Alton Towers Resort has received four nominations for the ScareCON SCAR awards, the annual awards which recognise and champion all aspects of the scare industry – from Halloween events, to year-round scare attractions.

In the nominations for the 12th annual awards, which were revealed last night by ScareCON, the Resort picked up nominations in the following categories:

  • Best Year-Round Scare Attraction – The Alton Towers Dungeon
  • Best Set, Costume and Make-Up – Project 42
  • Best Set Piece or Scene – Project 42 final scene
  • Best Street Team and Entertainment

Alton Towers Resort will be hoping to return to winning ways this year, having walked away empty handed in 2018 despite receiving two nominations. These latest nominations follow on from several previous successes which have seen the Resort win awards for ‘Best Halloween Scare Attraction’ for Altonville Mine Tours: Uncover the Legend of the Skin Snatchers and the ‘Award for Technical Excellence’ for the Haunted Lanterns in Altonville Mine Tours in 2017. Previous years have also seen the Resort win awards in various categories including ‘Best Halloween Scare Attraction’ for Sub Species: The End Games, and The Sanctuary, and ‘Best Overnight Scare Experience’ in 2014 and 2015.

Thorpe Park Resort also feature in the nominations picking up two nominations in the ‘Best Zombie Experience Category’.

Now in its twelfth year, the SCAR awards are held annually by ScareCON in association with ScareTOUR (a site dedicated to providing independent reviews of scare attractions all over the world) and Fear FX.  Held at a well-known attraction each year, the 2019 ScareCON event will be held at Alton Towers Resort on 20th-22nd May 2019 and brings together professionals from across the scare industry, including designers, owners, fans and experts.
