Sat 1 - Mon 31 Oct Spooky Spectacular
Sat 5 - Sun 6 Nov Fireworks Festival


The annual, month-long festival starts on 1st October and includes a brand new, spine-tingling adventure named ‘Dino Quest’. Daring explorers will have to make their way around Land of the Living Dinosaurs, searching for the missing dinosaur.
However, they must find it before the Mad Scientist, who is also on the hunt to capture the dinosaur for one of their dastardly experiments! The only help the brave explorers will receive is clues from the interesting characters they meet on their way and they will only have torchlight to guide them!

Also new for 2016 is ‘Chaos at Crocular Castle,' an immersive puppet show where families can meet an array of memorable creepy critters and help to save the ‘beautiful’ princess.

Park Events Officer, Laura Henson said, “Our Spooky Spectacular event opens to visitors from 1st October 2016 and runs all the way through to Halloween. Moving into its seventh year we have new and exciting attractions to offer everyone. From late night rides, to themed shows and spooky trails, we have it all!

She continued, “New for 2016 is our hair-raising Dino Quest and our family friendly puppet show where guests will encounter characters such as Count Crocular, Minion Monster and Princess Scary-Fairy. The Park will also be themed with 1,700 pumpkins and over 100 scarecrows, all of which will be eerily illuminated after dark.”

As well as the new attractions there will be competitions, themed live shows and animal encounters, including ‘Dr Franken-Sea-Lion Strikes Again,’ and ‘Creepy Critters Encounter’. If this isn’t enough, children can try their hand at making their very own pumpkin mask in a Spooky Craft Club. There will also be a children’s activity booklet, filled with games, puzzles and a scarecrow trail — they can even earn a special prize at the end!

Hours will be extended until 9:00pm on weekends, October half-term holiday and Halloween and as the daylight fades, the creepiest of spooks will start to appear! Guests are also encouraged to dress up to take part in the Halloween fun.
