About

After a sell-out 2021 and 2022, “After Dark: Nights to Die For” returns with a new horrifying theme and even more extreme psychological terrors this October. 

The theme for 2023 is Revenance, the name originating from folklore to mean an animated corpse that is believed to have been revived from death to haunt the living. The word revenance is derived from the old French word, 'revenant,' meaning 'the returning.' 

This October, visitors will be immersed in an intense, psychological multi-sensory horror house exclusively from the Bath attraction dedicated to Mary Shelley and her legendary gothic tale, Frankenstein.

Set over five floors in a 300-year-old town house, the terrifying secret of 37 Gay Street is revealed, centring around a young girl believed to have been persecuted here some 200 years ago. Demonic beings, resurrected by satanic rituals, play out the terrifying childhood games of her cruel past. Will you navigate your way out to freedom, or become their despairing playmate for eternity?

Will you go out... After Dark? 

“After Dark: Nights to Die For - Revenance" will run from 6 - 10:30pm every evening. 

The event invites visitors to:

- Venture through rooms cloaked in darkness and be lured into twisted childhood games featuring live actors, special effects and disturbing aromas and soundscapes. 

- Brave the sinister underbelly of the House in the immersive basement walkthrough experience.

- Decipher the ramblings of a deranged mind within Victor’s Attic Escape Room, and find their way to safety.

- Steady their nerves in the atmospheric Bloody Mary's Bar and sample the attraction's exclusive "Death Wish" cocktail, plus other frightfully good drinks.

Presale tickets from just £15 will go on general sale from Friday 9 June 2023 on the House of Frankenstein website.

Throughout October, Mary Shelley’s House of Frankenstein will continue offering its classic experience from 11am to 5pm (last entry 4pm). Saturdays 10am – 6pm (last entry 5pm).
