Something strange is GOING ON in Rumpus Mansion...

The ghosts and ghouls of Rumpus Mansion LIVE are hosting a brand-new story this year! Take an interactive tour around the residence to meet a whole host of new characters. Find out what mystery has Franklin and Lady Edwina stumped every day from 11am-3pm!

Create a slimy new buddy or spellbinding potion in the NEW Rumpus Laboratory!

For the first time in the history of Blackgang Chine, Rumpus Mansion will be opening its secret laboratory…  

Delve into the world of wonky science in these BRAND-NEW workshops to create magical potions and mysterious slime. Make sure you keep a keen ear on the mad scientists Luna and Luther Leviathan, as they instruct you to the right ingredients to make your very own magical potion or to bring to life your very own gloopy slime buddy.  

Will you make a potion that turns people into frogs, or will you choose to create your very own squishy slime friend?*

*Additional charges apply for this experience
