Alton Towers Scarefest returns for 2018 with an action packed lineup of adrenaline fueled scare attractions paired with late night rides! Taken from Alton Towers – ‘Will you join us for our most terrifying Scarefest yet? Yes, Scarefest is back and has more spine-tingling terrors than ever before. Our multi award winning scare mazes have been re-scarified for this year and we are adding another NEW maze to the line up! And as if that’s not scary enough, dare you take on our world-class thrill rides in the dark? Will you hurtle towards a six-storey high Wicker Man effigy as it spectacularly bursts into flames?’ 

Scare Maze Lineup…


Project 42

Project 42 is the new scare maze replacing the legendary ‘Terror of The Towers’ which won’t be returning to Scarefest in 2018. Project 42 is rumoured to be located at the ‘Nemesis – Sub Species’ ride and could be based around a similar theme. Full details are yet to be released but enthusiasts are predicting a fairly large scale maze production as a suitable replacement for Terror of The Towers!

Sub Species – The End Games

Let the death race begin! Descend deep underground to a post-apocalyptic sewer system. Here your group will be split up and you will choose your own route in an attempt to avoid a sewer dwelling community. The community have to appease the creature that rules over them by sacrificing innocent people from the surface – your demise is now their entertainment!

Altonville Mine Tours

Those brave enough can head to ‘Altonville’ and enter the damp, disused mine, which is believed to have once been home to a family of village outcasts. Nicknamed the ‘Skin Snatchers’ by local residents, their spine-chilling secret is about to be unearthed. Remember ‘Beauty is only skin deep’.

The Welcoming: Be Chosen

Followers of the Wicker Man spirit, a mysterious group previously unseen by the modern world, have been sighted within the Resort. Every year the secluded group host a festival to celebrate their own interpretation of Halloween – paying homage to the earth and celebrating the crossover between the living world and the dead. This year they are allowing outsiders to celebrate with them. But what part will you (‘the outsiders’) play in this ritual?

The family based ‘House of Monsters’ will also return along side more family friendly ‘scare entertainers’ located around the park in a street performance format.
