The old folk-tales of the Salem Witch Trials of 1692, echoed through your head as you pack up your things. You had learnt recently about the horrific events that happened all the way back in 1692. Where villagers believed In the damnation of all woman who was proven to be a witch. Through ghastly trials and hysteria, hundreds of innocent woman were trialled and killed for the use of witchcraft in the villages of Salem. Tales of possession, haunting and madness spread and it is now believed that Salem is the home to all the spirits who died, all that time ago, but one woman in particular Marjorie Sutton, is to be seen at midnight of the witching hour, in her old home, which is now just an abandoned shack in the middle of Salem forest. You’re not one to believe in superstition but it soon became a story of interest and before you know it you begin to feel destined to uncover the truth about Marjorie. Your eyes flash open and before you know it, you're on the road with your giggling friends on the way to the Salem.
The road trip was long, tiring and rain started to patter down on the windscreen 20 minutes before you reached the heart of Salem, Massachusetts. Questions started to fill your thoughts. Is this real? Is it all nonsense? Will we see anything? But even with all your doubts, you and your friends finally make it to the abandoned cabin and set up for the long night ahead. You feel your way through the dark, to get familiar with the space surrounding you. Candles and torches emerge from your friend’s backpacks and soon the dingy little cabin starts to illuminate with the flickers of the flames.
You can hear the trees whispering around you outside the cabin, when feelings of dread and fear start to creep up on you. You stumble across a large, dusty book in the corner which read “The Book of The Damned.” Within the circle on the damp, dirty floor, you flick through the book. It seems to be a diary or maybe a record of all the poor souls taken too soon from the earth. As time ticks by, strange things begin to unfold. Candles extinguish on their own whilst floorboards creak as if someone else was here with you. Cackling laughter surrounds the cabin as confusion hits home and you begin to question yourself. You try to convince yourself that it must just be the trees dancing in the rain, the wind blowing out the candles. You couldn't be more wrong. A huge scream echoes throughout the cabin as the book starts flicking through pages, eventually stopping on one page. We read slowly “Marjorie Sutton, can resurrect and take a human form on the night of the witching hour, where the power of the spirits is at its highest. She must claim a human soul and from there she may rise and wreak havoc over Salem.” Frozen, you look up and stare into the blood-red eyes of none other than Marjorie Sutton, pointing a long, bony finger at you. This is the moment, the moment you realised it was all true. The spirits and voices are overwhelmingly loud as you scramble your way through the house. It is you. It is your soul she had to claim and the only way to escape was to destroy `The Book of The Damned` and leave Salem behind.
You have 60 minutes until the witching hour is at its strongest and your soul will be stolen from within you. Your body inhabited by an ancient spirit whose vengeance on the town of Salem was at an almighty high. Destroy the book, flee the cabin and NEVER look back. It seems easier said than done, but work together and you may survive. Witches are real, and their vengeance is the most terrifying and powerful form of torture you could ever experience...run.Book Now LEEDS ONLY

You've been driving for what seems like an eternity and your pupils are burning through their sockets. The dark, winding road just never ends and it feels like you are the only person left on the planet right now. You can't even remember when you last passed another car. A sign for a Motel creeps up to you and passes by, the classic red neon tube lighting. Beneath it, 'vacancy' reads in blue and you decide to pull in and call it a night.
Judging by the exterior, this Motel has definitely seen better days. The drain pipes are half hanging down, the paint is faded and peeling and the 'check in' sign has toppled a little too far to the right. Entering into reception doesn't make you feel any more welcome. A peculiar little man hobbles slowly from behind a doorway and stands at the reception desk. He does nothing more than put a form on the desk and a front door key next to it. This character has a very strange presence about him almost sinister. He does not look you in the eye throughout the entire exchange.
After hastily making your way back outside the reception area you find your way to room 666, thankful to get into the room and finally chill out after a long day of driving. This room is not much better than the exterior. A single, messily made bed sits against a wall. An old school TV seems to be on permanent static and a locked, ominous looking wardrobe stands tall in the corner, who would lock a wardrobe? Not to mention the bars on the window! Too tired to kick up a fuss, you shake off the uneasy feeling and try to relax. A bit of exploration and you find a DVD in one of the drawers. With not much else to do, you decide to play it but what begins to unfold on the screen chills you to your very core.
