Haunted house to terrorise Zabbar

'Dar il-Waħx' will return tonight in a 200-year old police station in Żabbar.

Curtain Raiser will be holding the 4th edition of Dar il-Waħx - Malta’s unique popular Haunted House - for the first time in Zabbar. The organisers said that this year it will include extraordinary features such as lighting effects and HD projections amongst others, which should make the 35-minute experience fun, thrilling and scary.

Children will also have their share of fun and spookiness. Saint James Square, right infront of St. James Hospital will be turned into Malta’s first outdoor Halloween village the night of October 31st. Disney Villains will add up to the crazy scientific experiments, puppet shows, quest hunts, bouncy castles, games and activities. Children are invited to put on a creepy costume to contribute to the atmosphere.

If this is not enough to fill up your Halloween weekend, then Zabbar got even more on the list.
