Alton Towers’ website has been updated with the announcement that Scarefest will receive an ‘extended day’ on Thursday November 1st. Previously, this day was to be a ‘normal’ day at the Theme Park, sandwiched between the final day of Scarefest and the first day of the annual fireworks event.

Now, guests will be able to enjoy Scarefest’s line-up of scary and family friendly attractions for an extra day, however the 9pm ride close, arguably the key drawing point of the event wont be present, with rides and scare mazes closing at 6:30pm.

Scarfest Freedom Passes and Annual Passes will be valid for the extra day. Alton Towers are also offering free Scarefest maze tickets, worth up to £13, for guests who book a visit for November 1st online.
