New “Sanctuary” Scaremaze for 2012 Scarefest
The Alton Towers Resortâ€™s annual Scarefest is back for 2012 with a new attraction that is set to give guests a taste of its latest ride coming to the X Sector area of the theme park in 2013. The Sanctuary will be a new scare maze that invites guests to book an appointment at an abandoned facility, but a terrifying twist awaits.
New developments on the X Sector site have uncovered an area of the Towers where human experiments were rumoured to have taken place in the early 1900â€™s by a controlling force known only as The Ministry of Joy. What starts out as an innocent visit through The Sanctuary soon takes a turn for the worse. Will you make it out with a smile on your face?
Katherine Duckworth, head of consumer marketing at the Alton Towers Resort, comments, â€śDetails of the new ride coming to the theme park in 2013 are still a closely guarded secret but we know that people are hugely excited about its arrival and want a hint of what is to come. The Sanctuary is set to make Scarefest more terrifying than ever, and give our guests the chance to experience a preview of our new ride before it opens to the public in March.â€ť
Scarefest 2012 will also see the return of old favourites including Terror of the Towers and travelling circus, Carnival of Screams. With the theme park open until 9pm every night, guests can experience a host of adrenalin pumping rides and attractions in the dark! For our younger guests, visit Franklynâ€™s Freaky Farm, meet the special Halloween characters and join Patch in his Trick or Treat Party Live on Stage.
Scarefest runs from 13-14thÂ and 19-31stÂ October at the Alton Towers Resort.
