Overview and Thoughts

Click to Expand
Oh wow, we’re finally at our last haunted house special feature!

Hu Li’s Inn lures you in with a massive marquee, and a grand facade – but it is essentially a ‘pop-up’ club where the supernatural beings have set up a restaurant – and you are on the menu.

The various demons in this nightclub are based on Chinese mythology – from fox spirits, snakes, to spiders and the lot. Thus those unfamiliar might be wondering what’s happening – the beautiful ladies in this club are turning into cannibals? No, they’ve been in a disguise at the start all along, though their transformations were not perfect – look carefully for the little signs. The nightclub also reverts to its true form when the spell breaks away.

This is the first time the park has built a haunted house at the bay beside the Revenge of the Mummy show building. It is impressive that many scenes were packed into its compact layout. The walkthrough experience felt substantial, in fact it feels longer than Old Changi Hospital sometimes. The nice thing about this house is how the illusion quickly breaks in the middle, and the scares become very intense. In the second half, you are relentlessly assaulted by the demons at every turn.

It’s a shame the park didn’t play old songs in the queue area though, as that would really help ease guests into the otherwise barren waiting area. Old Changi Hospital has that chilling track with dogs barking, Bodies of Work has the radio station (which actually reports on the Shipman tragedy), and Salem Witch House has its own ‘Salem’s Secret’ playing. Instead, we only hear some of the oldies only when we’re next to the Old Shanghai Building – and some of the songs… didn’t exist in the 1930s era. (Oops?)

where this ‘Great Shanghai’ building has suddenly appears.

Some ‘easter eggs’ are hidden in the building’s signages. Take for example: 極樂蓮花煙館, the name of the ‘Paradise Lotus Opium den’, but the faded 魂銷 above it means to ‘sell one’s soul’.

Old posters, and a faint mix of old Chinese songs…
