Hallowe’en isn’t just for the kids . . . adults are in need of a good haunt, too!

Scream Screen is guaranteed to bring a fright with their five screenings, with hair-raising film choices that will horrify the creepiest of critics, including Scream, Annabelle Comes Home and The Invisible Man, leaving you with a #restingwitchface.

Pasaje del Terror
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 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.
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 24 and 31 October, the attraction will remain open until 22:00. Dare you leave in the dark?
Single tickets are just £7.50 if you book in advance, and can be purchased here.
Please be assured that Pasaje del Terror is adhering to the latest Government guidance. You must wear a mask throughout the attraction and follow the social distancing markers when queuing.
Circus of Horrors
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 and will be an immersive celebration of its 25 year anniversary.
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. Find out more information here.
Tickets start from £10.00, and can be purchased here.
