Ahead of Halloween, the UK’s favourite amusement park, Blackpool Pleasure Beach, is launching a spook-tacular drive in cinema, Scream Screen. Inviting the public into a world of the unknown, the cinema will be running from the 27 - 31 of
October. Hosting six screenings, following last year’s skell-out event, the park’s attitude is the morgue the merrier! Scream Screen is guaranteed to bring a fright, with hair-raising film choices that will horrify the creepiest of critics, including The Conjuring, Saw and Candyman, leaving you with a #restingwitchface. Ensuring there’s something for everyone, the park will also be hosting a screening of all-time family favourite, Hocus Pocus. A full list of screenings and timings can be found below:

Another terrifying twist involves creepy characters joining the screenings and surprising guests when they least expect it, adding to the fear factor. When arriving for the unnerving experience, attendees are asked to show or quote their boo-king reference to the car park attendant, plus their name and postcode. An attendant will then give out the radio frequency for visitors to tune into their car. Further directions will be given on the parking of vehicles. Guests are encouraged to arrive early to guarantee enough time to get the best possible cinema experience. Snacks such as popcorn, hotdogs and a range of drinks will be available to purchase on site.

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 from 25 October - 2 November!
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.
