For adventurous trick or treaters, there are Trick and Treat Doors which open to many interesting surprises. Kids will also get to meet the friendly resident spooks of Alton Towers namely: Frank, Phil, Skelvin and Patch. By the end of the day, a laser light show aptly called Fright Lights will be presented to mark the event.
For the slightly older kids, there is a live Halloween TV special on Cred Street. Games and all sorts of fun activities will be held there so don’t miss the excitement. For those who are itching for an adventure, visit the Haunted Hollow where unearthly former residents and a gravedigger haunt the place.
