We always enjoy visiting Drusillas Park as a family – so I had their Halloween ‘Shriek Week’ (which is taking place this week, until Sunday 28th) in my diary for a while. But alas, like a lot of working mums, I just couldn’t make it work as I was too busy with work – so my parents very kindly offered to take the boys today.
They had such a brilliant day, but I am told that the highlights of the day were…
1) The interactive ‘Shriek Week’ areas, which included the Maze (with its very own spooky mummy’s roaming around!) and the Witch’s House. Once they’d been suitably scared in the maze, they went up to the platform and watched from the platform and spent a long time watching other children running away!
2) The spooky decorations all around the park – pumpkins, cobwebs, skeletons, and bats! My parents said they had made a real effort – and a lot of children had come in fancy dress to really get into the spirit.
3) The rides! Drusillas is the closest my children have got to a real theme park – and it’s always one of their highlights of their visit. The Flying Cheetahs, the Hippopotobus, the Safari Express Train – and all the rides in Hello Kitty Land.
4) Visiting the animals – always part of our day when we go to Drusillas and extra special in Shriek Week! The boys loved how the mouse house had been transformed for Halloween and my Dad was impressed by how the animals experts bought the theme into a talk about blood-sucking bats!
Drusillas is always fun to visit – and Shriek Week will be taking place at the park until Sunday. For more information, head to https://www.drusillas.co.uk/halloween-activities-in-east-sussex

Thank you to Drusillas for providing tickets for my parents and boys to visit today,so that I could write this review. Thanks Mum and Dad for taking the boys and for taking the photos!
