There are plenty of goodies, and just a few tips, in store for the residents of East Devon this October semester …
Plenty of thrills and thrills are promised at Seaton Tramway, where a spooky mid-Halloween Halloween chase is sure to get passengers into the spirit of the season. The eagle-eyed youth are encouraged to track down escaped ghouls, who roam at stations and on streetcars, and to mark their observations on an activity sheet. When all the ghosts have been spotted and the activity sheets have been completed, a delicious treat is awarded to the hungry ghost hunters. For even more thrills, Halloween-themed activities will take place at certain times at Colyton Station.
Further along the coast, young daredevils are challenged to board the Beer Frights Light Railway and experience the spooky Pecorama Tunnel, where a Halloween puzzle course is also located. Treats are reserved for children who complete the course and those who arrive in disguise at the Beer attraction.
A few miles down the road at Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary, visitors will be encouraged to learn about the lovable and enchanting residents with long ears. As an alternative to a spooky trail, kids can go on a search for exciting facts about the donkeys around the shrine, complete several trail activities along the way, and claim a prize and sticker at the end.
Further inland, Crealy’s popular Spook-Fest returns once again with its abundance of thrills that this year includes a Creaky Hotel, an escape room-style attraction. Other highlights include a spooky maze of scarecrows, a witch trail, and the Pumpkin Patch plot. Entrance tickets cover the cost of Halloween activities and a free pumpkin for each child to take home.
Back on the coast, the world of country living will have strange characters roaming its site! There is also a hilarious Halloween show called “I Lost My Mum”, a Halloween trail and pumpkin carving activities.
Recognizing the quality of events in the region, Dick Wood, President of the Devon Tourist Attractions Association, said: “Devon is going to be a horribly awesome place for this October semester. Devon’s best attractions continue to offer some of the best seasonally themed family entertainment.
