LAST week­end we went to Al­ton Tow­ers Re­sort to put their Scarefest Halloween mazes to the test. Here’s how we got on.

Af­ter a long jour­ney, we fi­nally ar­rived at Al­ton Tow­ers. As it was rain­ing, we de­cided to go swim­ming at the Splash Land­ings Ho­tel. We had a great time fir­ing the water can­nons, go­ing on the slides and whizzing round the lazy river.

Af­ter lunch, we made our way into the park. We man­aged to go on lots of the roller­coast­ers, in­clud­ing the amaz­ing Galac­tica ride, which sees you soar­ing off into space. We then headed back to the ho­tel to check in and have a rest.

Just be­fore it started to get dark, we made our way back into the park, and came across sev­eral zom­bies, who put on a spooky dance rou­tine.

This year there are lots of mazes to choose from; we went to the House Of Mon­sters one first. This one is best for those aged eight and un­der. You had to help a monster hunter dis­cover the truth about the mon­sters liv­ing in a dis­used house.

We also tried out the Al­tonville Mine Tours maze and un­cov­ered the leg­end of the Skin Snatch­ers. The Ter­ror Of The Tow­ers maze is set in the park’s tow­ers, and with the crazy monks, freaky mu­sic and all the twists and turns, you’ll def­i­nitely be scream­ing by the end of it. Th­ese mazes are for older chil­dren and par­ents.

Af­ter the mazes, we went on Rita, Neme­sis and Obliv­ion in the dark. It was scary to go on the roller­coast­ers in the dark, but so much fun.

We all had a scare-tastic time! For more in­for­ma­tion, visit al­ton­tow­
