As Summer is nearing its end, Autumn is gradually creeping its way in and you know it only means one thing. Halloween! To get us in the spooky mood is a brand new immersive event Spooktacular arriving in Glasgow from October 6 to October 29 and the organisers have unveiled a frightful line-up of rides.
Spooktacular will take place in the Green car park at Silverburn, Pollok in the lead-up to Halloween and will feature the likes of an epic rollercoaster, thrill rides for thrill seekers, a festival wheel with the best view of Glasgow and ‘little pumpkin’ rides. There will be over 15 rides for you to choose from, all of which are included with a wristband.
Guests can expect thrills, spills and chills with attractions including a terrifyingly towering roller coaster and much more.
Rides for thrill seekers include the Tagada, which is a “cursed” spinning bowl where thrill-seekers grip bars instead of restraints, it is where fear meets fun. Visitors can also whirl through the brisk Halloween night air on the Speed Buzz.
The Moonlit Ferris Wheel, where ghouls await at the pinnacle will take guests to eerie heights. And as darkness falls across the land, the Spooktacular Ghost Train is sure to frighten you. Those who fancy less of a fright can enjoy the spooky dodgems, carousels, waltzers and teacups.
Spooktacular tickets get you unlimited access to all rides for the duration of your four-hour session alongside being able to indulge in the food and drink village, photo opportunities, games and attractions.
This year, music lovers can dance away at the new Spooky Silent Disco, a Halloween experience that will make your heart race and your feet move. Halloween-themed tunes will be playing through the headphones, getting everyone into the Halloween spirit, from eerie classics to modern haunting hits. What is more, the silent disco will be free for everyone who attends, even the non-riders.
