Valentines isn’t usually a time where scares get thought about. Its about love, romance and couples. For single people, and those who don’t do the whole lovey dovey bullshit, its a bit of a crap time. Luckily for you, Valentines also means scares. Yep, you heard me corrrectly, SCARES! A couple of scare attractions and scream parks open for the love season.
SCARE KINGDOM SCREAM PARK
Of course these guys open for Valentines. Their Valenterror event has been running for a couple of years now and has always provided a spooky alternative to date night. This years event is on Saturday 15th February and will host three attractions. MONSTERmortis – Blackout, Body Snatchers – Roo Pauline’s Dungeons and Drag Queens and Psychomanteum – SPEED Date! MONSTERmortis will once again play home to their traditional Valentines glow stick maze (Yes that’s all you’re getting about it).
