Calling all thrill-seekers! Are YOU brave enough to ride this ghost train?

New ride hits Brixton in London.

If you’re an adrenaline junkie looking for your next fix, then we’ve got just the ride for you.

While it’s not quite the same as dangling upside down at Alton Towers, it is a magical mystery funfair ride that you can embark on all while remaining a respectable 2m apart.

A new ghost train journey has launched, inviting participants to join the “absurd and melancholic” adventure at project space Block 336 in Brixton, London.

The work of Andy Holden – a British artist known for his sculpture, large installations, animation and multi-screen videos – is described as a “socially distanced journey through a desolate post-cartoon landscape”.


But how exactly does it work?

The solo exhibition was initially built in the weeks leading up to the COVID-19 outbreak, although sadly failed to open to the public due to lockdown.

However, it has now been revamped to launch as a behind-the-scenes tour experience.

Visitors will travel through the exhibition on individual motorised sculptural carts, following a predetermined track.

Unlike a theme park ride that lasts mere moments, this immersive journey will take guests 40 minutes to complete.

Their journey will take them through the desert, the woods, stopping in the mansion’s haunted library, and then finally passing through an uninhabited city.

Each section includes a short, animated film, with the entire installation interrupted by a large 3D-film that surprises guests when the space is plunged into darkness.

The exhibition, which runs until October 24, asks people to book ahead for allocated slots that depart at various times between 11am and 4.30pm from Thursday to Saturday.
