The Circus of Screams covers nearly 300sq.m, and the live interactive experience features strobe lighting, 3D effects, scare chambers and live performers.

Luna Park’s executive director, Mary Stuart, said: "We are very pleased to present Circus of Screams to Melbourne on the 96th birthday of Luna Park.

"When Luna Park first opened on December 13, 1912, newsreel footage captured images of circus performers, trapeze artists and amazing feats being performed for the opening celebrations of the Park before a Melbourne audience of more than 20,000 people."
