13 pointers for Halloween Horror Nights 5

Universal Studios Singapore’s Halloween Horror Nights 5 (HHN5) starts this Friday. Get ready for fourteen nights of terror.

Here are some tips to bear in mind to make your night with us a screamtastic one.

1. Learn the background story of the houses and zones


Know the background story of our four haunted houses and three scare zones to get into the mood.

The haunted houses at HHN5 are True Singapore Ghost Stories: The MRT, Siloso Gateway Block 50, Hell House and Tunnel People.

The scare zones at HHN5 are The Invaders, conTERMINATED and Hungry Ghosts.

2. Kill time in queues with USSHHN5 mobile game


Ever wanted to experience HHN’s haunted houses on your phone? The USSHHN5 games does just that. Fight off evil ghouls from the different haunted houses on your mobile device.

It’s also useful to play the game while you’re queuing. The Android version of the USSHHN5 game is available on Google Play now while the iOS version will be out soon.

3. Bring the most important accessory for the night…

Runes in Tunnel People

Your power bank! You’ll need your phone for photo-ops in our scare zones. Strike a pose next to aliens, deformed residents of a quarantine zone, and ghosts of Chinese villagers.

4. Thrill to the world’s tallest roller coasters after dark

Battlestar Galactica: HUMAN vs. CYLON will be taking to the night skies for the first time since its return. Other rides like Puss In Boots’ Giant Journey and TRANSFORMERS The Ride: The Ultimate 3D Battle are also open.

5. Come as you are, sans costume and mask – with one exception

Yes, you may wear a haze protection mask/respirator to the event. However, it should be placed in the lockers along with other loose articles before you hop on Revenge of the Mummy and Battlestar Galactica: HUMAN vs. CYLON.

6. Have a drink with supernatural being


Located in Ancient Egypt, the Beast Club is an out-of-this-world bar where you imbibe intoxicating beverages alongside all kinds of ghouls, demons and freaks.

7. Beat the heat

Not something you'd want to wear at HHN5. Find this person at Hell House.

Just because this is an after-dark event, doesn’t mean you’ll be spared the humidity and heat. Dress lightly with comfortable shoes for walking. Water may be sprayed at you at one haunted house, and another has squishy floors and dank walls – so consider yourself warned!

8. Catch the Opening Scaremony

Don’t miss the Opening Scaremony. It starts at 7.30pm on event nights, next to Lake Hollywood and is a show telling you why all hell broke loose for Halloween Horror Nights 5.

If you don’t care about the story, you may want to be there to at least catch the pyrotechnics. Or you could beeline to your favourite scare attraction to be the first one in queue. If you miss the Scaremony the first time, you’ll have to come again on another night.

9. Pick up the 2015 Survival Guide

Conveniently located everywhere throughout the park, it’s a handy reference for everything you need to know about the event: the  haunted houses, the scare zones, the map, the food and the merchandise.

10. Save your children from nightmares

Children under 13 are not advised to come to Halloween Horror Nights 5.

11. Investing in a Halloween Horror Nights Express

Tickets for this year are selling much faster than the last, and prices of Halloween Horror Nights Express for many dates have already risen above S$50. If you intend to purchase, do it now before prices rise further.

12. Respecting the scare-actors

Scare actors won't touch you but these hands would.

Deafening them with your screams is enough, let’s not get physical. No matter how close our scare-actors come up to you, rest assured they will never come into actual contact under any circumstances.

13. Getting home after the event

The RWS8 bus will be running until 3.30am, and will drop you outside VivoCity/HarbourFront. There should be a steady stream of taxis available too.
