If you thought last year’s instalment of Universal Studio Singapore’s Halloween Horror Nights was scary AF, wait till you step foot into Resorts World Sentosa this year.
From 27 September to 31 October, brace yourself for “infinite fear” at the eighth edition of the annual spook fest. With five haunted houses, three live shows and two scare zones, you’ll be treated to an endless cycle of horrifying thrills revolving around Asian and Western folklores. Here’s what you can expect at #HHN8.
#1 Channel your inner Eleven at the Stranger Things House
Watching Stranger Things through the screen is creepy enough, imagine wandering through the eerie surrounds of the Upside Down woods or getting chased by the Demagorgon monster. Bringing the fictional town of Hawkins to life, the thematic haunted house will feature a total of 12 artfully recreated scenes and storylines that will make you feel as if you’re Eleven herself.
#2 Escape from vampires in the world of Killuminati
This ain’t no Twilight story – you’re entering the Chinese secret society where bloodthirsty vampires existed for centuries, and it’s not gonna be an easy ride. This highly interactive battlefield will be packed with so many terrifying twists, turns and mysterious secret rooms that even the bravest souls will have a hard time sleeping at night…
#3 Visit Pontianak in her very own lair
If there’s an Asian folklore that accompanied us growing up, it’s the legend of the Pontianak. You’ll be setting foot into the hometown of the infamous vampiric ghost where you will watch the all-too-familiar scenes of the Pontianak unfold before your eyes – from the banana trees where she resides, to the laundry area where she sniffs out her next victim. Not for the faint-hearted!
#4 Get transported back in time to the Edo-era
Go back in time to the Edo period of Japan in The Haunting of Oiwa haunted house. Dedicated to the classic Japanese ghost story of Yotsuya, you will come face-to-face with a wrathful Lady Oiwa who returns from the dead seeking revenge after being poisoned by her unfaithful husband.
#5 Make it out of a zombie apocalypse
Because what better way to spend Halloween than killing hoards of the undead, amirite? Back by popular demand, the Zombie Laser Tag makes its comeback with an arena double the size – which means more zombies to fend off and greater obstacles to overcome. Do you have what it takes to get out alive? Guess you’ll just have to experience it to find out!
Note: The Zombie Laser Tag experience is available at an additional $38 per participant.
Other noteworthy highlights include a scare zone filled with ancient man-hunters, a Chinese-themed pagoda trapped with demonic creatures and floating spirits, as well as a series of original horror flims leading up to the nighttime event.
Early bird ticket sales will run from now till 12 August at $55 (non-peak) and $65 (peak), while standard event tickets are available at $58 (non-peak) and $68 (peak) each. Tickets can be purchased from the RWS website and/or at Universal Studios Singapore ticket booths.
