Don't use the word breakdown, a Mirror 'reporter' might be around! :P

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.

I've never been to Fright Nights but there's always people at Scarefest in costume, so I say go for it!

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 find Love Island far more horrifying than any Saw movie on a very fundamental level.

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

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.

Re: The Future of Nemesis Sub-Terra

I'd like to think that too, but there's been activity on that site several times over the last few years and nothings ever come of it. With the seemingly reduced budget reopening doesn't seem likely cos Sub Terra was known to be expensive to run for what it was. Alternatively, maybe the reduced budg...

Wicker Man at dusk is spectacular! The theme comes into it's own and it feels really out of control.

Re: The Walking Dead: Living Nightmare Extreme

Wish I knew about this earlier in the year. I don't watch Walking Dead so a retheme of X didn't interest me, but a horror maze crammed with actors that's open all day and free sounds amazing!
