Get ready for creepy scares, shocks and thrills as Scarefest returns and it’s more spooktacular than ever! This October, summon the courage to enter Alton Towers Resort where terror awaits.

New for 2023

Daz Games: PANIC!

Daz Games dares you to take on the first adrenaline-inducing escape room meets live action scare maze for the ultimate horror experience.

Plunged into darkness, your mission is simple – you have just seven minutes to take on an intense series of tests that will challenge the mind and body as you try to locate the symbols and escape…. all whilst evading capture from the inhabitants within.

Racing against the clock you'll have to think fast and stay calm as you take on an AI-themed assault of the senses… all before the game strikes back and traps you within. Forever
