Heart of England What's On

"Pumpkin Spooktacular"

Hatton Adventure World’s “Pumpkin Spooktacular”, which runs during half term from 25 October – 4 November, is always one of its most popular weeks and this year for the first time the Spooktacular has an evening programme too.

During the day you can pick and carve your own FREE pumpkin, visit the Haunted House, ride the Bewitching Trailer Ride, listen to Terrifying Tales of Agnes The Witch, watch Halloween Magic and Puppet Shows, take part in Zombie Run and Death Match Laser Combat Battles and see Snakes Alive and Tame the Dragon. Children are also encouraged to come dressed in Halloween themed costumes with spot prizes for the best dressed.


However this year on 26, 27, 30 and 31 October, Hatton Adventure World is also open after dark. Dragons, scarecrows and ghosts will become illuminated on the Bewitching Trailer Ride, Magic and Mayhem form up for amazing Illusion Shows whilst Fire-Eaters mingle with Jugglers to make for an unforgettable experience.


And on the Halloween menu there are such delicacies as Freaky Fishcakes, Spooky Pizzas and Worm Dog with Chips!


Richard Craddock, Chief Ghost and Manager said “Families with children aged 3 to 12 come to Hatton so we have different levels of scariness for each age group. The evenings will be a bit scarier than the daytime as by then the younger ones will be in bed. At £15.95 on-line to include all this is fantastic value for money and for those who wish to come or stay on for the evenings, there’s no extra charge”.


Hatton Adventure World covers some 100 acres and is home to over 450 creatures, great and small. Alongside all the Pumpkin Spooktacular events there is also indoor and outdoor adventure play, falconry, Laser Combat, Gold Rush and lots of other activities. 


Hatton Adventure World is open every day throughout the year (excluding Christmas Day and Boxing Day) from 10am to 5.30pm. For more information please visit the website at www.hattonworld.com/adventure-world or telephone 01926 843411.
