Oak Beach scare-fest at new haunt

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - ENTERTAINMENT - AN­GELIQUE PAT­TER­SON

HAL­LOWEEN is creep­ing up on us again and to cel­e­brate, this year’s Haunt­ing of Oak Beach prom­ises to be big­ger, bet­ter and scarier. The haunt­ing, to be staged on Oc­to­ber 29, has been re­lo­cated to a 2.5-acre block at Oak Beach and will in­clude pi­rates, witches, a spi­der cookie lady, gypsy for­tune teller and a new fairy land for the younger crowd. Haunt­ing or­gan­iser, known only as the De­monised Ghoul, cre­ated the fairy­land for the younger chil­dren to have a fright with­out get­ting too scared.

“Fairy­land - we did this for the lit­tle kids be­cause this year I wanted to do some­thing spe­cial for the kids, I have made pa­pier-mache mon­sters, they are a lit­tle cute and a lit­tle scary,” the De­monised Ghoul said.

For those who can han­dle scary, the De­monised Ghoul also has a cham­ber of hor­rors, a mas­sive maze, a haunted grave­yard and a pi­rates cave.

“There will be an eerie cave and they can walk in a cir­cle all the way around a dam with dif­fer­ent things go­ing on,” the De­monised Ghoul said.

“At haunted man­sion, they en­ter into the man­sion and they will choose which door to go through, one door will have writ­ten on it ’scary’ and the other door, ’very scary’.”

Last year the lo­ca­tion was smaller and there was a wait on the front en­trance, but this year the De­monised Ghoul has ad­dressed this prob­lem with the larger block.

“What we took on from our first ex­pe­ri­ence is peo­ple don’t want to wait in line so this year every­one gets to come in all at once, and it will cost $5 per per­son to cover costs,” the De­monised Ghoul said.

The Haunt­ing of Oak Beach will be on Oc­to­ber 29 from 6pm-9pm.
