The Haunted Forest this Halloween at Marlay Park
Families flock to Marlay Park in their Halloween costumes every year for a spooky walk through the haunted forest with ghosts and ghouls and frightful sights! The forest at Marlay Park comes alive in the night for one evening only with freaky fog, ghastly spiders and skeletons, creepy eyeballs and pumpkins, the spine chilling boat house preachers and menacing witches and demons. Festoon lighting, sound effects and smoke makes the adventure all the more exciting but this year, there will be no fireworks so the haunted forest can stay open until 9pm.
The haunted woods are not for the faint hearted with all the big spooky characters, scary noises and eerie fog! The walk is approx 1.5km long as is on a path suitable for buggies/wheelchairs. Halloween costumes are recommended but this is an outdoor event so warm clothing is recommended.
