Councillor Ann Crimmings, Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Leisure said:

A Welsh Coal Mining Experience at Rhondda Heritage Park continues to incredible family-friendly events all year round. The events season started in Easter with Easter Egg-stravaganza then continued with A Summer of Fun and before we know it, Santa’s Toy Mine will be opening its doors to residents and visitors to our County Borough.  Spooktacular is a fang-tastic event and the addition of a pumpkin patch adds to an event which has established itself as a family favourite!  A trip in the lift down to the pit bottom has always been a special part of the tour at this family venue, and Spooktacular visitors will be able to descend as many times as they like during their visit.  Combined with the arts and crafts and Halloween Hunt, it promises to be a great Halloween event.

Entry to Halloween Spooktacular is £9 for participating children £3 for adults.  Tickets are on sale now and available here.

Halloween Spooktacular at A Welsh Coal Mining Experience is sponsored by Nathaniel Cars, who have been keeping the residents of Rhondda Cynon Taf and beyond on the road for more than 35 years, thanks to their friendly teams in Cardiff, Bridgend and Cwmbran.
