Fancy a fright?

We know the idea of reliving 2020 is scary enough, but we’ve decided to take you back to ScareCity! The sell-out phenomenon brought to you by Park N Party will be returning as SecretCity: Fright Night for a limited number of showings.

Truly terrifying creatures will be lurking in the shadows, waiting to give you the fright of your life! With covid restrictions eased, feel free to explore the park- but beware, something horrific is watching you…
