Alton Towers is the best of them. THough you have to travel up there and it's best to stay somewhere for the night. So it can be costly and put your friends off going.

Thorpe Park is very fun, and I imagine Stealth at night time would be mega-scary. It will be full of teenagers though (which puts me off, lol) and bear in mind that both will be PACKED for Halloween.

For sure check!

Thorpe Park being close to London is good, but Alton Towers is easily the better park.

But you need to go to Alton Towers in school time else its WAY too busy, and you will need a car and a hotel to stay in with its location. Taxis cost us £25 each way to and from Stoke!

But there is a BRILLIANT monkey forest up in that region too : )

Agh well weekends are no better than going on halloween to he honest. Especially if it's the last weekend.

(I used to work at Chessington World of Adventures, which is why I am a font of knowledge on this lol)
