NEWS FROM ALTON TOWERS
The Alton Towers Resort has today launched ‘Extreme Apple Bobbing’ – a Halloween attraction with a difference that will see guests bob for apples in a shark tank. The unique attraction will be available at this year’s Scarefest event taking place from 15th – 31st October hosted at the Resort’s aquarium, Sharkbait Reef by SEALIFE, with resident sharks for company!
A first of its kind and available on request, guests visiting the Resort over Scarefest will have the opportunity to face their fears whilst plunging into the shark-infested waters for a selection of apples. A scary slant on the traditional Halloween favorite, the attraction is one of many interactive events taking place at Britain’s Greatest Escape this Halloween.
Guaranteed to be the most spooktacular yet, featuring favourites such as the Boiler House, Carnival of Screams and the infamous Terror of the Towers, guests will also be able to experience the theme park’s adrenaline pumping rides and family attractions until 9pm every night.
Katherine Duckworth, Head of Consumer Marketing at the Alton Towers Resort: “With Halloween preparations now well underway, we wanted to offer thrill-seeking families something bigger and better this year – so what better than old favourite apple bobbing, with a twist! For those too spooked to take to the shark-infested waters, we’ve also got a range of haunting horrors that cater for all ages this October.”
