We’re soon approaching that time of the year again, the time to unleash the spooks and let mayhem, fear and evil descend upon us. And this year, there’s no scarier fright night than at Universal Studios Singapore, with Halloween Horror Nights- which promises to be the largest Halloween event ever staged in Southeast Asia.
The team at Universal Studios Singapore is pulling out all the stops to make its inaugural Halloween Horror Nights the largest, most intense and most horrifying Halloween event ever produced. It’s definitely not for the fain-hearted.
After all, the event is modeled after the ever popular and successful events at our sister parks- Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood. In fact, the first Halloween Horror Nights began 21 years ago. Its popularity has soared to great heights ever since, resulting in the global sensation it is today.
We hear there’s a massive scare-labyrinth that include a brand new haunted house, multiple scare zones, a selection of Universal Studios Singapore’s theme park rides and attractions and a street party.
Welcoming guests to the event is the Director, a sadistic filmmaker who thrives on macabre movie-making and filming tortured subjects. He will greet guests as they enter through the looming gates. Once inside, guests will be cast for their final cut.
As guests navigate through the park, they will ‘step right up’ to a midway of mayhem, escape from the pandemonium-filled streets of a post-apocalyptic metropolis, and come face-to-face with deformed carriers of a flesh-eating plague.
The main attraction within the event is an elaborate haunted house – with an Asian twist. Located inside one of Universal Studios Singapore’s soundstages, guests will enter a dilapidated Peranakan mansion which, to this day, is still haunted by a demented matriarch.
The best part of the event is the fact that select rides and attractions, including Revenge of the Mummy®, Battlestar Galactica® and Accelerator, will be operating.
Halloween Horror Nights will run for seven nights over two weekends, from 21 to 23 October and 27 to 30 October 2011, from 8 pm to 12 midnight each evening. It’s going to be a separately ticketed event and not included within regular theme park admission. Do note that daytime theme park guests will be able to upgrade their daytime park admission tickets in order to re-enter the park for Halloween Horror Nights.
Tickets for the event, priced at S$60, will be available from 1 September 2011 onwards. Special ‘RIP Tour’ packages, Resorts World Sentosa hotel guest specials and group discounts are also available. Discounts are also available for Universal Studios Singapore annual pass holders and daytime theme park guests.
