‘Spooktacular’ Pumpkin Train Adventure

Join the Rathwood Halloween Pumpkin Train this Halloween for a spooktacular adventure in Carlow. On this adventure you will be greeted by friendly creatures, Winnie the Witch and many other spooky characters. Hop on the train if you dare to enter the enchanted woods where mysterious creatures live…

The magical land of Zo is being terrorised by the Wicked Witch of the West. Dorothy and her friends need your help to find the Wizard of Zo and get rid of the Wicked Witch once and for all!

On this ghoulishly, scary and very exciting adventure you will meet friends of Dorothy for fun, frolics and surprises along the way that you would never expect…

If you are brave enough to enter the pumpkin patch in the enchanted woods you can pick your favourite pumpkin and with the help of the friendly witches carve your favourite picture onto it. When your pumpkin is complete, you can take it home!

After your adventure each child will receive free hot chocolate in the family restaurant to warm you up and relax after the spooky adventure.