A dawning realisation creeps over you, you've just checked into a Motel where guests never check back out. You may be about to endure a night of terror at the hands of the sadistic Motel manager. You must do everything you can to ensure you don't end up on the slaughter table inside his gruesome torture chamber. If only it was as easy as leaving through the same door you entered.

After entering, it's all fun and games until you start to notice the abnormal silence among the workers. They seem to labour along in a zombie-like state, almost like mind slaves. They don't blink or speak to anyone - not even each other. It isn't until you recognise a stamp on one of their hands for Madame Curio's fortune tent that you notice they all have the same distinguishing stamp. A quick glance towards the sage's tent tells you that passers-by are being reluctantly coerced into entering... and they never seem to emerge. Something rather sinister is happening and you realise that you could be next. The circus closes in 60 minutes and you can't see an exit anywhere. Maybe they blocked it off?

After a blissful weekend break visiting family you are in the midst of a long car journey home. You have at least another 6 hours to go and the rain is hammering down hard on the windscreen. It's quite calming, actually. You drive continuously along the straight, unwinding motorway, there is not another car in sight at this ungodly hour. You listen to the rain as it plunders down creating white noise, filling your head with slow, soothing thoughts. You don't notice your eyelids drooping until it's too late. You see a flash, you hear a crash, you feel the impact and then nothing. You feel as though you are floating through a black void. You don't really know how long you're there for, concept of time seems to escape you in this dimension.
Suddenly, you hear a scraping of metal, a swoosh of material. Someone is in the room with you, you can feel it. A man's voice speaks; It's only minor injuries, he should be out within a week. He's lucky, it could have been a lot worse. We'll keep an eye on his condition and let you know if anything happens. That is a relief. Thank you, doctor. A woman's voice. You recognise it. You try to move but your limbs don't respond. You start to panic but the more you try to move, the more impossible it seems. There is another scraping of metal and a swoosh and you feel the atmosphere become still again. Your dark plain submerges you once again.
Drifting in and out of consciousness, you feel a sharp prick in your forearm. It pulls you out of your stupor and you can hear a faint, rhythmic beeping sound. Upon focusing on it you realise it's your heart beat. It's reassuring until it begins to speed up quicker and quicker, faster and faster. Fear burns through you and desperation kicks in but your limbs still disobey you and your lips ignore your desperate attempts to shout. You hear voices, panicstricken shouting, a woman frenzied.
He's going into cardiac arrest, we need a crash trolley in here now!
Your inner self is hysterical but your body makes no sign. A long, unbroken beep rings out coupled with a painful silence. That familiar voice, your mothers, screams uncontrollably He was supposed to live! But you are not dead.
The next time you stir you feel a cold, hard surface beneath you. You see a blinding glare through your eyelids and you struggle to open them but they only flicker a little. A voice comes in existence, it's the doctors voice but this time he is not concerned nor friendly. His voice is stern and serious.
Yes, I have the body. He's still alive, don't worry. Kidnapped to order, just like I promised. Pause.
Leave the money in the discussed location and the guy is yours to pick up in an hour. Pause.

They say humans have inhabited earth for thousands of years. They are wrong. Humans have slowly been destroying earth for thousands of years, exhausting this once peaceful planet and everything that lived in harmony with it. 50 years ago, the predictions were publicised, earth would be in ruin and extinction would close in on us. But no one took notice. A blind eye cast towards the 'experts' and our trends continued. Overpopulation, nuclear atomic wars, engineered disease. All very real threats we regret to ignore. So wrapped up in universal destruction; deforestation caused by agriculture, driving catastrophic climate change and ultimately, global warming were the cause of our debilitation. Things we were subconsciously aware of but chose to ignore. We chose to destroy our beautiful home and now, the reckoning is upon us.
