Our first Scare Academy is a sell out success!

Friday 29th October 2021

Witches and wizards of all ages are being invited to learn the ropes at Dalton Park’s Scare Academy this October half term.

The frightfully free fun event is a first for the centre with tickets selling out within a week of release. The immersive experience will take daredevils on a journey of spooky silent discos and scary selfie spots with lots of tricks and treats thrown in along the way.

Younger thrill seekers will also have the chance to learn the great art of wizardry courtesy of Professor Prunella Pumpkins.

The live, immersive Halloween experience will run from 11am until 4pm, beginning on Wednesday 27th October, right up until the scariest day of the year on Sunday 31st October.

Jerry Hatch, Centre Manager at Dalton Park, said: “It’s the first time we’re offering this kind of immersive experience to our visitors so I cannot believe tickets have already sold out.

“We’ve arranged 50 performances and walk-in bookings are available at a first-come-first served basis, so everyone should still be able to get in on the action.

“Initial feedback from our little guests has been incredible and we can’t wait to welcome even more visitors this weekend and share all the tricks and treats we have up our sleeve!

“It’s also a great use for the vacant unit which provides an ideal space for hosting events like this. We’re aiming to hold similar experiential events in 2022, and this will ensure that we remain a firm choice for those looking to enjoy a fantastic day out!”

Dalton Park’s Scare Academy is situated in Unit 113, next door to Cineworld. Tickets have sold out for the event, but daily walk-in slots are available on a first come, first serve basis.

The experience is suitable for children aged between 4-10 years who must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Visitors should allow 30 minutes to complete the Scare Academy experience.
