Hi all, I was speaking to Head of Scarefest the other day, and i recommended some things to him, along with some hints and of course, i mentioned the line up, and i got a reply from him, which was quite interesting to read,
He said this 'Scarefest is a huge project for us at the resort and we collectively put our heart at soul into it. We continually strive to improve our offering over Scarefest and appreciate any input from interested parties. Often we contend with several constraints, which requires us to concentrate out efforts into ensuring the world class delivery of our products.
Having recently taken the role I assure you that I will make every effort to make this the best Scarefest yet. I would urge you to gear yourself up for our new attraction for 2012, it's original and bound to be the most terrifying attraction Alton has ever seen.
Whether we do or do not add any other attractions. I can assure you that even though the line up remains the same, it will be far superior to previous years'
It's very cresting to see what he said to me, and how he addressed it. From what he said, it looks like the Line-up will stay the same, with nothing being added, and of course, he never said much about the 2012 attraction, or the locations of both mazes, but he did say 'It will be the most terrifying attraction Alton has ever seen' meaning this maze could be one of the best in History.
He said he's aiming to make it the best Scarefest yet, even though the line-up is tiny this year. He never said much about Zombies Scare Zone either. I did recommend Duel Live, Hex Live and Haunted Hollow Live to him, and i did say that it would be fantastic if these attractions returned, he is considering them he told me, and he also said my comments were strongly taken on-board.
That is very interesting to hear. To be honest I hope Duel, Hex or Hallow Live come back because in my opinion they were some of the best attraction there! Alton Towers are focusing on the 'thrilling' side of scarefest to much, even through the mazes aren't that thrilling.
The best year for scarefest was 2010, as we had TWO new attractions for scarefest - Thirteen After Dark, Carnival of Screams. Why can't they do that, as people are saying scarefest is falling extremely and Thorpe Park's Fright Night's are getting better and Alton Towers need to watch out!
I do hope they have some HUGE improvements this year, like in the lighting! Not just flood lighting every thing (DARK FOREST!)
I do love Alton Towers but they are falling a bit! But as I said this is interesting. Lets hope for the best!
