Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I had this same experience, on my 3rd and final day at scarefest, sunday 21st, me and my brother had bought tickets for the Welcoming at 8pm so we could come out and queue for Wickerman. At 6pm I really wanted to get one more night ride of the Smiler in so we split up, it had 90 min queue but became...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

So the question is to me, looking at it from a first time guest or infrequent visitor, Why should I pay extra to go into the Alton Towers Dungeon when I have loads of other major rides that I don't have to pay more for? I second this. Maybe I would do it once since I've never been to one of the Dun...

Indeed! I love the light of the marmaliser and screens being cast across the whole area.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Seen a bit of a Scarefest video showing the board outside Project 42 and noticed it mentions the use of latex. Is this just for the actor prosthetics? I ask since I've bought my mum tickets and she is allergic to latex.

The park has posted a picture of the scarefest map on their facebook page. The towers courtyard looks very busy!

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Seems they put minimum effort in with that teaser, hope there's something a bit more substantial soon. Or not, it's quite nice going into an attraction totally clueless.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Been to towers 8 times this year, been TP, BPB, DM a few times too... Yesterday at Alton Towers was the best!!! Haven’t seen any park that busy outside Scarefest / Fireworks for well over a decade. The atmosphere was great, queues were long despite all rides having all trains on, and very little do...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

The way of social media is to find the most cynical train of thought and board it without a moments thought, seeing the phrase ' infected by a mutant antidote' and concluding it will be the same as Sub Species. To me, the alien infection part of Sub Species never came through at all in the actual ma...

I was wondering exactly that, if they're not planning to reopen the ride they could do anything they wanted with the hole. Only rode it once but I seem to remember it being quite a large space. Anything could be lurking in the pit below...

Re: Project 42 (Nemesis Sub-Terra) - New for Scarefest 2018

I'm glad they're doing something with that site, being right at the entrance of Forbidden Valley made the area seem dejected but during Scarefest this year it's going to give it much more life towards the back of the park having a live attraction there.

Re: Scarefest

Only thing they need to do is make sure the mazes are staffed enough. TOTT was a classic, but my last run the finale seemed much shorter and the conga line was a big handicap compared to the way the other mazes are done. Excited to find out the story behind the new maze, could well be connected to P...

Re: ‘Stargazing Pods’ Accommodation Discussion

Depends on the price, if it was considerably cheaper than the hotels I'd be up for that, though I'm not sure they need more accommodation.
