As reported on TowersTimes News, the Resort have received five ScareCON Scar Award nominations, four of which are for Altonville Mine Tours: Uncover the Legend of the Skin Snatchers.

This is a reflection of the continued hard work the Resort have been putting into improving the Scarefest offering over the past couple of years. However, I am somewhat disappointed that House of Monsters was not nominated in any category, as for me that was the stand out addition to the line-up last year.

I must agree, Lakey!

The Scarefest line up was particularly strong last year and it would have been nice for House of Monsters to receive some recognition. This was a well executed attraction with great theming and storyline. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to its return this year.

Hopefully, we will see Terror receive a complete makeover this year, with Sub Species following the year after. If they can keep the line up on a rolling refresh, setting high standards, then I can see them winning the Halloween battle for many years to come.

We think the reason House of Monsters didn't get shortlisted is because the panel were probably thinking about "main scare mazes". It certainly was a highlight of the 2016 line up, and we are very pleased to see it return in 2017

The first time I visited Alton during Scarefest was in 2016, so this year will have a lot to live up to since the bar was set so high last year!
