Instead of the traditional spooky faces, some of the park's resident animals have found themselves carved in pumpkin fame - and they're getting a taste for it too!

Janine Calzini, from Adventure Valley, said: “We have carved pumpkins in the shape of; a sheep, rabbit, donkey, goat, horse, chipmunk, llamas and more.

"They will be used to help decorate the site for our two Halloween after dusk party nights on October 30 and 31. There will be lots of ghoulish entertainment on those nights including the fabulous UV puppet show in the theatre, and our new Spooky Castle experience.

“Our animals have also been getting into the Halloween spirit. Our pygmy goats have been exploring the pumpkin pile, and the chipmunks just love to scamper in and out of the mouth and eye holes in their pumpkin.”
