Tickets for Paultons Park’s Halloween Spooktacular and Celebration of Christmas events are on sale now

Paultons Park, the UK’s best value theme park*, has confirmed the return of its popular Halloween Spooktacular and Celebration of Christmas events this Autumn and Winter.

The Halloween Spooktacular sees the leading attraction undergo a ghoulish makeover for the event taking place between Thursday 12th October and Monday 30th October 2023. A western-themed transformation for Tornado Springs is sure to thrill guests with a ghostly surprise or two, while Peppa Pig World’s ghoulish makeover will bring a spooky touch to the famous experience.

The Legend of Paultons Manor show, an all-singing and dancing extravaganza, returns on selected dates throughout October, with a special Halloween tale suitable for families to enjoy. Paultons Park’s very own Halloween mascots, the Spirit Squad, will be haunting the park with several opportunities for visitors to meet the friendly phantoms. Families can enjoy late-night openings and the unique opportunity to experience Paultons Park at dusk on Tuesday 24th, Wednesday 25th and Thursday 26th October 2023.

December will see the return of Paultons Park’s ever-popular Celebration of Christmas event with the attraction transformed into a winter wonderland on selected dates from 2nd December to 23rd December 2023. Peppa Pig fans will delight as Peppa Pig World takes on a fresh festive look, with Peppa herself welcoming friends in her special jolly outfits.

Returning for 2023, Paultons Park will welcome families to meet Father Christmas in his very own grotto. Families will be able to enjoy exclusive time with Santa, where they can take photos, tell him what is on their Christmas lists and explore the magical grotto full of reindeer, polar bears and toy makers. Early booking is advised for Santa’s Grotto to avoid disappointment.

Santa’s Christmas Wish Show! brings even more of the spirit of Christmas to the park throughout December. Families can snuggle up in the undercover seating area to enjoy the show which features singing, dancing, special effects and fun with Billy and Belinda the elves, Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Reindeer and guest starring the man himself – Father Christmas!

James Mancey, Operations Director at Paultons Park, said: “We know how important it is for our visitors to have something special to look forward to for both Halloween and Christmas. Seasonal occasions always present brilliant opportunities to do something different and really bring a touch of extra magic to the park.

“Guests come back year after year to enjoy the seasonal events that offer families even more value for money. Our memorable events offer guests a unique way to celebrate together this winter and are sure to be a highlight for all the family.”

Situated in the award-winning New Forest National Park, Hampshire, Paultons Park has been recognised as one of the world’s leading attractions by TripAdvisor and is now recognised as one of the best value family attractions in the UK.
