Alton Towers has released a brand new cryptic and creepy trailer for its upcoming ride to be launched in the spring.
The “Awakening Has Begun” trailer has been put out in anticipation of the "Secret Weapon 8" ride.
Work on developing the attraction began two years ago.
The 24 second trailer, which was aired on the Alton Towers' Facebook page, shows what appear to members of a cult claiming that “it is done” and “their saviour will select a chosen few from miles around”.
The post on the resort’s Facebook pages says: “The Beornen have marked the woods of Alton Towers as their own.
“Onlookers sense the excitement rippling through the trees as the winter air buzzes with nervous energy.
“In a clearing, a mountainous hand-built structure is taking shape, looming over the woods, its incandescent glow ominous yet mesmerising.
“Only the chosen few may enter. Be chosen.”
The resort previously released a trailer in November asking people to “be chosen”, as well as footage of the Secret Weapon 8 ride being built.
