Halloween Horror Nights Singapore (2011)

Halloween Horror Nights 2011 Singapore THE VOID scare zone

Relive my first Halloween Horror Nights experience at Universal Studios Singapore‘s inaugural scare fest.

NEW! Review and trip report on Halloween Horror Nights 2 (HHN2) 2012 now available!

From 6pm, the covered area of Sci-Fi City and New York zones were sealed off for the turnover, giving us a day-time look at The Pestilence.

Apart from the black glass mugs, the park also sells these two souvenirs: A “bloody mug” and a dazzling LED plastic cup.

Madness Begins

So here it is, the photos / trip report / review!

I will be rating each scare zone similar to how Steve Rowin did for his review of Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights. Essentially, three scores: Story (however I will not talk about the story), Presentation (or the “Atmos-Fear”, including production values and level of detail for props, special effects and scare actors) and Scare Factor – simply, how scary it was.

For Universal Studios Singapore, “Scare House”/”Haunted House” and Scare Zone are used interchangeably. The park advertises 6 scare zones, although one of them is a large-scale haunted house and another is an elaborate outdoor haunt.

For the Carn-Evil and Post-Apocalyptic Rage zones, the park has added tons of hay/straw on the ground to make it difficult to walk on.

Step right up into this bizarre Carnival. Make sure you meet all the characters in this zone: Circus Ringmaster, Fortune Teller, Snake Charmer, Fire Eater, Tattoo Lady, Bearded Lady, Ballerinas and Twin Sisters. There are also killer clowns and larger-than-life ragdolls.

There are plenty of sideshows in the Carn-Evil and the scare actors play their roles very well – expect to be entertained just by conversing with them. Countless photo opportunities here, just that the amount of fog is too crazy for good photos.

Once you are done with the main street in Hollywood, meet the Director, this year’s icon, who has been waiting on his set – right in front of the fountain, for your final cut.

Scare-wise, the only creepy characters here are the mad looking clowns. The “freaks”/sideshows actually all look rather normal, but they put up a good act to tie in with the macabre circus ambiance.

Vengeance of the Matriarch

This is the only “Haunted House” attraction and it is massive, taking up most of the space in the Stage 28 building. The queue starts from Hollywood and goes backstage!

As victims step into the soundstage, they will be transported to the front yard of a dilapidated 19th-century Peranakan Mansion. The Mansion façade looks amazing – with a lot of texture and detail (not forgetting corpses scattered about) and sadly most people would just walk right in and not notice the props outside. But the rooms inside the mansion are just as detailed – down to things like tiled flooring commonly seen in actual Peranakan houses and the traditional family portraits. There is an astounding abundance of props and certainly a great amount of thought went into the scene design.

The first rooms are relatively “normal”, from a foyer/waiting room (with an altar) to a portrait room, a music room and then a library. Things seem normal until you reach the dining room…

Be alert because there are no “static” (aka fake) actors at all. And the larger rooms have as many as 6 scare actors. As you travel deep into the mansion, you would discover the more grotesque rooms – a balcony with hanging corpses (and one of which is actually a very talented scare actor – who would JUMP OFF the walls and right onto the ledge. It was unbelievable – I almost lost my balance here) and of course, the park did not leave out the chamber where you have to push through dangling bodies to escape…

There are also very strange rooms with occult artifacts and well, a “walk-in wardrobe” that puts you right in the most vulnerable position for scares – this Peranakan family definitely has skeletons (and several angry spirits) in their closet. There are several scenes that do not quite fit with the Peranakan theme, but they are staple rooms in typical Halloween Horror Nights scare houses in the US.

Also in the mix are rooms with unstable and squishy flooring, as well as several spots with very well-positioned motion-trigger props and sound effects. When I say very, my group activated the sound effect at the same spot (a falling grandfather clock) and we all just jumped and shouted at the SAME place. It just works. You can’t get anything better than that.

While it is not particularly dark, the scenes are lit with black lighting (purple UV lamps), casting a subtle, but eerie green glow, and it’s barely bright enough to navigate the cramped scenes. There are also a lot of overhead strobe lighting going on, as well as blinding lights to disorient you, and conceal scare actors! You definitely don’t want to step into the Mansion alone.

This scare house can get packed especially in the second half, which can ruin surprise scares – BUT this also means that you can be trapped in some scenes for some time and get repeatedly spooked by the actors. I would recommend hitting this scare zone as early as possible so that you can visit it again later. It can take from 7 to 15 minutes (if there are too many people inside) to walk through this scare house.

