Hallowe’en isn’t just for the kids . . . there are ‘fraidy cat adults in need of a good haunt, too!
Whilst we have lots of families visiting Blackpool, couples and groups of friends also visit in their droves. There’s plenty to creep up on adults, from spine-chilling attractions to exceptional entertainment!
Horror Movie Drive-In Cinema
In an exciting first for Blackpool, Blackpool Pleasure Beach is hosting a frighteningly good drive-in cinema alongside Vampire Pleasure Beach and a programme of fang-tastic events and activities.
Screening three horror classics, guests are invited to enjoy the chills from the comfort of their own car from 29th – 31st October. Opening with spooky thriller, Nightmare on Elm Street, visitors simply tune into the radio frequency given on arrival and prepare for a scare. There are three screenings to be enjoyed, each starting at 20:30 with the car park open from 19:30.
The screenings are as follows:
Classic cinema snacks including popcorn and hotdogs will be available, served by Blackpool Pleasure Beach’s very own team of ghosts and ghouls. Priced at £16.00 per car, guests are advised to arrive early to secure a good spot. Due to the nature of the films shown at the drive-in cinema, this event is adults only (18+).

Pasaje del Terror
Celebrating 20 years of scaring the wits out of its visitors in 2018, Pasaje del Terror promises to go “beyond the limits of fear”, and from the feedback we’ve received (we’re massive wimps that are still mustering the bravery to visit), the attraction absolutely delivers.
Located in the Casino Building at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Pasaje del Terror has a theatrical setting arranged into 20 sets and with around 18 actors lurking in the darkness. They represent famous characters from the world’s most prolific horror movies, and don’t worry, they’ll be sure to say hello . . .
The experience, which lasts about twelve minutes (depending on how fast you can run!) is terrifyingly realistic, with multiple special effects, fabulous costuming and frantic energy, and you’ll be left breathless and trembling until you find the exit.
Whilst on Blackpool Pleasure Beach grounds, you don’t need to purchase park admission to experience Pasaje del Terror as it is just outside. There is no official age restriction, but the team don’t recommend it for anyone under ten as a minimum. You’ll be completely safe at all times, but it truly is frightening!
On 27 October, the attraction will remain open until 22:00. Dare you leave in the dark?
Single tickets are just £7.00, and can be purchased here.
Circus of Horrors – The Psycho Asylum
Blackpool is devilishly lucky; the fabulous Circus of Horrors troupe return to perform frequently at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, and they’re back this year to make your toes curl!
The company has been touring for more than 22 years, and for 2018, they’re performing a brand new and shocking show: The Psycho Asylum.
The show is an amazing amalgamation of bizarre and fantastical circus acts that tell a shock-horror story, interwoven with magic, rock ‘n’ roll and loads of laughs. You’ll see fire eaters, contortionists, aerial acts, people being sawn in half, jugglers, and performers suspending themselves . . . by their hair. This gruesome spectacle features a wonderful soundscape, and is performed with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek.
The show is not suitable for children. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult, and parents and guardians must bear in mind that strong language and nudity will feature in the show.
Tickets start from £18.00, and can be purchased here.
Steve Steinman’s The Meat Loaf Story
The enigmatic Steve Steinman returns to The Grand Theatre Blackpool on the 2nd of November with this epic musical tour-de-force that honours Meat Loaf’s record breaking album, Bat Out of Hell in The Meat Loaf Story.
Steve is also the creative force behind the exceptionally popular Vampires Rock, and puts on a larger-than-life performance against the backdrop of fabulous staging in collaboration with his onstage band. Steve appeared on prime-time show Stars in Their Eyes in the early 90s and has been delivering uncanny performances in tribute to Meat Loaf with humour and charm ever since.
Performing Meat Loaf’s greatest hits, such as I Would Do Anything for Love, Dead Ringer for Love and Bat Out of Hell, this Halloween spectacular will have you belting out the power chords along with Steve and dancing in the aisle.
