Universal Studios Singapore is getting ready for Halloween Horror Nights 6. Check out the park’s transformation towards its darker side.

UPDATE: Our Halloween Horror Nights 6 Review is now LIVE. Read it now! →

◂ Opening Scaremony Setup ▸

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 6 Before Dark Day Photo Report 1 - Hollywood Opening Scaremony stage

This year’s stage looks as wide as the one used for Halloween Horror Nights 4. With nothing much installed above it, much of the action should happen from the ground.

The five windows with drapes – either just accessory to the main window or used in part of the Opening Scaremony or March of the Dead: The Resurrection show.

What is this dome-shaped object hiding behind the main arch? Could it be some sort of giant skull, to accompany the skeleton hands?

A gigantic screen in the middle of Hollywood will provide guests at the back with a view of the action in front.

◂ March of the Dead ▸

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 6 Before Dark Day Photo Report 1 - March of the Dead scare zone entrance

March of the Dead scare zone will be a festival ground themed to Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead – a mexican holiday). Major pieces on the ground have yet to arrive, probably because the park had a Secret Life of Pets event last weekend. We’ll definitely see them soon.

In the US, the Day of the Dead theme was done before in a zone called Esqueleto Muerte, where an actual festival has gone wrong and statues have came to life. The zone is lit with UV light, and scareactors wore luminous makeup, masks and costumes.

Perhaps something similar in Singapore this year.

The skull archway is one of the largest props to be ever installed at a scare zone here.

Even the ‘stained glass’ looks rather realistic.

The stage at New York Library is also being set up for the March of the Dead: The Resurrection show (or perhaps even another show). This show starts with a night parade which begins from the Ancient Egypt section of the park. This Death March will pass through The Lost World, Far Far Away, Madagascar, and Hollywood, before arriving at the scare zone. What a procession!

Quite detailed, huh.

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 6 Before Dark Day Photo Report 1 - March of the Dead The Resurrection stage white box

What’s in this white box? Like in every HHN, there’s always a mysterious box in New York’s scare zone. Well, this year it won’t be used to hide the Sesame Street school bus, which has moved all over to the other end of New York.

Probably a good choice because of the performances here, and that the Rockafeller Building section of New York will also be the entrance to the Salem Witch House haunted house.

◂ Suicide Forest ▸

Suicide Forest takes place at Jurassic Park this year, and we’ve all seen an amazing evil forest being staged there before.

Low-res artwork and pixelation? Oh dear.

There was something like that back in HHN4’s Scary Tales scare zone… It was used to hang things.

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 6 Before Dark Day Photo Report 1 - Suicide Forest scare zone tunnel

New to this year’s scare zone design: An abandoned railway tunnel. A good place for farewells?

This area is usually a bottleneck. So would funneling guests through this dark tunnel be a solution?

Likely this zone would be very foggy and filled with these movable trees blocking the way.

Not sure if there will be other.. moving trees, or not. Like Ents.

The park hasn’t said if this Suicide Forest scare zone is inspired by Aokigahara or some other place. If it’s localised, then I’d imagine that a certain spirit would linger around here. Even though she might’ve already found a home at another haunted house.

Special Thanks: Tong Ming for first sending us some info. 🙂

◂ Haunted Houses ▸

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 6 Before Dark Day Photo Report 1 - Hawker Centre Massacre

This year’s haunted houses are being put together at the usual places, with a few exceptions. Hu Li’s Inn is going to take place beside the Revenge of the Mummy ride building, while Hawker Centre Massacre will be beside Stage 28, where Jing’s Revenge and Tunnel People used to be. However, the entrance to Hawker Centre Massacre is between New York and Hollywood.

The Salem Witch House will have its entrance at the New York area, because it’s being built beside the Transformers ride’s show building. Confused? Things will be clearer in a few weeks once the entrances are up.

Would be nice if the marquee has a giant cleaver cutting right through. And did you spot the HHN6 logo on the handle?

◂ Frequent Fear Pass ▸

The Halloween Horror Nights 6 Frequent Fear Pass is now ready for processing at Universal Studio Singapore.

◂ Jack and The City ▸

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 6 Before Dark Day Photo Report 1 - Jack the Clown in the City

This year’s HHN characters have escaped from the park! On the loose are Jack the Clown, Hu Li (Fox Lady), Poisoned Teen, and Augusta the Witch.

These characters will make appearances at select roadshows. The first weekend took place at Takashimaya Shopping Centre (Ngee Ann City). Next week, you’ll be able to find the characters at Bugis+ mall. Stay tuned to rwsentosa’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for details.

Anyway, aren’t you just glad that Jack is back? And he’s bringing back his Nightmare Circus?

Although Lady Death is this year’s icon, several items themed to Jack the Clown will soon be available for sale at the park. If you buy tickets at the roadshows, you may be given some of these as gifts.

    Hey Dejiki! Great Before Dark updates. I’m really excited for this year’s HHN. Just curious, theres no haunted house in Stage 28?

    • Dejiki September 10, 2016 at 7:17 pm #

      Yes, there is no house inside Stage 28 this year.

      • zooish September 11, 2016 at 12:56 pm #

        There doesn’t seem like much space beside Stage 28 for Hawker Centre Massacre. Are you referring to the backlot area? Ditto Salem Witch House/Transformers building, unless you are referring to the backlot too?

        • Dejiki September 11, 2016 at 2:04 pm #

          Hi Zooish,

          Hawker Centre Massacre is built at the same place as Tunnel People last year and Jing’s Revenge the year before. It’s the covered loading bay beside Stage 28. As for Salem Witch House, it is located at the back of house, across from Transformers: The Ride. It’s in the backstage area, behind the ‘Rockafeller Building’ facade in New York.

          • zooish September 11, 2016 at 10:37 pm #

            Thanks for clarifying Dejiki! Interesting too that they are not using Sting Alley this year.

    wow!!!!
    I want to come agian.
    I come from thailand.

  3. Nigel September 11, 2016 at 7:58 pm #

    Hey Dejiki, do you know why there isn’t any house in stage 28 this year? It’s usually the venue for the biggest and most elaborate houses!

  4. samson September 12, 2016 at 12:41 pm #

    hey dejiki, i would like to buy some merchandise but i wonder how much would be so i could be prepared when i want to buy.

    • Dejiki September 12, 2016 at 6:41 pm #

      The prices and full line-up are not out yet, but you can expect T-shirts to go for around $29.90, lanyards for $9.90, and so forth.

      • samson September 24, 2016 at 1:01 am #

        thank you Dejiki this will be helpful. 🙂

  5. Edwin Tan September 12, 2016 at 6:06 pm #

    Any idea if there’s special discounts or gifts at the roadshows?

    • Dejiki September 12, 2016 at 6:42 pm #

      As mentioned, there are some gifts offered if you purchase a combination of tickets. For more details, please check with the staff at the roadshows.
