The Trail of Terror is a pre-bookable event with a maximum capacity each evening. Arrivals will be staggered along the trail offering you screams of laughter as you won’t know what is lurking around the corner on The Trail of Terror!

Colchester Zoo will close at 5.00pm to day visitors as usual, before opening at 6.30pm on selected evenings, leaving the zoo behind as The Trail of Terror comes to life!

The Trail of Terror begins as soon as you step foot in the door, from rustling bushes, to masked monsters and screaming scarers, they could get you anytime and anywhere…

We do have a limited number of Safe Zones during the trail which are located alongside food outlets offering hot food, snacks and drinks that you can enjoy without fear of being scared!

We will also have food and music for you to enjoy at the end of the trail PLUS a themed photo point so you can purchase a souvenir of your evening.

Due to the nature of this event, we do not recommend this for anyone under the age of 12yrs however this is at guardians’ discretion. We will not admit anyone under the age of 5yrs. Please also be aware that due to the unpredictable nature of the trail, this event may not be suitable for some people with sensory or other specific needs.
