Prepare yourself for a night of frights at this year’s Scarefest at Alton Towers Resort

For the Halloween thrillseekers among you, the Alton Towers Resort always offers up a chilling experience.

This year, the theme park has taken their annual Scarefest one step further, offering visitors the chance to spend the night in the ruins of the gothic Towers and experience the terror that lies within the historic walls on the Ultimate Sleepover.

"We want to offer our guests an experience like no other – we are constantly striving to provide visitors with something totally out of the ordinary and the Ultimate Sleepovers are certainly different," says Katherine Duckworth, spokesperson for the resort.

"Alton Towers is famous for its historic ruins that date back to the 1800’s and for the first time, we are opening the doors for the public to spend the night inside. But watch out as there will definitely be some surprises in store. Plus with old favourites returning, Scarefest is definitely going to be bigger and better for 2014!"

If you're not quite brave enough for the Ultimate Sleepover, the park still offers The Sanctuary, a frightening favourite experience that guides visitors through a burnt-out hospital for 'refreshing check-up with terrifying twists'...

And the Terror of the Towers once again reveals its dark and horrifying secret to those who dare to enter.

Scarefest runs from 18th October to the 2nd November, with a 9pm ride close for brave ones wanting to ride in the dark. Visit for more information and to book.
