Newsham Scream Park set to be “UK’s scariest attraction” this Halloween

Newsham Park abandoned hospital in Liverpool will be the home of a new Halloween scare attraction this October.

The Victorian Grade II listed building was the site of a Seamen’s orphanage, hospital, asylum and nursing home.

Newsham Park abandoned hospital is a mecca for ghost hunters and spectral thrill seekers, with many claiming to have seen spirits, heard whispers or felt the touch of something cold on their spine. It is regularly cited as one of the UK’s most haunted buildings, stalked by those who used to govern it or be its unfortunate guests. Many believe its history has left an indelible presence lurking in the corners, emerging only at night. 

And this Halloween, something truly terrifying will stalk the cursed corridors and decayed dormitories – Newsham Scream Park.

Asylum Entertainment Limited have teamed up with one of Europe’s biggest scare attraction companies to take over the derelict building and create a horrifying Halloween vision which will have no comparison. Three scare attractions will terrify guests – Insanitorium and The Orphanage aged 14+ and the strictly aged 18+ HELLuminati. Each experience will wind through the dark bowels of the building, filled with deepening dread and moments of sheer blood-curdling panic, as guests follow each nightmarish path through Newsham Scream Park. 

Insanitorium and The Orphanage are included in the base ticket price and HELLuminati is extra with dates running from Friday 13th October to Sunday 5th November. The courtyard at Newsham Scream Park will include live music and DJs, licensed bars, food vendors and an array of tarot card readers, mystics, spirit board guides and other curious characters.

In 2016 the Guide Liverpool’s Jay Hynd and Mark Bryon joined ghost hunters in the building and you can watch how events unfolded below.

Insanitorium – The Doctor will see you now…

Check in for your appointment at The Goodwell Institute, where the masterminds of unethical medical science are attempting to discover the answer to the eternal question: what happens to the soul after death?

But be warned, The Invasia Procedure is not going to plan, and now delirium rules the wards inside the Insanitorium – you would be MAD to miss it…

The Orphanage – There will be no mercy…

Since 1913 The Blessed Sisters of Mercy have housed orphaned and unwanted waifs and strays at The Orphanage, providing an education and a home, dictated by a stern religious philosophy.

But home is not always where the heart is, and at the rotten core of the sisterhood dwells an ancient evil first invoked by Sister Mary Mercy, and which must be appeased in the most diabolic way…

HELLuminati – Membership is open

Hidden within the bowels of the Asylum lies the headquarters of an ancient secret society known as the Helluminati; a worldwide network of wealthy individuals with omnipotent global control.

The members amuse themselves by doctoring what they call ‘the meat’; obtained by illegal auctions in the deepest parts of the dark web.

Membership is now open. But are you suitable to join the sick and twisted minds of the members, and their enigmatic leader – Omega, inside HELLuminati, or are you simply ‘meat’?

Tickets go on sale on Friday 7th July 10am for Newsham Scream Park.