List of Rooms:
Courtyard, Waiting Room, Portrait Room, Black Hallway (L shaped layout), Piano Room, Dining Hall, Library + Slug-like Human, Occult Artifacts room, Balcony with hanging bodies, Hallway with Red Light, Black Hallway #2, Mirror/Pepper’s Ghost Corner, Matriarch’s Bedroom, Dressing Room, Wardrobe, Unstable floors (squishy and plank floors, crank shaped layout), Hanging Bodies + Butcher’s Room, Plank floors + Strobe lights, Spiral-turn + Booming/low frequency noise, Kitchen/Boiler room (Final encounter with Butcher), Exit

Post-Apocalyptic Rage

For those who play zombie games like Left 4 Dead, congratulations – you can now experience a zombie apocalypse scenario. There are countless scare actors in this zone and they behave just like “zombies”, crawling, stumbling and following victims around. They also sometimes pull off sudden movements, like lunging towards or trying to swipe victims – very effective for those surprise scares. I even saw some guests being too shocked and had to cover their eyes in this zone!

The entire New York zone feels out of control, with lights and blaring alarms going crazy. The difference is literally “day and night”: In the day, New York just looks messy, but after 8pm, it’s madness. The dense theatrical fog greatly enhances the graphic visuals in this zone – you know the scene where you see silhouettes of zombies charging from a distance – yep, that.

The Pestilence

Halloween Horror Nights 2011 Singapore THE PESTILENCE scare zone

Sorry for just showing the gates here but there’s no way to take photos within this scare zone!

As an attraction, The Pestilence is more like a haunted house than a “scare zone”. It takes place outdoors, at the New York Harbour area (leading back to New York). While the Pestilence is quite short and can be completed in 4-7 minutes, there are a lot of scare actors and the abundance of fog and crates does not help at all with navigating in this horrid space!

The initial portion (Harbour area) has a lot of surprise scares because there are many places for scare actors to hide. Once the path leads into Water Street, it becomes a bit more predictable – although a few talented scare actors, masked by the thick fog, made me jump.

The Void

The Void takes place mainly in the covered area of Sci-Fi City and the main attraction is a mad scientist’s horrible experiment. It is a little show that drew persistent crowds because well, it just didn’t seem like acting – the scare actors are convincingly insane.

This zone also has other characters with very elaborate (and bizarre) costumes. You should definitely spend some time here and try to take photos with them!

The Edge of Darkness

To me, this zone was most disappointing because there were very few unique characters and they didn’t seem very interesting. Even the Egyptian warriors/guardians (from day-time meet and greet) were scare actors in this zone. Ancient Egypt did not receive any sort of dramatic overlay, but just columns with fire. To be fair, the layout of Ancient Egypt does not really allow installations, but I think the park should look into developing a scare house at the (unused) exterior queue area for Revenge of the Mummy.

44 Sins

The last zone is not a scare zone, but you can say it’s a dance floor. Most of the guests weren’t really into it though (actually, almost everyone were busy taking videos and photos of the performers) but this zone had good music playing (the typical clubbing sort) – all well-synced with pyrotechnics and theatrical lighting!

Trip Reports/ and Thoughts

Read more: Other Attractions Observations, Express Passes and RIP Tour

For Battlestar Galactica, both sides were noticeably faster during Halloween Horror Nights. Not sure if the speed was adjusted or it was just because the trains were running non-stop for at least 12 hours.

Although it was the first night, the park was crowded and there were long lines for all attractions (except Accelerator). Expect to wait in line for at least 40-60 minutes for the park’s rollercoaster attractions and Vengeance of the Matriarch. It might not seem very long, but bear in mind that the park is only open for 4 hours.

Passes: Admission? Express? VIP??

A lot of people have asked me about the 3 types of tickets available, so let me clarify here. Tickets can be purchased on-site or at Resort World Sentosa’s website.

Halloween Horror Nights Admission Pass: $60 ($48~52 with discount)
You need to purchase this ticket to enter the park for Halloween Horror Nights. There are no extra charges for the attractions in the park and neither is there a limit to the number of times you can experience them – you just need to queue.

