Get ready to scream: Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Singapore is back after a two-year hiatus
The yearly ghostly affair at Universal Studios Singapore is back with more – besides the usual horror houses, visitors to the theme park can look forward to a new laser tag challenge, zombie scare zones and a horror-theme dining experience.
Universal Studios Singapore’s Halloween Horror Nights is finally back for its 10th edition this year. Its last instalment was in 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic. From Sep 30 to Nov 5, on selected nights, scare-seekers can explore three haunted houses, two scare zones, a laser tag challenge, a “horrifying” dining experience, among others.
In addition to its series of haunted houses, which fans of the popular Halloween event have come to expect, visitors can opt for add-ons (at extra cost), such as the Monsters & Manifestation (S$38) experience. The tour, hosted by a character called The Keeper, no less, takes a look at the technical magic that goes on behind the thrills.
Fans of laser tag and escape rooms will appreciate the laser tag challenge (S$38). Here, groups of five people have to band together to tackle puzzles to escape from blood-thirsty villains.
And this year, for S$105 a person, you can even share a somewhat macabre meal with “dead guests” at the theme park’s KT’s Grill restaurant.
HAUNTED HOUSES: ZOMBIES, SECRET MANSION AND MORE
Halloween isn’t quite Halloween without a horror house or two. Or three, as is the case at Halloween Horror Nights. This year's "headlining" house, Killustrator: The Final Chapter, was created as a tribute to some of the scariest moments from the event’s previous nine editions.
Plus, get ready to be scared out of your wits in a zombie apocalypse, and a tour of a luxurious – but haunted, obviously – mansion once home to a rich tycoon and his wife.
PONTIANAK AND ASTROLOGY-THEMED SCARE ZONES
What’s a horror night without scare zones? Keep your friends close as you explore two scare zones in the park. Astrology gets a horror twist with The Dark Zodiac, and you can also be part of a livestream challenge to trap the pontianak, a ghost synonymous with Southeast Asian folklore.
Halloween Horror Nights 10 will take place from Sep 30 to Nov 5 at Universal Studios Singapore, Resorts World Sentosa. You can buy your tickets here; regular tickets cost S$78 for peak nights and S$68 for non-peak nights, per guest.
