The World’s First-Ever Haunted Dolls House
Whenever Alton Towers launch a new ride or attraction there are always some clever marketing tactics deployed to help promote it. Again, this was the case with The Curse at Alton Manor, the Manchester Mural is not the only unique piece of marketing material.
A couple of weeks prior to the ride launch, unsuspecting members of the public were given a hair-raising experience as they braved the world’s first-ever haunted doll’s house.
The mysterious attraction appeared on London’s Isle of Dogs as Alton Towers Resort revealed that its eerie new dark ride The Curse at Alton Manor would begin spooking visitors from March 18th 2023.
Waves of adults and brave youngsters formed at the pop-up as those who dared cross its threshold were confronted by a series of supernatural clues and teasers of what awaits when the immersive dark ride opens. The experience culminated in the first sighting of Emily Alton – the child from the original haunted house, whose demonic exploits inspired the ride.
The Curse at Alton Manor features special effects that are a first for a UK theme park – from twisted projection mapping technology that transports riders into Emily’s own dollhouse, to mirrors that play tricks by blurring the line between reality and Emily’s demonic world.
Pay a visit to Alton Towers Resort and uncover the secrets of Emily Alton’s transformation from a once sweet and curious child to a vessel of evil.
