Pack the station wagon and venture up the mountain for another stay at the Overlook. We've got you booked in Room 237 – that's not a problem … is it? Every viewing of 'The Shining' unearths a new fragment of the mystery, terror and hidden secret implanted in by director Stanley Kubrick. Follow Danny's tricycle ride through the halls and watch Wendy's prowess with the baseball bat as the hotel's "shine" starts getting to Jack. If you squint, the Zoo's green surrounds could be mistaken for a hedge maze – but don't worry, Johnny's nowhere to be seen.
