Closed for far too long, le Manoir de Paris prepares something huge to celebrate Halloween 2021 as it should be. Although Paris haunted house usually throws for Halloween a special show, this year, they launch an outside-the-wall festival. Manoir Halloween Festival is to be enjoyed from October 22 to 31, 2021 at the Grande Halle de la Villette, if you dare.
Because in 2021, Le Manoir de Paris thinks big, this festival filled with scary creatures will cover 6,00sqm. And this year, it is not one but 3 haunted houses that Le Manoir de Paris is making, each providing a 15-minute tour.
A never-before-seen experience in a reconstructed village coming straight from the world of the dead.
In addition to the haunted houses, this Manoir Halloween Festival also features several scream zones (places to meet monsters and enjoy the decor), stands to satisfy your hunger and many entertainments such as a movie theater screening horror movies and axe throwing.
Le Manoir de Paris dropped the names of the four haunted houses for Halloween 2021: "Sanctuary" - a former orphanage where silence is the watchword -, "The Slaughterhouse" - a former slaughterhouse like La Villette used to be -, and "Asylum"... it sounds... promisingly scary!
Also on the menu of this festival, an immersive story-telling experience around the "American Horror Stories" series. In a tent like for a firecamp, the bravest of you can enjoy the scariest urban legends told by a somehow paranoid forest ranger.
As soon as we got in the festival, we were in the mood: monsters welcome us with a little show (performed at the opening of each session). We meet scary creatures everywhere throughout the festival and they do not miss to bust us and tell us about their misfortunes. The whole to black metal.
All along the tour, we can see that the Le Manoir went over the top this year. The place is wide and reminds us of the concept of festivals and other theme parks in the U.S.: (almost) as many stands to grab food or a souvenir as rides.
Four haunted houses were initially planned. But the recent storm that hit France a few days before the opening destroyed the Zombie Market - that was set outside - before it opened to zombies. "Asylum", "Sanctuary" and "The Slaughterhouse" are open. Le Manoir de Paris regulars will recognize the former themes developed by the Le Manoir in the 10th arrondissement, a few background props and characters. Often hidding in the shadow, they are waiting for us to come out and make us scream with terror.
The backgrounds and characters are still very well done. Between the abandoned children from the orphanage, somewhat crazy, and the nutcases from the asylum, you will meet some very lovely people... The experience takes it a step further by using your sense of smell. Expect to smell some rotting scents...
Be always on your watch, keep your eyes peeled, monsters are hiding everywhere. And do not forget to walk around the festival: go upstairs, a storyteller and a fortune teller are waiting for you and go outside to complete the zombies assault course. If you love Bulky Games, you might enjoy it a lot.
