Oakwood prepping for ‘Spooktacular’ Halloween

Behind You...Halloween fun on the Speed ride at Oakwood Theme ParkOakwood Theme Park is being transformed in to a ‘Scream Park’ to  celebrate Halloween with scary family  fun for all ages to enjoy.

The Pembrokeshire park will be presenting a new interactive live show narrating the story of ‘The Ghost of Skull Rock’ including laser and  pyrotechnics – perfect for all the family.

There will also be a children’s pumpkin trail, creepy characters  in the Spooky 3D ride, live music, and a ‘Theatre of Nightmares’ set in an  abandoned theatre for adult visitors.

The fun starts at midday with some extra special surprises on the  ghost train ride ‘Spooky 3D’.

Park Director Dominic Jones comments;


 “The ride takes  visitors through the inside of a haunted house with a series of scary effects  waiting for them around every corner,”


“However, throughout the ‘Spooktacular’ event we’re including some  real-life characters to add an extra interactive spooky feel to the ride which  should keep even those who have ridden it before guessing where the next  surprise will come from,”

he added.

Between 3pm and 5pm adult visitors will be able to test their  nerves in the ‘Theatre of Nightmares’. Full details are a closely guarded secret  but the shows will include live actors, confined spaces…and reptiles! 

At 5pm all the family will be able to enjoy a new Halloween-themed  show in Neverland. ‘The Ghost of Skull Rock’ will feature actors, live music,  dance, lasers and pyrotechnics to produce a thrilling finale to the day’s  events.

To add to the fun and thrills Oakwood team members will be donning  their own spooky Halloween costumes.


“We’ve tried to put together a packed programme of activity for  Halloween which appeals to all ages and will provide fun thrills and chills for  everyone,”

said Dominic.

The Halloween event takes place on October 27th -31st.
