In celebration of Halloween families will be able to meet ‘Patch’, a pumpkin-headed scarecrow, who is hosting his very own Pumpkin Party live stage show, at selected times throughout each day. This 20-minute interactive show includes spooky games, eerie magic and lots of dancing, ensuring everyone will have a fang-tastic time.
Following the show, guests will have the chance to meet Patch and snap a spooky selfie with him, which can be used to enter the Park’s photo competition, to be in with the chance of winning a family annual pass.
Bethan Davis, PR and Events Officer, said, “We’re really excited to be able to offer something brand new for our annual Spooky Spectacular event this year and we think adults and children are going to love it! We’ve been lucky enough to meet Patch already and I have no doubt that he will get everyone on their feet, dancing to his songs, laughing at his jokes and joining in with his games.”
She continued, “Our teams have been working really hard to transform our Discovery Trail, with over a thousand pumpkins, hay bales, cobwebs and much more. Our pumpkin patch especially looks fantastic and is ready for guests to take pictures in, to commemorate their day, or to enter our competition. We hope everyone has a brilliant time celebrating the Halloween season with us.”
As well as the live show, Patch will also need help from ‘spooky explorers’ for his ‘Perils of the Pumpkin Patch’ scratch card trail. The mischievous crows have stolen some of Patch’s prize pumpkins, which are brightly coloured and magical!
Children need to explore the Park’s walk-through areas, find the pumpkins and reveal a magic word which will scare off the crows and return the pumpkins to Patch. Successful explorers who find all six pumpkins, will earn a special sticker prize and a thank you message from Patch himself.
As well as Spooky Spectacular starting on 22 October, the Park’s brand-new event, Lantern Festival, also starts on this date. Running solely on selected evenings, the Park will be magically illuminated by the light of over a thousand lanterns, including a Halloween scene especially for the spooky season.
Spooky Spectacular runs from 22 to 31 October and is included in the standard admission charge of £25.00 for adults, £20.00 for children aged 3-15 and £22.00 for concessions. Children under the age of three are free of charge. Admission includes a Free Return Code to visit again in 6 months, only when booking online in advance, without a Tesco or ASDA voucher. Adventure Theme Park rides are charged extra.
