Very much agree with this, disappointed to not see her feature. Although, she is included in the logo on the hearse graphics.

Terror of the Towers is not opening for Scarefest in 2018 – it’s receiving the love and care it needs to get back up to scratch and will return soon

Does this mean that TOTT could return for next year?

I'm a new member but I have been reading along for a number of years. II'm m not too knowledgeable about the mechanics of a ride but I'm all about theming and promo stuff like that I love it, also a big fan of the music production behind rides etc. I absolutely love Alton Towers since I first visited about 10 years ago. Unfortunately, because of the distance, I cant visit as often I would like to and haven't had a visit for about 3 years and I really miss it... anyway back on topic!
This year, me and my friends are visiting on Monday 29th October, so I would like to know if anyone has any indication of how busy it will be, the best deals to get in terms of fastrack and scare mazes? Maybe tips on the most effective journey around the park to get the most out of it? As I say I dont get to go very often, so I need to make the most of it!

2. If it's the same as when I stayed, you'll get a fastrack for most of the rides on park, and maybe Wicker Man or The Smiler. This can be used once on each ride spread out across the 2 days you are staying on park.
3. The 4.5 year old should enjoy the shows on the Trick or Treat stage, while the 9 year old might like the Alton Ancestors, and possibly House of Monsters.
4. For lunch my personal favourite is Eastern Express, located in both Mutiny Bay and the Forest Feast kiosk in Dark Forest opposite Rita. If you're not a fan, we've found the Explorers Pizza and Pasta Buffet in Katanga Canyon quite good as well. For dinner, it really depends when you're planning on eating and if you want to stay inside the theme park or not. If you don't mind the extra cost, the Rollercoaster Restaurant is worth eating at even just for the experience, but the food can sometimes be a bit hit and miss in some areas. There's also Woodcutter's Bar and Grill just outside Dark Forest which is usually quite high quality and good value. If you mind venturing back to the hotels, the Crooked Spoon in the Enchanted Village is a good bet, as is The Secret Garden restaurant in the Alton Towers Hotel. There's also Flambo's Jambo in Splash Landings Hotel, but it's pretty similar to the Pizza and Pasta Buffet on park. It's also worth noting that if you just want a quick bite and not a full meal there will be vans and kiosks around park serving hot dogs, burgers, donuts and the like.
Hope this helps!
