Pilgrimage of Sin

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Before Dark 5 Construction Preview - Pilgrimage of Sin entrance

The Pilgrimage of Sin is looking quite dire, with a deluge of ominous props. Let’s take a walk.

In this zone, there will be 7 altars for each of the deadlier sins.

Some things are hard to keep in – avert your eyes!

At the back end: The digital display panel is encircled by boulders, and there is a veil drifting above it.

From the top of the New York Library, you can see that the larger boulders are actually platforms for performers.

Those huge metal bars running along the New York zone, hanging above the street? Turns out there’s a lot of fire machines (and extinguishers!) installed on all of them.

It’ll be a fiery path to salvation.

The flames above the tall boulders, and torches at the zone’s marquee, will use the more eco-friendly flapping cloth flame effect.

The evil within the Pilgrimage of Sin has leaked out to Mel’s Die-In. Check out these window decals.

The 7SINisters

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Before Dark 5 Construction Preview - 7SINisters Stage

The stage is all set for the Gala Premiere of 7SINisters. Be at the park early during HHN7 event nights to meet the cast and crew of this new horror flick – screening exclusively at Universal Studios Singapore.

Did you notice that there’s an additional platform above all the frames? And then the middle part of the stage isn’t just black fabric, but padded boards? I suppose there will be a stunt here where a performer will be pulled back, slammed against the wall or something. Or in reverse: jumping off the top or rappelling, then landing in the middle. Something like that – who knows.

Zombie Laser Tag

With the boulders from Pilgrimage of Sin moved to other areas, we can now enjoy an unobstructed view of the Zombie Laser Tag (ZLT) marquee.

Inside Lights, Camera, Action‘s queue building, the overhead lights now carry an eerie red glow. Probably the queue for ZLT here.

The park is conducting technical rehearsals at night, so the setup is probably near-final.

There’s a couple of new things spotted in ZLT, and the most interesting one is this area, there there are bars, steps, padded boxes and even a fixed point aerial effect. Maybe a jumper/ flying zombie will be here. Wow.

Happy Horror Days

So this is officially Chinese New Year, although it did look more like Hungry Ghosts Festival.

And they fixed April‘s Fool!

As the park conducted rehearsals in the last week, sometimes things are not placed back the same way as before. So we might be able to see a bit more..

Fences are up to mark the way into the Secure Psychiatric Unit in the Department of Corrections, also known as the Inside The Mind haunted house. The only thing missing is the large panel bearing the house’s name.

    I didn’t expect much from Pilgrimage of Sins since I thought it would be another scarezone like ‘Demoncracy’ and ‘Post Apocalyptic rage’. BUT NO. THEY’VE REALLY STEPPED UP THEIR GAME SO WELL. I MEAN FIRE EFFECTS? MOST PROBABLY HOLOGRAPHIC DISPLAY? LED SCREEN DISPLAY? BODIES OF CORRECT PROPORTIONS AND VERY DETAILED SETTING? WOW. I AM MIND BLOWN. I AM SO HAPPY FOR UNIVERSAL STUDIOS SINGAPORE. <3 <3 <3 Also the entrance for Hex is REALLY CREATIVE. I honestly can't imagine how good they'd be in the future years.
