Malta has hosted some of the world’s most ancient civilisations so there’s plenty of material to play with when it comes to raising long dead spirits. Fortify yourself with some mulled wine and head out to these party places … or take the kids to our more family friendly options. Good luck!
The video promoting this event is creepy as all heck; the camera plunges into a World War II shelter in Mgarr to experience some ‘augmented reality’. If you like your Halloween plagued by eerie babies, spectral apparitions and gray-toothed zombies, you’ll love it. Find out more; it’s on from the 26th October to the 4th November for ages 13+.
For a dose of Halloween drama, try an escape room. At Can You Escape? - Escape Rooms Malta in Fgura, it’s dark in the dreaded Graveyard and there’s a whiff of death.

Entry starts at €20pp - if you get a group together, the price goes down.
