Expect the unexpected…

Our Trail of Terror is packed full of scares at every turn, from rustling bushes, to masked monsters and screaming scarers! Our staff are at hand to make your evening as frightening as possible, all put together by our Colchester Zoo in-house team – Zoo team by day and scarers by night!

There are several Safe Zones located along the route which will allow you the chance to purchase food and drink without the fear of being frightened!

At the end of the trail the fun doesn’t stop there! Why not reflect on the horrors enjoyed with your friends and enjoy the live entertainment, food and drink until close.

THIS EVENT IS NOT FOR SCAREDY-CATS!

Tickets: Must be pre-booked online in advance for a specific time of arrival and are non-refundable, do bear this in mind when deciding if this event is suitable for everyone in your group. Arrival slots are staggered throughout the evening with a limited capacity to allow our staff to reset the scares!
