Mazes, blocking hoods and spooky seances promised for Screamland at Dreamland

Screamland at Deamland

Screamland is back at Dreamland  for its third year – and promises to be bigger than ever.

The scare-fest, staged for the first time since Dreamland’s £25 million overhaul – will this year have six mazes open for six nights in October.

Screamland is upping the fear factor for 2017 with all-new mazes and disorientating experiences involving vision-blocking hoods and areas that visitors will need to crawl through.

Daredevil visitors who are looking for even more frights can book a live and spooky séance at the park, which will be taking place in the Victorian folly building. Tickets to the séance will be bookable on each night at an additional cost.

There will be street performers, live music and DJs on the Scenic Stage – including Radio 1’s Rock Show presenter Daniel P Carter, Rockaoke, and more to be announced.

A Screamland ticket includes access to all six scare mazes at night, unlimited use of the rides in the amusement park, access to entertainment (including live music) and The Prop Store. Spaces are limited so book your tickets now.
