Half Term Halloween Fun!

12 Oct

If you are bored of all your local haunts, stake out the fun at Drusillas Park over the Halloween period. Between Saturday 22nd and Monday 31st October, Drusillas have conjured up some fang-tastically spooky surprises to keep your little horrors half term happy.

Venture through the creepy cobwebbed corridors of The Haunted Cottage into the terror-tory of Winifred the witch, as she plays hide and shriek with the unsuspecting public! Be warned however, Winifred and her frightful cat can startle young children and those of a nervous disposition!!

Winifred and her fiendish tricksters have also buried a wealth of their witchy wares within the sandy hollows of Dino-Dig. Help Drusillas reverse Winifred’s spell and return to normality, by retrieving the items in exchange for a tasty treat.

Visitors can also jump aboard Thomas the Tank Engine to complete the Pumpkin Challenge and experience a hair-raising haul through the Spooky Tunnel. With all this, plus the usual animal magic it’s well worth hopping on your broomstick and flying to Drusillas.

Fun Family Events at Drusillas Park

Tomorrow, Good Friday 22nd April, Drusillas will host Weird & Wonderful Animal Encounters allowing visitors to get up close and personal with some of nature’s most quirky and unusual creatures.

Amongst the animals taking up residence in the Discovery Centre for one day only will be a marvellous armadillo, tremendous turtles, fabulous frogs and a superb skunk.

This is the first time this event has been held at the award-winning zoo, giving visitors the opportunity to speak to experts from Animazing and learn some fun and interesting facts.

On Bank Holiday Monday 25th April, don’t forget to Frog-march yourself and your friends to Drusillas to meet some of the slithery and scaly species taking residence in the Discovery Centre for the Reptile Roadshow.

Throughout the day, there will be a range of reptiles on display and experts will be available to give advice on these fangtastic creatures.

If you find snakes charming or think your knowledge of boas is constricted, this is an ideal opportunity to find out more about them, as well as a whole host of other wondrous reptiles.
