It draws in thousands of visitors with its exciting rides.
But from tomorrow, Pleasurewood Hills will have a new aim – to get people shouting and screaming at a host of spooky and spine-tingling attractions.
To celebrate Halloween, the park is re-branding itself Pleasurewood Chills Scream Park and is challenging people to show they are brave enough to sample its scariest rides.
The attractions will include Hobs Pit: X-Scream, Satan’s Circus Maze, Tales of the Haunted Coast and the Horror Express.
Other attractions on offer until next weekend include the Hopton Ghosthunters, Trick or Treat, family pumpkin carving and a daily fancy dress competition.
And visitors to Pleasurewood CHILLS Scream Park can also still enjoy the site’s other popular rides and attractions such as Wipeout, the Jolly Roger, Timber Fall, Snake in the Grass, illusionist shows and sea lion and parrot shows.
The Halloween season will culminate with a firework finale on Sunday, November 3, after which the park will close until the spring.
As an added bonus during the Halloween season, the park will remain open until 6pm. For the final hour, rides will be closed but other attractions will remain open for what the park is calling Witching Hour.
Alexis Camelin, general manager of Pleasurewood Hills, said he was hopeful the park’s seasonal make-over would draw in visitors over the autumn half-term
“We believe we have become the premier attraction to visit at Halloween this year,” he said. “We have decided to give our visitors even more to shout and scream about in 2013 – and this includes dropping standard entry to just £13.50 over the period.
“Feedback this season has been very positive, telling us that the recent investment into the park has paid off and we are continuing that trend with this all-new Halloween Pleasurewood Chills event.”
The £13.50 standard entry ticket covers all age groups, with children under 1m free. It entitles people to enjoy all rides and attractions, except Hobs Pit: X-Scream, Satan’s Circus Maze and Horror Express which require an upgraded terror ticket costing £5. This is not recommended for under 12s.
