Halloween at Fort Douglas

About Halloween at Fort Douglas

It’s creepy and it’s kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
It’s altogether ooky,
Fort Douglas Halloween!

So grab your broom and witch hat,
Or turn into a black bat,
There’s so much fun to have at,
Fort Douglas Halloween!

Summoning all witches, werewolves, zombies, ghouls, ghosts and skeletons… Fort Douglas beckons you to a frightfully fantastic weekend of Halloween fun.

Join us in the Witches Den and take part in a range of icky activities. Cast spooky spells, conjure up some ‘poisonous’ potions, spawn scary slime and craft some creepy crawly creatures. Activities in the Den will start at the witching hours of 11:30, 12:30, 14:30 and 15:30.

We will also be running a petrifying Pumpkin Treasure Hunt around the adventure park, and a prize will be available for the scariest fancy dress costume (Boy/Girl). And don’t forget to drop by Restoration Yard store, where you can discover a spook-tacular selection of Halloween treats.

So get your most grotesque glad rags on and make your way to Fort Douglas Adventure Park on the 27th/28th October.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Halloween at Fort Douglas are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
