Halloween Horror Nights 7 – Before Dark 4

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - MAKE THE CUT marquee

Sinister evil is out and about. Discover the creepy setup for Universal Studios Singapore’s Halloween Horror Nights 7 in the safety of daylight.

The 7SINisters

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - 7SINisters Stage

Gone are the big barricades at the 7Sinisters stage.

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Golden Stanchion for the 7SINister Stage

They’re replaced with classy stanchions. It’s a gala premiere, ya’kno.

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - 7SINisters Stage LIGHTS

It looks like the stage is more or less done – maybe the frames are meant to be “floating” amid the flapping cloth. Powerful flood lights are hidden behind the black fabric.

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Lights at the lagoon

I guess there will be light beams coming from behind the 7SINisters stage, and this ensemble of 8 will be responsible for that visual drama.

Pilgrimage of Sin

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Pilgrimage of Sin

Things are becoming a bit more ‘real’ at the Pilgrimage of Sin scare zone.

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Creepers on boulders

The boulders and cages don’t look so barren anymore. Still lots of lying corpses hidden within.

Finally, some new sets at the New York Library end of the zone.

The Pilgrimage zone will include altars for all 7 Deadlier Sins, so imagine that these could be some of them.

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Boulders on the Stage

Finally, something at the New York Library stage, giant boulders and a huge slab. Turns out it’s a digital display. Who knows what sinister spectacle might happen here.

Zombie Laser Tag

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - ZOMBIE LASER TAG / Warning signs

Are you excited for Zombie Laser Tag (ZLT), the park’s first ever ‘VIP’ zombie survival experience?

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - ZOMBIE LASER TAG entrance / Construction within Lights, Camera, Action queue building

There’s a little white box within the Lights, Camera, Action queue building. This is where ZLT players will gear up and return equipment for ZLT.

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - ZOMBIE LASER TAG entrance / Pick-up Point

How much of the experience is indoors, and how much takes place at Sting Alley and the New York Harbour? Guess we’ll only know when the event starts.

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - ZOMBIE LASER TAG / hanging canvas

It’s starting to look like an (outdoor) escape room here, with so many walls, fences, strange boxes..

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - ZOMBIE LASER TAG / strange boxes

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - ZOMBIE LASER TAG / DZ5 zone

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - ZOMBIE LASER TAG / safety bumpers

For your safety and comfort, foam bumpers are added to sharp corners.

Ahhh! Hanging black bags! *runs*

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - ZOMBIE LASER TAG / sliding door outside DEAD room

At one of the ‘black boxes’ is this interesting sliding door, and inside – this ‘dead’ wall. Perhaps there’s a puzzle here and some mechanism to trigger the door. Or this could be a holding room to pace out other players. What do you think?

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - ZOMBIE LASER TAG / DEAD room with counters

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - ZOMBIE LASER TAG entrance / Mistake sign removed

The signage with the ‘SCORT’ error were all removed. I hope I didn’t make too much trouble pointing that out.

Happy Horror Days

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Happy Horror Days entrance

It looks like this zone is more or less done, so let’s have a recap.

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Happy Horror Days scare zone / Calendar Pages

Happy Horror Days is a scarezone with themed sub-zones showcasing twisted holidays. The perverse Father Time decided to switch things up. So we’ll have:

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Happy Horror Days scare zone / Clocks 2

New Year’s Eve – Countdown… till your time is up.

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Happy Horror Days scare zone / Clocks

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Happy Horror Days scare zone / Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day – a day you’ll love to hate.

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Happy Horror Days scare zone / Easter Day Maze

Easter Day – with a horror maze and killer rabbits.

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Happy Horror Days scare zone / Easter Horror Maze

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Happy Horror Days scare zone / April Fools' Day YOU FOOL

Circus Day/ Clown Day/ April Fools’ Day – A place for those with coulrophobia.

