The Times welcomes dining, wining and entertainment news -- Helen Perry 271 8036 or email@example.com TELL ME ABOUT IT Dining & Leisure WHEN conventional actors prepare to take the stage, it’s customary to sug- gest they break a leg. At Spook- ers, however, this is not recom- mended… lest it be yours that’s broken! Driven mad by a lack of themed fun on All Hallows Eve, partner and I gave up the ghost on the TVandtookinashowwitha difference at former psychiatric hospital, Kingseat. Location sets the scene for Spookers ‘scream’ park. Driving through the grounds, surrounded by dilapidated and some would say haunted buildings, we could almost hear horror movie tunes playing in our heads. While props (many created with the assistance of Weta Workshops), costumes, makeup and sets were all meticulous, it’s the people that make Spook- ers so special. The commitment brutes and ghouls delivered was to be applauded. Clutching to character even when challenged with smart remarks, these ‘scare actors’ revel in their work and know how to improvise when required. Perhaps most chilling, actors can (and do!) touch visitors with hands, claws and even chain- saws! The invasion of personal space and crossing of social boundaries brings this attraction to life. We began with the Haunted House – set in one wing of the former Kingseat nurses’ hos- tel building. Each of the many rooms held new terrors, from nutty nannies and kooky clowns to an inmate encouraging guests to join her in a danse macabre; sorry, love, but my dance card was full; let’s make a date for next time! If you go down to the woods tonight, you’re sure of a frightful surprise! Inhabited by chainsaw wielding freaks and scary scarred psychos the Freaky Forest lives up to its name. And, it seems Kingseat is banjo country; one young freak explaining how he’d like to ‘play a game’ as Dueling Banjos wailed in the background, was enough to make some squeal for deliverance! ‘With a bit of a mind ﬂip, you’re into the time slip, and nothing will ever be the same.’ Another of Spookers’ attractions, Distur- bia, certainly had me spaced out on sensation! 3D effects twisted perception, leaving guests off centre and more vulnerable to the machinations of denizens, who seemed to appear from thin air. The ﬁnal attraction we experienced was Claustraphobia – a struggle through a converted shipping container, complete with a few bumps in the night. This was our least favourite. However, I would assume those suffering from a fear of conﬁned spaces would ﬁnd the attraction delightfully dreadful. Overall, if the devil’s in the details, Spookers was positively satanic! Behind the makeup and entertainment it was clear that attention to detail has been car- ried even further with shrewd business sense peeking through. Right down to coins given in change featuring Spookers stick- ers, this house of horrors seemed to run like clockwork beneath the chaotic façade. However, I shud- der to think what the (butcher’s) bill would be, with doctors mak- ing a killing from treating actor’s sore throats! Spookers showed its crea- tors understand the building blocks from which horror is constructed. While what ‘is’ can cause fright, it’s often what’s ‘presumed to be’ that really gets the heart racing. The team here seemed so adept at exploiting the fears of the populace they would make politicians proud! Well done to Spookers for its efforts in bringing a little happy horror back from the dead, reclaiming our Halloween night. All right on (fright) night HAUNTED by the prospect of spending Halloween watching Adam Sandler's latest effort at the movies (perhaps the 'scariest' picture on show), or must yawn TV, JON RAWLINSON headed to Spookers recently for a little frightful fun.
