TAYTO PARK, Ireland’s favourite theme park and zoo located in Ashbourne, Co. Meath, is excited to announce two brand new spooky attractions for Halloween – Ghost Hunters for children and Morbid Manor for teens and adults.
By day, parents and children can immerse themselves in Ghost Hunters, a bewitching interactive children’s adventure where guests will become ghost hunters and enter an old abandoned manor to discover the strange happenings inside.
On entry, children will receive a torch and will make their way through the manor with a ghostly guide to solve a series of clues to gain entry into the next room. Throughout the walkway, the mansion’s ghostly residents will slowly reveal themselves and the mystery behind the manor will be solved.
Children can also enjoy free face-painting, the zoo and other attractions around the park before taking part in Halloween arts & crafts. The World of Raptors, Tayto Park’s new birds of prey arena show, is also open and has daily shows at 2.30pm.
And when the sun goes down, the freaks come out to play, so visitors should prepare for a thoroughly frightful evening!
As darkness descends over Tayto Park, an eerie atmosphere comes over the carnival rides and guests should beware of the creeps, ghouls and clowns roaming outside the park after night fall.
The spooky abandoned mansion is transformed into Morbid Manor, the ultimate immersive horror experience with 13 actors in full costume. Willing guests will pass through various rooms and secret passageways and meet the inhabitants of the haunted manor, both dead and alive.
Guests can then catch a night ride on The Cú Chulainn Coaster, Air Racer, Rotator, Windstar & Endeavour before experiencing the terrifying 5D horror movie, Fun House Express.
**Morbid Manor is a high impact, intense scare experience, with theatrical scenes to further convey the narrative.**
