Alton Towers Scarefest entrance

Alton Towers has revealed that two additional attractions have been added to the line-up for its Scarefest 2011 Halloween events.

The first attraction, Thirteen After Dark, is returning from the 2010 events but was not included in previous Scarefest 2011 announcements. It will see a number of scare actors lurking in and around the queue for the Thirteen rollercoaster, with many being recognisable from Alton Towers' original marketing campaign for the ride. You can read what we thought of last year's version in our Scarefest 2010 review.

An all-new addition is the Phil's Feathered Friends bird of prey show, which will feature owls and eagles. The family-friendly show will take place at 2pm daily through the Scarefest 2011 events, which will run from October 15-31.

Alton Towers has been slowly leaking out details of the Scarefest 2011 attractions, having initially announced a line-up that was near-identical to last year's event. It has since added the ZOMBIES! Scare Zone, which will be set in the wake of a nuclear war that devastated the UK.

You can read full details of the planned events in Theme Park Tourist's Alton Towers Scarefest 2011 preview. A full review of the Scarefest attractions will be posted on the site shortly after the events commence.



Hi ...
Never been to their Scarefest before...
Just wondering if rest of the rides be running as normal (like oblivion, air and others) or will it only be the Halloween attractions that are open during the scarefest?

All of Alton Towers' rides are open during Scarefest, although some of them shut at around 4.30pm. The rest are open until 9pm.
