Fairground Frights coming to Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach

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

All the rides and attractions will be open from 5-8pm on October 28-31
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 spooky characters roaming the park, scary light projections
on the rollercoaster, a host of photo opportunities and all sorts of
Halloween fun.

Aaron Jones, the Pleasure Beach’s marketing director, said: “Fairground
Frights is a first for us and for Great Yarmouth. Halloween is proving more and more popular and we thought this would be a great chance to
showcase the park in the autumn while offering something a bit different.

“We have worked hard to come up with some exciting ideas, make sure
all the scares are socially-distanced and safe, and we hope everyone has
a suitably sinister time in their bubbles.” As well as a spooky twist to the many rides and attractions, there will also be lots of surprises too, the chance to carve a pumpkin, and the atmosphere will be boosted with a live DJ playing a specially curated and petrifying playlist of Halloween hits.

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

Aaron lived in America for several years and said Halloween is a major
part of the US calendar. He said: “It is a major family event over there and I wanted to bring a flavour of that to the Pleasure Beach. It is all about family-friendly scares and that is what we will be offering on the

Fairground Frights will be open to those five and over, but those younger
Pleasure Beach fans will still be able to enjoy Halloween fun as the park
will be open from 12-4 across the October half-term for everyone with
some family activities.

Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach is working on the late-night opening with
Norfolk-based event producer Ollie George, which is known for its high-
profile concert and events seasons at Taverham Hall and the Norfolk
Showground and for collaborating on the Polar Express train experiences.

Aaron said: “We are really pleased to partner with Ollie and his team on
this. Their experience of theatre, events and family entertainment will
help us create plenty of family frights.”
