Alton Towers Scarefest


This year the Resort will undergo its frightfully impressive transformation to become home to the UK’s much-loved and best Halloween extravaganza ‘Scarefest’ from Friday October 9th to Sunday November 1st (selected dates).


NEW ‘Freak Show: Toxic Junkyard’ promises to get pulses racing as it joins the award-winning line up of live action scare mazes for thrillseekers. An outdoor maze, it will invite the foolhardy to venture into the Freak Show hidden den to discover the secret of the psycho clowns’ next big show.

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

Altonville Mine Tours: Uncover The Legend of the Skin Snatchers offering a tale with a not-so-beautiful twist. Those brave enough can also head to ‘Altonville’, a recently re-opened mine at the Resort, which holds a deep dark secret.
