It can still be a happy Halloween, even in this time of uncertainty. We have some freakishly-fun entertainment on at Hendra and there are many places to choose from to visit for a family fun day out. With safety measures in place, you can relax (between frights!) and enjoy these spooky days out in Cornwall!
1. ScaryLand at DairyLand
DairyLand, animal farm, is transformed into ScaryLand this Halloween! Easy to reach in the car from Hendra, it is a great family day out.
Halloween favourites feature like the Pumpkin Patch, Pumpkin Carving, Creepy Craft and the Witches Wood!
There are Dairyland regulars like Pat-a-Pet and the newly refurbished milking of Clarabelle in the Haybarn which has all the cute animals ready for you to meet.
There is a brand new Pedal Town opening too.
Pre-booking is essential. Book here.
2. Healeys Pumpkin Trail
Cider fans can unite, and enjoy the Healeys Cyder Farm; home to the famous Rattler Cider. They now do their own Whisky and Gin ranges too.
This half-term you can go on a pumpkin trail whilst exploring the farm. See how cider is made from the giant cyder vat and museum of cyder to the cobbled courtyard, visit the jam kitchen and farm animals, with the help of a map. The whole family will love finding the hidden pumpkins, and unscrambling the letters, found carved into each pumpkin to spell out a spooky word. If you get it right, you could win a small, sweet treat!
You can also take a tractor ride around the leafy orchards on Big Bertha, a 1950s Fordson Major tractor.
Pre-book day tickets here. Maps are £1.
3. Halloweek at Camel Creek
Camel Creek hosts a half-term full of horrors, not only do you have the usual attractions but all of this too!
The House of Horrors – dare you walk through this haunted scare zone? Play trick or treat – if you are brave enough to knock on the door. Enjoy Cryptic corner, a walk through the reptile house with a spooky twist. Enter the Witch’s grotto, for spooky stories too.
No Halloween is complete without a pumpkin patch and Camel Creek has an Apple Jack Pumpkin Patch, with free pumpkins for all little guests (whilst stocks last).
The minions have got their Halloween costumes on too and the Monster minions will be visiting on the 26th and 27th of October.
Don’t forget the rides, such as the Clown Coaster, Dina’s Dancing Flowers a classic teacup ride and a mini Ferris wheel, Swampy’s Sky Ride: you can see over the whole park from the top! There are many more attractions too. Take a look on the website for all of the fun details. Remember to pre-book here as soon as possible to make sure you get to experience this fun.
There’s a host of fantastic family fun on offer at Flambards throughout the October Half Term holidays.
From thrilling adventures in the Big Ride Zone, to fascinating discoveries in the indoor attractions, there is something for kids, big and small, this half term.
Families can take to the cobbled streets of Flambards’ Victorian Village and hunt high and low through the 50 different sets and scenes to complete the spooky pumpkin trail quiz. Successfully completed trails can be exchanged for wickedly wonderful chocolate treats.
Budding detectives can also have a go at completing the Who Dunnit Mystery Trail to discover which of the village’s colourful cast of characters committed the crime.
On your eerie adventure, immerse yourself in perfectly-preserved shops filled with thousands of 19th century artefacts, as you are transported back in time.
Britain in the Blitz dramatically recreates what a London street would have been like during WW2. Listen out for the deafening air raid sirens and feel the floor shake as another bomb goes off.
Experience Flambards’ mix of rides including the largest thrill ride in the South West – Sky Force and hop aboard the rides in Ferdi’s Funland for a gentler pace.
While the vast majority of the rides and attractions will be open, the Exploratorium, Demon Drop slide and the indoor and outdoor play area will remain temporarily closed.
Tickets must be booked online.
