This year’s event, titled ‘Hell on the Harbour’, takes place over five nights at the iconic Luna Park in Sydney. Each day, as twilight falls, the gateway to hell opens, releasing lost souls and demons of the underworld, as well as a whole host of other freaky and scary beasties. This year there are three mazes to explore, each of which has its own terrifying story.

Ward 13 takes you through an old derelict hospital ruled by crazed Nurse Brenda. In another maze, encounter a gang of dangerous Aussie outlaws in the 1800s who are ready to kill to avoid capture. Enter the Japanese museum of Yōkai where supernatural forces are waiting for you.

Other activities at Luna Park include a satanic possession ritual, a mystery manor to explore, and a Luna Park’s mirror maze is taken over by an evil cult and is thought to be holding seances. The movie screening is the truly brilliant Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away. If you have never seen this movie before, you are in for an absolute treat. You must have a Halloscream ticket to purchase a ticket to see this film and seats are limited.

Halloscream takes place from October 25th to November 2nd.
