Scarefest entrance

Alton Towers has revealed details of the pricing for its Scarefest Halloween events, with temporary horror mazes once again carrying an additional charge.

Adult tickets purchased at the gate will cost £46.80, with a special £20 ticket being offered to those who enter the park after 4pm. The Carnival of Screams scare maze will be included with the price of entry, but The Sanctuary and Terror of the Towers will carry an additional charge of £10 before 5pm, and £12 after 5pm. There are a variety of discounts on offer when booking online - and you can find a number of other ways to save on our Alton Towers deals page.

Scarefest 2013 will run from October 19 - November 3. Whereas the park has stayed open until 9pm during every night of the events in previous years, in 2013 the events from October 21-25 had instead been scheduled to close at 7pm. However, the park is now expected to remain open until the later hour on every day of the Halloween celebrations.

This year's events will feature a familiar format, with a range of horror mazes and family attractions on offer. The most notable change is to the park's line-up of horror mazes. Although this will be identical to last year's event, featuring Carnival of Screams, The Sanctuary and Terror of the Towers, Carnival of Screams will now be free to all guests. Terror of the Towers, which has been free in previous years, will be a premium attraction.
