Hallowe'en at Brimham Rocks
Each year near the end of October spooky spirits descend upon Brimham. In 2016 on 27 and 28 October visitors brave enough to venture through the rocks are faced with a series of ghoulish challenges. From crawling through the Tunnel of Terror and peering into a coffin to spinning the Wheel of Misfortune and tiptoeing through a spider’s web. Families have to complete each task to move on.
If you survive all the challenges you then find yourself entering the Brimham Rocks School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Under the expert tutelage of Professors Esmeralda and Griselda you will create your own magic wand, learn to cast a spell to conjure up your prize.
" The trick to a good conjuring spell is making sure you’ve got the right ingredients. Don’t worry, all ingredients are provided, from grandad’s toenail clippings and giants’ bogies to pixie poo and skunks’ kisses"
Some visitors really get into the spirit of things and come dressed up as their favourite Hallowe’en characters such as Casper the Ghost and the walking dead. Many staff and volunteers begin planning their costumes in advance of this haunted happening. It’s the highlight of our event calendar.
