West Midland Safari Park is getting ready to charm guests this Halloween season with its annual Spooky Spectacular event and this year, there’s magic in the air!
Beginning on 19 October, the two-week long festival includes ‘Potion Quest’, a brand-new interactive trail where children must help Wilbert the Wizard with a spell to reunite his family.
By navigating their way around the Park’s Discovery Trail, guests will encounter a number of mischievous witches and wizards, who are each guarding a different ingredient to Wilbert’s potion. Once they have collected all of the ingredients in their potion bottles, they will receive a magical sweet treat for their efforts.
Head of Marketing, Rochelle Zare, said, “We’re so excited for this year’s Spooky Spectacular. Not only will guests be able to see our incredible animals enjoying the Halloween season on safari, but they’ll also be able to interact with our resident family of witches and wizards, ‘The Grimleys’!
“As dusk falls across the Safari Park, we hope lots of families are able to join in the Halloween fun and help head wizard, Wilbert, in his quest to find all the hidden ingredients across the Park’s Discovery Trail. Guests can check the Park’s website to find out when they’ll catch our witches and wizards, as well as finding out what other spooky happenings are taking place at West Midland Safari Park!”
To celebrate the spookiest of seasons, the Park will be themed with over 600 pumpkins and 100 scarecrows, which guests will be able to see in all of their glory when they are illuminated after dark, during the Park’s extended opening hours on weekends and half-term. Brave guests will also be able to experience the Adventure Theme Park and Land of the Living Dinosaurs in the dark!
Additionally, guests can take part in a competition to win a family Annual Pass Plus by taking their picture with a spooky character and uploading it to the Park’s Facebook page. Guests are also encouraged to attend in Halloween fancy dress to join in with the frightful fun.
Spooky Spectacular runs from 19 October to 3 November and is included in the group admission charge of £11.00 for adults, £10.00 for children aged 3-15 and £10.50 for concessions based on ten or more paying passengers arriving by coach or mini bus.
