So, back from round 1, thought it time to write a review! [CONTAINS SPOILERS!]Entrance
Fantastically themed, excellent music, and not too busy! Costumed staff members did the countdown and let us in at 10.General theming
Pumpkins everywhere, the smaller ones real, the larger ones fake. Dressed up characters could be seen roaming the par before noon (when the Halloween attractions open). Even the Bubbleworks music seemed spookier!Vampire
Did this as the first ride, and not again.
ride experience was great, not much done for spooktacular but later we saw they had directed their efforts elsewhere (read below!) only queued 10mins so pretty happy.Dragon's Fury
Was really surprised at how quiet this was! Did it 4 times and queued no longer than half an hour each time. Was just cold enough to get good air in your face, but not that it froze youTuk Tuk Turmoil
Wouldn't normally bring this up in a Halloween review, but there's is SERIOUSLY something wrong with it! Queued a mere 5mins. During the ride before, a woman signalled for the ride to stop. When it's stopped the woman said her car wasn't working. She was taken off and they set the ride off again. Our turn. Cars so slow it was AWFUL could have been queueing for a decent ride! Check before entering the queue!The mystery of Hocus Pocus Hall
Went in at 12, in hope that we'd get a short queue. It only takes 8 people at a time, so as a two, myself and my mother were called forward immediately.
You enter see an over enthusiastic historian who talks about a mystery emerald. During this, he finds the emerald, and a door opens. You go through with him. You follow in the dark until you reach a vault door (*gasp* this is Stubb's vault!) he directs you through, but he backs out. You follow it down and get stopped by cleopatra. She is angry you're there, but says if you survive the horrors to follow, you can leave unharmed. She allows you to go by. You enter the dark jungle. Yo see a man. He tells you you're in great danger and tells you to take the shortcut. On you go, into an ocean world, stopped by a pirate. He tells you that he can be trusted, and you follow him. He takes you to a room where he announces he will kill you
when he pulls one of you forward, a man thrusts back a curtain, and says "quick in here!" You follow him, and he turns out to be Arthur Stubbs (
) he shows you the way out (mirror maze), and done.Haunting in the hollows
THEY TOUCH YOU! I was outraged, they allowed a 5 year old in, and assured his parent that the actors wouldn't touch us. IT'S A LIE. Do NOT take under 10s/11s in here!
Despite problems, overall a great day!
RIDE COUNT: 16
See you all after part two (Wed 30th)
