Walygator Park


From the 15th of October to the 6th of November 2022 - Night-times: 22nd and 31st of October 2022

A double dose of adrenaline this autumn!

Even though the park’s star attractions will, as always, get your heart pounding, there are also monsters with their zombie friends of all kinds to be reckoned with. Unleashed in the enclosure, these repulsive creatures relentlessly use their astonishing ability to strike fear into the hearts of those around them*.

You’ll have to be on your guard to escape their clutches, but families can still enjoy the stunning orange-coloured surroundings, specially made just for the occasion. Halloween at Waly is also two exceptional nights, when the whole sky could burst into light.

As the icing on the pumpkin pie, the attractions stay open in the evening. Well, that’s the Walloween effect!

*these roaming shows are suitable for children

Advance booking required

What if the legend of Zeppi was actually true?

A long time ago, on All Saints’ Day 1958, a miner from Moselle ventured alone into a tunnel in the Wendel mine at a depth of 850 metres.

With a candle lamp, he caused a spectacular firedamp explosion and was never seen again. Many years later, rumour has it that Zeppi actually went hunting for a terrifying creature and sacrificed himself to save his people.

As the last shaft of the Wendel mine is about to close, Zeppi’s son, Nicolas, contacts you. You are his last hope to find out what really happened. Follow in the footsteps of this legendary story in the heart of the mine’s mysterious underground passages. Does the creature from 850 below really exist?

This investigation is now in your hands. An extraordinary treasure hunt in a unique setting, to be solved with the whole family.
