Easter Trail Hunt

More school holidays are looming…

The Easter holidays are a great opportunity for families to spend more time with each other. Why not bring the whole family and get down and dirty with us at The Crocky Trail.



What have we got in store for you?

The Crocky Trail is running an Easter Trail Hunt with a difference on Good Friday, Saturday and Easter Sunday.

The trail hunt is only £2 to enter and all you have to do is find our hidden boards around the trail, work out the clue and fill in the form. Simple! Every correct form returned to the cafe wins an Easter egg, or an ice cream/slush if we run out of eggs!

But it gets even better…. EVERY DAY one lucky winner will be chosen at random to win FREE ACCESS FOR A YEAR. Yes that’s right a whole year until next Easter! Imagine all the fun you could be having for free all over the summer holidays.

  • Forms can be bought from the gate or cafe.
  • You can have as many entries as you like.
  • Don’t forget your name and email address on the form.

Book your tickets now here!

What To Do With A Field Of Leftover Pumpkins?


Make some more soup of course, and donate it to Soup Kitchens:

Sisters of Seel St, Liverpool and St Annes Church, ‘City of Sanctuary’ Soup Kitchen.

Thanks to Chris for delivering around 10 litres to each.



of course if it wasn’t for the lovely Tracy and Andrew at Crocky Bites, there wouldn’t have been any pumpkin soup for Chris to take
So thanks Tracy and Andrew

Come And Pick Your Own Pumpkin

Halloween Pumpkin Picking Crocky Trail Cheshire

Have you picked your pumpkin yet?

Here at The Crocky Trail you can come down and pick your own pumpkin from our MASSIVE pumpkin field!

Turn up anytime during the day in advance of Halloween and follow the signs to the pumpkin field. If you want to know what they taste like then why not spend a few hours at The Crocky Trail and try Crocky Bites, where you can sample our home made soup! Yummy!!

They are only £3, and there’s loads of ideas on our Facebook page on how to dress them up for Halloween.



The Crocky Horror Show 2016

horror-main-imageWelcome to our new Crocky Horror Event for 2016. We’ve pulled out all the stops to ensure this is our scariest and most fun ever Halloween event!

The full trail is closed this year. Instead we have a shortened, 600 yard creepy crawl through the woodland part of the the trail, packed with zombies and monsters for you to enjoy! You are free to enjoy this walk before or after surviving the Catacombs, and of course all the usual rides and attractions are open. Plus regular shows by Ken and his Wall of Death bikes.

In addition to the Crocky Dungeon this year we have the catacombs. It’s around four times bigger than the dungeon. What is it? Well, imagine the usual walk through a haunted house, dark, claustrophobic, creaky and creepy. Add to that Live Actors dressed as ghouls, skeletons, zombies, and monsters, who’s sole purpose is to creep up on you, and, err… you get the idea. It’s brand new for 2016 and still evolving, so we can’t say much more, but you get the idea I’m sure. Or nightmare!

Thank You!

We just wanted to take the time to thank all of our visitors who leave us a review. It is so helpful to us to hear your feedback!

Please keep on letting us know your thoughts and how your day with us has gone. We do really appreciate it 🙂




That’s right. From Wednesday 24th August, through the bank holiday including Monday 29th, if you make your way to Chester train station look out for our mini-bus, and we will bring you to Crocky Trail for free!

To take advantage of this service, you must book your tickets online and tick the time you want to get on the bus and come back (2 options). If you don’t book online, you can’t get on it, as we need to know numbers 🙂

Look for a white minibus, with Crocky Trail logo (probably on door), outside The Queen Hotel just opposite the station.

Look forward to seeing you here. Click the bus below.
