    Gory torture chambers and ghoulish ghostly images cleverly done

Theme Park
    & Zoo
Rides are being updated annually, there is always something new
    and more daring. It is expensive to get in but it is all free once you
    are inside. Food is also quite expensive so a packed lunch would be
    advisable. I do not know how good the zoo is but my son returns to
    the theme park regularly.

    have been to Filey and Bridlington and recommend a visit to both.
