Who: Me, Rich, Boychild (14) and Girlchild (12). Why: We were invited to see Scarefest and give our thoughts on the event... tada... After a pretty rubbish drive down we arrived at the resort just after 11am, we headed to the Monorail but with a queue stretching past the golf we decided to walk it. The new walk way (that is really for Rollercoaster Restaurant) looks brilliant, it then makes the rest of the walk to the park look ropey. So we were met at the Plaza and luckily (and generously) given tickets for the 3 mazes, House of Monsters, and a couple of ride specific fast tracks. Towers Street Looked really good, I loved the music and we were met by the ancestors who were hilarious even one joined us for a photo (which we totally bought) there seemed a real buzz around the place, which was great to see. We grabbed a couple of drinks and hopped on the Sky Ride over to Forbidden Valley Galactica I love the music in the area. We had fast-track to use, which would beat the 60min queue, so popped down the fast-track queue. Which sadly loses out on the photo ability and additional theming of the newly boxed in areas. Also even with fast track we had a 15/20 min wait. Loading - good god I see why its all so slow. Also Im not convinced a quick slap with a baby-wipe counts as cleaning but I suppose its better than nothing. I found the headset a bit cumbersome and not the easiest to fit on, same goes for Rich and Girlchild - who both had to adjust theres significantly. Beyond that... I am genuinely impressed with the ride. The music was great, graphics well done and timing perfect. Its clear to see this is (thankfully) more than just a gimmick and while Ive always loved Air and approached Galactica with some caution I am happy to admit I was wrong. If loading could be sped up Id be really impressed. Nemesis Myself and Girlchild couldn't miss what was advertised as a 15min queue for Nemesis which was actually 5. Almost walk on! Nemesis looks amazing, I didnt even really miss the red water. I did notice she's starting to run a little rougher, whether its end of season or showing her age... But certainly still one of the best coasters worldwide. Forbidden Valley...... Good Rollercoaster Restaurant looks brilliant, but was so busy we couldn't get near. Nemesis Gun looked in great knick. Bad Forbidden Sweep - NO, burn it. Sub Terra being closed looks bad. --- So we hopped onto Sky Ride again to Cloud Cuckoo Land Lunch was (warily) Burger Kitchen - you know what - it was good. Actually very good! Better than the last actual Burger King I had. Cloud Cuckoo Land, feels dead at the bottom where Driving School be. The Twirling Toadstool looks a state. Down by Charlie, which has haphazardly been covered off, looks like its ready for some Urban Exploring its that bad of a state. Also I noticed the old Cred Street Streetlight is still there, and hasn't been touched since it was installed. BUT Monster House beckoned us, with no queue, I was wary this was a bad sign. ***SPOILERS WITHIN*** You are met by a Vlogger who has been monitoring a house he's convinced is full of monsters and wants your help to prove it. You go into the house, he gets 'hypnostised' by the first monster in an amusing fashion, disappears and you're locked in the house -you need to find Ed to get out. All the characters you meet are descendants of the famous monsters of old (Dracula, The Mummy, Frankenstiens Monster et al) so recognisable but not scary. A couple of entertaining challenge rooms i.e. spell words out on a floor, dress some manakins in costumes and you end up in (my eyes) the best room. A huge, misty greenhouse, with a Mummy running it, who hates the smell of humans. You take a seat, he makes no bones of his dislike for you - getting a child participant and insisting on calling them the wrong name. Insulting peoples hair, and generally being hilarious. One Parent is called out to be made to 'smell better' (Rich in this case) - theres a hilarious shower scene where he throws bits at them "but not too many because of Brexit". Eventually he gets bored of you and his plants start to attack - leg tickers and sprinklers! You get to Eds scene, the final room - his american high school type girlfriend is there.They've um... been... experimenting. He's been shrunk and is missing, queue a room search to find him. Basic magic trick later and he's here, and like Elvis and the Fonz has a love child. He agrees to let you out, and you go off... To the actual Finale. A proper maze where the monsters are jumping out, popping out of fake wall areas etc. It gives just enough of a scare but with the familiar faces takes out the real scares. I applaud Towers for taking a risk, its cleverly done and pitched PERFECTLY. Its funny, silly, interactive and just right for families. Its a shame to see it quiet. The only reason I can think is the price, if you're visiting Scarefest in a group to mazes you all pay individually, so £20 for 3 mazes doesnt seem too bad. Come as a family and £20/£25 for one extra attraction seems a lot. It needs to turn a profit though and cant have been cheap to set up or run - I just hope it gets more attention.
