Family Fright Festival Frequently asked questions

Family Fright Festival

Do we need to pre-book for this event?

Yes, this event must be pre-booked. You can book online using the link on the main event page.

Is a pumpkin included in the price?

No, a pumpkin isn't included in the admission price. If you'd like to pick a pumpkin then do bring some money with you. A pumpkin will cost £2 - £5 depending on size.

Are dogs allowed on the farm?

Yes, do see our dog policy here

Do adults need a ticket?

Yes, everyone aged 2 and over must have a ticket. Children under 2 are free.

Is it possible to just pick a pumpkin?

No, PYO pumpkin is only available as part of our Family Fright Festival activities which require a booked event admission ticket.

Is this event scary?

Hopefully not! It's designed to be spooky rather than scary so should be lots of fun for all. It's aimed at young families with children from 3 - 12 years old.

Will you run out of pumpkins?

Yes, we will run out of pumpkins at some point. Based on our calculations there should be pumpkins available on most dates but if pumpkin picking is important to you you should book one of our earlier dates.

What time should we arrive?

If you have a FULL DAY ticket the event is open from 10am - 5pm each day and you can arrive anytime between these times. If you've booked a PART DAY ticket you can arrive anytime from 2pm - 5pm. The park is open until 5pm. It's probably best to plan your day around the activity timetable which features timed activities throughout the day. The timetable is on the main page for this event. Most activities are repeated to give you a bit of choice and to make sure you don't miss out on stuff.

Can we just come into the farm park on this day (without the Family Fright Festival activities)?

No, on Family Fright Festival event days you'll only be allowed into the farm park if you purchase a Family Fright Festival ticket. It's not possible just to come into the farm park on the Family Fright Festival event dates.

Can we change our booked visit date?

Unfortunately not! Due to high demand we won’t be able to amend your ticket booking once purchased. Please choose your day carefully.

Can we book a part-day ticket for the morning (rather than the afternoon)?

No, sorry! The part-day admission is for access from 2pm - 5pm only. If you'd like to come along in the morning from 10am you will need FULL DAY tickets.

Can we walk to the pumpkin patch?

Due to the location of the patch it's only possible to access it using one of the timed tractor rides which make a drop-off at the pumpkin patch. Please do plan your visit accordingly.

I'm bringing a visitor with ASD, will it be busy?

We recommend a weekday visit outside of school holidays when the bookable ticket numbers are less. We may be able to do another tractor ride for you after the main timed rides if you let us know in advance.
