House of Monsters

This will give families the opportunity to join an up and coming online vlogger who has turned into somewhat of a new-age monster hunter. He is on a modern-day quest to discover the truth about monsters and his trail has led him to what is believed to be a disused house.

Altonville Mine Tours

This will give brave guests the opportunity to tour the depths of a recently re-opened mine at the resort, which holds a deep dark secret. ‘Altonville Mine Tours: Uncover the Legend of the Skin Snatchers’ will see guests taken on a tour deep underground in a brand new live action horror maze.

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 with a dark secret. Nicknamed the ‘Skin Snatchers’ by local residents, their spine-chilling secret is about to be unearthed.

But the story doesn’t end there…

The scares don’t end there, the Alton Towers Scarefest sees the return of two old favourites. The hugely popular and award-winning ‘Sub Species: The End Games’, a post-apocalyptic experience where a sewer dwelling community have been infested by a species from another world.


Plus, the award-winning ‘Terror of the Towers: What Lies Within’ maze returns. Taking those who enter through the undiscovered passageways of gothic towers to discover the dark secrets that await.

After dark Alton Towers Resort will also become home to two Scare Zones, Dark Apocalypse and the new Freak Show. Each filled with its own free-roaming, gruesome and truly chilling residents.
