ALTON Towers has revealed a horrifying new attraction this Halloween.

Called The Invitation, the audio experience takes place in darkness where guests go into a burial chamber.

The theme park explains: "Guests are invited to visit the Lakeside Cemetery mausoleum where the friendly funeral director is dying to meet you.

"Enter the vault to choose your final resting place but proceed with caution, you will not be alone, some caskets have already been filled and their occupants are keen to meet you."

Chris Carter, Events and Entertainments Director at Alton Towers Resort, said: "We are excited to bring a brand-new terrifying scare attraction to the event, as well as the return of our hugely popular scare mazes and family attractions.

"We remain committed to creating a much-needed form of escapism for families and thrill-seekers across the UK and beyond."
