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. Are you brave enough to take on head-spinning, hair-raising coasters in darkness? Bold enough to tiptoe through the Alton Towers Dungeon? Mad enough for our multi-award-winning terrifying scare attractions? Horrifying creatures beckon within them – can you escape?
Terrifying Scare Mazes
The Invitation is an audio-led experience, you will be required to wear headphones as you venture down into the lakeside cemetery in an all-new theme park scare experience. The Lakeside Cemetery invites you to join them for a grave experience that will live with you for eternity. Their friendly funeral director is dying to assist you as you descend into the burial chamber, where you can choose your final resting place. Some caskets have already been filled, but there are others, still empty, waiting for you… (Recommended for those aged 12+)
The Attic: Terror of the Towers
Around here, people talk of the Governess – how she’s haunted by the death of her young charges, how she wants revenge, and how she’ll take it by seizing the spirits of the living in retribution. They say her ghost haunts The Attic. That’s where you’re headed. Dare you risk your immortal soul? (Recommended for those aged 12+)
Get ready for a terrifying new adventure 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! (Recommended for those aged 12+)
Altonville Mine Tours
The ‘Skin Snatchers’, we call them. Outcasts, their whole family. Rumours are they lived in that old mine. It’s deep and dark and the damp inside gives you the proper shivers. Just recently some fool reopened it – for tours! Be careful: they say those Skin Snatchers have a secret too horrifying for words. Beauty’s only skin deep. Remember that. (Recommended for those aged 12+)
