Just because Halloween weekend is over, it doesn’t mean all the fun has to stop. The show must go on, and go on it shall.
Firstly, we vote not club-hopping in a risque nurse’s costume.
Secondly, we’ve found three activities you can do post-Halloween that will truly give you a fright, or just an excuse to keep celebrating the spookiest holiday of the year.
TRAPT Bar and Escape Rooms
The Basement, 377 Lonsdale St, Melbourne
What’s scarier than an escape room? In our opinion, not much. Luckily TRAPT has a bar to calm your nerves with post-adventure beverages!
Located in the basement of the heritage Keep & Co building, at TRAPT your team has 45 minutes to find clues and solve puzzles to escape before time runs out!
Their Annual Halloween Mystery is at the bar until November 2nd and is definitely worth checking out. As they say, solve the puzzles, drink the potions and win the prize. How devilishly mysterious…
Melbourne’s biggest costume party, Luna Dark is a special, ticket-only event that transforms the iconic Luna Park into something even more terrifying than a roller-coaster.
There will be lots of kid-friendly activities on during the day but we are most excited for the American Horror Story: Roanoke Nightmare bar. For adults only, you are warned to enter at your own peril. Housing a licensed bar, DJ and paranormal happenings – guests are invited to dance their fear away.
Today is the last day to get in on the action at this horror extravaganza, so act quick.Tickets are available on their website.
Tuesday, October 31: Night 6pm – 11pm
100 Victoria Street, Carlton
It’s the end of an era, Dracula’s Melbourne is closing its doors on December 23.
But can you think of a better place to be freaked out this Halloween? Although, they are sold out for the spookiest day of the year – there are plenty more shows to go around leading up to Christmas. Dracula’s is perfect for those Halloween buffs that just really don’t want this horror holiday to end.
They are currently playing Resurrection, bringing together the most requested acts of the past decade, revamped with slap-face costumes, retro-now songs, mesmerising special effects and serrated edge comedy.
As always, a Cabaret ticket, which will only set you back $89, includes a Ghost Train Ride and three-course dinner. Not too shabby.
