    Seriously?! With reduced capacity they will sell out fast. :(

    Yeah, I kind of expected it this year though to be honest.

    3pm - 6pm ?? :tearsofjoy:

    Those can't be the finalised maze opening times. Literally why even bother?

    More likely those initial time slots have been put on sale to gauge demand and determine the finalised opening times. Something like Toxic Junkyard in particular is going to be significantly better, and more popular, after dark.

    I doubt thats correct... Surely they won't ONLY open the outdoor maze in the day, especially when they have the garden light walk thing going off after dark...reiiiight?

    What date are you booked, they might be opening less hours on some days?!

    ...maybe...

    Would half term Sat-Sun or Sun-Mon be better for queuing times?

    Bit odd promo to make when we already know what the new maze is and it’s already being promoted online.

    More crap promo from Towers then. That video looks so cheap and unprofessional, especially the massive Attic logo with a black background and then that text right at the end as though they've just nabbed it off Google.

    Along with Oktoberfest material, it makes you wonder who's approving this stuff.

    I can only guess half of towers Marketing are still Furloughed or Merlin have made most of them redundant Judging by the awful marketing (or lack of it) we’ve had all season.

    Just had a look at maze tickets, and it looks like Darkest Depths is the only one that can be bought separately. The others can only be booked as part of the 3 maze deal. Have they done this before or is this different?

    Single maze tickets have only been available to purchase at the Box Office the last few years.(Except Darkest Depths).

    If I go this year I'd probably only want to do DD and Attic, but I'd have to buy the 3 mazes ticket and DD ticket with admission. Suppose I could be brave and do all the mazes but it's very expensive. I could buy DD in advance and Attic on park but there's the risk that it could sell out.

    They might release single maze tickets closer to the time, but to early to tell right now.

    Yeah possibly, but I just remembered that Attic was available separately last year along with DD, so because two mazes from the deal have gone and a new one is added, they've added Attic to make it three.

    Interesting that Darkest Depths is behind Dark Forest this year. I never did it last year, but am I right in thinking it's where Zombies Scare Zone from 2011-2013 (approx) used to be?

    Does anyone know how to book tickets for the mazes? We already have day tickets booked, so can't book the slots via booking a day ticket, as we already have them! :)

    If that's true then It's really odd, as DD pirate-themed so fits Mutiny Bay :confused:

    The courtyard looks set to be used for Oktoberfest, in which case Darkest Depths would have to be relocated, Dark Forest seems as good a place as any.
