STAFF at South­port Plea­sure­land are busy trans­form­ing the theme park into a Hal­lowe’en spec­tac­u­lar.

Doors will open its doors dur­ing half-term next week.

Once again, thou­sands of pump­kins will adorn the park, with witches, skele­tons and a host of scary crea­tures at the Boo For You Hal­lowe’en Spec­tac­u­lar.

Staff have been work­ing around the clock andowner Nor­man Wal­lis promisies it will be the per­fect place for a fam­ily visit at Hal­lowe’en.

The park is also of­fer­ing dis­counted ride to­kens on­line, with the park open on Satur­day and Sun­day and then again the fol­low­ing Thurs­day to Sun­day.

Mr Wal­lis has con­tin­u­ally re­de­vel­oped the park since tak­ing it over a decade ago. He plans to cre­ate more in­door at­trac­tions to at­tract vis­i­tors all year round.

And a Day of the Dead Fes­ti­val next month – with fire­work dis­plays and live mu­sic – is ex­pected to bring thou­sands of peo­ple to the theme park over two days.

Mr Wal­lis be­lieves Hal­lowe’en gives South­port busi­nesses the chance to keep tourists com­ing to town after the sum­mer sea­son has fin­ished – and of­fers lots of en­ter­tain­ment for res­i­dents.

He said: “What I’m try­ing to do to help South­port is to ex­tend the sea­son. A big prob­lem for South­port is the sea­son is rel­a­tively short.

“We’ve got a lot of op­po­si­tion in the North West so we’ve all got to pull to­gether and make sure we got our piece.

“But this is def­i­nitely go­ing to be the best. This is the place to be for Hal­lowe’en.”
