Halloween Horror Nights 5 – Siloso Gateway Block 50

Halloween Horror Nights 5 Haunted House - Siloso Gateway Block 50 / The Block Ultra Clear

The Blood Moon has infected the waters at Siloso Gateway Block 50, turning residents in this housing estate into flesh-eating zombies. Could you survive the zombie outbreak at the 2015 flagship haunted house at Halloween Horror Nights 5?

Overview and Thoughts

Click to expand and read our review and commentary

Ah, the flagship house is always built in Soundstage 28, yeah? This is indeed the most elaborate haunted house this year, with many special effects ‘firsts’ in Singapore. It also has the largest building facade ever built in Singapore’s HHN history, and supposedly have the most scare actors in any haunted house this year.

Compared to the other three haunted houses, it’s definitely the most spacious, as the layout and size is devised to simulate flats in Singapore’s typical public housing. Still, beware of close encounters while you enjoy the comforts of this haunted house, entirely air-conditioned in the soundstage!

The name of this haunted house, Siloso Gateway Block 50 feels like a jab to both Sentosa Spooktacular (which is either on hiatus this year or departed for its final resting place) and the dreadfully ubiquitous SG50 campaign for Singapore’s golden jubilee.

Recreating something as commonplace as public housing should be easy right? I don’t think so. Everyday concepts take a lot more effort to be convincing. Missing details will break the realism, which is why the flats at HDB are meticulously detailed. All those awful nonsense your neighbor hoards? Lots of them here. The sheer amount of props inside this house is overwhelming, even far more than Posessions (2013), a haunted home of a hoarder.

So yes, this is also my favourite haunted house, and thankfully the queues aren’t always that long if you stay at the park late. Usually, in the park’s final hour or so, the wait time drops to below 60 (often 5-15 minutes on off-peak nights). So try to give this haunted HDB block a second look – you might experience something different!

Special Effects
This haunted house (or HDB block) has some unique special effects, such as the rain – this is supposedly on a timer and not activated all the time. I’ve not seen it work during event nights.

There is an elevator at the lift lobby that brings you to floors just don’t exist in this short HDB block. It’s quite a ride that not all guests will be able to experience. And also, you might witness how an emergency services officer fends off a zombie with a firearm.


Welcome to Siloso Gateway. A peaceful neighbourhood with iconic playgrounds, upgrading works, and hourly parking – except on sundays and public holidays.

Sometimes it rains at Block 50. Is this rain, under the glow of the Blood Moon, the true cause of the outbreak?

    Thank you for the great writeups dejiki! This was definitely my favourite haunted house of the four. What actually happens inside the lift?

    Enjoyed this haunted house tremendously! We got to try out the lift on the BTS tour, that was quite exciting.

    The achi on the sofa still haunts me

    Love the little factoid about the family photo…I was kinda wondering whose photos they ‘koped’ for their set up

    We were lucky enough to able to try the lift. =)

    Initially, we thought that the actor was kidding when he told us that we should take the lift going to the 2nd floor. It was pretty scary and creepy. The elevator movement was unexpected!

    I went for the Behind the Screams tour and managed to try out the lift, although when I walked through during the actual HHN I didn’t get a chance to try it out. During the behind the scenes I enquired whether patrons would have the illusion of coming out on a different floor, but apparently that was not the case. It would have been cool, though, if at least the lift had two doors facing each other, and after the feeling of travelling up, the other door would open on a “different floor”, which is actually just the other side of the lift!

    Got a chance to try the lift, in fact was anticipating that a scare actor would appear when the door open. Was so scare for this house that I kept my head down most of the time.
