    TS Scarefest: Saturday, 12th October 2019 - click to RSVP!

    Our Scarefest meet returns on Saturday, 12th October 2019. This totally informal, fun and social day will be a great chance to catch up with friends old and new, take on some of the park's rides, grab a beer, have a bite to eat and soak up the halloween atmosphere at Alton Towers!

    If you are looking for accommodation nearby Alton Towers, we're suggesting the Rugeley Travelodge or Rugeley Premier Inn. We'll be in The Plaza (Wetherspoons) on Friday evening before the meet on the Saturday (note: we won't be there on Saturday as by the time we're back from Alton Towers, it's usually very late).

    Maze Booking Slots

    Whilst not everyone will be doing all mazes at the meet, we are suggesting the following times. Please book these times or as close as possible to these times to ensure you can take part with the TS group!

    Darkest Depths: 6.30pm - £6 standard / £4.80 passholder

    The Attic: 4.00pm - £8 standard / £6.40 passholder

    3 Scare Maze Package (Project 42, Mine Tours & Sub Species): 2.00pm - £20 standard / £16 passholder




    We'll be meeting at 9.45am at the Box Office on Towers Street!

    Will be there with the family on Saturday. If I get round to sorting somewhere to stay I may even show my face in Rugeley for a Friday drinking catchup.

    We apologise for the delay in posting about Scare Maze booking. However, the Alton Towers website has not yet added the Annual Pass discount function to The Attic and Darkest Depths.

    Unfortunately due to a cock-up outside of my control, I won't be at this year's Scarefest meet :(

    Hey, I realise I don't post all that much but I've been meaning to come to a meet for far too long. It'd be great to meet people at the spoons beforehand but I'm wondering about getting to AT on the Saturday. Is it likely I'd be able to get a lift from the Travelodge with someone or are there shuttle buses like the ones from Stoke?

    It is hard to say - typically only a small number of the people going on the meet stay at Rugeley on the night prior to the meet. There aren't shuttle buses to/from the resort, although it is possible someone would be able to give you a lift.

    :)

    Hi, i’m new to the forum. Is this meet open to all? I have done scarefest with the same friend for years but she is disabled and no longer able to attend :-( I’d be coming on my own if it is ok. Im quite shy but it’d be great to meet new people that share my love for alton towers :)

    Good to hear. Im busy on the Friday night but would love to meet people there on the Saturday. How does it work with the mazes? Do we buy them individually or do the Admin’s do it so we go round together, and we then give them the money? Also how will I know what u all look like? Or will it be obvious due to group size when I get there? Sorry for all the questions. Haha

    In terms of mazes, we'll be posting times to book on this topic once the Annual Pass discount is available online. You'll then need to book that timeslot yourself (or the very closest you can) on the website. That's ultimately the easiest way of doing it, as maze tickets will likely sell out/be limited on the day of the meet.

    You'll normally spot us pretty easily at the meeting point (Box Office on Towers Street) - we're a fairly large group! Alternatively take a look at our meet pics over on Facebook to remember some faces. We'll normally spot you if you're stood around looking a little unsure though! We always keep an eye on our Facebook messages over the course of the day too, so if you're late or don't know where we are give us a shout on there and someone will reply :)

    Also not everyone will do the mazes, so if you aren’t a fan then there will be people who will just go off and do rides.

    If not the majority will do some or all of the mazes.

    I definitely want to do the mazes. Excited about the return of terror of the towers. It needed the reboot but I still missed it last year.

    Might make this as a first time meet, seeing as I have a free weekend it would be nice to meet some new faces! :)

    Will be at the Rugeley travelodge/premier inn and driving to Towers on Sat. Undecided about mazes yet.

    Just booked everything, looking forward to meeting everyone! I didn't book mazes because it was making me specify a time but I'll be up for them most likely.
