Escapade launches world’s first interactive Halloween Flash Web site

UKPRwire, October 17 2010 – Escapade fancy dress has unveiled an interactive and innovative flash based website based around Halloween and designed for user entertainment.

As one of the UK’s predominant fancy dress companies, Escapade have learned a thing or two about Halloween in its 28 year history. The company has combined this knowledge with its love for the fun of the season and have created a Halloween website unlike any other in the world.

The elaborate flash site www.halloweenescapade.com allows users the chance to really get to enjoy the season of Halloween in a completely interactive and unique way. The stunning site is set out like an adventure land and the longer that the user spends on it, the more they uncover, find and enjoy.

The one of a kind site features a fully interactive flash adventure with graphically enhanced games, food recipes, a plethora of essential Halloween freebies, short stories, cocktail recipes, Halloween stories from around the world and articles ranging from the history of Halloween to legends about notorious characters associated with the season.

An even more exciting feature of the site is that it changes completely between day and night. During the day time the site has content and graphics that are family friendly and aimed at children, but after 7:30pm all of the content on the site alters drastically with a completely new selection of graphic games and content, making it worth a visit at least twice. The site is the first of its kind in the Halloween market and an amazing development for the festive season.

The idea for the site came about while researching the Halloween market in the UK and the rest of the world and discovering that there was a gap in the market. While there are a plethora of websites out there dedicated to selling costumes and providing useful Halloween information, there are very few Halloween sites dedicated towards user interactive fun. This is why Escapade decided to create a site dedicated to the user, allowing them to really get into the spirit of Halloween in an interactive and fun way.

Escapade Director, Bhupendra Maisuria said: “The aim of the site is to bring the fun of the Halloween season back to its roots in the United Kingdom. The majority of the world believes that Halloween is an American holiday due to the popularity of the season in the United States. However, it is important to remember that Halloween is British and we are excited about the opportunity of giving the public a chance to reconnect with this fact in a fun and interactive manner.”
