Visitor comments

This half-term we bring you a spooktacular special that will delight children and grown-ups alike...

The Witches

Take part in this essential witch spotter’s training session...but keep your wits about you!

  • Times: 11.30am, 1pm, 2.30pm and 4pm daily
  • Venue: Citrus Grove in our Mediterranean Biome

Fantastic Mr Fox

Tunnel into the farm to sneak out plump chickens and juicy apples, but beware...Boggis, Bunce and Bean are never far from the scene.

  • Venue: in the centre of our Outdoor Gardens

The Twits

Enter Mr and Mrs Twit’s house where terrible tricks and pranks await. Eyeballs, worms and tangled beards are the order of the day - are you brave enough to step inside?

  • Venue: Dome Tent in the Arena


Enter a mystical, magical world as you tiptoe your way through The BFG’s cave to the dream making station. But sshhh....sleeping giants lie in wait.

Plus, join our expert snozzcumber carvers to see fantastical creations – at 10.30am–12.30pm and 1.30–3.30pm each day.

  • Venue: The Hive building next to the Orchard


Every day is sports day at Crunchem Hall! Dare to enter the schoolyard and try out some near impossible challenges. But be careful – no one wants to end up in The Chokey!

  • Venue: outside, behind the Ice Rink

Ice skating

Come along for a skate on our chilling ice rink (extra charge applies).

The Creepy Cabin

Drop by The Creepy Cabin to try a Spooky Milkshake – near the entrace to the Mediterranean Biome. Choose from The Snotshake, Chilling Chocolate and Screaming Strawberry.

Relaxed Sessions

We're offering free, pre-bookable relaxed sessions for those with autism spectrum condition, sensory and communication needs or learning disabilities who may benefit from a more informal experience. To take part in one of these free sessions you need a valid Pass or admission ticket.

You can enjoy Halloweden at your own tempo in a more calm and gentle environment on Wednesday 25 and Friday 27 October. The sessions start at 8am (our car parks will open at 7.45am) and run until 9.30am, when Eden opens to other visitors.
