Creepy crawlies and a spooky circus maze feature at Dreamland’s Get Spooked festival

A spooky circus and creepy crawlies will feature in Dreamland’s Get Spooked festival this half term.

Dreamland will be laying on nine days of spine-tingling fun for all ages (and bravery levels)  as the park opens every day from October 19-27 for the autumn holidays.

The park is free to enter and will be open each day from 11am to 5pm, with ghoulish party games, devilish disco dancing, rides and a variety of creepy crafts and activities laid on.

Little devils can join the Mandinga Arts carnival parade each day, or see the creatures lurking in the Dreamland Ark. There will be Halloween themed workshops to make seasonal treats, and Sunday Family Film Screenings with a spooky twist. Dressing up is encouraged!

And brand new for 2019 will be a family-friendly maze for little and big kids – The Spooky Circus Maze. Using one of the sets from Screamland (but with fewer scares), brave families will be able to creep and crawl along the forgotten hallways of the abandoned carnival – where discarded candy floss isn’t the only thing left behind…

Entry to The Spooky Circus is £3 on the door and is free for Dreamland Members (recommended for ages 7 to 12 years at parents’ discretion).

Families can buy standard ride wristbands in advance online to save 25% on door prices, or AAA wristbands to include rides and access to the Spooky Circus Maze.

Get Spooked is Dreamland’s family friendly Halloween offering by day, as the park morphs into the  scarefest Screamland after dark on selected nights, with scare mazes, live actors, gruesome food and drink, and rides running all evening.

Screamland runs for six nights between from October 18 to November 2. Tickets including access to all scare mazes and rides are on sale now, but Ride Only tickets are also available for those who prefer to experience the park at night without the scares.
