Join us from 30th September until 29th October 2017 for witches, ghosts and eerie tales in our Spooky Spectacular event!

Full of family fun, spooky shows and a trick or treat trail, it is the perfect way to celebrate October and brighten up the spookiest of seasons.

30TH SEPT - 29TH OCT, 2O17


NEW FOR 2017 – Trick or Treat Trail – Follow a trail of tricky clues around the Park to find the gingerbread house and its owner – the trick or treat witch! On completing the trail, the witch will give you a prize, but beware – will this be a lovely treat or a sneaky trick!?

• Dino Quest – This year will see the return of Dino Quest with a whole new adventure. A professor of Palaeontology has a vision to bring dinosaurs back to life and is looking for brave explorers to send back in time through the Land of the Living Dinosaurs and fulfil the professor’s life’s work. But is everything as it seems? Making their way along the dark, winding paths, explorers will interact with several curious characters to help unravel the mystery. (Running from 6pm-9pm on weekends and during half term).

• ‘Terrifying Tales of Talent’ – Watch our immersive puppet show and see who becomes ‘King’ after the talent contest!
