Frightwater Valley

Lightwater Valley Theme Park is launching a hunt for ghosts and ghouls to join in its infamous Halloween Scare Fest.

The North Yorkshire park will be transformed into 'Frightwater Valley' as part of its annual spooky Halloween celebrations (October 26th-29th)

Bosses are looking to enlist the help of actors to provide real-life thrills and chills in the Scare Maze and around the theme park during the four day spooktacular.

They are holding auditions for 'ghosts, ghouls, zombies and witches' on Saturday October 7th and Sunday, October 8th.

"We are on the lookout for people who are enthusiastic, outgoing and above all absolutely terrifying!" said Mark Bainbridge, Lightwater Valley's General Manager.

"Each year the Frightwater event just keeps getting more and more popular and we need to enlist extra staff to ensure everyone gets more than their fair share of scares.

"In addition to being able to inspire fear in our visitors, candidates will also need to be able to handle being outside at night at the end of October. It's definitely not a role for the faint-hearted and anyone who is afraid of the dark need not apply," he added.

Anyone interested in being involved should email their name, address, telephone number and why they think they're the best candidate to join the Frightwater Scare Team to [email protected] by October 1st.

Auditions will then be held over the weekend of October 7th-8th.

With over 40 rides and attractions for thrill seekers of all ages, Lightwater Valley Theme Park is one of the UK's most popular theme parks. Among its signature rides is the 1.5 mile long Ultimate rollercoaster - the longest coaster ride in Europe - and the Eagle's Claw aerial ride.

* Frightwater Valley is taking place from Thursday, October 26th - Sunday, October 29th at Lightwater Valley, North Stainley, Ripon, North Yorkshire HG4 3HT. For details visit or call 01765 635321.
