Chessington World of Adventures Resort has launched a new Howl'o'ween event which runs up to November 2 and offers a week filled with frights, howls and family fun.

Open every night until 20:00, Howl’o’ween presents two walk-through attractions, two new Halloween shows, rides in the dark, a daily fancy dress competition for young adventurers and more than 1,000 animals across the zoo and Sea Life centre.

For the fearless adventurer, VAMPIRE: The Haunting in the Hollows is back due to popular demand, where visitors can step back in time to 1897 in Transylvania where, beyond the gates of Castle Dracula, lies the village of Black Hollow and the park's spookiest Halloween walk-through attraction. Also back for this year is The Mystery of Hocus Pocus Hall, where visitors must enter the stately home of Sir Arthur, a famous explorer who vanished without a trace, to try to solve the mystery of what happened.

There will also be two new family shows for 2014 - an all singing, all dancing performance in Market Square where visitors get to pick their favourite performer and the chance to travel across to the Land of the Dragons to meet and greet some new hairy and scary friends at the Wild Factor stage.

Meanwhile, the theme park has recently expanded with the launch of the Azteca Hotel, a new fully themed resort hotel with 69 guestrooms and a Savannah Splash Pool & Gym.
