A petition against the Asylum maze with over 5500 signatures was handed to Thorpe Park today.
Campaigners who believe the Asylum maze stigmatizes mental illness have signed a petition for it to be renamed, rethemed or removed.
Katie Sutton, along with some of the petition signers, went into the park to hand over the petition today.
She said: “There were 6 people at the event, which was excellent turnout for the middle of the working day at short notice – I was dressed as a skeleton, and we also had a black cat, but the overwhelming scene was that of the “mental patient” – people who just came dressed as they do usually, to demonstrate that people with mental illnesses aren’t generally scary chainsaw-wielding maniacs!”
Katie Sutton Tweeted that the petition was ‘graciously accepted’ by the Surrey theme park.
