Darkest Depths

Alton Towers
2019 - 2021

Enjoy some extra-spooky swashbuckling aboard ‘The Mutiny’, a notoriously spine-chilling ghost ship. Avoid the hazardous calls of the treacherous Sirens, dodge the swords of terrifyingly ghoulish pirate mutineers and come face to face with the Kraken!


Darkest Depths returns to the Seven Seas for another year of sailing, this year the attraction has had its age limit changed from advised 12+ to 15+. With the age change, this meant that the actors were freer to do jump scares and up the intensity of the attraction, obviously when a group of adults go through it will be scarier than if a family still chose to go through the attraction. The maze remains the same as previous years but with a slight change at the ending and a lack of mermaids this year? Unless we hit the maze during a cast change or break. We really enjoyed Darkest Depths but with the maze being permanently set up it means the layout remains the same each year. We would love to see the park shake up the mazes and change the layout of theming each year.
