The Eden Project is challenging visitors to venture deep into the tropics after dark to discover the scariest thing in the rainforest.

On the nights of Thursday and Friday, October 28-29, they will be sent on a sensory journey through the world’s largest rainforest in captivity with only the sounds and shadows of the jungle to guide them.

Watch a preview of Skate and Scream here:

For a £10 entry fee to the Skate and Scream nights, visitors over 12 can enjoy a skate session on the spooktacular ice rink before joining a spine-tingling exploration of the Rainforest Biome.

Richard Good, Eden’s Pollination Team Leader, said: “Skate and Scream is a chance to experience the primitive power of the rainforest. Perhaps the scariest thing of all is that an area the size of this gigantic Biome is destroyed in the world every 10 seconds.”
