Why Fear Island is a great way to scare yourself on Halloween!

Fear Island is a great way to experience all the thrills and chills of Halloween. You can get your spooky fix in one day by visiting the haunted house, wandering through the forest, and ending with a scary movie in front of a roaring fire. It offers you the opportunity to come face-to-face with your fears as you go through a range of attractions. Read on to know why a day trip to Fantasy Island is what you need this Halloween!

A burst of excitement

Did you know that “Fear can feel a lot like excitement because the body is releasing a lot of hormones as we experience adrenaline?”. Clinical psychologist, Laura Mitchell, goes on to say, “We get a bit of a high from that adrenaline rush which is in part the attraction to fear.” Other research has also suggested that the higher levels of dopamine you experience in a scary situation means that you’re more likely to enjoy it. The reason? Dopamine is what helps you feel pleasure!

Range of attractions

When you just need to get away from it all, what better place than Fantasy Island at Halloween? It’s a world full of unbelievable magic and myth that will bring your deepest desires to life. From the spooky adventures in ‘The Haunting 2′ to the murderous secrets that hide in plain sight in ‘Killer Villa’, there’s no place like Fear Island to bring your trip to Skegness to life!


Designed with the younger crowd in mind, come with us on a ghost hunt led by Doctor Highgate, or take part in any of our other offerings like murder mystery dinners and scavenger hunts as part of The Haunting 2. Whether you’re looking to try something new or experience an old favourite, we’ve got it all here inside Gallowgate Castle.


With a Fear Island wristband, you get access to all the usual rides plus one entry to each of the scare events. We’re not like other fairs or events which charge a ticket price and then add on extra charges for rides and games!

Fantasies come true at Fantasy Island. You’ll find no other place in the world that offers such a range of attractions for one price. Book your trip to Fear Island, which runs from October 9th to October 31st, today.
