Dear Mummy, we’re into the spooky season and one of our annual traditions is a trip to Paultons Park for their Happy Halloween event. Every year my folks buy tickets and we take the short journey to visit.
This year it was back bigger and better than ever with the Halloween decorations extending into Peppa Pig World for the first time! There were pumpkins EVERYWHERE and even outside the main entrance decorations and banners were hung creating excitement for little ones like me! Check out my video tour to see!
I love Peppa Pig, so I donned my favourite purple Halloween top and headed to Paultons Park with my folks for a day of full-on family fun. Paultons is the home of Peppa Pig World and located in Hampshire, England, with over 70 rides and attractions. The 140 acres of the park has been split into four themed worlds, Lost Kingdom, Peppa Pig World, Critter Creek and the main park.
It’s been raining for the majority of October but we were lucky enough to visit on a glorious sunny autumn day. Expecting it to be busy we were pleasantly surprised that the theme park wasn’t heaving. In fact we hardly queued for any of the rides all day, opting to use the very helpful Paultons Park app to navigate our way around the park.
We made a beeline for Peppa Pig World first to see the new decorations and do a quick meet and greet with Peppa and George. I loved that they were dressed up in Halloween outfits. Peppa was dressed as a witch and George was dressed as a pumpkin.
Of course I couldn’t resist stopping for a couple of photo ops before we got there and I posed in the cauldron and the giant pumpkins. The attention to detail was amazing and each area had a spooky feel to it!
I loved trying to count all the pumpkins in Pickles Pumpkin Patch as we walked through the gardens – it really was a photographers dream. It was great to be one of the first visitors through the gates into Peppa Pig World to see it transformed for Halloween and the first thing I spotted was the giant spider on top of the Peppa shop.
We managed to go on practically all the rides and even had a play in the soft play area while my folks enjoyed a quick coffee stop. We loved the new spooky music in Peppa Pig world and all the Halloween inspired goods in the shop.
One of our highlights was Boo Barn, family walk through Halloween experience which caters for little ones. It’s a lovely edition for Halloween and wasn’t scary for children. With moving animatronics like talking chickens and farm tools, I liked listening to the pumpkins telling jokes. The Paultons Park staff were dressed up and happily posed for photographs which was a nice touch.
The Happy Halloween event is on during the whole of October but between 26th October – 3rd November there will be live shows to watch. With two late night openings upcoming on Tuesday 29th and Thursday 31st October its going to be spooktacular!
While we were there we saw Little Monster’s Ball show, a spooky dance show and I had a good boogie! Last year we watched The Legends of Paultons Manor show and loved it but it’s only available during half term week, so make sure you catch it – as its brilliant and reminds me of Scooby Doo! The Paultons team are super talented, friendly and welcoming so us little ones get a real buzz out of watching them perform. I loved seeing Pickles bust some moves with the other dancers.
I had a fantastic day and I’m sure you can tell by my smile. Happy Halloween is at Paultons Park until 3rd November and you can prebook your tickets now to save money on the gate like we did. I can’t wait to return next year and along with the addition of new area Tornado Springs, coming to Paultons Park early 2020, we’re going to have a blast! Make sure you download the app and make use of the scheduler which will allow you to create a plan for your day so you don’t miss the important things, it reminds you so you’re never late for a show or ride! Have a spooktacular time everyone.
Love Bella x
