York horror attraction to pull out all the stops for first Halloween since reopening
5:55pm Monday 14th October 2013 in News
A TOURIST attraction is offering free admission to visitors who turn up in Halloween fancy dress.
Last autumn York Dungeon was closed due to flood damage, but during the closure it revamped the attraction, adding new costumes, special effects and displays, ready for a relaunch in March.
The attraction has pulled out all the stops for its first Halloween celebration since reopening.
It is offering free entry to anyone visiting in fancy dress between October 18 and November 3.
Manager Helen Douglas said: “Halloween is always a special time of year at the York Dungeon – it’s like our Christmas – but this year sees our most epic Halloween ever, not least because it’s the first time we’ve celebrated since our re-launch earlier this year.”
She added: “Visitors will be transported back to Samhain, Halloween night, in 47AD, where they will meet the ancient Celts, who believed ghosts of the ancients could rise and walk amongst the living on this sacred night of the year. Guests will need to keep their wits about them however, as even for the most practiced Celts; conjuring spirits is a dangerous business.”