As you gaze out of the window across the desolate badlands, the skies burn a flaming blend of exquisite reds. The ground beneath you has completely shattered from the shrunken ozone layer. Long, connected fractures creep out for as far as the eye can see. The vivid green trees and lush, spongey grass seems but a fading memory now. It is a mystery to you, how this once thriving ecosystem can be the object of such an injurious holocaust. It has a kind of exclusive beauty about it you wonder how it could simultaneously be so deadly.
Your brows furrow in concerned frustration at the planetary cataclysm your kind has managed to provoke. The second chance you are about to retrieve feels undeserved. There is talk of a Tetrahedron concealed within the landscape on planet Mars. You and your team of NASA scientists have been studying it for a copious amount of lengthy years and believe it may have the ability to reverse cataclysmic climate change with the help of supernatural geoengineering. It's a long shot, but it's the only option.
All suited up and strapped in, you sit nervously in the launch shuttle and ponder possibilities. Your mission is clear; obtain the Tetrahedron and fire it back to earth where the other scientists will begin initiation. A countdown begins on the screen in front of you and the shuttle begins hum and shake. You take a deep breath and implore the adrenaline to keep you going. No one has any idea of what to expect.

After years of dreaming, you have finally booked your Arctic Adventure! Clambering onto the plane, you place your hand luggage into the overhead space and settle down into your seat. You were quite lucky to nab a window seat, you've heard the view into the Arctic is quite breathtaking! It's a long flight ahead, a solid 14 hours but you don't mind. Flights have never been a particular issue for you, it's mostly the landing. However, your route does pass over the Borean Rectangle and this concerns you a little. The Borean Rectangle is a large frozen wasteland deep in the Arctic and it's confirmed that 117 planes have mysteriously vanished over this area although no one can determine why or how. The story is the same for every plane; communication cuts out and the crew and passengers are never heard from again. No one has dared venture into this territory by foot for fear of unknown horrors... A scared man's mind can invent all kinds of terrors. You abruptly shake these thoughts from your mind and tell yourself not to fret over trivial matters. Hundreds of flights pass this icy barren every day and only a few go missing. You'll be fine!
As the plane ascends further into the azure blanket ahead you decide you should probably rest your eyes and recharge for this amazing expedition ahead. Your mind wanders dreamily into all the activities you have planned for this winter wonderland trip... husky safari, northern lights, snowmobiles... you've even planned to stay a night or two in a real igloo! Unsurprisingly, the plane experiences a fair amount of turbulence along the way, but nothing too troubling. The air hostess wakes you a few times to offer you a drink, perhaps some food? Politely declining, you return to your slumber.
You are asleep for a solid 10 hours before a large jolt startles you. You look around, the other passengers felt it too and are looking around rather alarmed. A voice sounds out above you â€œLadies and Gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. (Jolt) We are experiencing some complications with the engines. Please remain calm and stay seated.
But you cannot suppress the rising panic you feel deep within the pit of your stomach. You glance toward the lady beside you and she seems to have turned bleach white. Her eyes stare straight ahead, unblinking. A sharp pull nearly knocks you out of your seat. Suddenly, the oxygen masks drop from above you and lands conveniently in front of your face... but this makes that unnerving panic within you ring out and an involuntary yelp escapes you. Another harsh bump lurches you into the window. You make a grab for the mask and hastily fasten it over your face. All of a sudden, there is a forceful push and the plane begins to swiftly descend.
There is a collective distress happening around you but you cannot focus, you are too busy staring out of the window at the plane wing that seems to be emitting a large red flame and billowing smoke. You cannot believe your eyes. You spin around in your seat and see the lady beside you has not moved a muscle. Her flesh has disintegrated to a pasty green and she hasn't even managed to put her oxygen mask on. The plane is shaking mercilessly now and a sinking realisation sets in... this could be the end. You grab the mask and clumsily try to help her, the wires are tangled and you cannot get it over her head. Screams plead out around you, filling your ears, your head, your brain. You know you are rocketing toward the ground and the collision will be unrelenting. You desperately fumble with the oxygen mask and just when you move the last wire out of the way, there is a deafening explosion... Black.
When you awake, your limbs are almost frozen numb. Your eyelids flitter and the pain hits you all at once. You slowly move to sit up and look around you. Your eyes meet a devastating sight. The plane is but a crumpled wreck in the snow and bodies surround you... no signs of life anywhere. The blizzard is thick and the cold is bitter to the bone.

