For those who may not have seen, SouthParks has a review from the first day of Howl'o'ween 2018.

I visited on the first day of the event on Saturday 13th and have to say I was quite impressed. Creepy Caves surprised me with its intensity, and easily beats some of Thorpe's offering! There were sections of the maze which were genuinely disorientating, and meant I was never quite sure where the scare were coming from next. Curse of the Lost Tomb was fun, not the scariest, but that is to be expected for its target audience. Trick and Treat Woods was a nice surprise and contained a range of interesting characters, although was better after dark.

I was also impressed with the live stage show in the Gruffalo Arena - it featured some great dance routines, and the male lead had some particularly impressive vocals. Perhaps the only thing missing was some roaming entertainments to add some atmosphere in areas like Market Square.

I would have to agree we went for Howl-o-ween and we thought they had got the balance right. Like you say the show was great along with the Creepy Caves. I went through with my son and his mate although they where scared out of their skins, they did admit to really enjoying it, and when we left around the exits they did have roaming actors interacting with the crowds even blacked hooded caped demon actors that were joining in with the kids flossing with was quite amusing. Well done Chessington this year!

As posted on SouthParks social media, Chessington have begun advertising audition dates for Howl’o’Ween 2019.

The role description seemingly reveals that a new scare attraction, Spyders, will join this year’s line-up. It also suggests that Creepy Caves: Unearthed will be back for a third year, while the fate of Curse of the Lost Tomb and Trick or Treat Wood remains to be seen.

As reported by SouthParks News, Creepy Caves Unearthed is set to have an extreme makeover this year, after Chessington World of Adventures Resort updated their website to offer a new VIP version of the popular maze.

Operating after the Resort closes, Creepy Caves After Dark will lead only the bravest adventurers on a 12 minute hands-on terrifying experience. Promising the most intense Creepy Caves yet, the offering gives warnings similar to those found at Thorpe Park Resort, including allowing actors to touch adventurers and that groups may be split up to have people face sections of the attraction alone. Prices for the attraction begin at £10 per person, and guests recommended to be 13 years or older.

Will you brave Creepy Caves After Dark at this year's Howl'o'ween?

It’s a very interesting thing! Out of all the places to bring back something like this, I am hugely surprised it’s Chessington. I suspect it will be a bit like going through Thorpe Park’s mazes in normal mode, but it’s still great to see a more adult version of Creepy Caves happening. I may have to squeeze in a visit to a Chessington
