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 as part of the tractor ride 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. The most scary activity is the beastly barrel train wich does feature live monsters so very young children may want to avoid that one.
Will you run out of pumpkins?
Possibly! Based on our calculations there should be pumpkins available on all dates but if pumpkin picking is important to you you should book one of our earlier dates.
What time should we arrive?
This event is open from 10am - 5pm each day and you can arrive anytime between these times. 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.
