Alton Towers - Scarefest - 23rd October

Mon Oct 14, 2019 4:35 pm

Hi guys!! 

Thinking of going to Alton Towers during Scarefest on the 23rd Oct (Wednesday). I've never been at this time of year, and am aware it is October half term plus Scarefest...has anyone ever been at this time and knows how busy it will be? Is it worth going or just too packed??

Thanks :D

I usually go during the half term week, but it is usually the 2nd week that is the quietest.  It appears that most counties are off school the second week this year.  So either week could be busy and looks like I've picked the worse week out of the two for my visit  :@

Some schools have just over a week off and could overlaps into both weeks. 

Yes worth going, but plan well and don't follow the crowds. Do the most popular rides first (first thing, get in early as queues can build up within minutes) or last thing.
