The black poles are still there for all the haunted hallow lights, but the lights on top have all been removed and now have tops on them. I cant see why, just seems like spending money removing them for no reason. Unless they do have plans for haunted hallow for scarefest. If they just leave the haunted hallow open as normal then they need more lights than last year, at some points on the path it was in total darkness.
That's just the most insane thing Alton Towers have ever done! Removing lights?? Bloody hell!
On regular nights those lights lit the pathway beautifully, dim enough to enjoy the darkness but light enough to see the pathway. At both Scarefest 2007 and 2008 they added green filter gels to the insides giving the path an eerie green glow.
1 step forward and 2 steps back? YES!
