There were reports online earlier in the week that a mysterious message had appeared in the queue line for Duel at Alton Towers which said "06 + 09 = The Duel is over. This is my house." It has now been confirmed that Duel has closed at Alton Towers and it has currently been removed from the queue times App.
The official website page for Duel now simply reads, "Property Repossessed, Strictly no unwanted visitors. Due to unnatural displays in the area." There is an email sign up to be kept up to date with further details when they are released.
Duel originally opened at Alton Towers in 1992 and was a traditional haunted house and it was in 2003 that laser guns were added and was refurbished to carry a zombie theme. Alton Towers is being very secretive so far regarding the plans for Duel but we are expecting that the laser guns will be removed and it is likely to be changed back to being a traditional haunted house but with a modern twist.
We will keep you posted on further details as soon as they are released. What would you like to see from Duel when it reopens? We are hoping to see the refurbished attraction up and running again for the start of the 2023 season. Let us know your thoughts by leaving a comment below or on our Facebook page.
