Re: 2013 Scarefest

okay, cheers for that  :p) but how does it work that your time slot is 4.15-4.30 (a 15 minute slot) for both mazes? That's the time you do the first maze and you have to do the second maze within half an hour of that. So either tickets today were getting sold wrong or people were trying there ...

Re: 2013 Scarefest

I think it's just the Sunday but some could show on the Saturday. Happens every year with people's days getting ruined. Unfortunately all they can do is increase security.

The scare actors at Alton Towers are very good at what they do. They really go the extra mile for those that dare the extreme versions of the mazes.


So by us going in first are we seeing an extreme version but less extreme than the full version of just the normal sanctuary?

Re: 2013 Scarefest

to be honest they sound like there really getting on top of it, and i dare say if you have to sign the disclaimer they will match an id to your information you submit, plus if there training is anything like it is at Tesco we are told although a product say Alcohol is 18 to buy the purchaser must l...

Re: 2013 Scarefest

does anyone else think that with them selling out of maze slots the queues are going to be stupidly long Hopefully after last year they might have thought out the timing process a bit better. When we went there was so many at carnival at once we didn't get on any of the rides in the dark! Really di...
