Be scared to death at Life


Grab your (zombie) squad and experience all the treats and tricks that Life has to offer, including organ dissection demonstrations, a forensic science investigation and a dinosaur-themed house of horrors.

Visitors to our Halloween Late will discover that our normally family-friendly dinosaurs are out of control – and hungry. Join us for an American-style immersive Halloween experience in our fog-filled Dino Jaws exhibition, scattered with severed limbs. There will be a few shocks in store as you run the gauntlet – are you brave enough?

The Experiment Zone is open for a murder investigation and a chance to carry out forensic science experiments to identify the killer. 

For those allured by anatomy, there’ll be live demonstrations of animal organ dissection, with Life’s expert Science Explainers guiding onlookers through the structure of the organs. Visitors will also be able to get hands-on with the body parts and try out some dissection for themselves. 

Brave souls who are looking for even more thrills and chills can climb aboard the 4D Motion Ride for the animation Dracula 4D.

Fancy dress is strongly encouraged, and a professional special effects make-up artist will be on hand to give demonstrations and add some gory finishing touches.

There’ll be a selection of delicious food available to buy on the night to help stave off those monster munchies, or you can pre-order your meal along with your ticket. If pre-ordering your food, please let us know if you would like the vegetarian option in the Additional Requirements box when booking your tickets. Alcoholic and soft drinks will also be available to purchase on the night.
