Screamland is a live, immersive and theatrical experience like no other. Engage and interact with live professional actors as you explore our twisted themed mazes and sideshows.
Each of our scare attractions offers a completely different experience. You will enter the scare attractions with a very small group of other ticket holders but the experience is individual to each of you.
There will be sights, sounds and smells like no other experience so be prepared to be scared!
The Screamland event runs for selected nights between 18th October and 1st November 2019. The dates are 18th, 19th, 25th, 26th, 31st October and 1st November. Screamland opens each night at 6pm and closes at 11pm. There will be no entry granted to the event after 9pm. There will be no readmission once you leave the event. Please note that you are not guaranteed to get through all of the mazes; we advise you to get to Screamland as early as possible to give you the best chance of experiencing the full event.
Your Screamland ticket gives you access to 5 scare mazes, unlimited ride access (please note that some rides are weather-dependent, and therefore subject to availability), plus all of the street entertainment around the park. Limited fast track tickets are available, which give you fast track access to all of the mazes via the fast track queue – book early to avoid disappointment.
‘Rides Only’ tickets are also available which include unlimited rides plus street entertainment. Please note that some rides are weather-dependent, and therefore subject to availability.
The ticket price remains the same regardless of age. Screamland is a fully ticketed evening event, with a suggested age of 12 and over.
For under 12s, we recommend purchasing a Rides Only ticket. This is a Screamland ticket without the scare mazes included. These tickets get you into the park to soak up the Halloween atmosphere, so you can enjoy the street entertainment and unlimited ride access. You are guaranteed to have a shockingly good time – and please note that there might be some mini frights around the park from entertainers! Please note that some rides are weather-dependent, and therefore subject to availability.
All children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult aged 18 or over holding their own valid ticket at all times. There must be 1 adult to every 7 children under 16.

The Screamland scare attractions are very intricate, as well as scary, with special effects, obstacles, darkness, smoke, strobe lighting, live actors and more, so please take this into account when visiting us.
Three of our scare mazes are wheelchair accessible. If you have specific access needs, please make our Guest Experience team aware at the time of your visit, and they will be able to advise you on
maze and ride accessibility. Or please contact the Customer Service team on firstname.lastname@example.org should you require any further information.
The majority of the mazes consist of tight and confined spaces which may require crawling, and therefore guests need to be able to undertake this physical activity to enter these mazes, and wear suitable clothing e.g. flat shoes.
Yes. There will be a mixture of flashing lights, strobe, smoke, smells and/or loud noises throughout each of the scare mazes. These mazes are designed to disorientate you. If you have any health conditions that may be affected by any of these effects then we would strongly advise that you purchase a Rides Only ticket, which doesn’t include access to the mazes but does give you access to unlimited rides and street entertainment.
This event is both indoors and outdoors, with queuing and exposure to the elements. Please only attend if you think you are physically fit enough for these conditions. Please wear appropriate clothing for an outdoor event. The scare mazes are covered, but some of the queue lanes may be outside. For 2019, the mazes will be in the Ballroom, Roller Room and in the adjacent Arlington Car Park, alongside entertainment and rides on park.
Yes. The main scare mazes are all undercover, although some of the queue lanes may be exposed to the elements. Make sure you dress accordingly. Rain only affects a small number of rides in the park.
Due to the location of the scare mazes, some of the queue lines may be exposed to the elements. We recommend you come prepared to keep warm and dry!
There are some grassy areas in Dreamland but these are surrounded by hardscaped areas so you will not need to worry about getting muddy.
We do not allow any form of alcohol to be brought onto the site. However, alcohol is available to purchase from the licensed bars within Dreamland. We operate a challenge 25 policy. Anyone deemed to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be refused access to Screamland and the scare mazes and will be removed from the event and have their ticket invalidated.
Yes, we have a variety of delicious street food available to cater for everyone, including vegan and gluten free options. And also some spooky Halloween specials!
The clue is in the title! We have designed our scare mazes to scare you in variety of ways. If we don’t scare you, we certainly hope to make to make you jump and scream! These mazes will also make you laugh! You may be touched in some of the attractions and potentially when navigating your way through the maze calls for the actors to guide you through certain parts of the story. This will be briefed in the queue lanes in advance.
Yes. All the scare mazes and attractions involve live scare actors, many of whom are considered to be the best scare actors in the UK! All of our scare actors are highly trained.
