From 29 September to 29 October, come face-to-face with a frenzied gang of flesh-eating zombies lunging from every corner, enter the ruins of a mall filled with vengeful spirits and more. Singapore’s premier scare event, Universal Studios Singapore’s Halloween Horror Nights, is back for the seventh edition which will bring to life the darkest and most twisted horrors ever unleashed!
Themed after seven new incarnations of sins present in modern day life – Cruelty, Deception, Malice, Manipulation, Narcissism, Perversion and Obsession – these sins are embodied in seven iconic characters called the Sinisters. Guests can expect heart-pounding moments with five terrifying haunted houses, two scare zones and two killer shows, in addition to many of the park’s exciting rides and attractions open till late.
Mr Jason Horkin, Senior Vice President of Attractions at Resorts World Sentosa, said: “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. Our teams have put together the latest in technology, science and stagecraft into this year’s edition to create truly original scares and the best entertainment for guests. This is the most technologically advanced edition with an all-new zombie laser tag that combines brainwave technology for the most immersive experience. We look forward to transporting guests into the most gripping moments in horror history with Halloween Horror Nights 7.”
Fans can expect a horror-filled, interactive nightmare with the all-new Zombie Laser Tag Experience, supported by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB). Teams of four will work together for one mission: to fend off and “kill” deranged zombies in infested areas with laser tag gear that promises to be no child’s play.
The live-action zombie experience incorporates brainwave technology to create an experience like no other. Select participants will wear headbands that sense concentration levels to help unlock clues in their quest. Guests will be able to upgrade their tickets at S$38 each to enjoy this thrilling experience.
Halloween Horror Nights 7 starts at 7.30pm and runs for 14 select nights across five weekends. As part of an early bird promotion available now till 5 September, guests can purchase tickets at S$55 each, or purchase three tickets to enjoy one free. A standard event ticket costs S$68.

This year’s edition features original scares and storylines that will resonate with local and international horror fans.

Featuring death-defying stunts performed by international acts, this show is set to leave everyone on the edge of their seats.