HHN Universal Express Pass: $20
This pass is an add-on to admission. It allows you to use the Universal Express line for 6 attractions (Battlestar Galactica: Human, Battlestar Galactica: Cylon, Revenge of the Mummy, Accelerator, The Pestilence, Vengeance of the Matriarch). Each pass is good for access to the Express line, once per attraction only. The express line is usually very short or empty, so more than often you have an instant (or very quick) access to the attractions.

My advice: if you wish to visit any attractions more than once, get the Express pass.

VIP Tours (HHN RIP Tour): $118
This tour option includes admission, a $10 meal voucher, HHN souvenir mug, RWS VIP Tours lanyard, HHN VIP lanyard card and a glow-stick. Some refreshments will be served before the tour begins.

For three hours, RIP Tour guests will be brought around the park with a Guide dressed in scrubs, with dramatic make-up. The whole bunch looked like some deranged group of medical students to me. VIP Tours offer guests with direct admission to attractions (bypasses normal lines and Universal Express lines, with the use of lifts backstage). The guide would also help with taking photos (including bypassing queues for photos) and arranging the special meet-and-greet session with scare actors.

I have experienced the RIP Tour this year and in terms of efficiency, what I can say is: In three hours, my group has been on all attractions (except Accelerator) once and Vengeance of the Matriarch twice. It really depends on your Guide because my VIP guide planned to hit all Scare zones first, then rides, which meant a fair bit of backtracking. RIP Tour is not exactly the most efficient if you want to hit the attractions as often as possible (the better way would be to buy multiple Express passes) but it is definitely very pleasant to be able to cut the lines, have someone to answer all your burning questions and also, a great help with photos. My group stalled a long queue for the Director’s Meet-and-Greet set for a good 15 minutes, to the disgust of regular guests waiting in line. Oh well.

For more information about ticketing and discounts, as well as making reservations, please refer to Resort World Sentosa’s website.


The free-roam scare zones are fun to walk around and meet scare actors. Unlike during the day, there are no park staff to accompanying any of the characters (security staff are around, but they stand from a distance), which allows guests to be fully immersed in the themed zones (which also means, if you have to ask other guests if you want to take photos with scare actors). The park’s cleaning and entrance operations crew are also received makeovers, down to ripped and bloodstained uniforms!

So is it worth spending S$60 for Halloween Horror Nights? I would say so. Like the famous Halloween Horror Nights in the US, it is an entirely different theme park experience that Universal Creative excels at. There has never been another event in Singapore that is produced at such scale, and definitely not with this kind of budget.

I’m definitely looking forward to next year’s Halloween Horror Nights. As RWS has invested very heavily this year building the scare zones (it’s the first year after all), we can expect most of them to return in future years. I hope to see the park utilize the The Lost World zone next year: There’s definitely space for at least one large scare house there, either at the Waterworld queue area or the space beside Revenge of the Mummy ride building. The Jurassic Park zone could possibly be perfect for a jungle-themed scare zone!

If you’ve attended Halloween Horror Nights, please drop me a message or leave a comment! I would like to hear about your personal experiences, as well as what you think about the scare zones and overall concept this year! 🙂

    thanks I enjoyed reading this!

    Hi there,

    I attended this horror event yesterday with excitement and anticipation! =)

    I loved 2 of their haunted houses especially the Vengeance of the Matriarch. I did like the idea of the furniture popping out while we ventured through the darkness. The characters in there were out to scare you! However, in my personal opinion, darkness does make the whole experience less scary for me. I am someone who is not afraid of the dark and blood. How I wish I could see all the bloodied characters and props in broad daylight!

    The presentations, green lighting, smokey effects did heighten the horror sensations and excitement factors! But somehow, I feel that the dry ice was a tad too much at times; it clouded our vision while we walked.

    I agree with you that more horror zones should be created to UP the excitement factors and make our monies more worthwhile. Because not all people would ride the rollercoasters while they are there.

    Anyway, I enjoyed myself thoroughly & hope to see this event again next year. =))

    • Dejiki October 23, 2011 at 8:32 am #

      Hi MooMoo,
      Thinking back now, I don’t recall many “bloody” scenes for both scare zones! Perhaps only the dining room and the kitchen in Vengeance of the Matriarch? Otherwise, it’s all too “green” for me. If USS follows the American park and bring in scare zones that are based on horror films, then we might see more blood and gore – say the HOSTEL or SAW themed zones. It seems like they don’t want to make it too intense in Singapore.. yet.

      Thanks for writing back!

