House of Monsters

House of Monsters premiered at Scarefest 2016, and is Alton Towers' first ever scare maze targeted at a family audience.

The maze's storyline has guests as a group of online followers who have come to help a vlogger explore a spooky abandoned house after he has become convinced that monsters are real and lurk inside.

During the tour through the house, which lasts almost half an hour, guests encounter characters in different rooms and are set various interactive tasks before they can proceed to the next, all in an effort to free a guy called Frankie.

House of Monsters is perfectly pitched toward its target audience - kids seem to love it and really get involved and it never crosses the like from fun to scary. However, it hits the mark for a wider age range too, with pantomime-like humour and engaging actors to please adults in the group as well. It may be Alton's first attempt at a family scare maze, but it is already a triumph.
