For the first time the horror spectacle took place on 10 days and was promptly rewarded with a new visitor record. Over 62,000 Halloween fans stormed the Familypark. Under the motto of this year's "Festival of the Vampires", a unique lighting concept and two professional shows by the SHAD Performance Show team were once again performed. This time in a circus tent, which offered space for about 700 people. Our popular stilt walkers and numerous extras provided entertainment in the park. Popular photo locations for the guests were, as always, the many scary and funny scenes with skeletons, pumpkins, spiders and other decorations.
Blood donation with the Red Cross
Also very successful is the balance of the first blood donation campaign in Familypark, which took place on 31.10. The whole day blood was drawn from the Austrian Red Cross backup vampires, giving a total of 37.2 liters from 80 people. Due to the success and the enormous willingness to donate, the blood donation campaign for next year is already planned.
Of course, an extraordinary event also requires extraordinary culinary delights. It attracted courts such as witch broth (pumpkin goulash), count Dragulasch (moor ox goulash) or spider nests (Käsespätzle).
Thanks to the record number of visitors, it was also possible to set new records in the gastronomy: for example, around 2100 portions of the witch broth, more than 12,000 portions of French fries (3 tons) were sold and over 10,000 Häferl punch of all sorts drunk. Also popular were small treats such as chestnuts, of which 400 kg were roasted, and 1,400 bars of cotton candy.
