In America they love Halloween and go all out to make it a “spooktacularly” special holiday. Why not treat yourself to a break with a difference and book a holiday to one of these tricky Stateside Halloween hot spots?
Walt Disney World, Orlando
If you’ve got young children there’s only one place to spend the ultimate Happy Halloween – Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida…
The Magic Kingdom is transformed throughout October with pumpkins, candy corns and spooks galore (the friendliest kind of spooks, of course!). This year, guests can catch Mickey’s Boo to You Halloween Parade and the Happy HalloWishes firework spectacular. Don’t forget to pack your cutest Halloween costumes!
Las Vegas, Nevada
For thrills and chills Viva Las Vegas style head to the city of lights. The Asylum and Hotel Fear are two notoriously frightening attractions – strictly adults only. And if they’re not enough to scare you, why not choose to stay at The Flamingo Hotel, which is supposedly haunted by the ghost of well-known US gangster Bugsy Segal, or scare yourself silly on a helicopter flight over the vast Grand Canyon. The city of lights definitely has a dark side worth experiencing!
Residents of Chicago suburbs go all out when it comes to trimming up for trick or treaters, offering an experience unlike any you’ll find in the UK. Just make sure that you have a suitably amazing costume as no effort equals no candy!
Die hard fright fans can also visit the Basement of the Dead attraction in nearby Aurora. A terrifying walk-through attraction featuring a cast of real-life actors, it’s sure to leave you scared witless! Doing Halloween USA-style is an experience not to be missed. Just make sure that you avoid travel nightmares by insuring your trip with Insure and Away.
