This Halloween event list simply wouldn’t be complete without including the local favourite by Universal Studios Singapore. With its sixth year in action, the line-up for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights may just be the scariest one yet!

Showcasing two scare zones and five haunted houses, Halloween Horror Nights 6 features new horrors close to home, such as Old Changi Hospital and Hawker Centre Massacre. Other attractions, such as the Salem Witch House and Hu Li’s Inn, promises to deliver the same level of fright to those with the courage to venture forth!

There’ll also be special spine-chilling shows revolving around Lady Death, their official mascot for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights. Rides will stay open as well – try to outrun that persistent evil spirit with a thrilling ride on the Battlestar Galactica or the Revenge of the Mummy!

Also a favourite for their local Halloween events, *SCAPE has not been slack under the pressure. Returning this year with a total revamp of their Ground Theatre, the Museum of Horrors unleashes the terror of the Doll Factory to the public!

You’ll be guests of the Doll Master, a doll-maker who murdered his whole family to preserve them as dolls for his personal collection. Run through seven different mazes, with his puppets and restless spirits waiting to spook you at every corner. Try not to get too lost, else you’ll end up as another doll on the shelf!

If navigation isn’t your strong suit, why not instead catch a movie screening of The Conjuring or Dead Silence at the *SCAPE Gallery? There’s a blood donation drive as well, organised by the Singapore Red Cross Society. Don’t worry; they’re not going to hand over the blood bags to the vampires. Or are they?

Select nights on 26 October till 6 November
10.30am to 10.30pm
Early bird tickets priced at $9.90 till 9 October, standard tickets will cost $15
