Time Out says
Sydney’s favourite theme park will be taken over by an 'Infinite Fear' theme, Mr Bowler and some menacing scare mazes this Halloween
Luna Park’s wild rides offer Sydneysiders and adrenaline junkie visitors thrills and chills on the regular, but for Halloween they ramp it up a gear. Halloscream will transform the fun park for an eighth year into a ghoulish scare-fair with additional hair-raising adventures, roving park demons and horror-themed snacks over six spooky nights.
With a nod to classic horror films Luna Park is calling this iteration 'Halloscream 8: Infinite Fear' and they’ve organised some horrific places for you to get lost in. Three scare mazes will be set up in the park with different bone-chilling themes. Enter the Outback Butcher maze and attempt to outrun an evil landlord looking for payment (with your life), shriek through an abandoned supermarket that's been taken over by zombies in the DecayMart, and contemplate abolishing the prison system as you run from rioting detainees in Block 13. Coney Island will also be given a terrifying facelift and transformed into Lonely Doll Island littered with doll parts and imbued with a horrifying tale of a grief-stricken father trying to assemble a replacement for his lost family.
All the scares begin after dark, so show up at moonrise in your Halloween best and prepare yourself for the nightly 'Scaremony'. This year's lead spook Mr Bowler will be roaming around trying to coerce you into his hellish puppet shows along with several unseemly characters hellbent on scaring the bejeezus out of you. Dressing up is encouraged but within reason, no full-face coverings will be permitted into the nightmarish event.
Luna Park is extending the Halloween scares over six nights, so there’s plenty of time to explore all the new attractions. Book your tickets for one of the Halloscream evenings with tickets starting at $54.95 entitling you to unlimited rides and unknowable terror. And of course, Luna Park has taken every possible precaution to ensure the event is Covid-safe, be sure to read their health and safety regulations before you book.
