Ghost Tours : Wednesday 22 March & Wednesday 17 May 2017
Zoo was the second location for Supernatural Events'
original Ghost Tours
and one of the most popular.
The zoo, which opened on 6 July 1972, has quite a history of paranormal activities occurring; and that is not surprising when you look at the background of the buildings and the land it was built on!
It was constructed on the former site of the original Blackpool
Municipal Aerodrome, which was built in 1929 and opened in 1931.
The aerodrome became the Stanley Park Aerodrome In 1939 and when
World War II broke out, on 3 September of that year, the RAF
requisitioned the aerodrome. Originally there was an air traffic
control building and one hangar, however an additional four
hangars were built where Wellington bombers were assembled and
flown from during the war years. When the war finished the
aerodrome closed and was never used for flying again.
Many of the original aerodrome buildings and hangers are still standing; the A-Zoo nursery and keepers flats are housed in the old air traffic control building with the hangars being used to house the elephants, for food storage, quarantine and maintenance of the zoo site itself.
Join us at Blackpool Zoo when after a talk on the history and hauntings that take place there (over a brew and a biscuit) we will visit some of the attractions' most haunted areas and carry out some experiments. Careful though as we walk through the grounds; you could bump into the hooded man or see the man in the RAF uniform or something else!!
