With Scarefest due to kick off on the 18th October Alton Towers is hard at work setting up the scare mazes and walkthrough attractions. This year Carnival of screams is dropped for another more family friendly walkthrough called Scary tales, the location of this maze is currently unknown however we believe that it will be where Carnival of screams which used to be just to the side of the events marquee. 

The Sanctuary and Terror Of The Towers appear to be almost ready with the entrance to the Sanctuary all set up in the conservatory and lights being hung around the surrounding area. Yesterday 27th September the work lights were seen to be on all day meaning that work is still going on in the mazes along with what appears to be air compressors being sighted in the towers. 

The Zombies walkthrough maze in Dark Forest is looking almost ready with a few rooms dividers being spotted which could be heading towards Scary tales? Posters have also gone up in the Rita / Dark Forest tunnel advertising the mazes and Scarefest event. A big thank you to Stretchy at Towers Nerd for the photos.

Scarefest Construction Update

Scarefest at Alton Towers is just around the corner and preparations are in full swing at the park! It appears that Terror of the towers has been finished with the black out drapes put into place in the conservatory and hanging lights put out in the courtyard where you get into the correct queue for terror of the towers and the nemesis sub species scare mazes. The bridge / exit of Nemesis Sub Species is still being constructed with the sides still yet to be added. However the lighting rigs to light up the towers at night seem to all be in place. 

Down at the old Molly Crow maze entrance a mine cart has been put outside the tunnel and speakers have been painted and put up ready for the skin snatchers maze. More news on scarefest over the next few weeks.
