Not one to put be put off by the scary things in life, Mid Ulster MLA Sandra Overend and her son Nathan were chased by a chainsaw wielding maniac and came out the other end.

Commending the award-winning Fright Night attraction at the Jungle NI, she has 'dared' anyone 'brave enough' to give it a go.

“I was delighted to drop in at The Jungle outside Moneymore last Saturday night, with my children, who were attending the annual ‘Fright Night’ attraction, and came away thoroughly impressed with the entire experience," Mrs Overend

“The attraction is very professional, well put together, and above all, great fun. A great deal of work obviously goes into this annual event, and all credit must go to Bobby Carmichael and his team at The Jungle. As a farm business which diversified and has thrived, The Jungle provides an example to many other local entrepreneurs that good ideas and good products will succeed.

“It was no surprise for me to learn that ‘Fright Night’ has won a number awards, including Outdoor NI’s Best Unique Outdoor Experience the prestigious Outstanding Visitor Experience award from Tourism NI.

“I was speaking to people attending the event from all across Northern Ireland, and it is fantastic for all of us that live here in Mid Ulster to have such an attraction on our doorsteps. It is great to see an increase in visitors to the area drawn in by innovative attractions such as this, and I would encourage anyone that hasn’t attended a ‘Fright Night’ to give it a try, if you’re feeling brave enough!”
