The traditional Halloween hearse makes an appearance at the end of Towers Street in mid-August, promoting the event to guests.

A closer look at the hearse.

The four Halloween characters are here: outside the hearse are Skelvin, Phil and Patch, and inside is Franklin.

On the back are flags with the modified Halloween logo on.

The event is under way! Towers Street is appropriately decorated for the occasion.

Skulls and pumpkins are the order of the day.

A spider sits atop a cauldron, at the bottom of Towers Street.

The hearse has now been surrounded by creepy giant hands.

The ATTV show in the Cred Street Theatre had a Scarefest makeover for the event.
07_scarefest_16.jpg
The laser show played to crowds in Her Ladyship's Gardens, by the exit of Hex.
07_scarefest_17.jpg
The show was a nice addition, and utilised the same equipment normally brought out for the Fireworks event.
07_scarefest_18.jpg
The music tracks used were along a 'spooky' theme.
07_scarefest_19.jpg
Lasers also projected images onto the Towers, which provided a wonderful arena for the show.
07_scarefest_20.jpg
The laser show lasted around 15 minutes.
07_scarefest_21.jpg
Over at the Hotels, the banks lining the road down to the ATH were also decorated.
07_scarefest_22.jpg
A coffin also lines the route.
07_scarefest_23.jpg
Some great decoration next to the Alton Towers Hotel reception, representing the fallen branch from the Hex storyline.
07_scarefest_24.jpg
The corridor/queue line area for the hotel maze, Room 13.
07_scarefest_25.jpg
Outside, the new maze Field of 1000 Screams proved extremely popular.
07_scarefest_26.jpg
The size of the corn field was astounding.
07_scarefest_27.jpg
In the distance, you can see the pumpkin-headed scarecrow that was put in the maze months ago.
07_scarefest_28.jpg
The shop next to the queue line was also themed, which was another nice touch.
07_scarefest_29.jpg
The Altonville Store was quite popular at night, when the queue for the maze was sometimes well over an hour.
07_scarefest_30.jpg
The entrance sign, complete with "scare rating" at the bottom.
07_scarefest_31.jpg
The guidelines for the maze.
07_scarefest_32.jpg
The entrance to the maze, which is closed off during the day.
07_scarefest_33.jpg
The entrance area.
07_scarefest_34.jpg
Looking across the field, you can see one part where guests have to crawl under obstacles.
07_scarefest_35.jpg
The exit of the maze from the 'farmhouse'.
07_scarefest_36.jpg
A crashed car forms part of the second scene.
07_scarefest_37.jpg
The building, which guests actually enter twice during the maze - but it's done in such a way that you think it's two different buildings.
07_scarefest_38.jpg
Another look at the crashed car.
07_scarefest_39.jpg
Also running during Scarefest were special "Scare Rooms" in the hotel. This is the corridor where the rooms were located.
07_scarefest_40.jpg
Inside, normal rooms had been redecorated to reflect the theme.
07_scarefest_41.jpg
A picture, which changed depending on where you looked at it, from a pleasant little girl to a skeletal alternative!
07_scarefest_42.jpg
Cobwebs lining the mirror.
07_scarefest_43.jpg
A skull sat atop the TV.
07_scarefest_44.jpg
A Bible was provided, complete with bloody hand prints.
07_scarefest_45.jpg
A torture chair sat in the corner, which was used as the "finale" when actors would do a mock execution of another actor, in front of the room's guests.
07_scarefest_46.jpg
More decoration on the walls. Guests had to sign a form upon arrival agreeing to give up their rights to sleep until after 2am.
07_scarefest_47.jpg
The actors had many tricks up their sleeves, including being able to dim or cut the rooms' lights from outside. They also had a key to all the rooms, so locking the door wouldn't help!
07_scarefest_48.jpg
The bathrooms were really gruesome, with bloody hand prints everywhere.
07_scarefest_49.jpg
A closer look at the bathroom decoration.
07_scarefest_50.jpg
The shower also featured its fair share of blood.
