Gates open at 6pm – prepare for the scare!!! Not for the faint hearted…moonlit tractor rides, Halloween games and much more!! There will also be delicious food from Café Cwtch and a licensed bar.

We get asked an awful lot what the recommended age is for attending our evening Halloween event. This is really difficult to answer as every child has their own scare level and we have to advise that it is at the discretion of the parents/carers because what is fun for one child could be terrifying for the next. As a guideline, parts are intended to be scary (after all it is Halloween)! PLEASE BE AWARE there will be some loud noises, strobe lights, scary characters and some gory scenes

Our intention is certainly that everyone who attends has fun & we hope that you do! 

Pre-booked tickets are £7 per person and are available for purchase up to 5pm on Wednesday 30th October, tickets are £8 per person on the 31st October. Tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. Advance tickets can be purchased on-line here.
