Every October, children across the globe celebrate a tradition that began in Ireland hundreds of years ago. Today, Halloween is celebrated all across the world, but the tricks and treats aren’t just for kids anymore. Here is a list of the best Halloween celebrations you cannot miss this year!
The London Dungeon
First up is The London Dungeon. This is one of the biggest celebrations in the UK. Complete with 19 interactive shows and 360-degree sets, this theatrical performance plants you right in the middle of London’s darkest affairs from the past 1000 years. You can get up close and personal with the Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Mr. Sweeney Todd himself, then take a seat in the famous Ten Bells Pub as you await the appearance of Jack the Ripper. Enjoy a short drop and sudden stop on the popular ride Drop Dead. This exhilarating attraction gives you the experience of hanging from the famous Newgate Gallows.
Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor
Board the historic Queen Mary in Long Beach, California and step inside one of the world’s most haunted ships. At least 49 deaths have been reported on the Queen Mary throughout its history. Dark Harbor will let you wander with the spirits still lingering there. Six haunted mazes, 4D theatre, immersive attractions, and monsters unlike any seen before, will terrify and shock you during your “voyage”. The VIP experience will get you exclusive access to 1 Secret Bar. You will also enjoy a guided tour of each maze with no lines and no wait.
Village Halloween Parade
Nowhere does Halloween quite like New York City. Amidst all the parties and theatrics, the Village Halloween Parade is the true heartbeat of the celebrations. Second only to the famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the Village Halloween Parade travels through Greenwich Village with giant puppets and fully costumed performers. Over 50,000 characters take to the streets to celebrate, and anyone in a costume can join in on the fun.
Banks of the Foyle Halloween Carnival
Head back to the land where Halloween celebrations as we know them began. Just off the river banks of Northern Ireland, the city of Derry-Londonderry comes alive for four nights filled with pure Halloween terror. There is something for every Halloween aficionado at this celebration. First, visit the interactive zombie apocalypse experience or the sensory deprivation haunted house. Then, Halloween night will kick off with a literal bang, as a display of brilliant fireworks dances over the river Foyle. Before the night ends, watch in wonder as the streets are taken over by one of the world’s biggest carnival parades.
Netherworld Haunted House
Finally, if you are looking for the best haunted house in the United States, look no further than Atlanta, Georgia, home of Netherworld. Currently listed as the #1 Scariest Haunted House in all of America, Netherworld is a fully immersive experience complete with special effects and original creatures. These theatrics are out of this world and will leave you in heart-wrenching fear. Those brave enough to enter are left with the memorable experience of movie quality props, “goose-bump” inducing monsters, and horrifying special effects. This event is recommended for adults and teens only!
