TripAdvisor Offers Once-In-A-Lifetime Chance For A Spooky Halloween Overnight In The London Dungeon
Brave Travelers Invited to Enter Sweepstakes for Chance to Win a Trip to Experience the Ultimate Halloween Sleepover in London's Scariest Attraction

NEEDHAM, Mass., Sept. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- For those who dare, the chance to spend Halloween night inside London's scariest attraction has become a haunting reality. TripAdvisor®, home to more than 61,000 bookable tours and attractions around the world, has launched the "Sweet Screams" sweepstakes in partnership with The London Dungeon, granting one lucky winner and three fearless friends or family members the opportunity to stay overnight in the Dungeon on October 31, 2017 for the ultimate "creep-over."


In addition to their overnight stay at The London Dungeon, the sweepstakes winners will receive a round-trip flight to London, as well three nights in a TripAdvisor top-rated London hotel.

"TripAdvisor is all about getting under the skin of top bookable attractions, and this exclusive, truly unforgettable experience will make sure four brave souls have their most memorable Halloween ever," said Hayley Coleman, media relations manager for TripAdvisor.

"The London Dungeon is the home of Halloween and the winners will have the chance to experience a sleepover like no other," said Steve Blackburn, General Manager, The London Dungeon. "This is a once in a lifetime chance as they will be spending the night inside our limited run show the 'Death Express.' The question is, are they brave enough to take on the challenge?"

The London Dungeon brings together actors, special effects, stages, scenes and rides to create a unique and frightening walkthrough experience, recreating London's various gory and ghoulish historical events. The TripAdvisor sweepstakes winners will be whisked back to London's most perilous past where they will see, hear and smell the chilling "bad old days" as they come to life right before their eyes.

Based on the story of the Necropolis Railway, which famously carried dead bodies out of London, the clickety-clack of the Death Express tracks won't be the only noise keeping the TripAdvisor travelers wide-eyed this All Hallows' Eve. The evening will be hosted by the Dungeon's jovial Jester, who has plenty of games and dark twists up his sleeve for the once-in-a-lifetime night.

The Sweet Screams sweepstakes is open to entrants in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, France and Canada, and will run from September 25, 2017 at 12:01 AM EDT through October 10, 2017 at 11:59 PM EDT. The winner will be selected on October 11, 2017. Entrants must be at least 18 years-of-age and their three friends or family members must be at least 12 years-of-age.
