The Cryptid Safari Halloween trail

Halloween trail

Head down Miss Alice’s Drive and encounter magical beasts from myths and fairy tales along the way in this fantastical safari experience. Can you spot all of the creatures that live in the woods?

If you’re really lucky you might even come across the Safari Rangers, who are out and about tending to the beasts and keeping those pesky fairies at bay.

Complete the trail and claim your souvenir at the end!

Sat 23 – Sun 31 Oct 2021, £3.50 per trail (we recommend one trail per child). The trail begins at the Woodland Takeaway and runs from 10am-5pm, last trail entry is 4pm.

Weekdays SOLD OUT. Limited availability on weekend dates, advance booking recommended.

Twilight Cryptid Safari trail

Wed 27 – Sat 30 October 2021, 6pm, 7pm & 8pm entry times.

As darkness falls over Waddesdon, venture on a safari into the woods and discover beasts rarely seen in this world.

From the smallest imps to the mighty dragon, trolls climbing trees and fae folk flying up high, it’s time to get your map out and explorer’s hat on to spot them all. On your adventure, Safari Rangers will be there to answer questions and if you’re very lucky, you may even get a close encounter with one of the fantastical creatures themselves.

The performance continues after the trail in the Stables courtyard.

There will be catering from Carlito’s Coffee and Boarstall Meats available to purchase from the Stables from 6pm-9.30pm.

The safari is suitable for children 6 years and above. We would suggest that the experience might not be suitable for dogs as the trail features moving and sudden lights and sounds.

The Cryptid Safari is performed by Strange-Twig Theatre Company, a nationally touring theatre company specialising in outdoor and street theatre, clowning, storytelling and stage productions.

£15 Adult, £10 Child (tickets include shuttle bus from the car park). The trail starts from the Woodland Takeaway.
