Australia’s biggest theme park has been webbed with mystical and magical attractions for the launch of its inaugural Happy Halloween spectacular, and it’s started off with a bang! 

For the first time ever, the theme park has concocted ‘Happy Halloween’, a series of night-time events offering families new and exciting adventures and delivering a frightful amount of fun – not fear.

“Within the theme park industry on the Gold Coast, the family sector is a really untouched market for Halloween,” Greg Yong, Dreamworld Chief Operating Officer said. “We saw this as an opportunity to give our locals and visiting guests a new experience that isn’t frightful. As a family theme park, with rides and attractions suited to all ages, this just made sense and is the perfect fit for our audience.”

Families will join their favourite characters Kenny and Belinda and enjoy loads of entertainment, with a trick-or-treating adventure taking little explorers throughout the park on the hunt for candy!

It would be fearful to miss the costume competition – which offers a booty of prizes to be won – or the fun hay maze for the kids, and there will be plenty of spook-tacular live entertainment, Halloween inspired treats, rides at night and much more.

Daring guests can take on Australia’s biggest inflatable obstacle course, The Monster, to inflate the fun even more. 

What’s more, some hocus-pocus has been cast upon all Annual Passholders, with free entry to their first Happy Halloween night as part of their Annual Pass.

“We want to recognise and show appreciation to our valued, loyal Dreamworld Passholders who are part of the Dreamworld family with ongoing added bonuses,” Greg said. “For the general public, guests can purchase four hours of unlimited fun for just $29 a ticket.”

Three events have already sold-out and tickets for this Friday October 18, are selling fast. Plus, due to popular demand, Dreamworld have added one more night to the mix, that being Friday October 25.

The witches are riding, and pumpkins can be seen, as it’s nearing Halloween. Book now so you don’t miss out on the fam-tastic fun.
