An award-winning Halloween event is returning to Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach this half term.
Fairground Frights will be open next week offering visitors "more chills and thrills" than last year's successfully spooky event.
Due to high demand the event will run for five consecutive nights this year from Wednesday, October 27 to Sunday, October 31.
The Pleasure Beach has teamed up with UK scare event director Ben Woodward who will help bring scary spirits and petrifying poltergeists to life among the rides and attractions.
James Jones, Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach joint director, said: "Last year, the screams and laughter summed up how much people loved the chance to be part of Fairground Frights.
"We are keeping the theme but extending it with some new scares and attractions as well as the popular scary set-pieces of last year."
The Workshop attraction will feature sinister tales from Great Yarmouth's past, bringing to life criminal investigations and murders which have happened in the town over the last 100 years.

The debut Fairground Frights was a great success last year beating the likes of Alton Towers and Chessington World of Adventure at the ScareCon Awards.
Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach joint director Aaron Jones added: "When I lived in America, Halloween was a time for family and friends to get together and make memories.
"All of us here at Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach wanted to bring that experience to this side of the Atlantic."
