If you weren't excited for Halloween before, now’s the time to get on board, because Spooktober Festival is coming back this October, and taking place at Melbourne’s iconic Luna Park.
All of the usual attractions will be on offer as a part of your unlimited rides ticket, but there will also be a bunch of immersive experiences to get involved in over the week-long scare-fest.
There are family-friendly activities on offer, like the Haunted Fairytales visual experience, or if you’re game you can have a go at the Extreme Phobia Haunted House, which is a little less family-friendly, and not recommended for the faint-hearted.
For those who really want to get into the Halloween spirit, you can stop by the SFX make-up parlour, or come in costume and get involved in the best-dressed competition, where a bunch of prizes will be on offer.
If none of that piques your interest, just head to the Haunted Spirits Bar to calm your nerves. There will be stiff drinks and gruesome cocktails on offer, as well as a live band on Friday and Saturday nights.
Unlimited ride tickets start at $45.50, with a heap of other combo packages available. Grab yourself a ticket for a spine-chilling experience.
