Dungeon Square

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!

Darkest Depths Square

Darkest Depths

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!

Add Darkest Depths onto your Theme Park entry when you pre-book.

The Alton Towers Dungeon & Darkest Depths are suitable for guests aged 10+. Additional charge applies. All guests are required to wear a face mask in our scare mazes & the Alton Towers Dungeon.

Scarefest Thrill

Spine-tingling Terror

Brave enough to ride our head-spinning, hair-raising coasters in total darkness? Bold enough to tiptoe through our Dungeon in the dark? Mad enough for our horrifying, terrifying mazes? Two have already won awards – and a third brand new outdoor maze beckons – can you escape?
