Part One | Part Two | Part Three | MATI CAMP | Part Four


Since this is the final issue of Before Dark, let’s take a walk around the park.

◂ Minister of Evil ▸

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Minister of Evil's Stage

Changes are apparent at the Minister of Evil‘s stage. Apart from some modifications, a few of these tiny wooden boxes are scattered across the different tiers of the stage.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Opening Scaremony Props

This section of Hollywood is definitely part of the Opening Scaremony.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Minister of Evil - Backstage

Behind the grand stage, there are a lot of wiring and some tanks (pyrotechnic effects, perhaps).

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Minister of Evil - Backstage 2

Let’s not forget that complicated rigging happening above the stage, which is supposed to give flight to the Minister of Evil. Those wings don’t just grow out from his back for nothing.

How is he going to fly? Who knows.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Hollywood Lamps - Red Tints

The lamps along Hollywood were also modified with red covers – for that extra spooky look at night.

◂ Demoncracy ▸

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - DEMONCRACY - New York Street

The large props at Demoncracy received the “boiling lava” treatment, with flame ombré painted on the cracked asphalt surrounding the broken pieces of a city.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - DEMONCRACY - The Street 2

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - DEMONCRACY - The Street 3 / Minister of Evil appears

He’s always there.. watching.. judging.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - DEMONCRACY - The Street 4 / The Crack of Doom

More flame ombré. It would look great with backlit theatrical fog.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - DEMONCRACY - The Street 5 / The Crack of Doom 2

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - DEMONCRACY - The Street Display

There will be signage in this scare zone (and possibly others) to describe what it is.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - DEMONCRACY - The Street Display - Showtimes

Also, the schedule for the shows at Demoncracy will also be displayed at this board. Remember to check it out when you visit the park during HHN4.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - DEMONCRACY - Danger Fence

The dangerous electric fence, complete with Calibri Bold, returns.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - DEMONCRACY - Projectors

Projectors (for the effect at the New York Library) are up.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - DEMONCRACY - Equipment for Aerial Stunts

But check this out: Assortment of equipment for the aerial stunts in this scare zone.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - DEMONCRACY - Equipment for Aerial Stunts 2

Just imagine demons crawling up and down…

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - DEMONCRACY - Equipment for Aerial Stunts 3

And possibly glide and swoop around this whole area.

◂ Canyon of the Cursed ▸

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Canyon of the Cursed 1

We’ve seen most of the key props in Before Dark 3. After two weeks, there appears to be just minor additions and some adjustments of the props here.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Canyon of the Cursed 2 / Undead Horses

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Canyon of the Cursed 3 / Caravan

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Canyon of the Cursed 4 / Wagons and stuff

Most likely this zone would focus on the performance by the scare actors. The zombie cowboys and native american indians, that is.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Canyon of the Cursed 5 / The Temple

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Canyon of the Cursed 6 / Native American Indians' Domain

Interesting to note: There’s no stage here, so there won’t be a show like last year’s Convention of Curses. Maybe a flash war.

◂ Chill-Out zone at Sci-Fi City ▸

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Sci-Fi City Chillout Zone 1

Chill-Out zone is back this year. This is a “safe area” where guests can grab a drink and enjoy live music. It’s a place to escape from the scare actors (for a while…)

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Sci-Fi City Chillout Zone 2

Last year, the Chill-Out zone was filled with dancing aliens and zombies. Who knows if they decide to make an appearance this year.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Sci-Fi City Chillout Zone 3 / Mini-Store of Evil

You can also shop at the satellite Mini-Store of Evil, which has taken over Galactica PX while BSG is undergoing repair works.

◂ Scary Tales ▸

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Scary Tales 1

Things are looking Grimm at Scary Tales

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Scary Tales 3 / Projectors

The two projectors are installed.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Scary Tales 2 / Entrance

They will flash images or video onto the blank frame on the giant books here.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Scary Tales 4

The movable fences from Forbidden Forest have returned. They help to partition Jurassic Park into a proper scare zone, by blocking off the shops and Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure, which will not be available during HHN4.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Scary Tales 6

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Scary Tales 5

Hidden behind some of these fences are stone walls and windows.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Scary Tales 7

No idea what this is…

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Scary Tales 8 / Giant Spider

But I’m quite certain this is some giant insect. A spider, perhaps.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Scary Tales 9

There are a couple of big, tall props lying around that are covered in two layers of fabric. I wonder what’s so terrifying about them. The details of the exposed parts look good, though.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Scary Tales 10 / Pulley

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Scary Tales 11 The Cave

And now there is a cave.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Scary Tales 12 / Rapunzel's Tower

Rapunzel’s Tower is looking far more distressed.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Scary Tales 13 / Rapunzel's Tower Closer

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Scary Tales 14 / Rapunzel's Victim

She might have found ways… to better use her hair.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Scary Tales 15 / The Hut

There is this odd little hut at the entrance/exit to Waterworld. The window shows a silhouette of a woman. Is this Red Riding Hood’s home?

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Scary Tales 16 / The Hut

Anyway, given its quaint location, you won’t miss it after walking out of The L.A.B haunted house.

◂ Bogeyman ▸

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Bogeyman 1

No, I’ve not forgotten about the Bogeyman scarezone.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Bogeyman 2

The long barrier has been reduced, so we can look closer…

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Bogeyman 4

The clothes are so fresh, it even has fold marks on them. Will they be bloodstained and tattered after a few nights?

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Bogeyman 5

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Bogeyman 3

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Bogeyman 6

The mysteriously bouncy floor has been cordoned off.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Bogeyman 7

Will there be evil children jumping about here?

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Bogeyman 8

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Bogeyman 9

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Bogeyman 11 / Cupboards of Doom

The arrangements of the cabinets and cupboards have changed slightly. Almost all of them are “alive”. So be careful when you walk around this scare zone – you never know when the doors might just swing open…

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Bogeyman 10 / Hands

And what else might reach out of the closet…

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Bogeyman 12 / Scarecrows of Doom

Scarecrows united.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Bogeyman 13 / Shredded Cloth of Doom

◂ The Haunted Houses ▸

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Jing's Revenge Dramatic

The entrance to Jing’s Revenge is finally up. It is at the facade of the Rockefeller Building – the only place that makes sense, really.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Jing's Revenge Drama 2

I’m not sure if secondary schools of the past have ever delved into such advanced mathematics. No wonder the students became deranged.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - Jing's Revenge Locked Gates

The gates to the school compound are locked, so I guess I can only ask about it next week.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - MATI CAMP - Camp Gates

The entrance to MATI CAMP looks complete!

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - MATI CAMP / Protected Place Warning

Ah, even this sign.

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Singapore - Before Dark 4 - MATI CAMP / Show Pass without Demand

Please report to the guardhouse at MATI CAMP with your credentials to gain admittance.

    Hi,

    will tickets be available on the 3rd of Oct itself? I’m going to the park for both regular experiences and HHN, so I can just purchase tickets on-site in the morning?

    • K September 28, 2014 at 11:20 am #

      It’s hard to say whether the HHN4 ticket on the 3rd of Oct will be sold out on that day itself since it’s selling fast right now. You might want to book “Stay & Scream” online now – which includes regular daytime entrance as well as HHN4, along with an Express Pass to one attraction/haunted house except Canopy Flyer.

    The old wood house situated At the entrance of WaterWorld is a PS4 Game Experience by SONY PlayStation.. During all the nights of HHN4, we will be showcasing 2 NEW game titles!! Come and experience The Evil Within as well as The Last Of Us (remastered) !!
