THE SÉANCE FAQs

What is THE SÉANCE?

It is a Halloween scare attraction with a twist - no walking through in conga lines, or long waits to get in. This is a premium 30 minute immersive experience that will see you attempt to make contact with the dead...unfortunately for you, it will go terrifyingly wrong! 

 

Is it a real Séance, will I actually encounter a real ghost? 

 

We do use genuine 18th Century Séance techniques, and the story has been based on actual events...despite this, it is a synthetic Séance that does not actually make contact with the 'genuine' afterlife. 

 

Is Strobe lighting in use? 

 

Yes, flashing lights will feature at certain points within the attraction, along with smoke effects and loud noises.

 

Are other people in the experience at the same time?

Yes, other people will be in the experience at the same time - but we can assure you, that this won't make you feel any safer. When it comes to The Séance, there is no such thing as safety in numbers. 

Is it wheelchair accessible?

Yes, we are fully wheelchair accessible - with on-site accessible toilet facilities too.

Is it really that scary?

We and our previous guests think so, but it is ultimately designed to be a fun experience - we are not in the business of traumatising people. The Séance is a fantastic way to celebrate Halloween in a totally unique way that will mix laughs, fun, scares and good times with whoever you come with. 

 

What is Splatterbox?

 

We are an independent theatrical company that produces live action horror experiences, our location varies depending on the event or attraction. In the event of a query, please contact us rather than the venue.

 

 

Where is Splatterbox located?

 

We vary locations depending on the event and attraction, for Halloween 2021 our Seance experience will be taking over the Caddies in Southend-on-Sea. 

 

 

Is it suitable for children?


Entry for under 18s is at parental discretion, this is a scare experience so is designed to fright and scare.
