Alton Towers Resort's Scarefest 2017 promises to offer the most terrifying event to date!

This year, a brand new Scare Maze, 'The Welcoming: Be Chosen', joins the terrifying line-up, set to not only be a petrifying experience in itself, but also providing a first glimpse into the Resort’s new attraction for 2018, currently codenamed ‘Secret Weapon 8’.

Other live mazes include the return of Altonville Mine Tours, 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 '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 as well as the spooky walkthrough experience for families with children aged 8+, House Of Monsters, introduced last year.

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!
