￼￼Fear Has Found A New Home
Universal Studios Singapore® Introduces Halloween Horror Nights®
Mayhem, fear and evil will be unleashed when Universal Studios Singapore unveils Halloween Horror Nights, which promises to be the largest Halloween event ever staged in Southeast Asia. Never before has any Halloween event in the region featured such a catalog of experiences in a single location, resulting in a massive scare-labyrinth featuring a brand new haunted house, multiple scare zones, a selection of Universal Studios Singapore‟s theme park rides and attractions and a street party.
Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Singapore will build on Universal‟s decades of experience in creating entertaining, intense and fun Halloween events. Halloween Horror Nights began 21 years ago at Universal Studios Florida and is now a global sensation, with spectacular events at Universal Orlando Resort, Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Studios Singapore.
Each year, Universal‟s creative experts transform theme parks into completely different night- time environments filled with horror-themed experiences that include haunted houses, special „scare zones‟ and hundreds of specially trained actors to bring Halloween characters to life. These events are intense, scary and fun.
Halloween Horror Nights will run for seven nights over two weekends, from 20 to 22 October and 27 to 30 October 2011, from 8 pm to 12 midnight each evening. Halloween Horror Nights is a separately ticketed event and not included within regular theme park admission. Daytime theme park guests will be able to upgrade their daytime park admission tickets in order to re- enter the park for Halloween Horror Nights.
Ms Andrea Teo, Vice President of Entertainment at Resorts World Sentosa, said: “Universal Studios Singapore‟s Halloween Horror Nights will pull out all the stops to make this Southeast Asia‟s largest, most intense and most horrifying Halloween event ever produced. The scale, budget and concept will raise the bar on Halloween events in the region. “Halloween Horror Nights is modeled after the long running and highly-successful events at our sister parks, Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood – which create a level of fear that has never before been experienced in this region. We are thrilled to introduce the event here in Singapore. Halloween Horror Nights will be the event-of-choice and guests will not be disappointed,” Ms Teo added.
From the haunted house and character design, to auditions, casting, costuming and prosthetics, work is already underway in making this multi-million dollar production the biggest headliner in Southeast Asia‟s selection of Halloween events this year.
Universal Studios Singapore prides itself on developing fully immersive experiences that allow guests to „Live The Movies‟. Until now, horror fans have only known what they see on screen. Halloween Horror Nights will let them experience the thrill of being trapped in a horror film – and live to talk about it.
Welcoming guests to the event is the Director, a sadistic filmmaker who thrives on macabre movie-making and filming tortured subjects. He will greet guests as they enter through the looming gates. Once inside, guests will be cast for their final cut.
As guests navigate through the park, they will „step right up‟ to a midway of mayhem, escape from the pandemonium-filled streets of a post-apocalyptic metropolis, and come face-to-face with deformed carriers of a flesh-eating plague.
The main attraction within the event is an elaborate haunted house – with an Asian twist. Located inside one of Universal Studios Singapore‟s soundstages, guests will enter a dilapidated Peranakan mansion which, to this day, is still haunted by a demented matriarch.
Select rides and attractions, including Revenge of the Mummy®, Battlestar Galactica® and Accelerator, will be operating, making it the only Halloween event in the region with theme park rides.
Tickets for the event, priced at S$60, will be available from 1 September 2011 onwards. Special „RIP Tour‟ packages, Resorts World Sentosa hotel guest specials and group discounts are also available. Discounts are also available for Universal Studios Singapore annual pass holders and daytime theme park guests.
