The Haunted Manor
October 1st - October 31st
A cool shudder trickles
down your spine. Glancing around nervously, you enter the doors and climb the creaky winding stairs to see spooky portraits
staring at you from behind layers of dust, seemingly penetrating your very being. Cold, hesitant light streams from above,
casting eerie shadows on the walls. As you walk forward, you can't help but feel that someone is following you. Whirling
around, you see nothing but the empty hallway and the faces in the portraits staring at you. 'Turn back' they seem
to say, but you swallow a nervous whimper and continue into ever deeper into the Manor...
Shadows seem to
swirl around your feet, sucking you in. In a burst of panic, you fumble for a light switch. You flip it up and down frantically,
but the room remains spookily shadowed. Fear settles in and deep down you know you're not alone. Something brushes your
back. You turn, but there is nothing. Nothing you can see, that is. Outside you can hear the autumn wind howling, and it almost
sounds like laughter to your panicked mind. A low chuckle breaks your thought process, directly in front of you. You're
being drawn in, into a slumbering world of darkness, and there is no escape..
Every year, the Enchanted Manor
has a spooky makeover for October and turns into a spooky old Haunted Manor house packed with wizarding history.
Will you be able to solve the riddles, answer the questions and count the bizarre number of pumpkins that are spread throughout
With singing pumpkins, roaring fires and flickering candlelight the corridors and rooms come alive
with our own Imagineering of a spooky old manor house at Halloween!
Spread over several levels
with steep and narrow stairways, low beams and doorways, a visit to the Haunted Manor is truly an atmospheric and spooky experience
for all the family.
