Re: Alton Towers Ultimate Firework Spectacular

Alton Towers are offering a cheaper entry ticket for the Friday date. Entry is after 4pm but for £20 as opposed to the normal gate entry. As well as this, the Saturday date for fireworks is now sold out, so if you do not have a prebooked ticket, annual pass prebook ticket or not staying on site for ...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Out of all the mazes, I do feel The Attic is the stand out attraction at the event. It combines a good story, great theming and some clever scares to make an overall great experience.

I've been through multiple times now and I've yet to have a sub-par run through

Re: Short London Trip - Help Needed!

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

I realistically couldn't see a Lego expansion coming to the park, with there already being a park based purely on it in the UK and with it being accessible, there really isn't much point to it in my opinion. I think we'd see a new IP come to the park or a new, original world with new rides and conce...

Re: TowersTimes’ Summer Festival Vol.2 - Reviews & Feedback

For a second year, the TT Festival was great! Loved the day with the activities planned and the rides inbetween. Was great to see so many new comers and was even better to hear they enjoyed their first event! It's amazing to see how big these groups get and to see so many new faces join each time! M...

Re: Scarefest Fast Tracks

Hi there does anyone know if they do Fastrack tickets for the mazes like they do at Thorpe Park please? Alton Towers don't sell Fastracks for their mazes. The mazes you have to pay for separately from the entry ticket to the park but there are no Fastrack options for the scare mazes when you have p...

Re: Fright Nights

I'm really hoping this year is better than the last, hopefully there will be more focus on the quality rather than the quantity of mazes as the vast majority did really fall flat last year. As seen above, Living Nightmare and Containment are set to return but I'm hoping we see another 1/2 existing m...

Having given it a few weeks to think over. I can say that I'm extremely excited for Scarefest this year. Whilst yes we do have regular attractions in Mine Tours and Sub Species returning (even though I would have thought 1 or at least both would have been removed), these are still solid attractions ...
