Space Age Halloween Fireworks

Todds Leap Horror Nights

  • October 16 - November 2

Face nightmarish walkways, hellish scare zones, narrow alleyways as you try to figure out exactly how you're going to get out.

Recommended for children over the age of 15. No costumes or masks allowed.

Halloween Torchlight Tours

  • October 30-31

Are you brave enough to take a stroll through the outdoor museum as darkness falls with only the light of a torch to guide you?

Ghosts, ghouls and witches will lurk in the shadows as you sample traditional foods such as barnbrack, pumpkin and shoofly pie. Not for the faint hearted.

Booking for the evening tours is essential.
