Spooky Activities in Snowdonia this Half Term

It’s the scariest time of the year, and there’s plenty of spooky goings-on throughout Snowdonia. We’ve rounded up the most terrifying attractions and toe-curling experiences for everyone to enjoy this half term.

Animal lovers can head to the Welsh Mountain Zoo for Fright Week! Follow the pumpkin trail, dare to see what’s inside the Boo boxes, get creepy with the crafts or be part of the spooky storytelling sessions.

Bala Lake Railway Halloween trains are back to terrify all the family on the 28th and 29th October 2022. Take a spooky trip down the track before disaster strikes and the crew is forced to turn back with a pitstop at the witches’ coven, before returning to the safety of Llanuwchllyn. Great dressed up and enjoy the fun!

Llanberis Lake Railway will be running their Spooktacular ghost trains from the 27th October to 2nd November, through the Witches Woods where the mischievous ghosts and ghouls are hiding. Calling all ghost hunters – everyone will receive a reward for helping catch these ghastly ghouls!

Brace yourselves for the return of the clowns, as the cursed carnival that is Ffear Fforest is back once again at Zip World in Betws y Coed. Escape the horde of demonic clowns as you navigate up to four thrilling adventures in North Wales’ ultimate Halloween experience.

Greenwood Family Park will be hosting SpookWood this year! Perfect for little visitors, get lost in the Scare Maze, dare to take part in the Monster Hunt, or pick your own pumpkin.  Weekends will take the fear factor up a notch with freakish shows, interactive frights, the circus of screams, and deadly pirates of fear island.

Less scary but a great destination to visit this half term is Anglesey Sea Zoo where visitors can be part of a very special launch event, ‘Menai – A turtley unexpected visitor’, a delightful storybook retelling the real-life adventure so Menai the turtle who was rescued and rehabilitated at Anglesey Sea Zoo.

It’s the last chance for rail lovers to visit Snowdon Mountain Railway before this much-loved attraction closes for winter, whilst Ffestiniog Highland Railways will take passengers through the wonders of Autumn to take in the colours and smells of this special time of the year.

Indoors, King Arthur’s Labyrinth offers a wonderful adventure underground on its unique sailing boats, whilst Plas Menai still has slots available for family swim and water fun.

We recommend pre-booking for all of these attractions to guarantee your place. Enjoy!
