Oakwood’s annual Halloween celebration, Spooktacular, is to host a number of new rides and attractions.

The popular Spooktacular event will run at the Pembrokeshire theme park on the weekend of October 19 and every day during the autumn half term, from October 26 to November 2.

As well as being able to experience a range of spooky attractions and scare mazes, visitors to Oakwood Theme Park can see live action events, with zombies and other scary creatures poised to frighten and entertain guests.

The theme park will be home to two new themed scare mazes this Spooktacular, one known as Clowning Around and the other as Y Pentref (the Village).

Clowns will invite guests into the Clowning Around maze for some circus fun, while the bravest of visitors will enter the Village through an abandoned mine shaft.

The popular Hide. Run. attraction is returning to this year’s Spooktacular party, with a revamped layout and challenge that involves participants battling to escape the maze and its blood-eating zombies.

Visitors will also be able to take part in Witch Hunt, a horror industry nomination for the 2019 Scare Awards. The Witch Hunt scare maze combines specially created audio, lighting and other effects, alongside live actors to enthral guests.

Visitors will be able to watch the Witch Hunt action unfold on live on screens in Oakwood’s pizza outlet, The Haunt.

Late night ‘Spooktacular Bites Back’ events will be taking place at the park on October 26 to October 31, when the park will remain open until 8:30pm, so guests can enjoy the spooky fun after dark.



With cracking skeletons, ghostly ghouls, and other sinister figures roaming around, there’s plenty of spooky fun taking place at Europa-Park, Germany’s largest theme park.

Every aspect of the theme park, including the shows, attractions, parades and food, have adapted a Halloween theme, which runs from September 28 to November 3, 2019.

Visitors over the age of 16 can visit the ‘Horror Nights – Traumatica’, a multi-award event that takes place in a post-apocalyptic world.

Augmenting the creepy atmosphere of the park will be 180,000 pumpkins scattered about, alongside 3,000 bales of straw, spider trees and a wealth of ghostly illuminations.

A pumpkin exhibition is being held in the Castle Park, where guests can witness works of art made from pumpkins and autumn flowers.

Another key highlight is a series of handmade sculptures made from sand that are erected around the Tiroler Log Flume.

The whole family can meet the monsters and other chilling creatures in the Europa-Park Halloween Parade.

Guests of all ages can also immerse themselves in the park’s 4D Magic Cinema, and watch the 4D movie, ‘Ed & Edda in ‘Chaos in Wonderland,’ featuring Euromaus and friends.



Spooky family fun is coming to Busch Gardens Williamsburg in the Count’s Spooktacular Halloween event.

Every Saturday and Sunday from October 5 – 27, 2019, children aged 9 and under can dress up in their favourite Halloween costume and enjoy exploring the park’s newly-themed hay maze as they encounter much-loved Sesame Street characters also adorning Halloween costumes.

Young visitors can participate in a Halloween dance party, enjoy some spooky entertainment at the Countdown to Halloween show, visit trick-or-treat stations and witness interactive performances carried out by the Count and his friends.

Other Halloween-themed fun at Count’s Spooktacular include a Monsters and Fairies event, where families can join Elmo and Cadabby for colouring, mask making, costume dancing and more.

More craft making and searching for ghosts in the hay maze can be enjoyed by little ones at the Super Grover event.

Bert and Ernie will host a Pirate Party, with plenty of dancing, colouring and searching for ghosts in the hay maze will take place.

Rosita will show off her fiesta Halloween costume in the Rosita’s Halloween Fiesta event, where youngsters will have fun searching for Mardi Gras in the hay maze.

The internationally-distinguished horror event, ‘Horror Nights – Traumatica’ is showing at Europa Park this autumn.

From September 25 to November 2, 2019, evil will ascend on Germany’s largest theme park., as five rival groups in a post-apocalyptic world battle for power and to find their place in the hierarchy.

Visitors are very much at the heart of this interactive show, having to choose which group they will fight for – The Fallen, The Ghouls, The Pack, The Shadows and The Resistance.

Will guests at this iconic horror event fall for the madness of The Fallen, or will they lose their human features with The Ghouls?

Perhaps they will fight for power with The Resistance, or chase innocent beings with The Pack? Or maybe they will join forces with The Shadows.

This interactive horror show takes place on Fridays and Saturdays from September 27 – November 2, 2019 and daily on September 25, October 2, 3, 13 and 20 and on October 24 – November 2, 2019, expect on October 28 and 29.
