Re: 2013 Scarefest

Doubt much will change this scarefest. As much as we hope it's unlikely TOTT will change much if at all. Sanctuary will be coming back but slightly different but mostly the same I assume. I thought Carnivals new location last year was great. Good fun to have both indoor and outdoor bits. They just n...

Re: What slide would you like to see in the Waterpark!?

They need to rework the indoor section. Maybe add a couple of small slides to the Waterworks for the kids, add a wave machine to the main pool. They could also easily install a small vertical slide where you stand in the pod and the floor drops to the inside area as well. They don't have much room t...

Re: Quick Questions 2012

Where can I find a half price entry voucher that's valid during scarefest?
Going on the 20th with friends who have annual passes but only have 241 vouchers which I can't use as no one else has to buy an entry ticket.

Re: Scarefest 2012: General Discussion

Where can I find the Scarefest app?
Searched the app store for Merlin, Scarefest and Alton Towers and it's not appearing. Says on the Alton site and TT that it's launched.

Haha. That would be me that made it. :) I made it in the hope that someone with the knowledge of coding would be able turn it into a working sim. However noone was able to help so it hasn't progressed any further due to me not having the time to learn all the programmes needed to make it all myself....

As for the outdoor farm parts I am hoping fo1ks lends it experience to making it a very scary unique event.
The field won't be used at all as they haven't grown the crops this year. Apparently it's been hard to grow corn this year as other attractions have been struggling to get it to grow in time.

Does anyone know which weekend the travellers are likely to descend en masse please? Thanks

I think it's the first Sunday of the event. If not it's the second Sunday but I'm sure I remember it being the first weekend.

Re: Idea for a future scare maze

Nope. The theme has to be appealing to the target audience. A dubstep maze isn't scary. Major parks tend to stick with themes that are familiar.

Terror of the Towers sim

Apologies if this is in the wrong part of the forums but just finished doing a rough edit of this but want to get people's opinions. Still not happy with the way the buttons and stuff are done but it's just rearranging it so it looks good. Any feedback would be appreciated on what you like and what ...

Re: Scarefest 2012

But they should also have actors in the drop section and the track change section that would be really good! They can't as that would be a massive health and safety risk with all the moving trains and parts. If you're off to experience Scarefest and the mazes over the next few days (excluding Satur...

Re: Scarefest 2011: General Discussion

Just a general note for you all. It's been pretty much confirmed that Boiler House is not returning next year. I'm going back tomorrow with my brothers. Deciding whether it's worth paying for the two mazes again so they can do it. I'd pay to do Carnival again but not sure if I can be bothered to pay...

It's pretty likely that Boiler House is going next year. Also the entertainments team are already looking for new locations for scare zones after the success of the one this year.

Re: Alton Towers Scare Room (FULL SPOILERS)

I don't think we had the hotel manager at all in our room. The only male characters we had was the chef and the bell boy.
It's interesting how everyone seems to have a completely different experience of the scare rooms though. :)
