    I personally would have preferred to have the first weekend of October as Scarefest as oppose to having the Oktoberfest. With less scarefest days, it really don't leave me much option for visiting scarefest, leaving not many quiet days to choose from and an increase chance of visiting on a non alcohol day

    Better still, they'll let you ride it with a raw sausage and you can cook it as you "feed the flames".......

    It's going to be an expensive job to get plastered on Becks Vier.

    I'd like to think Alton Towers will outsource this to a company that can do it justice. That would be the best way to guarantee success and allow them to bring the event back next year even bigger and better.

    If they try to do this but only serve the usual pißwasser then nobody will come back next year.

    It’s too early to say how they are going to pitch the actual event but Towers will never advertise something as a “**** up” as it will attract too much attention from media and ultimately this is a family resort.

    Just booked the Splash Landings hotel for Fri 25th for £165 for 5 people (MAP discount). I thought that was a bargain at only £33 per person!

    Umm, can they really complete the
    (front facing) scarefest prep in only 5 days?

    Regardless,
    I'm still excited to see this event, but...highly anticipated sbno mazes + after dark closing + alcohol...all in a giant mansion, constructed almost entirely out of hiding places...it kind of seems like a bad combination...

    They only do the non maze theming the week before the event anyway. If they are doing lighting then that can be prepped during Octoberfest.

    Not sure if it's been mentioned before but Towers has confirmed that standard and premium AT season passes are valid for Oktoberfest
