Pre­pare to be scared - in a fun way

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - By ANGELIQUE PAT­TER­SON

BE­WARE of this week­end when demons, ghouls, witches, aliens, pi­rates and even the Grinch who stole Christ­mas de­scend on Oak Beach for the big­gest, scari­est and most en­ter­tain­ing haunt­ing yet.

The Haunt­ing of Oak Beach will come to life for one night only and in the myr­iad of en­ter­tain­ment there will be some­thing for all ages, from fan­tasy land for all the lit­tle witches and war­locks to the haunted man- sion and the lat­est edition, the Alien Mu­seum.

Af­ter spend­ing the whole year pre­par­ing the per­fect set­ting on 2.5 acres for all of his un­earthly friends, the De­monised Ghoul is very ex­cited to cel­e­brate the long-stand­ing Amer­i­can tradition of Hal­loween with his un­sus­pect­ing vic­tims.

“This is one not to miss, this is go­ing to be the best haunt ever, I’m thor­oughly con­vinced with the de­tail we have gone to,” he said.

“It’s fun, it’s creepy and it’s fes­tive and it gives fam­i­lies some­thing to do for Hal­loween.”

As an added treat, the De­monised Ghoul is raf­fling an alien’s head with any­one who bravely en­ters the Haunt­ing of Oak Beach and vis­its all the sites el­i­gi­ble - in­clud­ing the Haunted Man­sion with the new room, the Dis­turb­ing Christ­mas with the Grinch who stole Christ­mas.

Old favourites with re­vamped ar­eas in­clude the Spi­der Lady, the Witches Hut, the Spooky Grave­yard, the friendly Fan­tasy Land, Burn­ing of the Witch, the scar­ily tal­ented Port Dou­glas Academy of Per­form­ing Arts ren­di­tion of Michael Jack­son’s Thriller and the new­est at­trac­tion, the Sweeney Todd mu­si­cal, the De­mon Bar­ber of Fleet Street.

The Haunt­ing of Oak Beach comes alive from 6pm this Satur­day night and fin­ishes at 9pm with the Burn­ing of the Witch. Cost is $5 each and to get there turn right on Reynolds Rd, Oak Beach and fol­low the signs, go to www.hauntin­go­foak­ for more in­for­ma­tion.
