The Milky Way has build a special Easter grotto where you can meet the Easter Bunny over the holidays.

For the first time ever, visitors to this award-winning theme park can enter a specially-crafted Easter Grotto and meet the Easter Bunny.

Helped by the friendly Eggsperts, venture past the crazy control panel, which controls the entire world’s chocolate eggs production.

Then creep down the bunny-themed secret passage and into the Easter Bunny’s cosy front room, where all those aged one-12 will meet the bunny and receive a free chocolate egg.

And that’s not all. This year’s fun runs from Monday, April 3, to Friday, April 21, and includes a massive Easter treasure hunt, ‘Eggs Galore’ scratch card game, and golden egg prize draw – with thousands of prizes to be won, including an iPad and vouchers to spend in The Milky Way shop.

Then on Saturday, April 15, Star Wars fans will be excited to hear that stormtroopers and other characters from the legendary films are returning once again to The Milky Way.

Throughout the day visitors will be able to meet and take pictures with characters from the films.

Sci-fi fans must also remember to visit the amazing display of sci-fi memorabilia while they’re at The Milky Way. This is one man’s vast private collection of characters, collectables and fan art from film and television – expect to see rare displays from Daleks to Darth Vader.

“We’re determined to kick off the 2017 season in style,” said owner Tara Stanbury. “Thanks to the hard work of our partners at Marvellous Event-ures, our Easter grotto is looking fantastic, with lots of quirky creative touches, including Easter Bunny-themed furniture.

“It’s exciting to be able to offer a magical experience that most children won’t have had before – as well as the chance to win thousands of prizes.

“And our Star Wars events offer something different again. Fans of the films (big and small) love to see their favourite characters come to life … and are fascinated by the amazing finds in the sci-fi exhibit.

“We think that new and regular visitors to The Milky Way will be delighted by what they find here this Easter, and we look forward to welcoming them all.”

Visitors can also look forward to all of the usual attractions on offer at The Milky Way, which was recently named Large Visitor Attraction of the Year by Visit Devon. All events are included in the general admission price, which allows access to all the rides, slides, shows and activities designed to entertain the whole family.
