Scare fests and parties to check out in Singapore this Halloween

[Updated on Oct 19] Halloween in Singapore is not so much about the trick or treatin’, but the scare fests and parties that’ll be littered across the city are pretty spot on (after the initial queuing up and all, of course). If you’re looking for a good scare (or Halloween-themed party), here are some spine-chilling events for you to check out.

Halloween Horror Nights (Sep 30-Oct 31)

Universal Studios Singapore is pulling all the stops for its sixth edition of the Halloween Horror Nights, with a record number of haunted houses, thrilling rides and more, all circling the central theme of familiar Singaporean folk tales such as the ghastly Pontianak and the creepy Old Changi Hospital, as well as other Asian and Western horror stories such as DeFeo Witches of the Salem Witch house and Japan’s notorious Suicide Forest. Tickets start from $65.

Then, end the week on Oct 29 with the ultimate Halloween Party, “Asia Ghost Stories”, where you expect pontianaks, sadakos and even a fortune teller.

Museum of Horrors VI: The Doll Factory (Oct 26-Nov 6)

*SCAPE will be setting up a horror house based on a true, horrific story. A doll maker kept his family members “alive” by killing them and turning them into dolls. Be prepared to witness the undead as you take a “tour” around his factory with seven spine-chilling chambers such as the slaughterhouse (where you might be the next victim) and darkness maze, where the only way out is to go through it). Grab your early bird tickets for $9.90. 

Creatures of The Night (Oct 28)

&SONS is whipping up a devilishly delicious feast for the night, with the quintessential Halloween icon, Jack-o-lantern, taking the limelight. Enjoy a medley of pumpkin-flavored dishes, such as halibut with pumpkin, pumpkin pasta and pumpkin and chocolate pie. Wash it down with their Halloween-inspired cocktails such as the Frankenstein (made using tequila, Midori, lychee liqueur, lime, cherry and lychee) and the Vampire’s Punch, a mixture of Lambrusco, Campari, gin, orange, pomegranate and soda water. 

Sub-LIME Halloween Feast (Oct 28-29)

Lime at ParkRoyal on Pickering is also jumping on the bandwagon with their Halloween-themed dinner feast. Eat your fear away through their eerie delicacies in the shape of creepy crawlies, goblins and ghosts. End your horrific feast on a sweet and sinful note with their Blood Splatter Cheesecake and Death by Chocolate cake which sounds like a pleasant way to die. 

Battle Royale Halloween 2016 (Oct 29)

This year, The Lo & Behold group moves its Halloween party from The White Rabbit to Overeasy Orchard.
