Alton Towers’ Scarefest Will Return This Halloween With Some Truly Terrifying New Attractions

Alton Tower’s terrifyingly fantastic Scarefest is set to return with three terrifying new mazes.

Alton Towers is always bright and shiny, even in the rain (which is most of the time, if we’re being honest). But at Halloween, things get a touch darker, and a whole lot scarier.

Scarefest will return to the resort on October 6 with enough spooks, frights and thrills for the whole family and, of course, the Resort’s multi-award-winning scare mazes. And this year there are three new mazes joining the line-up:

The Attic: Terror of the Towers, a live-action maze where guests will discover the ghost of ‘The Governess’. Who, According to local legend, tries to avenge the death of her charges by taking the spirits of the living as penance – will you be her next victim?

Darkest Depths will see guests board the infamous ghost ship ‘The Mutiny’ and journey into the darkest depths to earn your piece of eight. The treacherous Sirens will try to lure you into the ocean as you dodge the swords of the mutinous ghost pirates and come face to face with the sea’s meanest legend of all … the Kraken!

Enter The Alton Towers Dungeon for a little less laughing… and a lot more screaming! Will you be found guilty by the Bishop of Stafford, survive a visit to the Plague Doctor and make it out of The Witch of Burslem’s Cottage? Enter The Alton Towers Dungeon this Halloween, as we celebrate the most hideously horrible time of year with even more screams… If you dare!

And if that’s not scary enough, guests will be able to take on the resort’s world-class thrill rides and attractions in the dark, including the newest addition to the park, Wicker Man.
