Sisters of Evil Opening Scaremony – Halloween Horror Nights 3

HHN3 - Sisters of Evil

Maiden of the Opera, Daughter of the Undead and Crone of the Forest – three banished witches, reunited at Universal Studios Singapore’s Halloween Horror Nights 3 as exclusive icons to bring three times the evil.

Halloween Horror Nights 3’s icons – The Sisters of Evil

Universal Studios Singapore (USS) introduces three original icons for Halloween Horror Nights 3 – The sister witches were banished from a lost age. They have now reunited across time and space, settling down at Universal Studios Singapore during Halloween Season. The three witches are not here on vacation, but back with a vengeance – casting a spine-chilling shadow over the park with their dark magic.

The Story of three Sisters of Evil

Three witches, scattered across different parts of the world and time, are reuniting at last at Universal Studios Singapore.

Maiden of the Opera
The Maiden of the Opera desires to be always seen, heard and celebrated… at all costs. She lingers with her Songs of Death at the Chinese Opera Academy, where she has long held her place as the leading star.

Daughter of the Undead
The child-like Daughter of the Undead has an insatiable thirst for blood. She has raised her league of vampires and now leads the Attack of the Vampires at Whittemore Graveyard, draining the villagers of their lives… and prowling for fresh blood.

Crone of the Forest
The Crone of the Forest lurks in her Forbidden Forest, looking to harvest souls of anyone foolish enough to be lost in the dense jungle next to a Malay village. As the expert in ancient black magic, she has called forth forgotten spirits and enslaved hapless villagers to do her bidding.

As a tribute to this year’s Halloween Horror Nights 3 icons, the Sisters of Evil entry will feature lots of photographs of the three sisters and a video of their dramatic opening show, which happens every evening during Halloween Horror Nights 3. The icons can only be found together at their stage at Hollywood. So enjoy these photos of the Sisters doing things – posing, bewitching, judging and scaring park guests.

Opening Scaremony

The Opening Ceremonies of Halloween Horror Night events are commonly known as “Scaremonies” in the US parks. For HHN2 last year, it was a simple affair of the Puppetmaster opening the doors to his House of Dolls.

Halloween Horror Nights 3 doesn’t do subtle. Every night kick-starts with the Sisters’ grand entrance at Hollywood Boulevard. The trio graciously enters the cage, taunting guests while inside. The cage slowly rises into the air. The covers were dropped and the Sisters vanish – only to reappear on their stage, with a dazzling blaze nonetheless.

Come witness the Sisters’ reign of terror! Please watch in high quality. I tried my best to stabilize the video in post-processing, but it was really MADNESS to keep steady because everyone was getting very excited. I really enjoyed the opening ceremony because it’s totally dramatic and impeccably synchronized with an epic Electro track.

After declaring the park open, the Sisters will stay at their stage, which becomes a photo opportunity spot. 6R-sized photos can be ordered at a nearby booth at $10 per print. Park guests may also have their picture taken for free with their own cameras (park crew would be happy to help). As the three sisters are the most expressive icons so far, taking photos with them is definitely a must!

The Sisters have exquisitely elaborate make-up, costumes and accessories. Their dresses are very unique and finely detailed – richly textured and embroidered, they seem crazily expensive and well, crazy. The entire “look” of the sisters shows extraordinarily well as they perform on stage.

The Maiden’s headdress, for example, have little hanging pieces that would move as she twitches sharply. She also has her unmissable “cracked porcelain” face. There is a reason why she has long nails – find out more in the upcoming Songs of Death photo feature.

The Daughter looks like a doll herself, with her gothic layered dress in deep crimson, contrasted with blue trimmings. She has her creepy doll to play with.

The Crone’s outfit seems to be made from a grand batik-like print resembling flora and fauna. She also wears an assortment of necklaces that appears to be made from bone and hair.

The sisters pose dramatically, often lunging at guests in unison. If there are no victims brave enough to meet them, they will bewitch visitors walking by…

“Mortals, come forth!”

“Look at my nails!”

The sisters cycle through a few poses, but I thought this “raising hands” set is probably the best.

They are often not easily impressed.

But at times, they are bewildered by what guests do at their stage.

And they are either too happy or surprised when kids want a photo with them.

What’s next?
I hope you enjoyed this entry on the Sisters of Evil. The heavily requested features on Haunted Houses will be published soon.

These will not be complete walkthroughs of the Haunted Houses (that’ll ruin the fun; plus the park will probably hunt me down) but more of a look at the extraordinary theming and other touches that are easily missed if you walk too fast, or kept your eyes shut throughout your journey.

    Wow! Amazing entrance by “The 3 Sisters Of Evil”! Can’t wait for this upcoming Saturday…! I just want to know,…. Will the Staff there, block the way through New York & guide the guest to Possession? Cause I was told by some that they had experienced this and felt that it was unfair, as they had plan to go to Adrift first…. I just want to know, so that my plan won’t fail… 😀
    & by the way amazing updates… can’t wait for more…! 😀

      Hi Izzuddin,

      Yes, that’s true. After park opens, guests may only proceed to the Forbidden Forest via Madagascar and Far Far Away. The path towards Attack of the Vampires and Adrift will be closed until most of the guests have cleared Hollywood. It will cause a delay of 3-10 minutes.

      Going to Possessions first, then Songs of Death and keeping Adrift for last is also another possible strategy that you can use. If you are able to run fast enough and be the first few to enter Possessions, you will very likely only have to wait for 5-15 minutes at Songs of Death. That means by 7:30PM, you have all the time to wait at Adrift (which should have a wait time of 60~100 minutes). Even with the longest wait, you would be able to complete all three houses before 10PM, leaving three hours to explore the scare zones and other attractions.

        Thank you so much! 😀 Hope to have fun & scares this upcoming Saturday…! 😀

    Hi Dejiki!

    Great feature! Do you know the name of the track used in the opening scaremony? Its been stuck in my head since I attended the event. Thanks!

    • Dejiki October 25, 2013 at 10:29 pm #

      Which section of the opening scaremony? When they are in the cage, or after they appear on the stage with the pyrotechnics?
