Get scared at Silver Mountain

17-25 October 2020, Silver Mountain Experience, Ponterwyd, Mid Wales

Dark, creepy underground mines and Halloween - what could be scarier? Head to the Silver Mountain Experience near Aberystwyth for some top Hallowe'en action. There's a great mixture of events depending on your 'prepared-to-be-scared' level - from not-so-scary fancy dress and 'Trick or Treat' trails to the terrifying 'Terror Mountain' for over 12s.
