FROM OUR PARTNERS AT RESORTS WORLD SENTOSA: Get Your Chills and Thrills at Universal Studios Singapore's Halloween Horror Nights 8

Walk into a 'Stranger Things' haunted house or play Zombie Laser Tag.

Universal Studios Singapore's Halloween Horror Nights 8, considered by many as Singapore’s largest and most popular Halloween event, is back for another run from September 27 to October 31.

Bearing the theme “Infinite Fear,” it will showcase five haunted houses, three live shows, and two scare zones. Halloween Horror Nights 8 at Resorts World Sentosa is set to be bigger and scarier than ever—an event horror fans shouldn't miss.  

New Stranger Things haunted house

This year’s Halloween celebration differs from previous editions as Universal Studios Singapore collaborates with Netflix to bring to life the critically acclaimed series, Stranger Things.

The Stranger Things haunted house features the most number of thematic rooms to date. Fans will be transported to 12 recreated scenes and storylines—from the menacing Hawkins National Laboratory, to the Byers house and its flashing Christmas lights, to the eerie Upside Down forest.

Haunted sets featuring Asian horror stories

Halloween Horror Nights 8 also showcases Asian horror—a hit among local guests—in different haunted houses.

Enter the world of Killuminati—a Chinese secret society of vampires that has existed for centuries—where mystery, controversy, and nightmares await. Witness never-before-seen stunts and expect numerous twists in this interactive house, where even the bravest souls may end up in different secret rooms.

Two haunted houses will unravel the spine-tingling narratives of two different classic Asian ghost folklore: the Japanese ghost story of Yotsuya, and the legend of the Pontianak. Step back in time to the chilling Edo period of Japan in The Haunting of Oiwa. Come face-to-face with Lady Oiwa, who returns from the dead seeking revenge after being poisoned by her unfaithful husband.

In the Pontianak haunted house, thrill-seekers will need to tread carefully in a Malay village to survive the various hair-raising scenes and stories of the infamous long-haired female vampiric ghost.

Enter the Chinese-themed Pagoda of Peril, with malevolent demons and terrifying spirits roaming inside, and fighting viciously in a quest for freedom. Watch out for the vicious Yin demon that yearns for eternal life and power.

Western-themed scare zones, live shows

Experience chaos at Apocalypse: Earth, where Mother Earth unleashes her most terrifying forces and takes over New York. Watch an ancient tribe of man-hunters in Cannibal, where bodies of rivals killed in revenge are devoured.

See the charismatic Gideon Grim, the Motivational Death Coach, captivate guests as he provides tips on effective scare tactics in DEAD Talks. This all-new, witty, seminar-style show at Pantages Hollywood Theater has cutting-edge illusions, dancing, and acrobatics.

In Scaremony, fear rises when darkness falls at Eight Lake Psychiatric Hospital. The show, held at Hollywood Lagoon Stage, will make participants walk through the unsettling, creepy halls of the hospital haunted by screaming apparitions of unwilling patients.

Brace yourself for a gruesome ritual in Blood & Bones in the Cannibal zone. Each month, at half moon, the chief of a tribe sacrifices a captive at the altar. The human sacrifice is possessed by the spirit of the ancestors, which gives the tribesmen extra strength after they devour him.

Zombie Laser Tag back by popular demand

Zombie Laser Tag (additional P1,482 per participant), which debuted last year, returns with an arena double the size of its first run. Each team of eight participants will work together on one mission: to fend off and “kill” zombies in infested areas.

Participants can expect more zombies, face greater obstacles, and anticipate more action—all while being lead by a drill sergeant who will ensure everyone gets out alive. 

Original horror films to jump-start Halloween

For the first time, Universal Studios Singapore will produce a series of short, original horror films leading up to Halloween Horror Nights 8.

These will showcase stories of some of the supernatural characters featured in this year’s haunted houses. These videos will be released from July to August on Resorts World Sentosa’s Facebook, Instagram, blog, Twitter, and YouTube.

The Halloween event will run for 18 nights, including an additional night on September 27. Early-bird ticket sales will be until August 12 at P2,145 (non-peak) and P2,535 (peak), while standard event tickets are available at P2,262 (non-peak) and P2,652 (peak) each.

Fans can purchase the R.I.P. Tour that includes event admission, a guide who will share insider stories and escort fans to the various experiences, VIP access to haunted houses, private meet-and-greet sessions with creepy characters, and more. Guests can also enjoy many of the theme park’s rides and attractions.
