Universal Studios Singapore (USS) is bringing you familiar ghost stories from your childhood for its latest Halloween Horror Nights 5. Remember the True Singapore Ghost Stories series? A brand new untold chapter will be taking center stage at USS Halloween Horror Nights 5. Inspired by horror stories on the train, an epidemic-stricken HDB block, a hell house featuring paper effigies, as well as the event’s first ever dark house. Starting from 2 October 2015, Halloween Horror Nights 5 will run for 14 nights across five weekends. Tickets are now on sale.
Halloween Horror Nights 5 is Singapore’s only fully-immersive Halloween experience and this year’s event will take even more of a local twist, bringing fear even closer to heart. Expect to see familiar scenes and folklore in three locally themed haunted houses with the fourth house featuring an intense underground experience. The theme for Southeast Asia’s iconic Halloween event this year surrounds the rise of the blood moon, which will spread destruction to life as we know it.
Halloween Horror Nights 5 will feature four haunted houses and three scare zones throughout the theme park. Headlining the haunted houses this year is True Singapore Ghost Stories: The MRT, in collaboration with local ghost writer, Russell Lee. This haunted house will feature familiar characters cast in an original storyline created just for Halloween Horror Nights 5 and inspired by tales of paranormal sightings on the train. It will be a ride like no other as Pontianak and Toyol make an appearance.
“True Singapore Ghost Stories is quintessentially Singaporean and I am elated that Universal Studios Singapore has developed this exciting new dimension to the book series. The storyline for the haunted house is inspired by reports of paranormal sightings on trains, and fans can expect to see characters from the pages of the True Singapore Ghost Stories transform into reality. The creative team behind Universal Studios Singapore’s Halloween Horror Nights has mounted a spirited effort in this undertaking and I am sure fans are just as excited as I am to hop on board this train ride,” adds Russell Lee.
Over at Siloso Gateway Block 50, familiar scenes from the neighbourhood are injected with a sinister twist as a virus outbreak turns residents into flesh-ravaging vultures. The gates of hell will open once again at Hell House as paper effigies rule and guests journey through the Underworld. Tunnel People, the event’s first ever dark house, will have guests feeling their way through the fortress of the Tunnel People in darkness.
The immersive scare zones this year include Hungry Ghosts at The Lost World zone – a hidden village with cursed villagers doomed to go through rites and prayers every day; conTERMINATED at Sting Page 2 of 4 Alley – a quarantined sector where forsaken and diseased inhabitants fight for their survival; as well as The Invaders at the New York zone – where a meteor-like alien space probe crashes into Earth and its extra-terrestrial inhabitants take over.
Having visited USS Halloween Horror Nights over the years, this edition did not disappoint. We loved how it has localised its scare contents to strike fear using familiar horrors that are so close to the hearts of Singaporeans. This is so wicked!
