Customers will enjoy over an hour of spooktacular entertainment with plenty of music and mischief with all children getting a goody bag full of tricks and treats in return for helping the Monster Squad vanquish the ghoulies.

As well as this, Bury Transport Museum will be host to the Carn-Evil for fun, fear and frights.

There will be unlimited theme park rides, a disco and a spooktacular show included in the Carn-Evil ticket price with something for all the family.

ELR chairman Mike Kelly said: “We are frightfully excited for families from far and wide to attend the interactive experience.

“The event gets bigger and better every year - it’s not to be missed, you can’t beat this spooky experience aboard our atmospheric steam trains.

“This year we will have a competition for the best fancy dress, so dive into your fancy dress box, dust off the face painting skills and practise your loudest screams to blend in with all the creeps and critters!”
