Scarefest at Alton Towers Resort

Scarefest at Alton Towers Resort


Alton Towers Resort's Scarefest 2016 promises to offer the most terrifying event to date!

Two brand new spooky attractions are set to join the line-up for Scarefest 2016 at Alton Towers Resort. 'Altonville Mine Tours' will see the re-opening of a dis-used mine with a dark secret to host spine chilling tours and a family ‘scare’ maze is being launched for the very first time in 'House of Monsters'.

Other live mazes include the return of the hugely popular and award-winning ‘Sub Species: The End Games’, and the award-winning ‘Terror of the Towers: What Lies Within’ maze. After dark Alton Towers Resort will also become home to two Scare Zones, 'Dark Apocalypse' and the new 'Freak Show', each filled with its own free-roaming, gruesome and truly chilling residents.

Families will also get to enjoy Halloween frights at Alton Towers with Skelvin’s Spooky Storytime, Phil & Franklyn’s Ghoul School, and Patch’s Trick-Or-Treat Party. There really is something for all thrill seekers and families this Halloween, with tons of terrific rides, blockbusting attractions, amazing live shows, and weird and wonderful costume characters. Join us for our terrifying Scarefest event and ride your favourite rides after dark!

Scarefest tickets include:

Theme Park - Rides and attractions are open from 10:00, with selected rides open in the dark until 9.00pm!
