Photos of TERROR-Cotta Empress, a haunted house attraction at USS Halloween Horror Nights 7, are featured here to showcase its design and atmosphere. This is also a page for haunt fans to share their thoughts.

Photography and video recording is not permitted inside any Haunted Houses at Universal Studios Singapore during Halloween Horror Nights.


Overview and Thoughts

This is without a doubt the scariest haunted house at HHN7. There are several detours, dark corridors with hidden mechanisms, and a lot of draped fabric. Going through the catacombs and the palace chambers is a long, harrowing journey – at least it is a scenic one with its incredible set design. Scares will come from all directions, and there are clever tricks deployed.

Story wise, there are pieces that aren’t that clear. We know that the Empress is indeed cruel and will do anything to become the most powerful ruler in China (or everywhere). But why is she motivated to do this? Was the terracotta army built in her mausoleum because she was already the Empress, or did she usurp the throne when she returned from the grave?

Terracotta soldiers guard the sandy entrance of the mausoleum. Beware – some of them are not mere statues.
