Witches and Wizards at Tropical Butterfly House

Saturday October 5th to November 3rd 2019

We’ve got some frighteningly good family fun for you throughout October Half Term Holiday!

Wannabee witches and wizards can take part in our school of witchcraft following our activity trail around the park! Try on our sorting hat to find out which wonderfully wizardry animal house you belong to, then try your hand at some broomstick training and have a dabble in our potion class in the witches cabin before graduating and receiving your certificate.

Are you brave enough to wander through our haunted house, find the storytelling witch in her cabin or jump aboard our spooky tractor trailer ride? Meet the wildest worst witch who keeps failing her sorcery exams at the spellbinding free flying bird and animal shows. Join her animal friends including owls, rats, a skunk and a vulture, to help her finally graduate from witchcraft school.

How scary can you be? Come dressed ready to cause a fright and enter the fancy dress competition. Whether you are a wizard, witch, ghost or pumpkin, make a magical memory at the selfie stop or get creative with Halloween inspired arts and crafts including pumpkin carving and face painting.
