Halloween 2015…

Published on 9 Oct 2015 by Gwion Llwyd

If you’re lucky enough to be staying in one of our cottages over Halloween 2015, you’ll be pleased to know that Halloween Snowdonia Style does not have to involve standing around getting cold and wet watching your kids collect sweets! This is a place steeped in legend and myth so there is lots on offer – we have whittled it down to our top 5 which make for unique and exciting experiences you just won’t get anywhere else……

Halloween 2015...

On the 29th, 30th and 31st October, The Ffestiniog Railway is running twilight railway trips where you board the train in fancy dress at 6pm and are taken into the mountains where you stop off in the dark woods for some fireworks and a little something to eat in the creepy cafe. Prices start from £11.60 for children and £17.50 for adults.

Penryhn Castle just outside Bangor offers a range of activities including; The Penrhyn Castle Halloween Experience, The Boggle and Shapeshifter event and the very popular Twilight Tours where you are taken around the castle after dark by the old housekeeper and governess. You need to book in advance through the National Trust website.

Boo at the Zoo is taking place at Anglesey Sea Zoo on 30th October. A night time excursion at the Zoo is sure to set the hair on your arms on end. Starting off at 6.30pm, children in fancy dress are free and adults £8.50. This includes a buffet and a drink.

A new addition to the Halloween circuit is the Conwy Ghost Bus where victims are taken on a surreal tour of Llandrillo cemetery with the likes of the Professor and Harry the Old Sea Captain joining you on the way for lots of fun and ghostly frolics. Running from the 23rd -31st October, the bus departs from both Llandudno and Conwy – please call 01492 875100 to book your place.

If all of the above seem too much for your little ones, try a day out at Greenwood – their Spooktaculer is always a real hit with children (esp under 12) – fancy dress is a must followed by a day of freaky frolics.

If you fall into the over 18 bracket, you might want to go on a real ghost hunt at Bodelwyddan Castle – night hunts run from 9pm to 3am introducing you to the ways of a real ghost hunt using special equipment. So if you’ve ever wanted to be a real Ghost Buster, here’s your chance; tickets start from £40 pp and they have one running on Halloween Night…..
