Halloween Experience: Dystopia Station

A perfectly preserved attraction that will steam you into dystopia....

Talk of disappearance and institutionalisation surround Dystopia Station, which is now governed by the Topia Federation. Make up your own mind when you visit this October….. you’ll never want to leave!