  3. Luke October 23, 2011 at 7:21 pm #

    I went to the event on Friday night, and I loved it!
    It’s way more fun than I had expected.
    I love Pestilence and Post-Apocalyptic Rage!!!!
    The Vengeance of the Matriarch is really detailed, but it is not my favourite.
    However, I think I spent too much time on queueing for the roller coasters….Because my friends haven’t been on them before……
    Anyway, I will definitely visit the HHN 2012!

    • Dejiki October 24, 2011 at 12:25 am #

    Great review! Was thinking if i shld go and check this event out and you really had provided some great info 🙂

  5. Timothy October 26, 2011 at 5:52 pm #

    Hi, are there glow sticks available for sale in the park itself?

    How much would it be btw? Say for just a simple 6inch glow stick.

    Thank you! & thanks for the great review!

    • Dejiki October 26, 2011 at 6:09 pm #

      Yep, there are stalls selling the usual glow sticks and the mini ones that can be made into necklaces/bracelets/headbands etc.

      It’s $3 per pack (1 stick, or 3 mini flexible sticks).

  6. Yong Sheng October 28, 2011 at 1:11 am #

    Hi there,

    My friends and i are intending to go for this on Sunday! just to check, does the normal $60 admission allow us to take the rides such as Battlestar?

    Many Thanks!

    • Dejiki October 28, 2011 at 7:04 am #

      Yep, all attractions that are operating through the night are included in the $60 admission.

    Omg amazing, brilliant, fantastical review etc!!! I wish you could have elaborated more on the actual story behind the Peranakan House but I know you had to leave it out since it’s ~SPOILERS~ Wish I could be in Singapore to experience it omg, you can tell USS has spent a lot of money on the event. Perhaps next year, they’d make more halloween-themed merchandise (and food) ;D

    • Dejiki November 5, 2011 at 4:26 pm #

      Here’s the official storyline provided by the park:

      “Many years ago, a power-hungry Nyonya seduced the village butcher to brutally murder her older sister in the family mansion. Today, the restless spirit of this demented Peranakan matriarch still results in this haunted house, inviting you to enter her ghostly abode.”

      The problem with this narrative is how it was executed in the attraction: there are many unique scare actors here but their roles in the story is so scattered that… there really isn’t a coherent story? I mean, we are expected to come up with our own interpretation (and er, get spooked along the way LOL)

      • ilyana November 5, 2011 at 4:31 pm #

        That is quite grotesque LOL, I think I would have died in that room filled with hanging corpses.

        • Dejiki November 5, 2011 at 4:38 pm #

          Honestly speaking, I’ve watched many videos of the HHN mazes in America and the room that gives me the chills is the room with hanging corpses. I wasn’t expecting this room at USS, but in “Vengeance” there were two of such rooms (one balcony where we can only see the corpses, and the other being the ACTUAL room you have to push through corpses). The best part was the balcony scene actually has one scare actor who pretended to be dangling off the wall, but he actually dived right down to the ledge – this is really the one of the best scare moments!

          As for the ACTUAL room.. the corpses were really heavy and hard to push (and a lot of people just flipped out upon the sight of it – imagine expletives in local languages here). After our first walkthrough, we’ve discovered a good way to pass this. Just watch this video (if you have bandwidth). It’s basically what she does from 03:03 onwards LOL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEKsT7OlCGY

  9. Ben7 March 28, 2012 at 10:31 pm #

    Great review and pictures, however those horror stuff will not convince me to attend Halloween Horror Nights in USS. I had a fantastic Halloween Night in Universal Studio Hollywood 2007, really amazed me & my wife had a most memorable horror event in our life. Just to share some of my great experience, I still recall the great stuff like when we first step in the Main Street we were greeted by those sexy ladies zombie follow by lots of screaming and yelling all over the park, not the best part yet.

    Fogs everywhere you cant see through, walk with the direction sense and suddenly scare actors touch you from no where and many disguised like Texas Chainsaw Massacre with the chiansaw, Freddy Krueger and Jason scare and chasing the ladies around the park, the feeling was extreme intense if you have a weak heart you are not advise to enter. My wife was chased away by the disguised Texas Chainsaw Massacre and I was alone in the dark looking for my wife that really took me a while to explore and follow my wife screaming, found her somewhere sitting and calling my name, scary huh??

