Mystery of Blackpool's missing pilot

Back by popular demand, Blackpool Zoo is inviting intrepid investigators to its super spookfest this October.

Once again, the Fylde coast attraction will transform into the 1940s aerodrome that it once was, and visitors will be challenged to unravel the mystery of the missing pilot.

The story goes that a newly built aircraft took off from Stanley Park Aerodrome on Thursday 31st October 1940 on its inaugural journey to Squires Gate Airport before tracking of the plane was lost....with the pilot and aircraft never seen or spoken about since.....

Wannabe super sleuths will arrive to find 1940s newspaper cuttings, antiquated bunting, signage from a bygone era and much more, with clues on hand to help solve the ghostly myth.

Blackpool Zoo's must-see Dinosaur Safari will become an immersive experience with eerie sounds and mysterious well as the pilot's missing plane nestled in the centre of the lake.

The pilot's log book will be on hand for visitors to piece together clues which will eventually reveal his location.
Blackpool Zoo is open from 10.00am until 4.45pm every day
