Test your fearlessness and join us in the castle for The Vanishing – an immersive poltergeist experience.
1873. The young daughter of Lord & Lady Muncaster has disappeared leaving no trace. The castle is searched, but nothing can be done – it’s as though she has vanished into thin air. The girl is never found and the mystery never uncovered.
150 years later. The past has not been forgotten and the castle is haunted by this dark mystery. A young girl has been heard sobbing in the castle, and no one dares enter the bedroom on the red corridor. Poltergeist activity and inexplicable phenomena have become frequent, and the castle’s occupants have been forced to flee, leaving the place deserted, as the haunting intensifies and fear turns to terror.
Your presence is requested as we try to uncover Muncaster’s mysterious disappearance and illuminate the dark secrets of The Vanishing.
What to expect: From the moment you enter the castle you will be immersed in a poltergeist experience, as you explore and try to uncover the strange mystery that has left Muncaster deserted. Over the course of 45 minutes, guests should be prepared for jump scares, sustained suspense and fear, and elements of interaction.
Content Advisories: The experience will feature themes of psychological torment, mental illness and exorcism. – We recommend the experience for guests of 18 years plus.
