Join our Freak Week!

We’re gearing up for a fang-tastic half term at DZG, which promises to be frighteningly good fun for all the family!

DZG Freak Week Halloween

Join us for Freak Week and get discounted group admission for up to four people by bringing a carved pumpkin for our Hallowe’en pumpkin patch, with an animal adoption of your choice up for grabs for the best design.

Running from Saturday, October 22 – 30, visitors will be able to follow our mystery trail around the 40-acre site and receive a treat at the end.

There’ll be eerie arts and crafts in the spooky farm barn and the chance to design your own pumpkin poster in the Queen Mary Restaurant.

And come face-to-face with creepy critters in our Ghoulish Go Wild! Show running daily at 11.30am and 2.15pm.

There’s also the chance to get close to some of the rarest and scariest animals in the world with our extended talk and feed programme and hear about the people who once graced the cobbles of the 11th century Dudley Castle with led ghost walks around the grounds.

And we’ll be continuing to raise money for our snow leopard enclosure extension appeal by running a daily raffle for the opportunity to feed pumpkin to some of our animals.

Marketing Manager, Andrea Hales, said: “There’s lots going on at DZG this half term and we hope you’ll join us if you dare!

“Our spooktacular week concludes after hours with our two adult-only paranormal evenings and our popular Hocus Pocus family events, so don’t miss out!”
