Alton Towers at Halloween

Alton Towers' annual Halloween event features spooky shows, creepy characters and terrifying scare mazes across the theme park.


Every October, Alton Towers takes on a spooky twist as Scarefest takes over the park. Featuring a mixture of family friendly shows, characters and more extreme scare mazes to terrify the bravest souls, the event is a celebration of all things ghoulish.

Although the park had haphazardly hosted Halloween events in several of the preceeding years, Scarefest debuted in 2007. The event has been growing since then, with additions and changes to the attractions lineup most years.

Scarefest 2020 sees some massive changes in response to the Covid-19 pandemic to encourage social distancing, but several popular Scarefest experiences are returning including Darkest Depths, Skin Snatchers, and The Attic.
