Five Things to do in Great Yarmouth this Halloween Half Term

Paid Collaboration with Visit Great Yarmouth

Half term has arrived which means a whole week of keeping the children entertained.  Great Yarmouth has so much to do for the whole family and some spooky specials this week, so here are five of our favourite family Halloween activities this half term.

Halloween Spooktacular at the Hippodrome Circus

The Halloween Spooktacular is a circus meets pantomime meets Halloween and it was a hit for our whole family.  There was humour to make the adults smile, silliness that had the kids laughing out loud and incredible acrobatics as well as a Halloween dance party at the end that had everyone on their feet.  Jack Jay and Johnny Mac were hilarious and I am still trying to work out how one of the performers bent her body the way she did!  On twice a day until Halloween this is a show you don't want to miss.

Fire on the Water

Located on Great Yarmouth main sands is Fire on the Water, a mixture of fire installations, sculptures and displays as well as a designated crafting tent.  Come dressed for the cold and feel free to bring a chair as there are four different fire shows on each hour.  We loved wandering amongst the lit up song lyrics, watching the giant christingle and listening to the music.  At the art tent, we could decorate CDs and attach candles before letting them float.  There are tents to grab food and drink and plenty of space to move around (as well as disabled/buggy friendly pathways.  It's only around for a week so book your tickets now!

The Lost World Adventure Golf

If the weather is a bit nicer and you want something outdoors this half term, then check out The Lost World adventure golf in Hemsby.  With a dinosaur theme it is fun for everyone, and there is a bonus Halloween challenge as you go round that keeps the children entertained (and a prize at the end if they complete it).  If you visit on Friday 28th then head to The Lacon Arms afterwards for their family Halloween party.

Fairground Frights

Right on Great Yarmouth seafront is The Pleasure Beach (read our review of it here), a theme park with fun for all ages.  This Halloween they are running 5 nights of Fairground Frights - unlimited rides and unlimited thrills, still for only £15 per person.  Best suited for over 10s, there is an end of season firework display on the 30th too. This is bound to be a half term highlight for older children and a great reason to come to the seafront.

Merrivale Model Village

Not only is there now a pumpkin patch in Merrivale model village and a Halloween theme, it is open longer during the Halloween half term so you can see the model village lit up.  We loved our visit in the summer (my review is here) and the price of entry includes being able to come back throughout the day so make sure if you visit in the morning that you come back to see the lights at 6pm. The fairground is our favourite part of the village and you exit via a penny arcade so bring some cash as you will definitely want to play.

It is a great time of year to visit this seaside town with something for all the family!
