BeWILDerwood's Glorious Glowing Lantern Parade

BeWILDerwood's Glorious Glowing Lantern Parade

Details

BeWILDerwood's most famous, fabulous, fantastical event of the year, The Glorious Glowing Lantern Parade!

Have the best day exploring the magical woodland, meeting the BeWILDerbats and seeing the spooky decorations in the park. It’s a treat, not a trick, running wild through tree houses and zipping on zip wires at BeWILDerwood!

But make sure you stay for dusk, that’s when the real fun begins! BeWILDerwood will glow in a magical light extravaganza. See the woods in a whole new light, as all the inhabitants come out celebrate the Glorious Glowing Lantern Parade!

Get creative in the Big Hat and craft a beautiful lantern for a Slitheriegrub to live in, which will guide your way through the dusty gloam. Wear your best spooky costumes and visit the Face Painting Pavilion (all inclooosive of course!) to make sure you look truly spooktacular!

The BeWILDerbats have set up a secret hideout somewhere in the wild woods, see if you can find it and discover their Spooktacular home! Make sure you have a joke ready, the only way you can enter is to make Snagglefang laugh!

Snagglefang is writing his best joke yet, he can’t wait for you to hear it!

All activities including the parade are included in the ticket price!
