Halloween Haunted House at Crocworld Conservation Centre

Sign-it @ Syms presents the second annual Halloween celebration at Crocworld Conservation Centre on Saturday, 28th October, between 16h00 and 21h30. Located just outside Scottburgh, it will only be the second time in Crocworld’s thirty-two year history, that it will be open after normal working hours.

“This year’s celebration promises to be bigger and better than last year, with ‘The Haunted House’ being the theme of the event,” said Martin Rodrigues, the Crocworld Conservation Centre manager.

Rodrigues highlighted, “This is a family celebration, which will cater for all ages. A special treat for all our Halloween visitors will be the hourly, guided night tours starting at 18h30, where they will have the opportunity to observe the behaviour of the Centre’s nocturnal reptiles and birds. Special crocodile feedings will take place during these tours.”  He encouraged visitors to bring along a torch so that they can easily spot the Centre’s residents.

Doors to the haunted house will open from 18h00. There will be a designated scare zone, for thrill-seekers wanting a scary adrenalin rush.

Children under the age of twelve can bring a container as they will be allowed to go trick-or-treating at the various candy stations throughout the Centre, between 16h00 and 18h00.

Visitors will be able to tantalise their taste-buds with a wide variety of delicious snacks and meals available at the food court whilst being treated to live entertainment. Indie folk duo The North And South will boast their multi-instrumental and singing talents to guests. Durban-based musician, Jade Aucamp will also be performing during the party.

For those who dare to scare, there will be a best-dressed photo competition, also including prizes for runners-up, in three categories:  children (0-12 years), teens (13-18 years) and adults. Entrants need to take a picture at the photo booth at a fee of just R30.

Prizes valued at over R2000, include individual annual memberships and annual family memberships to Crocworld Conservation Centre, as well as two Discover Scuba Diving Experiences sponsored by Crystal Divers South Africa.

Rodrigues expressed his gratitude to all sponsors for the Halloween celebration, including Sign-it @ Syms, Food Lovers Market Scottburgh Mall, Crystal Divers South Africa, The Halloween Store and Scalliwags Costume Hire.

Tickets must be purchased at the Centre’s reception on the night of the event. Ticket prices for adults are R55 each and R40 for children, 12 years or younger.
