The Halloween Experience 2018

The Halloween Experience 2018


From 20 October to 31 October Brockhole is being taken over by monsters, ghouls and ghosts and you're invited to join them!

This year we've had our cauldron out and cooked up the biggest and best Lake District Halloween experience that Brockhole has ever seen.

The only thing you should be truly scared of is missing out...

Dare you follow the pumpkin trail into the gruesome ancient forest, enter the haunted house to see the gory gamekeeper or find your way through the marquee of macabre monsters? Try your hand at Zombie archery – can you stop them before they reach you? Will you Brave the creepy-crawlies in the Cave, and have you got the nerve and the eye for laser clay shooting in a giant spiders nest? Hide behind pillows as you listen to scary Cumbrian ghost stories, have a go at making your own horrifying Halloween mask, or a wicked wicker man, and then enjoy some special witches brew and a green goblin cake!
