Win! A family pass to Warwick Castle for the Halloween spectacular

AOL Travel


This October, Warwick Castle is offering four lucky AOL Travel readers and their family an opportunity to enjoy its all-new thrilling and spine chilling Haunted Castle experience from 22 and 31 October.

The Castle has introduced six new attractions especially for Halloween, each designed to thrill, scare and enthrall visitors of all ages.

By day, visitors can conquer chaos in the foul and gory Horrible Histories Maze. From Terrible Tudors to Vicious Vikings, the challenge is to reorder history – thanks to Rattus Rattus, who put everything in the wrong order - and escape the maze before things go (even more) horribly wrong...

Over in the Central Courtyard, children can help the evil witches of Warwick conjure up spells in The Witches' Tower (the Princesses have been evicted!). Little witches and wizards will delight in the new spellbinding story packed full of magic, witchcraft and sorcery.

Watch out for Castle characters which are always happy to share a creepy tale or two with curious guests as they explore the Castle, while over in The Haunted Hollows a magical garden of golden vegetables and enchanted statues holds hidden secrets. Beware though, as darkness falls, the trail becomes more eerie!

Action-packed shows set to get the adrenalin pumping include the three-times-daily mighty Trebuchet Fireball Spectacular and the ferocious Halloween Fire Joust. Hear the thunder of horses' hooves mix with knights' battle cries as the bravery, skill and agility of the horseback heroes are pushed to the limit in this blazing battle.

For those who are truly brave and fearless, from 12pm daily, prepare for disturbing encounters in Tormented: new for 2016, the attraction is for only the boldest and bravest - a troubled soul trapped with a fate far worse than death.

At 5pm, as night envelopes the Castle, the Central Courtyard falls silent for the arrival of the plague doctor, brought in to treat the grotesque, plague-ridden souls in Outbreak 1349, a knuckle-clenching live-actor experience. The Black Death has returned to Warwick but this time contagion is instant with shocking results. Victims must struggle through the darkness to flee the infected. Sound easy? Remember, not all walls are built to keep people out!

And the Spirits are rising in The Castle Dungeon, putting the resident moaning monks and wicked witches even more on edge. Uncover the darkest and bloodiest aspects of the Castle's history including tales of terror, torture and injustice from 11am daily, through live actor shows and special effects. Over 10s only, absolutely no exceptions.

Each winner will receive a family pass for four people to visit Warwick Castle between 22 and 31 October. The pass allows visitors to enjoy the entire Castle, excluding the Dungeon. The Castle closes daily at 9pm.
