Spooktober @ Luna Dark
An eight-night festival of horror with haunted houses, roving zombies and plenty of liquid courage at Luna Park.
Spooktober claims to be Melbourne's spookiest Halloween festival, so you know it has considerable things up its sleeves when it comes to giving you a fright. And this year, it's going big — not only extending the scares across eight nights (and four days) between Friday, October 25 and Sunday, November 3, but doing so at Luna Park for the first time.
The new setup will feature roving zombies, two custom haunted house experiences called Extreme Phobia and Haunted Fairytales, and a Haunted Spirits Bar so you can get some liquid courage into you, stat. There'll be Luna Park's rides and carnival games, too, but given a themed twist.
Also on the lineup is a ghastly glamour parlour where you can get made up to look the part, costume competitions, spooky entertainment and a trick or treat trail for the littlies. Yes, some of the festival is family-friendly, but if you're an adult and you're still scared that's okay.
Spooktober @ Luna Dark is open on Friday, October 25 from 6–11pm; Saturday, October 26 from 11am–5pm and 6pm–12am; Sunday, October 27 from 11am–5pm and 6–11pm; Wednesday, October 30 from 6–11pm; Thursday, October 31 from 6pm–12am; Friday, November 1 from 6–11pm; Saturday, November 2 from 11am–5pm and 6pm–12am; and Sunday, November 3 from 11am–5pm and 6–11pm.
