Get ready to enjoy eerie evenings at Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach this Halloween! The park is opening late in the run up to October 31st where visitors can enjoy mysterious moments and creepy experiences during four special evenings called “Fairground Frights”.

All of the rides and attractions will be open from 5-8pm on October 28, 29, 30 and 31 with a Halloween theme. Could there be something sinister lurking on the Ghost Train, will the Fun Factory be fang-tastic, and could the world-famous Rollercoaster boast a ghost?

There will be several spooky characters roaming some of the rides and park, petrifying projections on the rollercoaster, a live Halloween DJ, a host of photo opportunities plus much, much more.

Everyone coming along is also being encouraged to dress up as ghosts, ghouls or someone sinister with prizes available for the best spooky outfits.

Fairground Frights will be open to those five years old and over, under 12’s must be supervised by a fare paying more mature person.

The event is priced at just £17 per person and everyone coming through the gates needs a valid ticket to enter.

There is a limited number of tickets for each of the four 3-hour time slots so book online now to reserve your space in this first of its kind event!
