Halloween in Rimini's theme parks

Published on: 17 October 2023

For the All Saints' Day weekend, the theme parks of the Riviera are filled with pumpkins, bats, witches and cute monsters and become the stage for days of fun with scary decorations and sets, animations and chilling shows.

Fiabilandia, the park designed for children, but not only, remains open until 5 November. The park opens its doors on weekends in October, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with Halloween-themed decorations and live shows, entertainment, and make-up artists for children. In addition, until 29 October, children (from 90 cm. up to 130 cm. tall) visiting the Park in Halloween-themed costumes will receive a € 5 discount on the entrance fee (€ 13 instead of € 18). From 31 October to 5 November, the Park will be open daily with many surprises to celebrate Halloween amidst mysterious and spooky displays. On Tuesday 31 October, the Park remains open until 10 pm for the highlight of the festivities with live shows, such as the Fiaby Circus and 'Once Upon a Time in Tijuana', entertainment and children's make-up, and the scariest costume contest parade with prizes for all children taking part.

From 28 October to 2 November, Italia in Miniatura becomes the enchanted city of Halloween, with spooky characters, colossal monsters from Italian tradition and chilling displays. The Park never closes this year, in fact, it remains open on Saturdays and Sundays throughout October, while in November it can be visited on Sundays only. In particular, on the days of Magic Halloween, 29 and 31 October, 1 and 2 November, there will be street performers, wacky clowns, giant soap bubble charmers and tamers, jugglers, stilt walkers, children's make-up artists and many shows in Piazza Italia. Almost all the attractions of Italia in Miniatura will be in operation: Monorail, Venice, Old Sawmill, Panoramic Tower, Interactive Driving School, Pappamondo, Esperimenta, Castel Sismondo, Pinocchio and Play Mart, included in the ticket, while AreAvventura and Cinemagia7D are accessible separately. Open all day: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Info and tickets online at  www.italiainminiatura.com

The same opening hours also apply to the Cattolica Aquarium, where you can meet sharks, penguins and more than 3,000 animals from 400 different species. For Halloween, the Aquarium becomes the witches' sanctuary, where everyone will be invited to tests of courage, such as crossing giant shark jaws. The gates to the huge aquatic world open in the indoor routes, where you can find strange characters such as fantasy fish, gigantic crabs, octopuses and zombimedusa. At the entrance to the Purple Trail, there is also a freak show, the 'Giant Insects XXL Edition', resin reproductions of insects enlarged up to 200 times. Finally, you can take a trip back in time to the age of the dinosaurs, approaching the fearsome T-Rex for the last real test of courage to be faced. To round off the day, you can take part in feeding sessions with penguins, otters, stingrays and bull sharks. Info: www.acquariodicattolica.it
