Hallowe’en isn’t just for the kids . . . adults are 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!
Pasaje del Terror - throughout October
Pasaje del Terror promises to go “beyond the limits of fear”, and from the feedback we’ve received (we’re massive wimps still mustering the courage to visit), the attraction absolutely delivers. Will you brave the UK’s longest-running and most intense scare-attraction?
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 a socially-distanced 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.
No Pleasure Beach park ticket is required to experience Pasaje del Terror.
On 23 and 30 October, the attraction will remain open until 22:00. Dare you leave in the dark? Single tickets are just £10.50 if you book in advance, and can be purchased here. The attraction is not suitable for children under ten.
Circus of Horrors - 27 – 31 October
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 from 27 October – 31 October.
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 but there are child-friendly matinee performances at 4pm every day. Find out more information here.
Tickets start from £21.00, and can be purchased here.
Journey To Hell – 7-30 October (selected dates)
Journey To Hell Freak Nights is a terrifying experience led through nine scare zones in Blackpool Pleasure Beach. The hair-raising 90 minute interactive event will guide you around the 125-year-old park after dark for a shock-filled adventure.
The terror-triggering areas include: The Legend Of The Cursed River Caves with demons everywhere to curse your souls; Sirens of Infusion, dragging you to their abyss and immersing your senses with the darkness; the Hell Tunnels; The Controllers; Hexpress, a witchcraft pilgrimage; and The Lost, a hellish maze of rooms.
Journey To hell is restricted to those aged 10 years and older. The event is a physically demanding environment and is in no way suitable for those with a nervous or weak disposition. Those who do get too scared will be escorted to the nearest emergency exit.
Will you have the fright of your life this Halloween?
