This is the 4th year that Pleasureland has been transformed into "The Happy Halloween Capital of the UK."  Throughout the ½ term holidays, the park will be decorated with hundreds of pumpkins, bats and spiders to ramp up the spooky fun.

Managing Director of Southport Pleasureland, Norman Wallis, said:- "After my stay in Hospital I'm extremely grateful to be here; and well enough to put on this Halloween event. It's is all down to the amazing care I received from doctors and Nurses.
