Marsh Monster
See what awaits you when darkness takes over the Marsh. Wye Marsh will be overrun with ghouls, ghosts and goblins during the annual Marsh Monster Halloween event. Prepare yourself for a naturally frightening night with zombie walks, scavenger hunts, a haunted house with games and crafts, and the always spooky Marsh Monster mystery tours. The Marsh Monster Mystery tour takes visitors into the dark depths of the forests to explore and help a Wye Marsh naturalist solve the mystery that is plaguing the Marsh. Tours leave every 15 minutes. Visitors can then choose ... if they dare ... to return to the safety of the centre through the zombie infested woodland trail. Once inside, visitors can take their chances in the haunted carnival. There will be games and crafts with prizes including a family membership to Wye Marsh. Visitors are encouraged to come in costume and bring a flash light.

Event Time: 6pm - 9pm
Admission: $5.00

Happy Halloween!
