On the eve of Halloween, or All Saints’ Day, from 27 to 31 October, Ventspils Adventure Park will become one of the scariest places in Latvia every night as darkness falls, from 19.00 until midnight.
Only during this time, Ventspils will host special Halloween guests – professional scarecrows of humans and other living creatures, who have come from the night terror tracks at Dzērve School, Vecpils Bog Slope, Kliģi Lake area and Kavene Wolf forests.
The night terror track in the Adventure Park Forest will be 760 metres long and will scare you for at least 12 minutes until someone rescues you. The 10 EUR entry fee will give you the chance to be terrified, while arriving early will guarantee less queuing.
There will also be a spooky toboggan track and a creepy camera hill. The spooky toboggan track will offer a breathtaking 580-metre ride with several 360° turns. The ride is free for children aged 3 to 7 years, but only when accompanied by an adult who must buy a ticket. Adults pay EUR 5 per ride, while young people aged 8-17 pay EUR 3 per ride.
Both adults and children together with their parents can go on the camera track. Five rides will cost 3.50 EUR. Children under 7 years of age can only use the attraction accompanied by an adult.
During the horrors, the Adventure Park will have an outdoor cafe with horribly tasty blood sausage and other scary treats. The horrors are organised in cooperation with the agency SIA “Ūdensputni”. Contact 29126694.
If there is a terrible wind faster than 18m/s or if the ground is covered with a terrible humidity, it will not be possible to ride with the toboggan or cameras. More information available during Adventure Park opening hours by phone 28611333.
Warm up for the scary evenings early, as the Ventspils Toboggan Track is open all year round – in October the Ventspils Toboggan Track is open from 15.00 to 20.00 on weekdays, and from 11.00 to 20.00 on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.
Let’s indulge in Halloween – an early Celtic harvest festival that has intertwined with popular culture for thousands of years and turned into a spooky masquerade, leaving mostly no one indifferent!
