The Enchantment of Chester Zoo

Added to planner Add to planner

The sorcerer is back and has cast a spell to send the zoo to sleep….
The wise old owls have uncovered his dastardly plot…..
We need your help to break the spell. 

Back for its second year and better than ever, The Enchantment of Chester Zoo is full of adventure, acrobatics, music and discovery. And you’ll learn lots about some of your favourite animals along the way. It’s a perfect half term treat with a sprinkle Halloween sorcery. 

Seek out the moths, sloths, giraffes and orangutans and gather clues from the incredible characters that you meet there.  Then head to Owl HQ and share everything you’ve learned.
