The Woodland Railway line will become the Ghost Train! In addition to our usual characters around the route, see some spooky new visitors and the tunnel will be filled with wizard smoke, Join in with our Ghost Trail - answer all of our questions and you'll win a prize.

We'll have some Halloween witches and their cauldrons visiting our cafe, and you can feast on pumpkin cake and other Halloween treats!

Please note: as Lappa Valley is an attraction for the under 10s, this will be low key gentle fun, with no big scare factor or frightening characters.

All Halloween fun takes place from 24-31 October, during our normal opening hours.
