What is Spooktacular?

Spooktacular, which will run until October 31, is sure to be frightfully good fun. Guests can expect thrills, spills and chills with attractions including, a wide range of exciting rides, spooky photo opportunities and delicious food options.

From thrill seekers looking for a spine-tingling time to ‘little pumpkins’, Spooktacular does not disappoint, with all rides included in all wristbands purchased. U12s need to be accompanied by an adult over 18.

Spooktacular tickets get you unlimited access to all rides for the duration of your four hour session alongside being able to explore the food, photo opportunities, games and attractions.

How much are tickets to Spooktacular?

The ticket prices are based on height rather than age, meaning if you’re tall enough to ride everything then you’ll need a different ticket to those who aren’t. Those under 1.2 metres will be able to get a ‘Little Pumpkins’ ticket which is priced at £12 in advance, or £17 on the door. Anyone over 1.2m will need to buy a ‘Gross Grown-Up’ ticket which is priced at £15 in advance, or £20 on the door.

The Addams Family ticket, for two Gross Grown-Ups and two Little Pumpkins, are also available at £45 in advance, or £65 on the door.

Spooktacular has a limited number of Non-Rider tickets for each session - they will gain access to the event but will not be able to ride any of the rides without a valid wristband. These are prices at £3 in advance, or £4 on the door.

Payment plans will also be available for families wanting to split the ticket price over two payments.
