Next stop on the tour of 2019 Halloween events was a visit to Chessington's family-friendly Howl'o'ween with Margaret and Katie.
Together with the return of the magnificent Creepy Caves Unearthed, the park introduced Spyders, a new family friendly scare maze to replace Curse of the Lost Tomb.
A pumpkin topped welcome to Chessington's Howl'o'ween event
Land of the Tiger has had some Halloween additions
We began the day on Tiger Rock
Swiftly followed by a spin dry on Kobra!
A spin on Toadie's Crazy Cars before the log flume is added next year
Margaret and Katie were in the driving seat
Hey There, Toadie!
We joined the queue for Spyders which opened at midday
This lady was very keen to show everybody her big spider
Spyders was very enjoyable, with a great cast of characters who interacted with the group really well
Black Buccaneer isn't looking very healthy at the moment
As usual, Burnt Stub Mansion has been attacked by a giant spider
We had a tasty lunch in the hotel
After a rest, we were back in the park to take on the terrifying and definitely not kid-friendly Creepy Caves Unearthed
The maze is free this year which meant the queue was long, but the great run through we had with actors jumping out and interacting from every corner made the wait well worth it
This giant scarecrow has taken up residence at Adventure Point
Rameses Revenge is bowing out at the end of the season ... thanks for all the face-fulls of water old friend
A ride on Rattlesnake under stormy skies
Katie's 100% reliable weather app assured us it wasn't going to rain ...
... which didn't really explain all the water falling from the sky
Dragon's Fury had quite a queue, but we had some time to kill before it got dark, and it's always worth a bit of a wait
We had a great ride as the sky turned dark
More special Halloween theming
Katie bought a blurry light up thing
If there's no such thing as a Gruffalo, then what the hell is that?!!
It was time for one of our annual Halloween traditions
Fastrack Vampire in the dark!
Despite being told I smelt by almost every character, it was a magical way to end the day
Goodnight from Chessington
