Halloween is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate this spooky holiday than to take the kids to a great haunted event?
You’ll find plenty of events being hosted around the UK. So, if you want to make the most of Halloween this October, or you just want to take your mind off Brexit, here you’ll discover some great spooky ideas the family will love.
Thorpe Park Fright Nights
Dubbed as the UK’s premier Halloween event, Fright Nights at Thorpe Park run from September 28th to November 3rd. There’s seven scare mazes and spooky attractions and you’ll get to experience the unique atmosphere of a theme park at night. Just a couple of the experiences on offer include The Walking Dead and Blair Witch. You will need to book tickets for this event and there’s the option to upgrade to a short spooky break at the park.
Halloween Week at Warwick Castle
Every year, Warwick Castle hosts a fantastic Halloween week. This year, the event takes place from 19th October through until 3rd November. There’s set to be a Wondrous Witches show, and the crew from the show “Paranormal Encounters” will be there to film a Warwick Castle special. You’ll also get to experience Falconers Quest, which involves a live show with 50 birds of prey. This is sure to be an unforgettable experience you won’t want to miss.
If you fancy travelling a little further afield, Edinburgh Dungeons are hosting a great Halloween themed event. There are even adult only late-night tours which are described as darker, bolder and scarier. The spooky events here run from October 5th to November 3rd. If you’re taking a road trip, remember to ensure you have a reliable car to get you there.
Alton Towers Scarefest
Scarefest is a popular Halloween attraction at Alton Towers. This year there’s set to be three new great attractions. You’ll be able to experience the new Alton Towers Dungeon, along with two new spooky mazes known as Darkest Depths and The Attic. A lot of the park’s rollercoasters will also be open for guests to use, giving you a unique late-night theme park experience. Like the Thorpe Park Halloween experience, you will need to book the Alton Towers Scarefest event.
These are just a small selection of the Halloween events running throughout the UK this year. No matter how far you’re looking to travel, you’re sure to find an exciting and spooky Halloween event near you. Remember to ensure the attraction you’re heading to caters to the age range of your children. Some are purely designed for older kids in mind and may be unsuitable for younger audiences.
