thrilling and chilling offerings, as Southport's Lord Street

of Southport on 31 October 2014. The Halloween carnival, at

fire eaters performing! But the main attraction in
Pleasureland will run from 24 October to 2 November. For

Park owner, Norman Wallis (above), said:-
“We know just how much kids love Halloween, and we have the perfect
safe and secure environment for them to enjoy some trick or treat
activity and a whole lot more. Kids can interact with spooky
characters, watch one of our Halloween performances and see glowing
UV puppets act out a ghostly tale in their own mini haunted house.
The big scare experiences are great – and we’re huge fans; but we
thought it was time that some attention was paid to delivering a
fun, happy Halloween experience that the whole family could enjoy.
Our family Halloween experience is not about scaring people; we’re
about making them laugh and helping them enjoy themselves.”
Plus, did you know that the event will also have the nation's first
real, live Ghost Train? There are only a limited number of tickets
to board this train. For a much sought after seat on this exclusive
Ghost Train, tickets can be obtained at:-

from Moorfields and, if it doesn’t vanish, it will arrive in
Southport at around 12.30pm.
