Go Behind The Screams and uncover some secrets of Halloween Horror Nights 7‘s haunted houses and characters.

Behind The Screams Tour (BTS) is a 1.5-hour tour held during Halloween Horror Nights 7. Guests will get to walk inside 2 haunted houses (without performers), and see how the park brings some of its scary characters alive with costume technology.

The two haunted houses for the lights-on tour are DEATH Mall and Inside The Mind. Photography is allowed inside the haunted houses during the tour. However, video recording is not permitted.

Each tour group is kept small, up to 12 people, which offers guests with ample time to look around the set design and props at their own pace.

While the work lights are switched on within the houses, so are most of the special effects and show lights. This means a less frightening tour of the haunted houses that also doesn’t give too much away.

Between tour stops, you’ll also get to learn other fun facts about this year’s Halloween Horror Nights. Along the way, the tour guide will also inform you about the locations of the haunted houses, so you won’t miss any of them if you decide to stay for the night.

Once all the other tour groups arrive, the experts from USS Entertainment department will go through the process and techniques necessary to prep the scare actors during the event. You’ll get to touch and feel the prosthetics, moulds and even see some prototypes during this segment.

The last segment of BTS Tour: We get to see the final touches for a character, and this time Pandora from the Slit Face Girls G-Pop group (Make The Cut haunted house) is the special star.

No, the park does not use real blood, and the special make-up isn’t applied with superglue. You’ll find out what the make-up artists really use during the demostration.

The tour ends with an exclusive meet-and-greet session with Pandora.


This is the third time the park is offering backstage tours during Halloween, and the HHN7 tour is a huge step up. What would be great: An extended tour option that includes walkthroughs in all haunted houses. Universal Orlando does this (the tour with more houses costs more, of course) and perhaps with enough feedback, USS could consider to do the same.

  • Headsets are provided, allowing tour guests to listen to their tour guide clearly and at a distance.
  • The tour guide now offers detailed explanations of the backstory and various rooms in the haunted houses.

    Do we get to keep the VIP card and landyard after the tour or do we have to return it ?

    • Dejiki October 4, 2017 at 6:09 pm #

      You have to return it. You will get a ‘BTS Tour Survivor’ pin badge as a souvenir.

    Hi, can I just buy the behind the scream tour without going for the hhn event?

  3. Michelle October 6, 2017 at 10:14 am #

    Hi, can I just buy behind the scream tour alone? Or must I also buy hhn 7 pass?

    • Dejiki October 6, 2017 at 12:16 pm #

      As mentioned in this post, you can book the BTS Tour without HHN7 admission ticket. They are separate experiences.

    i didn’t enjoy the BTS this year, it was a “look here, look there” and no tech or background info. and with the receiver, the guide had the tendency to leave people behind >.<

    • WY October 15, 2017 at 4:14 pm #

      Agreed.

      Felt the guide was in a world of his own, and did not have much interaction with the guests.

      The guide I had was also unsure of the 7 Deadly Sins, and mentioned Deceptionists a few times instead of Deception.

      Entire tour (at least the front part of it) felt rushed and lacklustre. Understand that we aren’t paying for the more premium RIP Tour but the experience leaves a slightly bitter taste.

    Hi Dejiki

    A few questions, if you may so kindly oblige.

    1. Would going for the BTS tour allow you to wait inside the park earlier, with the VIP guests, for admission into HHN7, or will the BTS tour guests exit the park and join the regular line?

    2. Is Pandora the only available character for the Meet & Greet?

    Thank you.

    • Dejiki October 11, 2017 at 7:29 am #

      Hi WY,

      1. If you have a valid HHN7 Admission ticket you can request to your BTS Guide be escorted to the Stay & Scream waiting area.

      2. Yes, like past years, only one character will be at the makeup demo and Meet and Greet.

      • WY October 12, 2017 at 12:29 am #

        Thanks for the prompt reply Dejiki!

        I understand that only one character will be present for the Meet & Greet. What I meant is whether Pandora is a fixed character for all the BTS tours, or will they rotate other icons such as Father Time and etc. I am asking this as one of my friends is keen on meeting part of the Slit Face Girls. Would you be able to advise base on past experiences?

        Thank you once again.

        • Dejiki October 12, 2017 at 12:51 pm #

          Hi WY,

          In the past, it is the same character throughout.

  6. WY October 15, 2017 at 4:10 pm #

    Went for the tour on Friday, 13 October.

    Not sure if there was miscommunication between departments, but BTS guests have to exit the park to join the regular line unless:

    1. You hold a Stay & Scream Pass
    2. You are part of an RIP Tour
    3. You hold a Frequent Fear Pass.

    This was communicated erroneously through the staff whom I purchased the BTS tour ticket, who assured me I will be able to stay inside the park after the tour and will be granted priority entrance. 🙁

    • Ng Yi-Sheng October 23, 2017 at 10:12 am #

      I was a BTS ticket holder without an RIP, Frequent Fear or Stay and Scream pass, and they let me stay on in Mel’s diner. In fact, they encouraged me to—I actually wanted to go to the Malaysian food court!
