What is a Haunted Camp Out! Q&A

Q: How is a haunted camp out is different to a normal ghost hunt??

A: First off this includes sleeping or roughing it in a sleeping bag, it’s also 4 hours longer than a normal ghost hunt and you’re in the building throughout the entire night till dawn. Also on a normal ghost hunt you would be in teams and moving location each hour. With this style of night you’re not, you choose the haunted room you want and you bed down in there keeping one eye open and normally on this kind of style night people witness more activity and sometimes even a ghost!

Q: How many people will be in my room??

A: It depends but not many usually from 2 - 8. The rooms are huge and there is plenty of space. If you’re in a small room like a prison cell then I would recommend booking it out for just you and your friends.

Q: Can we do experiments in our rooms??

A: If you have your own equipment then yes you can as long as it’s not disturbing any one. AITDE equipment is not permitted to be used during the lock down. Just make sure you know when to quit and be respectful of the dead and living as you will be all alone and you want to survive don’t you?

Q: Can I go into different rooms??

A: NO once the lights go out you must stay in lock-down in your location! PLUS for health and safety reasons you could fall or trip on someone sleeping. It’s a lock-down for a reason as you’re not marshalled and it’s down to you using your own common sense. 

Q: How do I reserve a room in the Castle??

A: On the night you will be taken around the Castle (with the lights on!) so you can see the different rooms and decide where you want to sleep.  After the walk around you can then reserve your sleeping with our Team Leaders who will be taking reservations after the walk around has ended.
