people involved in the industry.
Psycho Path runs each October at Lintz Hall Farm, Burnopfield.
Christiano Crawford is one of the directors and creators of Psycho Path.
He said: “We were up against the biggest scream parks from all over the United Kingdom, so it’s amazing that Psycho Path has reigned supreme,”
“We know that ScareCON visit more than 300 Halloween events before deciding on the winner, so it is a huge honour to take the top award.
“Since we first launched the event in 2018 it has grown into something of a monster and after the pitfalls of Covid, we vowed to come back bigger and better and with a whole host of new attractions.
“In 2022 we added more scares and increased the size of the site and we’re looking forward to unveiling even more new thrills this year.
“To get the official nod that we are the best in the UK is a dream come true.”
Psycho Path opens on Friday 29 September and then runs every Friday and Saturday until Sunday 29 October.
There is two additional events on Monday 30 October and Tuesday 31 October.
There are new attractions this year at Psycho Path.
