Freaky Fun Zone

Franklyn and his friends have opened up their Freaky Fun Zone ready for some spooky fun. Just the trick for a treat this Halloween!

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.

Attraction History

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.

Gretyl's Spell School

(2018 onwards)

Fire up the cauldron and get your wand at the ready, as Gretyl the Witch opens up her classroom to teach budding spell-slingers the tricks of her trade.

What Halloween get together is complete without a party game or two. Join Phil and Franklyn on the main stage as they invite young guests to take part in some spooky games.

The invites have been sent out and Patch is looking forward to a spooktastic Halloween party. With a little help from his friends it is sure to be a graveyard smash!

Skelvin’s getting ready for Halloween but needs to choose his costume for the big day. Perhaps he can find some inspiration in one of his favourite stories.

Dr. Victor Henry Stein has arrived at the resort this Scarefest and his first experiment has seen the Freaky Five turned into their human counterparts and taking to the stage in this live music show.

Trick or Treat Stage

(2007 - 2017)

You are guaranteed a treat no matter which of the shows you catch on the Trick or Treat Stage...

If you've ever wanted to become an expert in scares then today is your lucky day! Enroll in Ghoul School and Phil and Franklyn will teach you everything they know.

Patch brings out his collection of brilliant bugs and let's all of his friends get up close and personal with a barnload of weird and wonderful beasties.

Patch loves getting creative and hopes you do too as he offers the chance to paint your own pot in the spookiest design you can.