Sometimes, memories are the worst form of torture. The village used to be a cheerful, bustling township in the midst of the Kingdom. Now, it is but a forlorn kenopsia. When the curse fell upon the district, nearly everyone fled in fear. There are only a handful of villagers who still occupy the town, too afraid to leave incase the looming presence that attacked the village all those years ago deems them dishonourable. That same formidable beast now resides in what was once a mighty castle just past the edge of the village. The once tall, proud standing turrets and flags now lay in pieces, broken and displaced. For the most part, the beast is a silent resident, only emerging to hunt food or remind the townspeople of his intimidating presence and complete control.
The cursed goblet was the cause of the heinous destruction. Everyone in all the kingdom, from the depths of the deepest valley to the peaks of the tallest mountain knew about the famed beast and his prized goblet. The goblet was just one of his many, many treasures but this piece in particular was special. They say it held the power to transform any cowardly boy into an almighty god, strong and respected. Feared across all the Kingdom. But the beast would never let anyone get close enough to confirm the rumours. At 58 feet long from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail, deep crimson scales and a phoenix coloured crest. Dark, billowing smoke leaked menacingly from his nostrils and his eyes were ablaze with fury. He was a force to be reckoned with and they called himâ€¦ Drakon.
One day, a young pauper took it upon himself to go in search of the goblet. He trekked across bright yellow fields, over cobbled grey bridges and trailed through royal blue rivers until he reached the cave in which Drakon occupied. Tiptoeing in ever so quietly, he attempted to take possession of the goblet but just as he was about to lay a finger upon the goblet, Drakon awoke. He let out a magnificent bellow and the pauper was reduced to a pile of ash in an instant. Drakon was so infuriated by the arrogance and disobedience of the people that he immediately began a frenzied rampage through the kingdom. He destroyed whole villages and forests, anything in his path was torched to rubble by the boundless flames his deep breaths produced. Finally, he began his attack on the King's castle. People fled in hurried panic, some cowered in their homes and others were silly enough to try to stop him. Almost 20 years later, the Kingdom is a shell of what it once was. That merciless day will remain a regretful memory forever, the day the kingdom burned; the day the townspeople lost everything.
The few who still remain in a state of surviving know what must be done, but all are too afraid to attempt it. If only someone was brave enough to take the goblet and release the kingdom from Drakon's immortal graspâ€¦Book Now Wellingborough ONLY

They used to shout my name, now they whisper it. A disgraced god, I used to own them. They were my things. Poseidon, god of the sea!' they used to chant. I was a feared, respected divinity. Worshipped. Now, I am but a hushed murmur. A punished inferior. An exiled mongrel. He will pay for what he has done.
Almost ten thousand years since the mysterious city suddenly sank into the emerald depths of the ocean. The stunning citadels and majestic statues now lay sunken and forgotten on the sea bed. Dancing corals creep up through the cracks in the architecture, lush thick moss covers the once pristine white, sandy temples and the brightly coloured fish dart playfully in and out of the windows. Silence deafens the atmosphere surrounding the excluded fortress. Occasionally, a hammerhead will sweep through, disrupting the peaceful solitude, but for the most part, this is the city that time forgot.
Today, you are on the verge of a break through, you can feel it in your very core. But then again, you've been wrong before. The last twenty-three years of research has been filled with false hope and dead ends, excitement and disappointment, trying to be the first to discover exactly why the curious city abruptly sank into the dark azure depths of the ocean. There is a whole new batch of old scrolls to sift through, extracted from a flooded parlour in the large sanctuary you and your team have recently started exploring. This was previously an inaccessible part of the citadel, you had to really push for the permission to bring this type of machinery down to the ocean floor. Hunched over your desk, magnifying glass in hand, you squint intently at the magical symbols and cyphers on the browned parchment. From what you've gathered over the years, you can decipher most of it. Shuffling through a few of the vellums, you can tell at a glance that this information is nothing extraordinary to the others that you have collected. It's discouraging to say the least, but you persevere.
