Freaky Fun Zone
Alton Towers' frightfully funny foursome have a new friend this year. Gretyl the Witch joins the park's Halloween mascots as they come out to play at this most spooktacular time of the year.
Whilst Franklyn takes the helm at the Fun Zone, all of his friends have come with him and are once again hosting a variety of attractions in Fountain Square. When not of stage the Freaky Five can also be found meeting and greeting their young friends or lending a hand in the judging of the park's daily Halloween Costume Competition.
As construction for Cbeebies Land got under way in 2013, Franklyn moved out of his Freaky Farm and across the park to Fountain Square to the new Freaky Fun Zone. The relocation also brought the Trick or Treat Stage into the heart of the Fun Zone bringing all the attractions much closer together.
No attractions were lost during the move from the farm but a couple were rebooted, with the Freaky Farm Talks becoming Patch's Brilliant Bug Barn and the Creepy Pottery Barn becoming Patch's Pottery Painting.
After two years in Fountain Square, for the 2015 Scarefest the Fun Zone was moved to a more prominent position at the foot of Towers Street. As part of the move both the Bug Barn and Pottery Painting were removed from the line up.
