Magic Steps Circuit (daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.) - In a Halloween-themed setting, impress your family by showing them how light you are on your feet as you skilfully make your way along a circuit that offers up numerous surprises. Children will be delighted by an array of facilities such as tunnels and games of balance and skills.

It's all about squash - Acorn squash, butternut squash, gourds, pumpkins, pattypan squash, winter squash—the gourd or squash family (Cucurbitaceae) includes a huge number of varieties of different colours and shapes, some funny and some just plain weird. These plants have to go through a long complicated process before they can produce fruit. Come and see squash pass through these stages and grow in front of your eyes!

Virtual Pumpkin-decorating Contest - It’s time to let your imagination go wild and decorate your pumpkin or any other member of the amazing squash family. Take inspiration from its shape, colour or texture.
