THRILL-SEEK­ERS hop­ing to take on Al­ton Tow­ers’ Wicker Man ride are in for a spook-tac­u­lar time as the roller­coaster opens up for the first time at night.

New frights and fam­ily de­lights have been un­veiled for this year’s Scarefest at the theme park – in­clud­ing the first night ride for the re­sort’s £16 mil­lion at­trac­tion.

A spokesper­son for Al­ton Tow­ers said in a Face­book post: “Are you ready to be cho­sen?”

It reads “For the first time, feed Wicker Man’s flames as they light up the night sky un­til 9pm dur­ing the UK’s ul­ti­mate Hal­loween event... Be cho­sen to ex­pe­ri­ence #Wick­erManRide in the dark this Scarefest!”

The six-storey wooden roller­coaster is the first ride of its kind to open in the UK in the last 20 years.

Open un­til 9pm each day, Scarefest at Al­ton Tow­ers also gives guests the chance to go on rides in the dark in­clud­ing Neme­sis and the Smiler.

A new CBee­bies Land Mon­ster Ball also awaits fam­i­lies as they get the chance to have some scary fun with their favourite CBee­bies friends.
