Redefining the Horror and Gaming genre: Scarefest Partners with Daz Black

The Serotonin Team are going to Scarefest next month and this year promises to be a spine-tingling adventure like no other.

Daz Games: PANIC is set to blur the lines between an escape room and a live-action scare maze. It's the first of its kind, and we can't wait to dive into the heart-pounding action.

Picture this: you're handed a wristband and thrust into the depths of the attraction. Your mission? To uncover two mysterious symbols and make your escape within a nerve-wracking seven minutes.

But here's the catch – you won't be navigating this nightmare alone. Daz's cutting-edge AI technology has gone haywire, turning the maze into a nightmarish realm populated by faceless, Slender Man-esque beings. If you fail to make it out in time, you risk being trapped in the game forever. Talk about a game of life and death!

Daz Black himself is thrilled about this spine-tingling collaboration. He remarked, "It has been an incredible experience to mix gaming, horror, and theme parks to create a totally unique scare attraction for Alton Towers Resort. I am super excited to see it come to life, and I hope fans will both love it and be absolutely terrified at the same time."

But that's not all; the plot thickens! The wristbands featured in the spine-chilling trailer showcase the logo of Conductr, an attraction and experience design agency renowned for merging immersive physical experiences with cutting-edge technology. If you're a seasoned Alton Towers fan, you might recognise Conductr's involvement in the development of "The Curse at Alton Manor," the Resort's principal new attraction for 2023. This suggests that Pete Cliff, the former Entertainments Creative Director at Alton Towers, is making a spine-tingling return to Scarefest for the first time since his departure from Merlin in 2016.

In summary, Alton Towers Scarefest 2023 promises to be an unforgettable experience, thanks to the spine-chilling collaboration with Daz Black and Conductr. "Daz Games: PANIC" is set to redefine the horror and gaming genre, delivering a heart-pounding adventure that will leave you trembling with fear and excitement. It's a testament to how collaboration can breathe new life into attractions and draw in a fresh wave of thrill-seekers hungry for unique, hair-raising experiences.

So, if you're ready to face your deepest fears and immerse yourself in a world of horror, gaming, and heart-pounding thrills, Alton Towers Scarefest 2023 is the place to be. Get your wristbands ready, and prepare for a nightmarish adventure you won't soon forget!
