For the first time, Universal Studios Hollywood, Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Singapore will closely work with Netflix to present a “Stranger Things” themed Halloween Horror Nights house.
What Happened at HHN7?
What To Expect From HHN8?
This year theme: Infinite Fear
This theme- Infinite Fear, inspired by the infinity insignia ∞, gives a preview to the fans. Expect an endless cycle of fear, thrills and countless scares in the park in the form of five haunted houses, three live shows, and two scare zones. The five haunted houses will be based on the critically acclaimed Netflix’s Stranger Things series, Asian folklore and Western scare acts.
About Stranger Things – A love letter to the supernatural classics of the 80’s, Stranger Things is the story of a young boy who vanishes into thin air. As friends, family and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces, and one very strange little girl.
5 HAUNTED HOUSES
1. Stranger Things
The highly-anticipated Stranger Things haunted house will feature the most number of rooms in a USS HHN haunted house to date, with 12 rooms depicting 12 different scenes from Season 1 of the series.
Fans will be transported into artfully recreated scenes and storyline, from the menacing Hawkins National Laboratory to the Byers home adorned with an erratic display of flashing Christmas lights and the eerie Upside Down woods.
Be careful where you tread in this Malay village – the Pontianak is waiting for you. Watch as the hair-raising tale of the infamous long-haired female vampiric ghost unfolds before your eyes, from how she was created, to the banana trees where she resides, to how she sniffs out her next victim in the laundry area.
Navigate your way through the Chinese-themed Pagoda of Peril, filled with malevolent demons and terrifying spirits trapped in this eternal prison, fighting in fury as they seek to find freedom. The most vicious of them all? The Yin demon, who yearns for eternal life and power.
4. The Haunting of Oiwa
Based on the iconic Japanese ghost story of Yotsuya, step back in time to the chilling Edo-era of Japan in The Haunting of Oiwa. Here, the Lady Oiwa has returned from the dead to seek revenge after being poisoned by her unfaithful husband.
Enter the world of Killuminati – the Chinese secret society of vampires that has existed for centuries – where mystery, controversy, and nightmares await. Watch out for never-before-seen stunts and expect lots of twists in USS HHN’s most interactive haunted house to date.
TWO SCARE ZONES
At USS HHN Scare Zones, fans can explore freely around the open areas, great for a brief respite in between your haunted house conquests.
Enter the ancient tribal man-hunters way of life in Cannibal, and witness how the bodies of rivals killed in revenge are being devoured.
2. Apocalypse: Earth
It’s chaos and mayhem at the Apocalypse: Earth zone as Mother Earth unleashes her most terrifying forces and takes over New York.
The live shows at USS HHN help to build up anticipation for the scare zones and haunted houses. Alternatively, they also allow you to cool off after non-stop adrenaline-pumping scares at both the scare zones and haunted houses.
Here are three live shows you can expect at HHN8.
When darkness falls at Eight Lake Psychiatric Hospital, fear rises. Make way through the unsettling, creepy halls of the hospital filled with screaming apparitions of unwilling patients.
2. DEAD Talk
Take a break from the screams and join the charismatic Gideon Grim, the Motivational Death Coach, as he captivates you with tips on highly effective scaring in DEAD Talks! DEAD Talks is an all-new, witty, seminar-style show with cutting-edge illusions, electrifying dancing, and acrobatics.
3. Blood and Bones
Each month, at half moon, the Chief of the tribe sacrifices their capture at the ancestral altar. The human sacrifice is possessed by the spirit of the ancestors, which gives the tribesmen extra strength when they devour him. Brace yourselves for this gruesome ritual of Blood & Bones that will turn your stomachs.
ZOMBIE LASER TAG
Back by popular demand since its debut last year, Zombie Laser Tag returns with an arena double the size. Expect more zombies, face greater obstacles and rev up for more shooting action, all in the company of a drill sergeant who will lead the way to ensure everyone gets out alive in the dark jungles.
This is an add-on experience to HHN8, which means an upcharge of S$38 per person is required to access the game. Each session can only accommodate a team of 4 persons, and each session lasts 15 minutes. (To be purchased at the attraction)
