Headlining this event is an all-new action show at Hollywood called Jurassic World: ROAR. As John Hammond would say, it looks “Really spectacular. Spared no expense.”

The stage is the largest that USS has ever built for a day-time show, and it is filled with a bewildering number of parts for stunts and dramatic action. Many doors, ladders, platforms. And of course the T-Rex is going to be the largest effect here – will it be bursting through the gates in the middle or casually lunge from above?

Two pairs of padded bars that resemble Kit-Kat. Lots of grab bars and hidden openings on both sides of the stage.

Look at the size of the black box behind the stage – for the gigantic T-Rex figure (possibly a puppet).

The ‘Explore’ part of the ‘Explore & Roar’ event will take place across several zones in the park. Some dino footprints were spotted last week in the park, leading towards The Lost World/ Jurassic Park zone.

Halloween Horror Nights 8 haunted houses update

Just about 4 months to go before infinite fear is unleashed at Halloween Horror Nights 8, and USS has started building some houses. You can prepare yourself by grabbing some ‘Limited Time Special’ discounted HHN8 tickets and packages, while stocks last. Check out my 2018 Event Guide for HHN8 ticket prices, dates and other event info.

Universal Studios Singapore Park Update - Halloween Horror Nights 8 haunted house construction update

While no new info was released since the HHN x Stranger Things reveal, it is likely that USS will at least match last year’s line-up of 5 haunted houses and 2 scare zones. The Waterworld queue and Jurassic Park backstage areas already have the structural works up. The backstage site behind New York is also being cleared out. That, Soundstage 28 and the Revenge of the Mummy exterior queue rounds up 5 possible spaces for haunted houses.
