Alton Towers will unleash their 2011 Scarefest event in just four weeks with a brand new attraction – Zombies! Scare Zone. The event, which runs from Saturday 15th to Monday 31st October, will see theme park rides open until 9:00pm together with a host of spooky halloween attractions – for both thrill seekers and families.

The Resort has a reputation for top quality scare attractions, and has won several “Screamie” awards over the years. This year, there are several major changes afoot – with the Boiler House and Carnival of Screams now located inside the theme park’s X-Sector, near to the Oblivion rollercoaster. Significant changes are expected to both mazes, with their new location inside the Black Hole Tent! In addition, the ‘Zombies! Scare Zone’ will be nearby, and of course – Terror of The Towers which returns under the “What Lies Within” slogan. For families, it’s all going on in Old MacDonald’s Farm, where a live show and spooky goings on will entertain children of all ages.

With the Towers ruins now closed to guests so that the legendary Terror of the Towers can be constructed, we look forward to keeping you updated in the run up to the event!
