Entailing a blood-curdling evening of thrills, frights and scares. Can you survive the Tunnel of Doom? Will you be mortified by the ancient Mummy. Dare you enter the spooky Kingdom of the Spiders? Discover these and much more at Halloween at Ushaw: Illuminated Trail!

Affordable for the whole family, don’t come alone as you may come across some ghoulish characters roaming the gardens of Ushaw, courtesy of our friends Activate Theatre, who will also be treating you to a special performance at the end of your time slot.

Each timeslot will be child friendly, but scare factor is likely to be cranked up just a little bit!

Check out our ‘SCARE-O-METER’ below:

😨 Terror Level: TWILIGHT (4:30-5:30pm)

😨😨 Terror Level: MOONLIGHT (6pm-7pm)

😨😨😨 Terror Level: MIDNIGHT (7:30pm-8:30pm)
