Prepare Your Hot Tub
A party is a great reason to freshen up your Sundance Hot Tub! If it has been a few months since you last changed your Hot Tubs water, now is a great time to drain and clean it, both for your Halloween Party and to see you through the coming winter months.
After draining your Hot Tub, fill up with fresh water and add 100ML's of Prevent II for stain & scale control while the water is still cold. Use a test strip to check the Alkalinity and pH levels are where they should be, then wait at least 5 Hours for the water to heat up to temperature before adding 30 Grams of Sun-Boom to ensure your water is safe to use. Always leave your Sundance Hot Tub Cover open with the Jets running for 20 Minutes after you add any chemicals to the spa.
Now you have a Hot Tub filled with clean, clear water, you are ready to get the party started!
Decorate Your Hot Tub
Decorating in and around your Sundance Hot Tub is a fantastic way to set the mood.
Be sure to turn your Sundance Hot Tubs Water temperature up as high as you and your guests can handle it so that you get the haunting look of steam rising from your Hot Tub in the crisp October air. Putting a fog machine close to the Hot Tub will help to create a truly eeire experience!
You can help make your Sundance Hot Tub look spooky by choosing either the green or red option of the MultiGlow LED Spa Lighting System. If you have an 880 or 980 Series Hot Tub, now would be a great time to turn the SilentAir Injectors on to give your Hot Tub the sinister appearance of a boiling cauldron!
Drape some fake cobwebs over your hot tub step and around the Synthetic Cabinet to give your hot tub, spa, jacuzzi or whirlpool a mysterious look, and place some witches hats, brooms and fake tombstones around the outside of the Hot Tub to add to the ghostly ambiance.
Amplify the goulish atmosphere by dropping some plastic body parts or skeleton bones in to your Hot Tubs Water and let them float around - Your friends will freak out when they hop in to the spa!
Prepare Some Snacks
No party is complete without some tasty snacks. For a sweet snack why not make a Black Cat Cake and decorate sugar cookies or cupcakes. Some other excellent Halloween based snacks are Spooky Spider Devilled Eggs (use olives to decorate the eggs), Mummy Dogs (Hot Dogs wrapped in dough with mustard and poppy seed eyes), Eyeball Nachos (use meatballs, sour cream and olives to make eyeballs) or good old fashioned Pumpkin Spice Muffins!
As for drinks, we recommend serving blood-red fruit punch (mix cranberry juice, apple juice & grape juice then add cola and some sliced strawberries) or a lovely Pumpkin Spice Latte. If you are interested in something a little more exotic (and adult) why not make a Blood & Sand (3/4 oz Blood orange juice, 3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth, 3/4 oz Cherry Heering, 3/4 oz Blended Scotch) or an El Diablo (1½ oz. reposado tequila,½ oz. crème de cassis,½ oz. fresh lime juice,2–3 oz. ginger beer).
Once the drinks are flowing freely, remember to take a few good selfies to post on social media to let everyone know what a fantastic time you are having!
Have Your Playlist Ready To Rock!
A party isn't a party without great music, and great Halloween tunes can really help to set the mood. Synch up your tablet or smartphone to the optional Sundance Bluewave Spa Stereo System and blast out some Halloween classics!
You could have the Jaws Theme song playing on a loop whilst your guests are getting ready to soak in the Hot Tub, then play some of these classics to get everyone in the spirit of things:
Somebody's Watching Me - Rockwell
Thriller - Michael Jackson
Enter Sandman - Metallica
Monster Mash - Bobby "Boris" Pickett & The Crypt-Kickers
Ghostbusters - Ray Parker Jr
Feed My Frankenstein - Alice Cooper
In addittion to playing scary good music, why not project a movie on to your hot tub cover? Imagine how much fun it would be watching Scream, Get Out, Beetlejuice, Halloween, Carrie or The Exorcist from the comfort of your Sundance Hot Tub!
Play Some Games
Playing some games in your Hot Tub will help make your Halloween Party even more unforgettable.
Start the games session off by awarding a prize for the person with the best costume, then have a Scary Story Contest. Pass your waterproof flashlight around the Hot Tub and share your best Scary Stories - Have a prize available for the most terrifying tale!
After the stories are all told, a game of "Hot Tub Guess Who" is in order. Write the names of famous horror movie characters or infamous grizzly characters from history on slips of paper and put them in a bucket.
Now have everyone in the Hot Tub pick out a name, then have people take turns to act out their character until someone else guesses who they are supposed to be.
So there you have it, everything you need to make your Sundance Hot Tub the destination of choice for your friends and neighbours this Halloween!
