York’s SHOCKolate Story!

This October half-term, York’s SHOCKolate Story will be celebrating the scariest time of year with a host of frightening features and events.

The attraction will be completely decked out for Halloween.  Guests will discover the secrets behind confectionery’s sometimes poisonous past, and how some beloved brands were connected to bloodcurdling events from years ago.

Lolly making will have a sinister twist, as guests craft their creations using our spooky chocolate, complete with some revolting toppings. Anybody feeling lucky can have a go on The Wheel of Misfortune. Where will it land? Will it be a delicious treat, or a disgusting trick?

Downstairs in the shop and cafe, there will be plenty of Halloween and Autumn inspired confectionery for our guests to enjoy, freshly make by our resident mad scientists (aka Chocolatiers).

There’s also the chance to join our terrifyingly fun trick or treat walking tour.
