Have a Hell-Fire Halloween
There’s no time like Halloween to see the Hell-Fire Caves at their spooky best. Located in West Wycombe the caves are network of caverns extending over a 500m underground. At Halloween the caves are transformed with a macabre selection of props, lighting and creepy music, not to mention a number of ravaged souls who prowl the passageways. Younger children will enjoy the Witches Workshop – an hour of fun including potion making, werewolf banishing, broomstick races and a tour of the Hell-Fire Caves by their friendly wizard. Braver and older souls can see if they are brave enough for the Fright Nights touring the caves at witching hour. Ghoul lovers be warned – prepare to be scared silly. This is not an experience not for the faint-hearted! The scare-athon is suitable for ages 10 and over and under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult. Click here for more information.
