HallowScream UK combines live horror experiences, theme park rides in the dark, an indoor entertainment complex, Hallowe'en cocktail bars and DJs from some of the South West's most renowned events - RinseOut and Beatz and Bobz.

Taking place at Devon's Crealy, HallowScream UK is billed to be the ultimate fright night event, with horror characters and terrifying walkthroughs. The event combines theatre with theme park attractions, special effects, lighting and theming to provide fright nights, which organisers say will completely immerse people in Hallowe'en horror.

Jenni Taffs, Marketing and Press Relations for HallowScream, said: "HallowScream is totally unique. We are all very excited preparing for this event which will be the first of its kind in the South West and also, as it's adults-only, the first of its kind in the UK. We are working very closely with themers, scare-actors and of course, the team at Devon's Crealy."

The horror attractions community are also excited about the forthcoming event. Michael Bolton from, the industy experts in all things scary and organisers of ScareCon at Leisure Industry Week 2008, said: "The inaugural HallowScream event at Devon's Crealy has more scary attractions on offer than other events that have been running for years.
