Haunted Spooktacular

Hello everyone and Happy Halloween! 
So today's post is going to be about something completely different... It's about Halloween! If you're not heading out tonight I have a recommendation on something for you to do... Something that will scare the cr*p out of you! 
Last night I attended a the Haunted Spooktacular in Meath and it's my third year in a row that I've went, and it has never disappointed. It's definitely something to do in a group... Even if you don't like scary things I'd still recommend it. It has something to terrify everyone... From clowns to scarecrows to chainsaws to hillbilly's and with a little bit of exorcisms thrown in for good measure. Realistically if you have nothing planned for tonight and you don't fancy sitting in watching your Facebook newsfeed, and being jealous of lads and lassies dressed up as priests and nurses and slutty maids, get in the car (or your friends car) and head north (or south or east or west) to Meath!
So, what does it entail? An hour and a half queue if you don't fancy paying an extra €6 for fast entry (pay the extra €6, it's well worth it). Once you enter the attraction, you'll explore the land but be prepared for people to chase you with chainsaws and jump out from the darkness. The good part about this is you have to stop at points so you have time to calm down. Take into consideration that if you're claustrophobic or affected by strobe lights or loud music this isn't for you. Once you get through the woodlands you'll enter a house which has everything from exorcisms to mental asylums and little children asking you to play with them. Creepy is not the word! 
So how much is it? If you book before you head you can pay a standard rate of €16 or you can get the fast track tickets which are €22 or pay at the gate which will be €19 or €25, depending on your preference. 
And how do you get there? From Dublin take the M3 till exit 9 which is for Navan/ Delvin (you'll have to go through one toll), from there head in the direction of Athboy/ Delvin and then after 6miles you'll come to a T-junction (there will be a sign ahead of you pointing to Farmaphobia which is another scare attraction) turn right, after another 2.5 miles you will reach a small village called Fordstown and take a left after the Daybreak and it's straight down the road with free parking. If you're travelling from anywhere else head over to the website for directions.
The event runs from 7pm till 10pm and tonight is the final night! Step out of your comfort zone and just do it! Myself and my two besties proved we were just as strong as the lads we went with and completed the attraction with a few screams and tantrums (OK that was a lie there was a lot of panicky moments)
Have you ever headed to the Haunted Spooktacular? What did you think? Will you be heading along tonight?
