Garden Lights Walk: Whispering Souls
This Scarefest come to Alton Towers Resort and enjoy the Gardens as never before and witness them come to life in a whole new spooktacular…LIGHT! With luscious stretching lawns, vibrant beds and conservatory areas, Alton Towers Resort Gardens are well worth a visit in the daylight but wait till darkness falls and get ready to take the most otherworldly stroll of your life, but beware! A mysterious energy runs through the Gardens’ water; around here people say it brings lost souls back from the dead for all Hallows’ Eve… hear that whisper? Who knows you might have phant…astical company on the way!
CBeebies Land Monster Ball
Dress up in your favourite costume and join some of the CBeebies characters live in Big Fun ShowTime as they dance, play games and learn all about spooky things! Featuring Bing, Ubercorn, Peter Rabbit and many more of your favourite CBeebies friends!
Freaky Fun Zone!
Ready to get spook-alicious? Join our five super-freaky Halloween characters in their mind-blowingly multi-coloured playground on the front lawns. Enjoy spook-tacular shows, meet and greets, photo opportunities and more! Join Patch’s Halloween party (it’s bigger and better than ever!) and hear ghostly tales from spooky Skelvin. Then help Gretyl make her magic spells and discover everything Phil and Franklin learnt at Ghoul School. So much fun, it’s scary!
The Alton Ancestors
Hear that scraping sound? It’s gravestones being moved – the Alton Ancestors are back from the dead and in their favourite haunts. Standing still is not an option so celebrate Halloween by learning their dance moves and joining in!
The Alton Towers Dungeon
As Scarefest descends on the Towers, 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 your delightful peasant screams… If you dare!
Enjoy some extra-spooky swashbuckling aboard ‘The Mutiny’, a notoriously spine-chilling ghost ship. You’ll truly earn your golden Piece of Eight by venturing into the darkest depths, avoiding the hazardous calls of the treacherous Sirens, dodging the swords of terrifyingly ghoulish pirate mutineers and coming face to face with the Kraken – the legendary monster of the seas!
