The controversial attraction has sparked a row on Thorpe Park's Facebook page, with one user posting:
A Halloween attraction at Thorpe Park has come under fire for stigmatising mental illness. 'The Asylum horror maze' has been part of 'Fright Night' at the park in Surrey for eight years.
Mental health campaigners say having actors chase people around 'The Asylum' pretending to be patients is offensive.
A theme park has created a treatment plan for people with a fear of rollercoasters. Thorpe Park in Surrey said the move followed a spate of panic attacks and an increase in the numbers of people seen sweating and hyperventilating after going on a new ride.
The treatment plan will use a range of psychological tools and techniques that have been adapted from those used on the Virgin Atlantic ‘Flying Without Fear’ Course.
The course has helped over 25,000 people, including actress Whoopi Goldberg, socialite Jemima Khan and Coronation Street’s Antony Cotton, overcome their fear of flying.
