Watch our Scouse of Horrors Kids CAM – Open now at St. John’s Market
Watch below as we take you to the Scouse of Horrors, Liverpool’s brand new spectacular family attraction that is open now until 31st October.
City Attractions, the company that saved Liverpool’s Famous 139-year-old Christmas Grotto from closure last year, is now overhauling Halloween in the city with a family friendly, ‘Scouse of Horrors’.
The ‘fright-free’ Halloween 20-30 minute experience in St John’s Market has been created to offer young children (ages 3-11) a chance to join in some Halloween fun without the risk of being scared out of their skin!
Owner of Liverpool-based City Attractions, Guy Fennell, commented: “St John’s Shopping Centre attracts thousands of young families every week and we wanted to cater for preschoolers and infants who want to enjoy Halloween this season.
“This is NOT a scare attraction. Having spoken to many local parents, Halloween can be a real nightmare for young children, so Scouse of Horrors offers a safe and fun environment for them to enjoy this time of year.”
St John who has lost his pumpkins welcomes young visitors to the experience. He has been living at his manor peacefully for centuries until some naughty pixies came along and stole all his pumpkins! He needs the help of Merseyside’s Mini Monsters to hunt them down.
Children tiptoe through ‘Trick or Treat Street’ trying to find the lost pumpkins and meet the pair of cheeky pixies before having a chance to ‘Hook a Frog’ and ‘Ghost Bust’ before receiving their own certificate after completing the pumpkin Halloween hunt. Spooky slushies, photos from the experience and tasty treats are available in the Halloween-themed store, where families can stock up on all their devilish delights.
The interior design of the Scouse of Horrors has been created in conjunction with a team of children’s entertainment specialists who have worked with leading family brands, such as Disney and Merlin Entertainments. The pixie puppets that appear throughout the experience were commissioned exclusively for the Scouse of Horrors and children visiting this week will be invited to name them.
Neil Ashcroft, Centre Manager, St Johns Shopping Centre, Liverpool: “Families want to have a good time and experience something new when they come to St Johns, and so throughout the year we have a huge range of events and activities going on in the centre.
“This Halloween season will be no exception with this great family attraction!”
