Scream park sells more than half of tickets four months before opening
Horrorland will operate for 15 days in October and November, but promoters consider making it permanent
Horrorland, the first scream park in the south of Europe, has already sold more than half of the available tickets on sale. The horror-themed theme park was initially planned to be in operation for fifteen days in October and November in the town of Cercs, northern Catalonia, next to an abandoned power station.
With just over four months to go before it opens its doors, the companies behind it are already considering lengthening Horrorland’s opening period. If they follow through with this plan, Horror Box and Insomnia might set up shop for an extended period, or even turn it into a permanent attraction at the industrial estate where construction is currently underway.
As it stands, Horrorland will convert seven warehouses into a terror-filled wonderland beneath the fitting backdrop of an old, out-of-use power station.
“The perfect setting”
“It’s an interactive journey through a themed terror tunnel,” explained David Moreno, the director of Horror Box.
“The marsh, the chimney and the structure of the enclosure make it a perfect setting,” added Climent Vila, director of Berga-based company Insomnia, which is working in conjunction with Horror Box. Among the attractions at the scream park are haunted houses and escape rooms, and much more.
After being announced on social media fifteen days ago, more than half of the 22,500 available tickets have been sold.
Horrorland will run on specific days throughout October and November, which can be consulted on its website. In keeping with the horror theme, the park will open under the cover of darkness from 18:30 to 00:30.
