The Eden Project turns off the lights and taps into its sixth sense this Halloween, with Scream - a spine-tingling Halloween trek through the Rainforest Biome.

On the evenings of Thursday October 31 and Friday November 1 visitors will be able to explore the rainforest after hours, using only the sounds and shadows of the jungle to guide them.

This special event is not for the faint-hearted as there will be numerous scares, each one increasing the tension as people venture further into the heart of darkness.

Chris Pritchard, Eden Live Production Manager, said: “Walking through a forest in the pitch black provokes a primal fear in people. Add a humid climate, the eerie sounds of a rainforest at night and some absolutely terrifying surprises along the way and people start looking for the nearest exit. Remember: in the jungle no one can hear you scream.”   

Scream sessions will take place every half hour on October 31 and November 1 from 6:30pm until 11pm, except at 8:30pm. Elsewhere, the site will be in high spirits with music in the Mediterranean Biome and ice skating, with the last slot taking place at 10pm. Food and drink will be available throughout the evening too.

Scream is not suitable for people who are pregnant, sufferers of heart conditions or photo-sensitivity, or anyone under the age of 12. Visitors under the age of 14 need to be accompanied by someone aged 16 or older.
