About Alien Apocalypse |

The time has come for the last phase of the aliens’ attack in the dark, claustrophobic corridors of the Arches basement: with only one weekend left before the Arches’ celebrated scare attraction ends for good, we will be stepping up the terror level to 11 as we invite Glasgow’s bravest thrillseekers to take on the ultimate challenge.

Entering the Arches basement in groups of up to 10 people, willing victims will be led through the space where recent sightings of an unknown species have recently been reported – expect to leave trembling, if at all.

This really is The Final Encounter: there are only four more days left to experience this uniquely terrifying experience before it ends for good on Sunday 14th April.
