Scary happenings at theme park


The annual Halloween Masked Ball is set to be something of a rollercoaster ride this year.


The event, now in its eighth year, will take place at Flambards theme park, near Helston, on Saturday, November 1.

Masked Ball director, Kelvin Batt, said: “We explored 24 sites across Cornwall assessing each one for access, its ability to withstand inclement weather, suitability as a music venue and general quirkiness.

“The Halloween Masked Ball will take over the whole of the theme park, including rides, taking those who dare on a mystical journey through 11 twisted venues right through the night.”

This year’s Halloween Masked Ball – based on The Day of the Dead, the famous Mexican festival where the deceased are celebrated by parties and dancing – will feature more fringe entertainment including walkabout theatre and improvised performance.

Batt added: “With each event we strive to raise the bar with creative production, eclectic décor and attention to detail, all of which are as important as the stellar line-up in creating the perfect conditions to let loose.”
