THIS IS NO ORDINARY GHOST TRAIN... YOUR DESTINATION: NOWHERETake a frightening fairground ride through a maze of darkened tunnels inhabited by incredible live 'ghosts', creepy animatronics, spectacular magic illusions and moving stage sets!Following several earlier homes around the world, Carnesky's Ghost Train is now permanently located in it's true spiritual home in the heartland of the British seaside - Blackpool, situated opposite Sandcastle Waterpark on South Promenade.Created by award winning theatre producer Marisa Carnesky, the Ghost Train is part ride, part visual theatre and part scare attraction which cleverly combines contemporary attraction technology with age old theatrical illusions.During the 10 minute experience guests hurtle around deserted tunnels driven by a mourning mother, desperately seeking her long lost daughters. But all is not what it seems, as a story of disappeared daughters and phantom trains is delivered in four dimensions.Suitable for audiences of all ages, Carnesky's Ghost Train is a frightfully fun experience that will leave you screaming for more!

We saw the sign for this place and half if that was missing but it gave a good theme of dereliction which built the tension. However behind the sign where you would expect the ride was just some patchy grass and a bit of rubble...More

You cannot review something that is not there. So sad to report you can no longer visit it, just a yawning gap where it used to be. It was always so well performed and quite unique so come on Carneskys, tell us what happened. Another...More
