The Towers


Opening Date:
Mar 16, 2013

Closure Date:
Apr 14, 2013

Originally installed as a temporary attraction for the Scarefest 2012 Halloween events, The Sanctuary horror maze is returning to Alton Towers for the start of the 2013 season. The maze takes guests on a tour of an "abandoned facility", which is claimed to have been uncovered during construction of the new SW7 roller coaster in the X-Sector area. It is hosted in the Alton Towers mansion itself, and is based around the mysterious "Ministry of Joy", which undertook experiments on humans during the early 20th century.
