Flambards - Helston

Families can take to the cobbled streets of Flambards’ Victorian Village this half-term and hunt high and low through the 50 different sets and scenes to complete the spooky pumpkin trail quiz. Successfully completed trails can be exchanged for wickedly wonderful chocolate treats. Or scare yourself on Flambards’ mix of rides including the largest thrill ride in the South West; Sky Force.

While the vast majority of the rides and attractions will be open, the Exploritorium, Demon Drop slide and the indoor and outdoor play area will remain temporarily closed.

Bodmin Jail - Bodmin

Visit the newly reopened Bodmin Jail this Halloween and October Half Term.   Do you dare…?

As darkness falls and the jail attraction is at its most creepy, those with a taste for adrenaline can test their nerve with a choice of four devilish twilight experiences - exclusively for adults. The spooky line-up includes everything from ghost tours and scary movies, to all-night paranormal journeys with Bodmin Jail’s very own Paranormal Manager delivering a variety of spiritual techniques. Come daytime families with children can brave the brand-new Dark Walk experience, which combines state-of-the-art technology with Cornwall’s most haunting histories to deliver a truly immersive and interactive Halloween treat.

Swoop by and sink your teeth into this Halloween adventure for all the family.

Paradise Park - Hayle

Shipwreck Treasure Museum - Charlestown

Sign up for a paranormal night of investigations amongst the treasure and in the tunnels running under the old quayside. The Titanic display in the museum has direct links to Cornwall, as one of the lives lost on this fateful voyage was that of a young Cornishman, Frederick James Banfield. Born in Helston in 1884, he worked as a mining engineer in the Cornish tin mines. Has he returned home and will he want to tell his story?  ​

Halloweden - Eden Project

Go on a magical and mysterious journey around the Eden Project this October half-term, with a spooky but safe Halloween experience for you and your family. Explore a spooky story trail, discover petrifying plant facts and meet bewitching owls!  Why not dress up in your most fiendish fancy dress costumes too?

Monsters of the Deep - Falmouth

This wonderful exhibition takes you down into the dark murky depths of the ocean to discover the monsters that lurk beneath. Are there krakens with tentacles two miles long and giant sharks as big as skyscrapers? What strange beasts did the mariners of old see that inspired the old myths and legends?  Are you brave enough to meet the menacing  mermaid or the giant sea spider?
