A POPULAR Halloween themed fairground returning to a shopping centre this October. 

Spooktacular will bring fear, fun and frolics to Silverburn from Friday October 7 to October 31.

The event will take place at the shopping centre's green car park.

Attractions will include a wide range of rides, spooky photo opportunities and food options.

The Ghost Train is sure to give visitors a fright, as they make their way through things that go bump in the night. 

The iconic Waltzers will leave your head spinning and wanting to go again and again as you spin out over the undulating floor.

You can get yourself in a spooky double spin with Twist - a unique twisting motion circling round and round.

The Freakout Ride is a stomach churning ride that spins riders around in their seats while they soar through the air on a large pendulum.

The Matterhorn is a high-octane and exciting fairground attraction that is sure to get the adrenaline flowing, the blood pumping and the heart racing.

The Jumping Frogs is non-stop thrills from start to finish with different bounce sequences throughout guaranteeing no two rides are the same.

For a less scary experience the Frozen Apple Coaster will give little ones their first taste of a roller coaster but as the hungry caterpillar races around the undulating track, or bounce around with the Kangaroos, with riders feeling like they are sitting in the kangaroo's pouch.

The Teacups, Circus Train, Bungee trampolines, Race-o-Rama, Mini Chairs and Funhouse are also rides to look forward to at Spooktacular.
