Alton Towers have released the Scarefest map on facebook. Gloomy Wood Alive seems to be a thing, is this just the Alton Ancestors back and roaming the area or something new?

Alton Towers website confirms that Gloomy Wood Alive is just the Alton Ancestors so nothing new really.
Life is a roller coaster. You can either scream every time you hit a bump or you can throw your hands up in the air and enjoy it.

So after experiencing Containment, at Thorpe I have to say while I was previously contemplating it, considering the way in which they are being described as very similar experiences (obviously on a grander scale at the towers though) I have been completely put off. I really hope they are nothing alike, otherwise there's gonna be a lot of angry people having dropped lots of money on it.

Alton Towers have posted a few photos of Towers Street's Scarefest decorations/theming on their Facebook. I think there are a few new pieces, notably the Scarefest sign which I quite like.

Really looking forward to Scarefest this year!!
After facing TheHunted on saturday night at XtremeScreamPark All i can say is a really really look forward to Molly Crowe!There hooded maze really was very very intense. So i cant wait to see how they implement that concept to Molly Crowe! As for my scarefest outfits, this year i take inspiration not from TMOJ but..Terror Of The Towers,Th13teen and Nox Infernus hehe
Ready to join the cult on the night of fire!!!

Sorry! I wasn't able to as the queue for Rapids was quite long, and then we did Oblivion... I tried later in the day, but we couldn't be bothered to queue for skyride (dark forest) where you can see it, also I could see some storage containers before hand. Also the entire Sub-Spicies mazes appers to have the 'Th13teen' style lighting and looks like it's fully enclosed/covered up!!

Getting a free trial run on one of the #Scarefest mazes at #altontowers let's see if this is any good!!!!

#scarefest maze was very good. Take a spare pair of pants if you're going. #altontowers @altontowers


Apparently some of the actors have found out they may be asked to shave their heads for Scarefest lol.

Probably just randomly picking people from the resort to run through them to test things and give feedback.
