October half-term daytime and nighttime fun at the Den also includes a ‘Who Den It?’ Mystery, Monster Mash Disco, Scarecrow Golf, Missing Spell Book Trail and more.
Popular Yorkshire children’s attraction, William’s Den, is planning its spookiest Halloween to-date with tickets now available for two distinctive events – daytime Spooky adventures and Halloween nights after dark. Based in East Yorkshire between York, Beverley and Hull, the Den has more frighteningly fun activities than ever before.
WILLIAM’S SPOOKY ADVENTURE DAYS
From Saturday 28th to Tuesday 31st October 10am to 5pm, families are invited to William’s Spooky Adventures promising fun for all ages. Visit William’s Den to explore East Yorkshire’s first and only immersive Trick-or-Treat Street. Trick-or-Treat Street has magically popped up at the Den with colourful characters for children to meet behind every wooden door. Some will have sweets, others will have tricks. And grown-ups won’t have to worry about safety, traffic or grumpy neighbours!
And that’s just the start, kids can put their dancing shoes (or should that be dancing wellies?) on for a boogie at the Monster Mash Disco with terrifying tunes. Scarecrow Golf offers fun for kids and grown-ups alike – think mini golf with a Halloween twist, pumpkins a-plenty and photo opportunities to capture precious half-term memories.
Priscilla the Wise wants to help families into the Halloween spirit with an array of magical treats. But she’s misplaced her spell book and needs help to find it so she can make her potions as planned – a treasure trail and scavenger hunt all in one.
And to round off the fun, families can upgrade their adventure by with a Candy Apple Decorating Workshop and, of course, Pick a Pumpkin to take home for carving.
Tickets for daytimes are £13.95 for adults and £16.95 for children, available to book at www.williamsden.co.uk/spooky-adventures
WILLIAM’S HALLOWEEN NIGHTS
After darkness, William’s Halloween Nights will come alive Friday 27, Saturday 28 and Tuesday 31 October, 6pm til’ late. All ages are welcome, but activities have been designed for children aged six or over, with plenty for grown-ups to enjoy as well.
Visit Trick-or-Treat Street under moonlight to help solve the mystery of Who Den It? -an immersive promenade theatre experience. Someone has gone missing, and one resident knows more than they’re letting on. Will you solve the mystery before the detectives do?
Witness the Magic with an awe-inspiring show from a very special Magic Circle magician. Try your hand at Glow-in-the-Dark Scarecrow Golf – a Halloween treat made trickier after dark, will you get a hole-in-one with your glow-in-the-dark golf ball? And upgrade your adventure with torches at the ready to Pick your own Pumpkin by Moonlight.
Plus you and your little pumpkins can get in the Halloween spirit with Live Performances, DJ and Dance, Spooky Sideshow Games and William’s fabulous food & drink.
Tickets for nights are £15 for adults and children, available to book via www.williamsden.co.uk/halloween-nights
Tor Carver, who created William’s Den with her husband, Christian, said: “We’ve pulled out all the stops to make this Halloween our spookiest yet at William’s Den and there’s so much fun to be had. We’ve dreamt up some amazing activities, Trick-or-Treat Street is being completely purpose built and we can’t wait for it all to come to life – and to see how it changes between day and night. I’d recommend booking in advance as the events are proving popular and when tickets are gone, they’re gone!”
