Hot in this week’s Halloween Horror Nights 8 update: Stranger Things haunted house sneak peek, Apocalypse: Earth, Frequent Fear Pass, and more!

Apocalypse: Earth

Universal Studios Singapore Halloween Horror Nights 8 Before Dark update - Apocalypse: EARTH / New York overview

Gaia has finally emerged, and so have the forces of Nature which will take revenge at horror nights.

In a rather dramatic fashion, the whole of New York is overrun with giant branches and vines – and it looks nowhere done.

Two cars are bound by the trees.

Universal Studios Singapore Halloween Horror Nights 8 Before Dark update - Apocalypse: EARTH / Lava Trees

There are also “lava” variety of trees, masking dark secrets – probably all the trees have victims entwined in them.

What’s more exciting is this giant head made out of entangled branches. The entire stage area will be engulfed with projection effects.

Cannibal

More dwellings, more stone structures, and flags bearing their insignia.

Zombie Laser Tag

Things are shaping up rapidly at this year’s exciting Interactive VIP zone.

The row of crates from last week? It has doubled.

A zombie (or a hoard of them) might spring from these fences.

This wire fence stands out from everything. Maybe it’s the start, or the end. There’s a panel beside it.

And then there is this panel with the Infinity sign, just beside the Raptor Nest.

Universal Studios Singapore Halloween Horror Nights 8 Before Dark update - Zombie Laser Tag / Cameras

Stealthily added around the whole Jurassic Park are cameras and wireless transmitters, likely to conduct the Zombie Laser Tag experience safely and seamlessly. These implements also suggest that ZLT will make use of most of the Jurassic Park’s walkable area.

Special Thanks: TM and SN for sending in tips for park updates.

Stranger Things haunted house first look

EDIT: Universal Orlando images removed, as I already went for the preview of Singapore’s haunted house.

What I know is… Singapore’s haunted house will open with this epic ‘Stranger Things’ giant marquee. It’s almost three stories tall!

HHN8 Frequent Fear Pass – now ready

HHN8 Frequent Fear Pass is now available for early processing at the USS Membership Lobby. This is only for park guests with daytime access to the park – via a Day Pass or Annual/ Season Pass. For all other guests, please process your Frequent Fear Pass during Halloween Horror Nights 8 event nights (from 27 Sept 2018).

HHN8 Halloween Horror Nights 8 Stranger Things Frequent Fear Pass 2018

Those who bought their HHN8 Frequent Fear Pass during the ‘Limited Time Special’ sale can redeem a set of vouchers from USS Guest Services:

• HHN8 Single Universal Express Pass for Haunted House
• HHN8 Shot Glass with Drink
• 2x $5 Game Credit at Hollywood China Arcade
• Zombie Laser Tag Discount Voucher (Pay just $15 instead of $38)

The catch? These are only valid for use on specific event nights as printed on the vouchers, and they are all off-peak nights. Everyone will be gunning for the heavily discounted Zombie Laser Tag slots on 31 Oct, because the offer would only be valid that night after 10PM.

Haunted HHN8 Bus Stop

HHN8 Halloween Horror Nights 8 3D Bus Stop Ad

Every year, there will be an outstanding outdoor ad promoting Horror Nights. For HHN7, we had the somewhat controversial Memorial for Southpoint Mall. This year, it’s an eerie, floating set of shelves.

Sealed with a web of red threads entangled with Chinese coins, the shelves are precariously crammed with talismans, urns, altars and offerings for the dead.
