Visitors crossing the Irish sea on ferries from Dublin to Holyhead
will be able to enjoy a new attraction in Wales.
Those disembarking at Holyhead and crossing to the mainland might be keen to see north Wales, with its mountains, castles and coastal scenery among the attractions.
However, others will head southwards, where there is plenty more of all these things - and a new place to enjoy an adventure.
The Silver Mountain is the newest permanent scare attraction in Britain, located between Aberystwyth and Llangurig.
As the name suggests, it is based underground in a mountain and its prime feature is the Black Chasm, which may be as scary as it sounds.
Not only is it dark and deep, but visitors will be accompanied by a bunch of Orcs, who will lead those brave enough to enter deep into the darkness, amid sounds, sights and other experiences that will bring plenty of screams- as well as more than a few laughs.
The attraction is scary enough for it not to be recommended for those aged under 12, while a more extreme Fright Night experience is on offer each Friday after dark.
Visitors exploring mid-Wales will find plenty more to enjoy as well.
Those who fancy a traditional day on the beach can visit the golden sands of Aberystwyth, which has its own ruined castle and looks out onto Cardigan Bay, where dolphins can often be seen swimming.
Aberystwyth is also the starting point for the Vale of Rheidol Railway, a steam train that follows the valley gradually uphill until passengers can disembark at the Devil's Bridge, which spans the Devil's Punchbowl, a smoothed-out bowl of rock round which the waters of the river swirl spectacularly.
Mid-Wales has plenty of fine scenery to enjoy and includes the southern end of the Snowdonia National Park, among the highlighte of which is the 2,930 ft peak of Cadair Idris.
Alternatively, from mid-Wales it is not too far south to the Brecon Beacons, another mountainous national park.
So for visitors to mid-Wales, there is certainly plenty to see - and be scared by.
