The Attic: Terror of the Towers:
Returning for its 3rd season is The Attic. Here is the description of this maze. Around here, people talk of the Governess – how she’s haunted by the death of her young charges, how she wants revenge, and how she’ll take it by seizing the spirits of the living in retribution. They say her ghost haunts The Attic. That’s where you’re headed. Dare you risk your immortal soul?
Altonville Mine Tours:
The ‘Skin Snatchers’, we call them. Outcasts, their whole family. Rumours are they lived in that old mine. It’s deep and dark and the damp inside gives you the proper shivers. Just recently some fool reopened it – for tours! Be careful: they say those Skin Snatchers have a secret too horrifying for words. Beauty’s only skin deep. Remember that.
Freak Show: Toxic Junkyard:
The newest of the returning mazes to join this year’s line-up is The Freak Show. This maze was brand new for last year and here is the description of the maze. After being hunted and chased away, the last of the Freak Show have gone into hiding, plotting in secret their next “BIG SHOW”. What for years appeared to be an old junkyard actually hides the secret that turns “townies” into evil carnies… Dare you volunteer to help stop their evil plan? Careful not to be captured though, or YOU will become the main attraction of the next show.
The family scare maze of the lineup is returning for yet another season and we can’t wait to experience it all over again. Get ready for a terrifying new adventure aboard ‘The Mutiny’, a notoriously spine-chilling ghost ship. You’ll truly earn your golden Piece of Eight by venturing into the darkest depths, avoiding the hazardous calls of the treacherous Sirens, dodging the swords of terrifyingly ghoulish pirate mutineers and coming face to face with the Kraken – the legendary monster of the seas!
Brand new for 2021 is Trick’O’Treat Town which is aimed for the families to enjoy. Here’s some more detail about this latest addition to the lineup. This Scarefest get ready to explore a special town where every day is Halloween! And do you know what’s the townsfolk’s favourite past time? Yes, you got it! It’s to host Trick-or-Treating for the town visitors! So, muster up your courage and prepare to knock on doors from Spooky Avenue all the way up to the Witchy Woods but be careful! As well as treats there are tricks aplenty!

The Alton Towers Dungeons:

Will you be found guilty by the Bishop of Stafford, survive a visit to the Plague Doctor and make it out of The Witch of Burslem’s Cottage?

Who knows you might have phant…astical company on the way!
