Universal Studios Singapore continues tradition with Halloween Horror Nights 2017

Universal Studios Singapore continues tradition with Halloween Horror Nights 2017
September 23, 2017

Universal Studios Singapore is expanding its tradition of Halloween events with new Halloween Hollywood Night attractions to be presented at weekends from 29th September to 29th October.

Now in its seventh year, Universal Studios Singapore’s Halloween events will feature 500 actors from 15 countries spread over five haunted houses, two scare zones, two live shows and an all new live-action zombie laser tag experience.

Themed around new incarnations of the Seven Deadly sins - Cruelty, Deception, Malice, Manipulation, Narcissism, Perversion and Obsession, the events will also feature an interactive zombie laser tag, wherein teams of four will work together to ‘kill’ zombie figures.

The interactivity will be based around one of the four participants wearing a headband which will sense concentration levels to help unlock clues.

The haunted houses include a retail themed ‘Death Mall’ and a K-pop themed haunted house with fame-crazed wannabes.

Jason Horkin, Senior Vice President of Attractions at Resorts World Sentosa, explains "this year's theme is among the most disturbing ones, drawing upon seven new incarnations of deadly sins to reflect the zeitgeist of today's society where people are preoccupied with individualism, beauty and power."

All new live shows have also been created for this year's edition. In a laboratory, a story of plague doctors is narrated, who used humans as test subjects to find cures during the Black Death, one of the most devastating pandemics in human history. It will feature death defying stunts performed by international experts.

Universal Studios Singapore’s Halloween Horror Nights have won Singapore Tourism Board's Best Leisure Event award for three years in a row.
