Theme park on lookout for ghouls and ghosts for North Yorks Frightwater event

Ghouls, ghosts and witches are being sought by a theme park in North Yorkshire for this year’s Frightwater Valley scare fest.

Lightwater Valley, near Ripon, is on the lookout for actors to frighten visitors in its scare maze and around the theme park during the four day spooktacular.

Frightwater Valley, which was recently nominated for a White Rose tourism award, runs from 27 October to 30 October and Mark Bainbridge, general manager, Lightwater Valley theme park said:

“Frightwater has got bigger and more popular every year and this Halloween, we’re hoping our staff can make it even scarier.

“So we’re looking for people who are enthusiastic, outgoing and, above all, absolutely terrifying!

“It’s an outdoor event and the weather may be cold and sometimes wet, so it’s not a role for the faint-hearted.

“Remember, the darker the night, the scarier the fright.”

Isobel Ineson, a local university student who worked at last year’s event, said:

“It’s so much fun getting paid to scare people! Full training is provided and we also get four free tickets to the theme park.

“The event has really become a firm favourite for locals and a big part of the theme park’s calendar.”

Anyone interested in being involved should email their name, address, telephone number and why they think they’re the best candidate to join the Frightwater Scare Team to by 1 October.

Auditions will be held on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 October 2016.
