All the Fun of the Fair this February Half-Term

Escape to Fun Island returns just in time for the half-term school holidays after proving a big hit last year.

The old Thwaites brewery site in Blackburn town centre will be turned into a giant fun fair for all ages – with organisers proclaiming the event to be unlike any other theme park.

From some of the country’s most daring white-knuckle rides to family favourites, there will be rides to suit everyone … with an entrance fee of just £2.

Plus, there is a fantastic line-up of daily entertainment ranging from the Big Top Clowns’ Cave to magic shows, balloon modelling … and even dinosaurs. And there’s more … with stilt walkers, fire jugglers and Hulkbuster, plus many more surprises.

And on each Saturday night, Escape to Fun Island will feature its very own MEGA firework display.

Escape to Fun Island runs from February 9-19, with opening hours of 5pm-9pm on the first two nights and then from 12pm to 9pm from 11th to 19th, and can be found in Penny Street, Blackburn, BB1 6HQ.

Entrance tickets can be bought online now along with ride tokens, including special offers for buying in advance. Tokens are just £1 each, with the rides costing from two to five tokens each.
