Dreamland Margate Presents Half Term Halloween Family Activities including Ghost Train



• Dreamland Margate announces a Ghost Train will become the latest edition to its ride collection, just in time for Halloween.
• Suitable for little monsters and their families during the half term week, Dreamland will be host to a number of events including, Pumpkin Carving, Street Theatre, Strange Sisters, Monstrous Menagerie and more.
• More information is available at http://bit.ly/DreamlandHalfTerm

This Halloween, Dreamland Margate the UK’s original pleasure park introduces its Ghost Train as part of the ride line up with a host of special events for little monsters! The ride, as well as the existing favourites, including the recently announced opening of the Scenic Railway, will be operational for the duration of Screamland. The event offers a less heart racing, family friendly visitor experience during the daytime, focusing on fun, but spooky activities in Half Term Halloween.
The Ghost Train will send shivers down your spine as you journey through the ghoulish, creepy track giving you the fright of your life! Once you embark, there’s no turning back!

Eddie Kemsley, CEO of Dreamland says:
“We are delighted to see the arrival of our Ghost Train just in time for the region’s largest scare festival, Screamland and Half Term Halloween. It wouldn’t be the same without a ghost train at this time of year and alongside this, there are lots of activities for young children and their families during the day. With a whole host of tricks and treats lined up, there is something for everyone in Margate, this Halloween.”

HALF TERM FUN IN THE AMUSEMENT PARK
As well as unlimited use of the rides, a number of daytime sideshows will be part of all the fun of the scare, including:

ABRAMACABRE
Get lost in a magical mirror maze where the ghost of The Amazing Mystero, a celebrated Edwardian Magician, is prowling the passageways in search of his beastly bunny. But be warned… after escaping from Mystero’s top hat, the creature has transformed, as if by magic, into a monstrous Halloween horror!

ICE SCREAM MAN
An amusement park by the sea at Halloween wouldn’t be complete without an Ice Scream Man, Margate’s darkest and grungiest ice scream vendor.

MONSTROUS MENAGERIE
Taking inspiration from Dreamland’s menagerie cages, “Monstrous Menagerie”, a zany Victorian menagerist character will entertain and repel children with his collection of spiders, lizards and bugs.

THE LAUGHING SAILOR
Guests pass by a traditional seaside ‘Laughing Sailor’ exhibit, and place 10p in the slot to see him move… with a terrifying and unexpected twist!

THE STRANGE SISTERS
Set in a Romany Gypsy encampment, guests who cross their palms with silver can obtain real psychic crystal ball readings from one of the themed Strange Sisters.

PUMPKIN CARVING
Dreamland will be holding special pumpkin carving sessions, with its crew on hand to help create the scariest pumpkins possible! Guests can then take them home to proudly show (or scare) off the neighbours!
