02 Sep Top 5 European Theme Parks in Halloween
There are plenty of theme parks that do something special once the autumn weather rolls around. From Mickey’s Halloween Party to LEGOLAND and Knott’s Berry Farm, read on to discover the best amusement parks to visit in the fall. Is there one near you on the list?
September and October are actually when theme parks explode with festivities. Beloved characters wear too-cute costumes, pumpkins go on parade and rides bring autumnal thrills in the daytime, while pop-up mazes, haunted houses fill the space between theme park attractions at night, offering eerie extravaganzas at special ticketed events or even free with park admission.
1)Portaventura World (Tarragona, Spain)
The most frightfully fun time of the year has arrived
From September 21st to November 17th of 2019 and prepare yourself for a celebration where mystery and excitement reign.
Enter a jungle swarming with strange creatures, be brave enough to discover the secret passages of the streets of Penitence and see an amazing Halloween show on the gloomiest lake in the park. Younger visitors will gasp in amazement with the special characters at the Halloween Family Festival in SésamoAventura and they’ll have fun with Grover, Elmo, Cookie Monster, Bert, Ernie and Zoe with their Halloween songs and dances. And every day when the park gets ready to close, it’s time for all the stars of PortAventura World’s Halloween to get together for a terrifyingly fun parade.
2)Disneyland Paris (Paris, France)
The most famous Halloween party this year 2019 is double and will be held on October 26, 2019 and October 31, 2019 at Disneyland Park. A unique experience to share with family or friends from 20.00 pm to 2:00 am.
Disneyland Park closes that day at 19:00 to open its doors again in a spooky night where attendees will be able to see it as they have never seen before in a more mysterious environment than ever before, with unexpected animations, terribly delicious surprises and an “infernal” atmosphere. The moon will bring ghosts, Disney villains and other creatures to the fore. After enjoying the attractions you will be able to immerse yourself in the magical Disney Dreams show! Special for Halloween.
3)Legoland (Madrid, Spain)
From 6 October to 3 November, enjoy a cosy day in LEGOLAND®, when we open the doors for the LEGOLAND® Halloween.
When darkness falls, and the fine details are given extra ambience from the many lights in the park. Follow the Brick or Treat route and visit the creepy creatures in their houses. Try out several of the park’s rides in the dark, get scared witless in Ghost – The Haunted House, and complete the evening with the most amazing Halloween fireworks when we stay open late.
4)Hogwarts (Scotland, United Kingdom)
For lovers of the ‘Potterverse’, Halloween is about to get even more magical. The Making of Harry Potter is bringing back a spooktastic feature in the run-up to the creepiest night of the year – Hogwarts After Dark.
Having launched in 2018, the ingenious event sees fans spending the Halloween period amongst sets from the beloved films, each of which has been given a ghoulish makeover to bring Harry Potter’s darker elements to the fore. After being guided into the Great Hall, which will be decorated with floating pumpkins, guests will be seated to enjoy a spread of festive red apples, pumpkin treats and cauldrons of lollipops. The evening will continue with many other eerie happenings, including following spiders into the lantern-lit Forbidden Forest to meet magical creatures, duelling with a team of sinister Death Eaters (dark wizards who seek to destroy non-magical folk), and exploring Diagon Alley after dark.
If you’re keen to spend your Halloween at Hogwarts, the event will be taking place on Friday 25 October, Saturday 26 October and Sunday 27 October from 7.30pm.
5)Horrorland (Barcelona, Spain)
From 4 October to 16 November 2019, the countdown has begun and Horrorland has already begun to reveal details.
