Top Events For All The Family This Halloween
Posted on September 25, 2015
With the growing variety of Halloween activities available throughout the country, camping gives you the opportunity to experience them all. Whether you are jumping from place to place to get your fill of the scariest events, or are settling in one place for a relaxed weekend of trickery; we have compiled a list of the must-see events so you can make the most of All Hallows Eve.
Hellgate Winter Gardens
If you missed out on this sell-out attraction last year, fear not (at least, not yet). The Zombie Apocalypse event returns this year and is bigger and scarier than ever! From visiting the Trick or Treat Theatre, to getting involved in the more active Laser Zombie Run Zone: there is a ghoulish treat for everybody. Early bird tickets are on sale right now, so run – do not walk!
For the ultimate of shocks, FearFest has to be your best bet. With live actors and special effects, this 60 minute experience will leave you quivering and jumping at even the slightest noise. With the event making its debut appearance, who knows what will be in store for you when you sign up? What we can tell you, is that participants will be given the opportunity to experience the death-wire. What that is exactly, we will leave to your imagination.
Little Church of Horrors
If the kids have alternate plans, why not get yourself down to the Little Church of Horrors and experience a burlesque show with a scary spin? You can enjoy six staggering acts ranging from Scarlett Daggers, straight through to Carmen Mon Oxide. We wouldn’t sit too close if we were you, who knows what horrors they have in store for their next victim!
Pumpkin Carving Day
If being scared really isn’t your thing but you still want to get involved, why not spend the day carving your own pumpkin? Create your own ghostly ghoul and position it outside your house to really set the Halloween atmosphere. Get the kids involved by having their faces painted as Casper the ghost in preparation for the night’s Halloween festivities.