Your radio crackles through before it connects to the surface and a friendly voice sounds out. Come in, Aqua. What's the situation? Charlie has been a dedicated member of the research team since the expedition began. He's a kind of aloof soul, you can't help but adore him. Even if he does insist on silly code names. You smile through your response. â€œNothing of importance but theres still a few more to look through. Could you send Hydra in again to grab another pile? There is another slight pause and a crackle. Will do. The forecast up here is predicting crazy stuff. The news people reckon there's a huge tsunami headed towards Englandâ€¦ can you believe that?! I think the facility might get a little shaky so don't be alarmed if you feel a couple of vibrations.
Turning your attention back to the delicate papers, you can feel an all to familiar sinking feeling in your stomach. You will it to go away and try to remain optimistic. You happen upon an unusual looking arrangement of symbols, ones you haven't seen before. It's curious to say the least, your brows tie themselves together as you hurry to find a piece of parchment that might translate it. You study it meticulously, translating it a few times and a few more times again for fear of mistake. But there is no mistake. The transcription stares back at you, plain and clear and you are confused by what your brain scrambles to comprehend. From what you can deduce, it's a sort of schedule. A prediction calendar. A list of dates, exactly three millennials apart. At the foot of the scroll, there are a couple more cyphers translating to a very small piece of text;
Triton stole the offering,
It has yet to reappear.
The cause of townspeople's suffering,
Every three thousand years.
Should the legacy stay hidden,
The city shall ascend.
As realisation sinks in, excitement starts to overwhelm you. You've managed to stumble upon something massive. This could lead you to the answer you've been searching for all these years! You're just about to radio through to Charlie to share the good news when your eyes fall upon a date on the scroll. It's today. In exactly an hourâ€¦ You stop dead as a rising panic floods your body, coupled with a hot flush. Your memory flashes back to something Charlie said earlier huge tsunami, England, crazy stuff and suddenly it all falls into place. Atlantis is due to resurface today in an angry charge to destroy the world. Poseidon was never avenged and he intends to share his misery with the mortals who exiled him in a bid to anger the gods more particularly, Triton. A thought crosses your mind to something you read a few weeks ago about an offering left for the gods from Poseidon. It was supposed to be his ticket into the high council. Assuming you can track down the location of the offering, recover it and return it, you may be able to stop the mass cataclysmic destruction about to reign down upon the world. At that very moment, a great quivering tremor engulfs the facility around you. You make a swift grab for the table to steady yourself. Looking out of the window, you can see panicked fish dashing to get away from the area and little air bubbles appear to be escaping from the buildings.

You swallow the feeling of immense fear at the back of your throat and push through the terror pulsing through your body. â€œYou've done this so many times before...this is what you do you mutter to yourself as you continue to find your team.
The shadows that pour over the furniture make the huge mansion look so incredibly empty. You start to remember the history, the stories. The first tragic story documented was of the beautiful Abigail. An innocent little girl whose life was stolen by her cruel, abusive parents who locked her away in her bedroom for years. Tragically she was taken by the flames of a blazing fire, burnt and alone. Some say they still see a little girl walking the hallways of the huge house. Since Abigail's death in the early 1940s, there has been a terrifying amount of disappearances and accidents within the walls, including death. The most recent event being a group of teenagers who were thought to have entered as a dare but none have been seen since 4 nights ago.
You and your leading paranormal investigative team start to set up equipment throughout the house, taking one abandoned room at a time. Hours passed as you attempt to contact any lingering spirits. With no luck, until a deafening scream echoes through the emptiness of the house. You run to see but as soon as you turn the corner, there he is, your best cameraman suspended mid-air, screaming with no more noise coming out. Eyes so wide with terror before his lifeless body drops to the floor. The sound of his screams still echoing through the house. Tears burn your eyes as you run to get your phone to call someone and the door slams behind you leaving you and your surviving teammates locked in with no way out.
You have to be logical, keep a cool head. You've dealt with unhappy spirits before, but something just doesn't feel right. Something more sinister is in play now. One step forward and you freeze. There it is, there's that doll. Realisation sets in Abigail?Book Now Kettering ONLY
