On Saturday the 8th October I was invited along to the opening night of Fright Fest.
Fright Fest is the West of Ireland's first and only scream park. To be honest I was kind of dreading the whole experience as I am not the type of person that enjoys being scared or watching horror movies etc. But I decided to accept the invitation as I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and experience something new.

Fright Fest is made up of three different haunted scare attractions, Frightmare Manor, Terrortorium and Walk of Fear. I went to this event with two of my housemates and we started off in Terrortorium as this was advised to be the most terrifying so we wanted to get it out of the way. This had a circus theme and with the killer clown trend that is circulating at the moment it definitely made us jump and scream through out, but at the same time it was actually enjoyable which surprised me, we couldn't help but laugh in between the screaming, could have been complete nervous laughter but we definitely had fun somehow. 

The second attraction we entered was The Walk of Fear. This is the one attraction that is partly outdoors. We definitely did walk in fear, this was an animal themed stage of Fright Fest and I'll just advise you to watch your feet for this one! 

The third and final attraction we ventured into was Frightmare Manor and I have to say this was a personal favourite of mine and my two housemates agreed. This is a very interactive part of the experience as you make your way through a haunted hotel. I have to say the characters throughout the hotel were brilliant and played their roles so brilliantly, even though it was commented that I'd make an excellent corpse more than once I definitely enjoyed the experience while also waiting in anticipation for the next terrifying event to happen.

I am so surprised that I came out of Fright Fest feeling glad that I went. I may have welded myself in between my housemates for the whole experience in the hope that I'd be protected but I actually enjoyed it and we had a laugh while being absolutely terrified. I'd highly recommend this experience if you and you're friends are looking for something different to do this Halloween!

The dates for Fright Fest are 14,15,16,20,21,22,23,27,28,29,30,31 October and November 1st.
