7 Orlando USA Family fun is the order of the day

first_img7. Orlando, USAFamily fun is the order of the day every day at Orlando‘s famous theme parks, but Halloween is extra fun. Seaworld, Legoland and Universal Studios all put on special events, while Walt Disney World has one of its biggest days in the calendar. If Space Mountain wasn’t scary enough, the big-eared mouse throws Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, while there’s always the brilliant Haunted Mansion that scares and entertains 365 days a year.

Edinburgh, ScotlandBeneath the cobbles of genteel Edinburgh’s Royal Mile is The Real Mary King’s Close, a system of secret streets where the good folk of the Auld Reekie once passed their time, and passed away, of all sorts of horrible things like the plague. You can take a guided tour led by a one-time Mary King resident to see what it was like to live underground. There’ll be plenty of scary goings-on in Close Fest, which launches on Halloween. 6. Patzcuaro, MexicoThe Mexicans really go to town for Halloween. In fact, it’s not Halloween but Days of the Dead. On Los Dias de los Muertos the living pay respect to the dead by building shrines in their honour and inviting them round for tea. This festival reaches its zenith in the magical 14th century town of Patzcuaro, where kids mark the occasion by running round nicking vegetables from rooftops. 2. Transylvania, RomaniaHow about a romantic getaway in an atmospheric old castle? Fang-tastic! Bram Stoker’s Dracula hug his hat in Transylvania, which is not ficitional but a real-life region of Romania. Mr D isn’t the only bloodthirsty character to knock about in these parts – so did the notorious Vlad the Impaler, who hung his victims out to decompose at picturesque Bran Castle, a couple of hours north of Romanian capital Bucharest. SPOOK-TACULAR! Ghost your way to our pick of seven of the scariest places to go and downright silly things to do on All Hallow’s Eve.1. Berlin, GermanyWitches, warlocks and whatever else are welcome aboard the good ghost ship that sets sail on the River Spree for ‘The Boat of Horror‘ – one of Berlin’s craziest parties. And being Berlin, there are quite a few crazy parties from which to choose. Entry is 28 euros in costume, 39 not, so it pays to dress up, not that you wouldn’t. Once you’ve partied like a particularly devilish imp, head on to Kulturbrauerei in Prenzlauer Berg for their huge Halloween hoedown. 3. Paris, FranceAh, Paris, city famed for high fashion, high culture, cheesy selfies beside world-famous attractions.. and horror! Yes, the ‘City of Light’ has a hidden dark side, and no, we don’t mean the fleshpots of Pigalle. Under streets paved with romance is an uneartly domain. Les Catacombes are a vast network of tunnels in which are stored the remains of a staggering six million people. It’s best to take a guided tour to explore this underworld safely.
