Durban - Calling all Halloween ghosts and ghouls.
Next Saturday, uShaka Marine World will be transformed into a trick or treaters paradise.
Families are invited to come down to uShaka Marine World where they will trick or treat through uShaka Marine World’s Village Walk, then explore the scary Wreck Aquarium in the Phantom Ship. The journey ends with uShaka’s Ghost and Ghouls special feature, showcasing all things ghoulish from 5pm, then Halloween guests will be spirited off to the dolphin amphitheatre for a show that not only includes Gambit, the largest bottlenose dolphin in a Southern African aquarium, and his finned family, but also some special Halloween characters and the Ocean Warriors who will form part of the lineup.
Tickets are priced at R150 per person and are available online or at the uShaka Marine World ticketing office.
If you're with a more older crowd, you may want to try the Mystery Ghost Bus.
The Mystery Ghost Bus will be running its ever-popular Halloween tour on October 31 in Durban. The tour includes on-the-bus and off-the-bus stops, haunted houses, poltergeist stories, pub stops, castles, graveyards, dowsing rods audience participation and more.
Some of the favourite stops are the Playhouse Theatre, which has a phantom that lurks beneath the stage, the old Berea Nursing home where poison murderess Daisy de Melker trained to become a nurse whilst learning how to use poison to murder her two husbands and son, the ‘Spook House of Musgrave Road’ where a sad lass gazes out of the tower window for her missing lover lost at sea, the Poltergeist House of Campbell Road with many a frightening happening and the old St. Thomas cemetery which has a thrilling climax to end the tour.
Prices and all details (including the routes and stories) can be found on the tour’s website @ www.MysteryGhostBus.co.za. Also, you're welcome to dress up.
