The Zombies scare zone is being marketed as being free for theme park visitors, but details surrounding the new Scary Tales zone are unclear.

Marking lingo for the new attraction says: “Once upon a time there was a tortured mind, which in the darkness was left to unwind.”

Meanwhile, Alton Towers has announced that its early ride time lineup for for eligible guests will feature the Air, Nemesis, Blade, Runaway Mine Train and CBeebies Land rides during September.
