As the sun goes down, the eerie, the spooky and the creepy come out to play this Howl'o'ween at Chessington World of Adventures Resort. With a week of spooky spectacles set to be unleashed this October, thrills, howls and family fun awaits the bravest of guests, with jumps and goosebumps and rides in the dark around every corner. Open late every night until 8pm, Chessington’s Howl’o’ween presents two brand new attractions – the Curse of the Lost Tomb maze for braver souls and Trick or Treat Wood for courageous little explorers, as well as rides in the dark and spooky animal shows.


For the fearless Adventurer, the new Curse of the Lost Tomb maze will get toes tingling and hearts beating as explorers are encouraged to delve into the secret lost tomb of Genghis Khan, full of mystery and riddles. Meet an intriguing archaeologist in possession of a cryptic map and venture deeper and deeper into the tomb to help unveil the mystery behind this ancient site. Will all be revealed, or will the cursed tomb claim those who dare to enter? With a ghostly surprise at every turn and live actors, this interactive maze isn't for the faint hearted. This attraction is aimed at those over 10 and has a high bat rating for those who dare enter!


For those who prefer their scares a little sweeter, the Trick or Treat Wood is the perfect choice. Younger Adventurers must choose which path they'd like to take past the bewitching tree - will it be a tempting treat or a troublesome trick? Enchanted fairies and ghostly goblins will guide little explorers on their way, with plenty of tricks and treats suitable for families of all ages.


Rides in the dark are also making their return this year, with Chessington remaining open for last ride entry at 8pm! Take a flight of fright on Vampire to soar through the trees of Transylvania, enjoy Dragon’s Fury’s spectacular spin underneath the stars, or incur the wrath of Rameses’ Revenge with Chessington’s favourite rides available to enjoy under the dark cloak of night.


With over 40 rides and attractions in 10 themed lands, Chessington offers a world of excitement for the whole family this Howl’o’ween, with creepy crawly animal shows, the new Penguins of Madagascar Live: Operation Cheezy Dibbles show on the main stage and lots of character meet and greets promising fun and spooks around every corner.
