In a week full of ghoulish and ghastly activities - Dr Gore and team have some great creations up their sleeves which they want you to try! Discover all things green and gooey at the Slime Station, find your inner wizard and help make colourful potions for secret purpose.
There’s opportunity to design and make in the “Spooky Spinks” where you can make your very own miniature broomstick and design a witches hat - plus get in the Halloween mood in our dress up area and take a selfie at our Spooky Selfie Station.
Only for the bravest of them all is the the Ghoulish Night Vision Experience, things get creepy in the dark - will you find enough clues to make in the dark to make it out before the ghouls are unleashed!
