Forget what you think you know about this funfair attraction, once darkness falls over the bay, the pier descends into madness and mayhem.
The fairground has been overrun by all manner of terrifying creatures and characters, all of whom are just dying to get their hands on any unsuspecting victims who cross their path in search of a good time.

Get ready to scream, you’re in the Unfairground now...

Cirque du Fear

This used to be The Greatest Show on Earth...

Prepare to enter a world of magic and illusion where nothing is quite what it seems. This once-great illusionist has a way of making people disappear, but will you be able to find your way back to reality?


The Freak Show has been cancelled. Abandoned by their once-great showman, and left alone in the dark, the freaks have turned wild and dangerous.

After a lifetime of being stared at, they’re out for revenge now: if you look at them, they’ll take your eyes.

The only way through their lair is not to see anything at all…


A night at the circus has taken a terrifying turn as killer clowns roam the Big Top.

You won’t be laughing when they come for you…

Climb aboard the Ghost Train and be transported to a world of darkness where things really do go bump in the night.

All manner of ghouls, zombies and creatures of the night are lurking in the black around every corner – will everyone who boards get off again at the other end?
