Halloween Horror Nights 6 - Old Changi Hospital / The Hospital Facade creepy

Overview and Thoughts

Click to Expand
Inspired by Singapore’s most haunted place, Old Changi Hospital (OCH) is likely the scariest house this year. It is a very compact house with intense jumpscares, with tricks in many scenes. The scares are all devised to be very quick and effective, with no lengthy build-up. “here in a flash, and gone without a trace”, as they say.

It’s great to see that the park did not take the easy way out with designing this house since OCH is primarily an abandoned, rundown building. There are no rooms randomly crammed with props – almost every scene is purpose-built for performance.

The derelict appearance throughout the hospital building is expressed through very elaborate, detailed texturing. I wonder how long the team took to weather the walls. The blood splatters also look significantly better this year, compared to the sterile appearance from past years’ houses – though maybe the right colour lighting may have helped.

Similar to last year’s The MRT (and actually the MATI CAMP from 2 year back), the stories have all mashed up together, and presented in OCH in bits and pieces. Everyone has different memories and ghost stories of Changi, so there’s no point in making a ‘canon’ narrative like in houses such as Bodies of Work. So be prepared to be left with haunting afterimages after escaping from the horrors – which may urge you to research about the Changi Hospital’s haunting history.

Edit (16/10): This is definitely the most popular haunted house this year, and last night (15/10) we saw a record wait time of over 140 minutes. The queue area was completely filled up and overflowed to the Suicide Forest scare zone. With guests being admitted into the house at a continuous pace to keep the queue moving, the experience and scares will be affected.

    I visited on opening night and there was this awesome young Indian guy in Japanese costume with a katana sword giving a strange speech about honour and justice. It was almost like Shakespeare!

    This year Halloween horror night is lousy. No effort to decorate the park. The atmosphere was simply lacking. Changi hospital haunted house was not as scary as what you have mentioned . The wards( narrow room with few props) was nothing to shout about .
    The suicide forest was the worst; with few scare actors . They used the same props ( cans with needles I supposed ) to go up close behind u and shaked it, supposedly to “scare” us.
    Please give the park your most candid and honest feedback so they can up the ante, roll up theirs socks and put up a splendid performance.
    This year production is cheap!!out to make $ only!
    We are disappointed!
    The shrek show is repeated telecast from previous year!
    I guess the only good performance is the “Jack “show!
    Salem witches is good though.
    The people who handled the queue were only interested in squeezing as many people into the haunted house! It takes away the spookiness of the walk-through !

      This is my second year visiting HHN (first time was 2 years ago) and i disagree with you.

      I think USS has maintained the standards of (at least) the haunted houses. I didn’t visit the suicide forest so i can’t comment on that, but the March of the Dead one, along with its show, had gorgeous sets, props and costumes. It didn’t look cheap at all. True, this year there were fewer scare zones so the park as a whole doesn’t have as much ‘halloween party’ feel, but the haunted houses are the main attraction for us serious ghost-hunting fans. Again, the sets, props, costumes and makeup were as professionally done and creatively designed as always. You might be disappointed because you’ve gotten used to haunted houses already and are not so easily scared.

      The number of visitors has declined so i don’t think USS is making as much money now, so it’s especially commendable that they’ve maintained the standards.

      p.s. the Shrek show is the same as every single day in the park, because it’s their regular (non-halloween) show xD

    I thought it was OK. I agree with the fact that gap between guest were close but if they handled it any different, the wait time would have easily doubled which I think would be a big pain in the ass. I did get some nice time in the houses towards closing time though.

    In terms of production value, USS has always been great although I have to say they have yet to be able to replicate the Forbidden Forest of HHN3. Have been going since HHN3

    I thought it was well done. Unquestionably that the trail of people going into the haunted house was a bit irritating but if they handled the queue any different, the queue time would have easily doubled which would have been a pain the ass. I did get repeats of the some of the haunted house towards the end.

    As for the scare zones, nothing would beat the Forbidden Forest in HHN3. Have been going for the past 4 years, the haunted houses gets better IMO. The scare zones, not so much though.

    I was born in this hospital in 1967 and my dad being RAF we left Singapore when I was two years old. I plan a trip for my 50 th Birthday next year to Thailand and Singapore . Do you think the hospital is worth visiting ?
