Step right up, step right up – Enter our Creepy Carnival if you dare!


A Freaky Festival of Fun

There’ll be lots to see and do throughout the Park, as the spirit of Halloween truly takes over on 27th, 28th and 29th October 2018! This dazzling day of fun will take place from 10am-6pm each day!

The creepiest carnival in town will be right here at YWP, complete with Coconut shy, hoop la stalls, walking (dead) entertainers and much more. It’s our BIGGEST Halloween event ever, with a cast of over 40 performers joining us for three days of spooky fun!

Face-painters* will transform you, in the traditions of the ancient celebration ‘Dia de Muertos’ – or Day of the Dead.

You’ll even have the chance to learn clown skills and enjoy a free craft workshop, in a Halloween celebration that is truly suitable for all ages.

All the live shows are included in admission, and visitors can explore the entire 100-acre park and our unique collection of more than 400 animals, across 70 species, including some of the most at-risk and beautiful from around the world.
