A special treat to an amusement park can be a great way to finish half-term and with lots of brilliant offers and promotional vouchers available online a family treat can be great fun at a reasonable price.

Many of Britain’s best amusement parks are brought to us by Merlin Entertainment, who put on great entertainment and events across the country. With something for everyone this Halloween here are my favourite…

Alton Towers A local attraction here in Staffordshire Alton Towers is one of Britain’s favourite theme parks and never seems to fail at a Halloween spectacular. The ‘Scarefest’ has become iconic with Alton Towers’ fans who visit from all over the country to see the park in all its Scarefest glory.

Daredevils can tour the Terror of the Towers to discover what lies beneath whilst those who love rollercoasters can ride them into the dark evening. For family entertainment I’ve been told that live shows are great addition to a Scarefest day at Alton Towers.

All and all a great way to celebrate Halloween- most visitors dress up so vampire teeth may be required.

Top Tip: I receive lots of promotional e-mails and often Alton Towers discount are featured. Search the web to find a deal which will make your day extra special.

I’ve had some wonderful times exploring Britain’s Ultimate Castle and find that visiting with children is a fantastic way for them to become interested in history and heritage as they are such memorable days out.

At Halloween those old age myths and castle characters come to life as families can enjoy a tour around the castle and, for those brave enough tour The Castle Dungeons where the dark and most frightening historic events took place. Visit the Owl Show or take a ghost tour. Whatever your choice there is plenty of scary treats for Halloween visitors.

Top Tip: Give yourself plenty of time to explore the grounds as there really is lots to see.


The Dungeons- Expect to be scared as the Dungeons’ pride themselves on offering terrifying experiences to their brave guests. Undoubtedly Halloween will offer more screams than normal. 

The London Dungeons have become even more gruesome in perfect time for Hallows Eve as  ‘Stringy Jack’ will be roaming the dungeons dark corridors ready to petrify you at any moment- you’ve been warned.

london_dungeon_sMy visit to The London Dungeon a couple of years ago was brilliant- so much so that I’d highly recommend it to friends and family. Featuring live actors who make the dungeons as authentic as possible the London Dungeons fantastically bring gruesome pastimes to life. Re-enacting the terror of the plague, Jack the Ripper and the great folklore of Bloody Mary, the Dungeons enter deep into horrible history.

Accompanied by rides, special effects and fantastic acting the Dungeons really are a great day out and extremely fitting for a Halloween treat.

Top Tip: The Dungeons are situated throughout UK and Europe including London, Edinburgh, York, Blackpool, Hamburg and Amsterdam. So there is plenty of places to capture the Dungeon experience.
