The best Halloween experience yet, Universal Studios Singapore serves up their most intense experience in their 4th instalment of the signature event in Resort World Sentosa.
It is practically impossible to finish all the 4 movie-quality and immersive haunted houses and scare-zones from 7.30pm to 1.30am. You will have to beat the crowd and queues, and also strategize on the houses that you will want to visit first. Heads up, we give you the highlights of each haunted house and the scare-zones. Each of it comes with a different scare theme; this is where you need to strategize on which to go first!
Jack’s 3-Dementia (Sound Stage 28)
Highlight: The “bridge” near the end of the house is the most impressive highlight of the house – people with vertigo may find it a little disorienting.
Jing’s Revenge (Sound Stage 28)
Highlight: Nearing the end is a surprise – you will eventually find out Jing’s fate. It is both disheartening and disturbing.
Mati Camp (Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure Back-of-House)
Highlight: The lighted walkway towards the end is a path of uncertainty.
The L.A.B. (WaterWorld, entry via Scary Tales)
Highlight: The grisly meat train segment, where it plays hard on your claustrophobic fears and stomach for gory images.
There will be scare zones here and there around the premise itself. Most of them are not as scary probably because of its open concept where there is a larger space for you to roam and run around. It is also a place where you can actually take flash photography with friends and family. The scare zones are namely Demoncracy (New York), Bogeyman (Sting Alley), Canyon of the Cursed (Ancient Egypt) and Scary Tales (Lost World).
Jack’s Nightmare Circus (Pantages Hollywood Theatre)
A thoroughly engaging visual fest, the circus offers aerial acrobats, contortionists, extreme stunt specialist and more. Expect a blend of fun and fear as each act brings you the different form of entertainment. You will either be cheering in awe or squirming in pain!
Show times: 8pm, 10pm, 12am
Halloween Horror Nights 4, #HHN4, will be held on October 3-5, 10, 11, 17, 18, 22-25, 31 and November 1. Come early as there may be restrictions to number of people into Universal Studios to cope with the crowd and queues. There will be a retail outlet dedicated to some memorabilia of #HHN4, from tees to lanyards, to “skull bottles” to “blood bags”!
