From the moment you walk through the gate at Dracula’s you are transported into a spooky immersive theatre performance. Met at the door by ghosts and ghouls, you are then taken inside the Transylvanian castle in groups to begin the evening. I won’t give away the surprises, but since the renovation there have been some new additions, so prepare for a fright or two before you reach your table!
Once inside we flashed our VIP tickets for entrance into the downstairs bar area for our glass of complimentary bubbly and some Halloween worthy canapés! After a chicken eyeball or two we jumped on the ghost train. Top tip: once on the train, hold tight on to those drinks, and prepare for a scare! Our vampire waitress for the evening met at us at our table, took our order, and before we knew it our starters and mysterious vampire cocktails had been delivered. The vampire rock band played some retro hits while we ate, which set the tone nicely for the rest of the 70’s themed show.
The main course arrived before the show started, and we were just finishing off our desert it began. All three courses were fantastic; a lot of thought goes into the menu. It has the Dracula’s flare throughout, even down to the desert, a chocolate vampire coffin filled with ice cream!
The show itself was fantastic! If you came expecting the Gold Coast’s answer to the Moulin Rouge, you might be disappointed. But what Dracula’s does do, they do very well! Their newest show, Retro Vampt is a 70’s themed Variety Show, with a fabulous mix of burlesque, acrobatics, stand up comedy and well known cover songs, all with a light hearted vampire twist!
The new show Retro Vampt is on now and can be booked online at www.draculas.com.au.
