A member of the audience was invited on stage by Jack, who has some tricks up his sleeve.

He became Jack’s newest plaything – almost like a ragdoll…

“YOU! I SAID BEND!”

The boy continues to bend and contort his body, making the audience wince as he twists his body dramatically. Some of Jack’s girls attempt to show off their flexibility…

Reluctantly, the duo skaters were forced by Jack to spin on a small dish.

Jack raises the stakes: The skaters perform increasingly complicated moves.

Verging towards death-defying…

The dance finale uses Beatfreakz’s Superfreak and a segment of Knife Party’s Internet Friends (VIP). It then goes back to the remix of Pharrell Williams’ Happy that has been interspersed throughout the show. Does anyone know which exact remix is that?

    What’s that song “Line them up! Line them up!” played during the show. Love that song.
    By the way, your reports on USS are very informative. Are you the official reporter for USS? Do you get paid for it?

    • Dejiki October 8, 2014 at 8:31 am #

      That song is a remix of Fatboy Slim’s My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up).

      No, I do not get paid for blogging, and I am not working for Universal Studios Singapore or RWS. It would be a dream to work there someday.

    I have seen the performance twice now. It’s wonderful. The Italian spinning performance is so awesome and Jack’s joke never gets old. Not to mention you always get to see more details the more time you seen the performance. For example, I did not notice Frankenstein was actually doing some kind of mini dancing with his finger the first time I see the performance, I only noticed that on the second viewing.

    Although I am sad this will be over along with HHN4, I don’t mind as long as USS can bring new show of the same level next year! They surely have raised the bar this year. That, and I’m wondering what they will bring to replace Monster Rock.

    I saw this! The girl with the balloon reminds me of Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz and maybe also Alice from Alice in Wonderland.

    Jack reminds me of Beetlejuice, and the male performer as part of the Italian pair looks familiar… I wonder if he’s the same guy who plays the Scorpion King over at Ancient Egypt.

    I really like this jacks nightmare circus show!!! OMG! Can’t believe USS actually brought in such nice good stuffs! I would definitely be more happy if they were to replace monster rock with something similar to this rather than the current one.. (you should know which show I meant)

    Anyways, I did not managed to catch the rope performance that you did, instead during the show I went, it was replaced with a guy who can bends a lot. 🙁 But then, the Italian spinning couple was really astonishing! The highlight for me! I wouldn’t mind watching it more than once! However, Gordo’s performance was really… It would had been good if there were photo taking sessions with the casts after the show like monster rock in the past. But I guess it will be too tiring for them, and means lesser rest for them (or one less showtime). Aww..

    Off the topic, I noticed that all the haunted houses (including Boogeyman scare zone) this year, uses many water sprays. Can’t believed that I got water on me for every of them.. Other than that, it kind of amazes me that MATI camp had stairs inside.

    Just want to end off telling you that I really enjoy all of your posts regardless it is on theme parks or cafes! Thanks for all these informative updates and the HQ pictures!
