Universal Studios Singapore announces Halloween Horror Nights 5 details
Taking center stage at Halloween Horror Nights 5 will be a new chapter of True Singapore Ghost Stories 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.
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.
Over at Siloso Gateway Block 50, familiar scenes from the neighborhood 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.
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.