    The horror atmosphere really make you felt like in the real horror movie scene, I have been to those horror maze like Texas Chainsaw the Massacre, Jason, Freddy Krueger, every part in the maze looks familiar in the movie. Really awesome that makes you feel you were in one of those all time favourites horror movie. The Chucky talk show is another impressive stuff Chucky teased the guest with sarcastic tone like in the movie and even debate with guest in bad words! Funny… Also we walked the War of the worlds plane crash scene which they converted to zombie zone and of cause the scare actors came out from the Bate’s Motel.

    It was cold in the night and we did not want to get wet so we missed some of the zone like waterworld become slaughter world, cant remember what was the name for the Lost Word theme. It was a 5 Star horror theme park and I love Horror movie!!!

    I wish to do this again and hope USS could bring the real extreme horror night for the guest and really worth to scream for a night 😉

      Hi Ben,

      Thanks for dropping by!

      I do agree that yes, the Singapore event isn’t that scary yet and I truly wish to experience what you’ve described here. I was disappointed not to see the Chainsaw crew in Singapore, but then there were space issues here – the park was already cramped and they fenced off about half the park. I hope that this year they open the entire park and night and yes, increase the level of horror!

  10. Adam June 7, 2012 at 4:07 am #

    Awesome pictures. been to the Hollywood and Orlando event. so to see them come out with another is great for all of them. besides the Cups, were there any other HHN merchandise?

  11. Patrix mccool July 12, 2012 at 6:48 pm #

    I think they could use the indoor revenge of the mummy que as a scare, as it is already quite dark and easy to hide things in, they could just add a bit of fog and a lot of actors to make it an amazing scare

  12. Sanjay August 28, 2012 at 8:54 pm #

    Hey, this event was really good.went there with a friend and my dad. The part I liked was all the haunted houses. They should open up the whole place and add more haunted houses which will make it more cool and exciting. By the way, do you know about anything about the next HHN this year,2012. I have seen a website that states that the audition was over and that it is again in uss but don’t know whether true or not. Would be great if u could help me check because I am really looking forward to the next HHN. Am a big fan of it. Thx

    • Dejiki August 28, 2012 at 8:57 pm #

      Hi Sanjay,

      Glad to hear that you enjoyed HHN last year. This year’s event is much larger and most of the park will be open.

      Universal Studios Singapore has announced HHN2, and you can read about it in this blog entry:

      In the near future, I will also be publishing an entry about Halloween attractions in Singapore.

      • Sanjay August 29, 2012 at 4:57 pm #

        Thx so much! Am looking forward to it.thx again

        • Sanjay August 29, 2012 at 5:20 pm #

          Thx. Really appreciated the help. I really am excited to go. Are u gonna be there too? 1 more question if u may. Can I also wear Halloween clothes and bring a torch to flash around. also, will the scare actors be allowed to touch u as u walk or will they just keep to themselves?

          • Dejiki August 29, 2012 at 5:26 pm #

            Hi Sanjay,

            For HHN, guests are not allowed to wear costumes (and/or masks) to the event. If you do so, you will not be able to enter the park. If you attempt to wear a costume (and/or mask) after you have entered the park, you will be escorted out by park security.

            As for the torchlight, reasonable use (which does NOT include shining light at scare actors, staff or other guests!) is allowed outdoors. However, it is not allowed inside any of the haunted houses.

            Scare actors will not touch guests at all times. Also, guests are not allowed to touch scare actors!

            • Sanjay September 1, 2012 at 3:37 pm #

              Can I just check, if I go there, am I allowed to scare the scare actors??

              • Dejiki September 1, 2012 at 3:51 pm #

                Hi Sanjay,

                There are no rules stating that you are cannot “scare the scare actors”. However, please note that for the safety of scare actors and other guests in the park, guests should also not disturb the scare actors, physically and/or verbally. This also includes any actions that would hinder their performance as scare actors.

                I believe it would be more enjoyable to the audience to the themed experience that the organizers spent so much work to design and implement. Leave the scaring the the professionals! 🙂

                Ok. 1 more thing. If I’m going on the 20th of October, do u think I should book the tickets or can I just go there and buy tickets. Do u think they will have tickets. I will be going at around 6.30pm and the HHN only starts at 8 so they should have it right??

                Hi Sanjay,

                I would recommend that you buy tickets earlier, because there is a chance that the tickets will get sold out, and also the queues for tickets last year during HHN event nights were very long.

                If you have more questions, feel free to post them at the other entry (http://dejiki.com/2012/09/halloween-attractions-singapore-2012/) because we’re reaching the limit for a thread in this entry. 🙂
