Halloween at Kent Life Heritage Farm Park
There will be thrills and chills aplenty at Kent Life Heritage Farm Park with a scary series of Halloween events for all the family to enjoy this month. The award-winning attraction, near Maidstone, will host separate activities for families and adults towards the end of October as the frightening season gets underway.
Little monsters will be able to make the most of the school holidays at the Halloween Spooktacular (October 21st – October 31st) where youngsters are invited to brave the creepy crawlies, take a terrifying tractor ride and search for friendly ghouls on the wooden hunt. There will also be the chance to carve pumpkins, trick or treat the residents of Kent Life’s farmhouses and historic homes, and take part in the daily fancy dress competition.
Families can explore more supernatural sights with Kent Life After Dark (October 25th only) where there will be spine-chilling guided tours suitable for under 9s from 5pm to 6pm and for older visitors from 7pm to 8pm. Brave souls can also visit the Ugly Bug Ball with the Kent Life entertainers and take a ride on the Land Train to hear some ghostly tales.
When darkness falls, however, the attraction will be transformed into an adult-only zombie-infested zone as it becomes ‘Kentaminated’ (October 27th – 31st) between 6.30pm and 9.30pm. With the arrival of the apocalypse, Brundle’s Big Top becomes a medical tent to cope with rising numbers of casualties and members of staff fight to defend Kent Life’s historic houses from ruin. The only chance of escaping the zombie outbreak is to gather with fellow humans at the registration point before being guided through the park to the safe zone. Will you be one of the lucky ones who survive the virus?
