Please can anyone tell me if Alton have an e-mail address? I have looked on their website and cannot find one!
I'm not 100% sure if Alton still use this email. I'd say your best bet is to just phone them up.
Or you could write to them:
Alton Towers Resort
Dad anyone go on Hex Live last year at the scarefest? :D and was it anygood, what happened etc?
I didn't go on Hex: Live myself although I've grabbed a few posts from the Scarefest 2009 topic
and put them in the spoiler box for you below:
Went on Hex:live yesterday, just the same old Hex story, but with actors caring the sh!t out of everyone.
We got in the queue for Hex at 5:30, and waited about 45 minutes to get on the ride. The interior of the queue was really creepy, with shop mannequins in various positions draped in cloth, which *could* have been actors. Obviously, we didnt know what to expect , so we were all the more worried when the ride op at the turnstile was escorting adults with young children off the ride. Then she made an announcement that the ride was not suitable for children under 12, or those with a nervous disposition. We went into the first preshow room, and soon everybody was keeping half an eye on two hooded figures that were stood behind the two doors at the back of the room. The video finished, and there was pitch black, until the lights came on, and the doors opened. The two figures then promptly chased us out of the first room, into the octagon. The same effects were played, and about 12 actors just pushed their way through the huddle. They were brilliantly costumed, and really did provide in your face scares, gnashing and cackling. There were yet more actors behind the bookcase, and one of them banged on the side of the door when we went past, which was really scary! The actors on the corridor actually followed us into the vault, before leaving us. The doors shut momentarily, and then two hooded figures walked in again. They did not speak, and just stood there, arms raised. Naturrally we copied, wanting the ride to start. After that it was back to same old same old. I really hope they bring this back for next year -8/10

Hex Live was brilliant, can't believe that was organised by just staff members!
At least 10 actors were in the Octagon room and after the bookcase (including teh witch herself) providing brilliant scares to everyone. The hosts in the vault were also good at staying in character. This all really added to the experience and my non-enthusiast friends loved it as well.
HexLive has to return next year was very funny and well worked by the actors.

This was my favourite Scarefest attraction! There was a long queue, but it was worth it. Unlike Duel the actors completely and utterly 'blended in' with the attraction. Actors ranged from a Grim Reaper walking around in the first room to chained men and blood stained maids in the second room. It was scary, a lot of scarier than The Field. In the final room the normal 'put bags under the seats... blah, blah' guys were replaced by hooded actor, who shouted the information and glared and those who didn't comply.
Absolutely amazing attraction, thank you to the Cloud Cuckoo Land staff, hopefully to be made a 'proper' part of Scarefest next year.
I too, enjoyed Hex:Live. With a bit of money and expertise there is no reason why Alton couldn't make this a more permanent affair.
For what it was, it was enjoyable and did have several good scares! More than the Field.
I had no idea this attraction was even on this year. I thought when we were wandering there is was a joke, it was only until I saw the sign did I realise "Oh, okay this is new."
I was surprised with this one, it was well orchestrated and really quite creepy. There were many actors spread through-out the rides areas and all giving a chilling scare to everyone. There was a great atmosphere in the Octagon where amidst the blackness and lightning there were many screams which just added to the effect. This continued all the way to the vault and even inside. Great addition and one which must return next year. 7.5/10
