Mighty monsters and dashing dragons will be prowling Yorkshire Wildlife Park in a magical adventure of Mystical Beasts and Creatures this October half term.   

Fancy dress for children is highly recommended to get into the spirit of the event which takes place over three days during half term at the award-winning park from Saturday 22nd October to Monday 24th October.   

Visitors will have a chance to meet characters from fairytales, myths and legends from trolls to griffins and dragons in an unrivalled festival of mythical mystery at the park at Auckley, near Doncaster.   

The host of live entertainment will include several performances of Beauty and the Beast throughout the day. There is also the interactive Victorian side show exploring the exquisite oddities and exotic curiosities from the amazing and weird world of Professor Obscurious.  

There are also a variety of fairground rides to enjoy (extra charges apply).  

The event is included in the entry to the Wildlife Park so also offers the chance to get close to more than 400 animals from rare and endangered species at the 150-acre park.  

For those who live further afield, there is a special overnight offer at the Hex Hotel at the Hive just meters from the entrance to the Wildlife Park.   

Not only are breakfast and entry included in the price, but children can enjoy a complimentary spooky themed treasure trail around the Yorkshire Hive.  

“Everyone loves Halloween fun at half term and there will be plenty of opportunity for fun, fancy dress, surprises at every turn and seeing the park’s incredible animals,” says CEO John Minion.  

“The October Half Term is always something to look forward to and, even though the days are getting chillier, you can wrap up warm and enjoy a magical time.”   

Hallowe’en at Yorkshire Wildlife Park is a highlight of the calendar with crowds enjoying a range of themed entertainment and tickets can be bought online in advance with a special discount or at the Guest Experience Kiosks on the day. Normal admission prices apply.  

Yorkshire Wildlife Park offers visitors a unique walk through experience coming almost face to face with some of the world’s most beautiful and at risk species, including the country’s only Polar Bears, Sea lions, Amur Tigers and Leopards and Rhino.
