FAMILIES are being invited to Blair Drummond Safari Park for the return of its Halloween event which will kick off later this month.

The popular attraction is getting into the spooky spirit with the opening of its Halloween-inspired Tomb as part of the Park's annual HalloWild event.

The second event of its kind celebrating Halloween at the Safari Park, the main attraction of this year's HalloWild is The Tomb.

A first for Scotland, The Tomb comprises a brand new haunted walk-through complete with creepy Mummies and 3D special effects for all to enjoy.

While scary for some, the Halloween extravaganza is perfect for families, as there will also be an array of activities including magic shows, slime making, a pumpkin patch for pumpkin carving in the safari spook tent, as well as an outdoor trick-or-treat trail for youngsters to enjoy.

Liz Gunn, Blair Drummond Safari Park marketing manager, said: "At Blair Drummond, we love nothing more than creating experiences for family and friends to enjoy and Halloween is the perfect excuse.

"It's a great time of year to visit the Safari Park to see the animals, and families and Halloween enthusiasts alike will love to see what's on offer. It won't disappoint."

The price of a HalloWild ticket includes full admission to the Safari Park and all of its attractions, as well as The Tomb, the safari spook tent and the trick-or-treat trail.

Blair Drummond Safari Park's HalloWild runs from October 12-27 and tickets are available online.
