You have to see it to believe it at the Winter Freak Fair this July
Wednesday, June 17, 2015
There’s no excuse for enduring a boring school holiday this winter, because Emperors Palace will host the wonderfully bizarre Winter Freak Fair from 10 to 19 July in the D’oreale Grande events area. This unique event will intrigue young and old with a combination of thrills, chills and a healthy dose of the macabre.
This unusual family day out kicks-off with a gut-wrenching tour through a tunnel of darkness where unsuspecting visitors will meet caged freaks created by Dr. Abberation. These freaks include Fifi the headless lady, Hans the midget prince, Miss Lucy Moore the fat Lady, Fortuna and her crystal ball and many more freaks of eccentricities of humanity. At the end of the tunnel visitors will enter the Theatre of Horror where the doctor will create a real live freak. With a collection of grotesque illusions, Dr. Abberation will perform eye-popping illusions that are designed to make hearts race and palms sweat.
As if the show itself doesn’t create enough of an adrenalin surge, visitors can then head outside to test their mettle on a selection of bloodcurdling funfair rides. High speeds, sharp turns and dizzying heights challenge even the toughest of stomachs. After the daredevils have conquered the rides, delicious carnival-style street food will be on offer.
Gates will open at 15h00 from Monday to Friday, with shows at 17h00, 18h00 and 19h00. On Saturday the gates will open at 13h00, with shows at 14h00, 16h00 and 18h00. And on Sunday the gates will open at 11h00 with shows at 14h00, 15h00 and 16h00. Entrance to the fair is free, but tickets to the shows are priced at R45 per person. Tickets for the show may be booked through the Emperors Palace Box Office on 011 928 1297/1213 or on www.emperorspalace.com or www.computicket.com.
