For those who dare there’s the opportunity to get up close to creepy crawlies and conquer the tree top terrors ropes course under the cover of darkness.
The enchanted walled garden is home this Halloween to some live outdoor mini performances of Hansel and Gretel with more Grimm stories and folk tales being told by tale spinner Dave Tonge. There are other Halloween themed events taking place during the above dates including, Exotic Encounters – where visitors can get up close to some terrifying creepy crawlies, if they dare! Why not carve your own pumpkin to take home (£3.00) and enjoy some ghoulish face painting (from £4.00). Get creative with a witch-craft goodie bag that contains crafts to enjoy at home or whilst you are onsite. Choose trick or treat? There are trails within the walled garden to explore and a special treat once completed.
Have you got what it takes to defeat the wobbly crossings and swinging bridges under the cover of darkness in their treetop terrors ropes course? Look out for ghosts and ghouls, swooping bats and spooky spiders and tiptoe over the crossings before descending down the zip wires when the sky starts to dim. This horrifying adventure is available between the 28th and 31st October 2020, 5pm-8pm. It costs £18 per person and pre-booking is essential.
