The attraction is $20 which includes the Main House(Hangmans) and three side attrac...

Re: Scarefest 2012

Just want to get across the Boiler House is NOT returning next year. This has been confirmed by AT.

So 2012 Carnival of Screams, Same ToTT and a new maze. Alton won't do a new Maze and a new Terror Of the towers. The Ents team have enough on there plate

Re: Scarefest 2012

Personally I think it's time for the Boiler House to go and for ToTT to have a complete overhaul. It's getting very stale

Going to Scarefest and not Doing Terror Of The Towers :O I wanted to do Terror of the Towers but the queues were massive for it. I was considering buying a fastrack for it but it looked as though it would make no difference! :([/quote] I bought the fast track and it gets you straight in, you have t...

Re: Travelers on park today

Personally the main reason I make the 3 hour trip from weston super mare instead of the 1 hour 30 trip to thorpe is so I can get away from the chavs and teenagers everywhere and when I was there on sunday I would have preferred a park full of chavs over travellers. I am moving to America next week ...

Re: should the seperate scaremazes be free?

As it stands with the quality compared to terror of the towers then yes they should but I believe they should be an add on but because of this make it a more premium maze

Re: Scarefest 2011: General Discussion

I really do hate the whole "walk in a chain like mustard gas victims at the Somme" thing. Why can't they just let us walk normally? Health and safety 1- Keeps your hands off the actors 2- keeps the groups together so the front of the group don't run ahead etc It makes sense otherwise wher...

Re: Ride Failures/Breaking Down

Its coming to the end of the season and reliability is decreasing slightly thats why breakdowns have increased.

The main reasons for the breakdowns are sensors reacting badly which sends the ride into an emergency stopped and they open back up again when all the systems have been restored

Re: Scarefest 2011: General Discussion

I have to disagree with your review of the zombies scare zone, I personally thought it was a great addition, No Que and and amazing atmosphere. Its not there to scare the life out of you like the mazes but as a nice little walkthrough which I thought worked very well. The lighting was great, the smo...
