Long before the Haunted House opened, guests could take a haunted trip through Alton Towers’ very own family run funeral parlor, Doom and Sons.

Location: Talbot Street

Opening Year: 1981

Closing Year: 1992

This was a small walk-through ghost house situated next to what is now Charlie and Chocolate Factory. It was a very compact attraction, comprising of a couple of different rooms and corridors. Guests were invited to open doors, revealing spooks and skeletons, walk over slanted floors and were spooked by loud noises and spooky music.

The technology involved was of a similar calibre to that of traditional fun houses which graced amusement parks across the world, and because it was so hands on it was a fairly good experience. The attraction was removed at the end of 1992 after the new Haunted House was opened in Gloomy Wood.
