Are you ready to join us at this year’s terrifyingly fantastic Scarefest with spooks, frights and thrills for everyone? This unmissable experience takes place on selected dates in October when the Resort becomes home to Halloween. Open until late so you can enjoy your favourite rides in the dark! As the nights get shorter, Scarefest beckons. On October's spookiest dates, tiptoe into Alton Towers Resort for all sorts of creepy scares and shocks as its award-winning Scarefest returns for 2021 with live entertainment for all ages. Open until 9pm each day daring guests can face our head-spinning, hair-raising rides and attractions in total darkness including Wickerman and the Alton Towers Dungeon! If that’s not scary enough, we have our award-winning line up of live action mazes for thrillseekers. There really is something for all the family to enjoy, so take in the spooky sights, music and street theatre and have some spine-tingling fun!

5th – 7th November

What does this mean? It means spectacular sights, incredible sounds – and making sure you book well in advance to avoid missing out on this amazing experience. Every year, we welcome families and thrill seekers of all ages to our spectacular fireworks. Our fireworks event has always been popular with locals from Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire; but we’re fast becoming known as one of the best fireworks displays in the UK! Hosted on the closest weekend in November, our Bonfire Night fireworks events span three whole days! Be sure to book in advance to avoid missing out. Because it’s much more than whizz-bangs. Our Fireworks nights provide a final chance to enjoy our mind-blowing, heart-pounding, record-breaking rollercoasters, rides and family attractions before we bid our season goodbye. And because we’re open late for the fireworks, you can ride our coasters in the dark for extra scares, screams and shrieks. For a truly head-spinning, mega-grinning experience, book your ticket today! What’s more, as the theme park stays open late for the fireworks display, you can even ride in the dark!


Coming This December

Get ready to celebrate the most magical, wonderful time of year with Santa's Sleepover or a day-visit to our brand new Christmas markets!