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Happy Horror Days scare zone / April Fools' Day Clown Area

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Happy Horror Days scare zone / Christmas area wolf

Christmas – Not your usual winter wonderland.

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Happy Horror Days scare zone / Chinese New Year holiday overview

Chinese holidays, either Chinese New Year and/or the Hungry Ghost Festival (which is already a HORRIBLE TIME for some.)

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Happy Horror Days scare zone / Chinese Holiday area canvas rolled up

Oh my, what horrors are rolled up in there?

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Happy Horror Days scare zone / Chinese New Year area joss sticks

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Happy Horror Days scare zone / St Patrick's Day area

St. Patrick’s Day – probably evil leprechauns here.

I guess the zone will also have roaming, ad-hoc, horror-days, with scare actors portraying ruined holidays without a physical set.

HHN7 MasterCard Priceless Experience?

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Happy Horror Days scare zone / Mastercard Priceless Experience camping ground

Numerous cameras are spotted all over the back section of Jurassic Park. This area is usually not used for scare zones – I wonder why.

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Happy Horror Days scare zone / Mastercard Priceless Experience cameras

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Happy Horror Days scare zone / Mastercard Priceless Experience cameras 2

The camera setup suggests that this could be the place where winners of the HHN7 MasterCard Priceless overnight scare experience will spend their unfortunate night camping here.

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Happy Horror Days scare zone / Mastercard Priceless Experience campfire

So this could be the place they set up camp, or it might be the staging ground for a part of the experience. There’s already a campfire set up.

Haunted houses

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Rockefeller Building cleared

Usually by this time most of the haunted house entrances are already up, but we’re still missing HEX, Death Mall and Inside the Mind.

The furniture at Rockefeller Building was cleared away. So Inside The Mind is on its way.

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - HEX entrance not set up

No public path to the Midnight Man’s hut of HEX..yet.

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - Make the Cut haunted house

Over at the Make The Cut haunted house, it’s still only one side of some street building in this slice of some town in South Korea. Maybe that’s all there is. There’s a swiveling panel that could be used to hang the queue entrances.

Hopefully the rest will be up next week!

Meet the Scareactors

Sinister people on the streets! Father Time and Terracotta Warrior were spotted at Westgate.

Father Time, Sin of Perversion, twisting holidays so you’d rather go to school or work instead.

Why am I here…? Where is the Empress?

I guess the Warrior wasn’t that scary.

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - HHN7 Roadshow / Malice appears

Malice came out to haunt Westgate.

Raven returned to meet her fans.

HHN7 Roadshow Specials

Halloween Horror Nights 7 Preview Construction Update Before Dark 4 - HHN7 Roadshow Sales Promotions

If you haven’t bought your tickets yet, the roadshows can be a good option as they’re selling open-dated HHN7 admission passes at $55 (usual: $68). Frequent Fear Passes at $98 (usual: $120), and this pass gives you access to all 14 nights. There’s the questionable free gift of the light-up horns with every purchase. Please do not wear this at the park with the lights switched on – it’s distracting and ruins the amazing lighting design of the scare zones and haunted houses.

Students can enjoy even greater discounts on the HHN7 admission pass. Only $48!

    What do you mean about the free gift and not to wear it at the park? Is it not allowed?

    • Dejiki September 17, 2017 at 12:34 pm #

      It is allowed, but wearing the horns with the lights switched on is distracting and ruins the experience for other guests.

  2. Audrey Tan September 17, 2017 at 12:25 pm #

    Why you say, “please do not wear the light up horn at hhn7” ?

    • Dejiki September 17, 2017 at 12:35 pm #

      Wearing the horns with the lights switched on is distracting and spoils the atmospheric lighting design of the scare zones and haunted houses.

  3. Cody September 17, 2017 at 7:25 pm #

    Couldn’t agree more on the light up horns. Love everything about the event in Singapore but it’s my one big pet peeve compared to when I go to Orlando or Hollywood. They absolutely ruin the atmosphere of the event and are distracting.
