Alton Towers prepares for Scarefest 13th October – 4th November



After the much publicised legal case surrounding Alton Towers and its neighbours the park is going all out to create a fantastic Halloween event this year called Scarefest. The event which will run from 13th October through to the 4th November will feature all manor of ghastly goings on.

A variety of events aimed at younger children which includes a pumpkin patch and trick or treat doors. Plus hotel guests also have access to spooky bedtime stories and trick or treat trail.

For kids a little braver they have a Halloween show in the park and various characters Patch, Frank, Skelvin and Phil. Plus fancy dress and a trick or treat trial.

For fearless and screaming teenagers and adults the park is utilising the haunted hollow with various characters in it and new for this year is the corn maze which is at the back of the hotel – the official web site describes this as a “spine tingling story of zombies and mayhem” Plus a variety of things going on back at the hotels.

Here’s a few pictures of the special scarefest promotional car, it looks like a ford Granada. 😉
