If the rides don’t make you scream at Blackpool Pleasure Beach – then the ghosts, ghouls and goblins will.

The amusement park is turning blood red on Wednesday, October 31.

Vampire Pleasure Beach returns with a special Horror Maze and a host of frightening figures lurking across the 42-acre attraction.

The park already has Valhalla, a fiery fantasy landscape of the Vikings in one of the world’s biggest dark rides.

Even your little monsters won’t be able to escape the zombies as Characters SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer and their pals will be on hand to scare away any baddies.

Meanwhile, the Chinese Puzzle Maze will be transformed into the Horror Maze and there will be fire-eaters and stilt-walkers roaming the attraction as well as live music 0n a Fright Night Stage located opposite Wallace & Gromit’s Thrill-O-Matic ride. All guests arriving in Halloween costume will receive a free blood-red cocktail upon arrival at the attraction.

Vampire Pleasure Beach wristbands are available from 4pm and can be booked online for £18 in advance or £22 on the gate.

Blackpool Pleasure Beach will be open until 10pm; guests who already have a wristband for the day are welcome to enjoy the rest of the events taking place this Halloween.
