Hi, I went to Alton Towers at Halloween a couple of years ago. There tend to be cobwebs and stuff like that everywhere but most of the scary stuff stays in the mazes. The only place to avoid would be Gloomy Hollow or whatever it is called, can't remember it's exact name. Generally I would say it is fine.

Thanks :)

How scary are the mazes as i cant leave her outside :P and if anyone knows what is Duel Live like?

Sorry I've never been in the Alton Towers mazes. However if they are anything like the Thorpe Park ones I would advise you to definitely not take her on them. There will be more info about them at the park on the day. Just ask a member of staff what they think

Though the new promotional material I posted earlier doesnt refer to their being a 'World's First' element the newly updated 2010 page on the website does:

^ Looking at that website I wouldn't be surprised if they go ahead and call it "Demon", like how Project Stealth was just "Stealth". I've got no doubts about this with names like John Wardley and Intamin collaborating.

Did you try the link? It very specifically says:

"Want to find out more about our new World-first attraction opening March 2010?"

This kind of very clearly highlights that the new coaster will have some specific new element not available before.
