Pioneering UK holiday resort operator Away Resorts is gearing up for a half-term of Halloween hijinks this October with ghost ships, zombie pirates and other spooky goings-on at its holiday resort on the Isle of Wight.
Whitecliff Bay Holiday Park has a packed programme of Halloween-inspired activities this half-term (20-29 October), including: spooky nature rangers; haunted house making; cursed treasure and pirate games; horrifying hoverboards; the creepy crawly show; zombie family cheerleading; spooktacular archery, ghost ship raft-building, night-time zombie laser tag, trick or treat archery and pumpkin carving.
When the kids aren’t engaged in Halloween-inspired antics with the Whitecliff Bay entertainment team, they can make the most of the park’s facilities, which include: an indoor heated pool with flume, bubble pool and toddler pool; sports lounge with large TV; the Nab Bar and Restaurant, which offers a great choice of food served all day; indoor soft playground; children’s outdoor adventure playgrounds; and mini golf.
And the real jewel in Whitecliff Bay’s crown is its very own secluded beach – the perfect location for sunny, autumn walks and a bit of rock pooling.
On the entertainment front, there will be movies for all of the family, including Paranorman (22 October), Hotel Transylvania (25 October) and Guardians of the Galaxy II (28 October). And in the evening in the Culver Club, the entertainment starts early for the children with Bear in the Woods on stage, followed by West End-style shows by the resort’s entertainment team, which, over half-term, will all have a Halloween theme.
Expect to hear Thriller, Ghostbusters and the Monster Mash on more than one occasion over October half-term.
Prices lead in at £528 (a saving of £132) for seven nights in The Bembridge from 20 October. The Bembridge is a stylish, modern chalet that sleeps four.
