Our annual scare event returns 20 October, 2017.
HALLOWEEN GLIDE & GLOW?
Glide & Glow is our annual Halloween event at Adventure Segway Plymouth at Mount Edgcumbe Country Park which returns again for 2017 from Friday 20 October.
Experience the dark side of the gardens and embark on an eerie discovery deep into the park. It’s the regions must-do Halloween event utilising thousands of LED’s, effects and ghostly goings on to create a highly immersive experience nowhere else can come close to replicate.
CAN YOU TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE?
Spoiler alert! Here are the scares we have planned this year on your adventure into darkness! Prepare to have more fun than mere humans should be allowed.
Deep in the heart of the park, under the stars, check-in at our Explorers Outpost. Start your Halloween adventure here and familiarise yourself with your Ghost Glider! It won’t be the place to hang about if you’re scared of Spiders.
It’s here you’ll meet your instructors, and we’ll give you a safety briefing whilst your eyes adjust to the darkness. Everyone is boarded one-on-one with an instructor in our private training area. Ignore the spirits audible in the background.
An annual firm favourite – head into our skills assault course and navigate your Ghost Glider over ramps, balance beams, through slaloms and under the limbo line. Full on action at the most scary time of year – it’s truly unique, hilarious fun and sometimes a bit scary!
House on Haunted Hill
Get an up close view of this vast, towering building that was once a magnificent home to the Earls of Mount Edgcumbe. Make haste – something’s approaching fast!
What Lies Beneath?
New for 2017 – disembark and venture into the old Henrican Block House. It’s just thirteen steps between you and your worst nightmare – underground! Dare to progress deeper past old granite casemates and you may just meet… Clownance!
This feature is optional.
The Dark Side of the Gardens
If you escape – discover the dark side of the gardens and be led on a ride beyond your wildest screams! One giant headlamp will illuminate the journey back and not much else. This is truly a ride into darkness.
We’ll set the scene whilst you prepare your best ghoulish, monstrous masterpiece with a final group photo. Embrace the season and strike the pose by visiting in your finest Halloween attire?
No Trick – Just Treat!
Following over an hour of fun we’ll finish with a Halloween staple – enjoy a complimentary treat on us! Plus why not add on a delicious Cadburys Hot Chocolate for just 59p?
