A frightfully good event for parents and children alike this Halloween is the annual Scarefest at the Staffordshire resort of Alton Towers, running from 13th-14th and 19th-31st October.
Irish Ferries Holidays is offering a three-night stay with breakfast in the nearby Holiday Inn Express Hotel for €415 return for a car and family of two adults and two children under 12 years. The price includes one full-day entry pass to the park.
As its name suggests, Scarefest is a white knuckle experience with rides such as Carnival of Screams, Terror of the Towers, The Boiler House, Trick or Treat Doors, Sklevin’s Haunted Adventure and a new scare maze. For the younger guests there’s Franklyn’s Freaky Farm with Patch’s Pumpkin Party.
Bookings must be made by 13th October.
