The iconic Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Singapore is back. Themed 'Infinite Fear', this eighth edition is set to be bigger and scarier than ever!

As usual, you can expect a never-ending cycle of fear, thrills, and countless scares! Halloween Horror Nights 8 will let you experience some of the most horrifying tales and creatures from both Asian and Western folklore. This time, there's gonna be five terrifying haunted houses, three killer live shows, and two scare zones!

Brace yourself for a hauntingly good time at Halloween Horror Nights 8, with all these spine-chilling experiences:

1. Universal Studios Singapore's first-ever tie-up with a TV series will transport you into the mysterious world of Netflix's 'Stranger Things'

This highly-anticipated collaboration with Netflix has resulted in an epic 'Stranger Things' themed haunted house that will feature the most number of thematic rooms to date!

You'll be transported right into the heart of 12 artfully recreated scenes and storylines from the popular series, including the menacing Hawkins National Laboratory, the Byers home adorned with an erratic display of flashing Christmas lights, and the eerie Upside Down woods.

2. A Chinese secret society of vampires that has existed for centuries awaits you in the 'Killuminati' haunted house

Mystery, nightmares, and controversy are everywhere as you navigate your way through vampire-laden secret rooms in the most interactive haunted house ever created in the history of Universal Studios Singapore’s Halloween Horror Nights. Watch out for never-before-seen stunts and expect lots of twists - even the bravest souls may end up in different secret rooms!

3. The legend of the infamous 'Pontianak' comes alive as she gets her very own haunted house for the first time

You will need to tread carefully through a Malay village as you survive the various hair-raising scenes and stories of the Pontianak unfolding before your eyes, from how she was created, to the banana trees where she resides, and the laundry area where she sniffs out the next victim.

4. Step back in time to the chilling Edo-era of Japan in 'The Haunting of Oiwa'

This haunted house centered around the Japanese ghost story of Yotsuya will bring you face-to-face with Lady Oiwa who returns from the dead seeking revenge after being poisoned by her unfaithful husband.

5. The Chinese-themed 'Pagoda of Peril' is filled with trapped malevolent demons and terrifying spirits roaming viciously around the prison

Can you make your way through as these demonic creatures fight in fury to seek their freedom? You'll also have to face Yin Ling, the vicious counter of Yang, which yearns and longs for eternal life and power.

6. The two scare zones are completely different from each other, but both are equally horrifying

In 'Apocalypse: Earth', you'll be thrown into chaos as Mother Earth takes over New York by unleashing her most terrifying forces.

Meanwhile in 'Cannibal', you'll have to witness an ancient tribe of man-hunters devouring the bodies of their rivals killed in revenge.

7. The three killer live shows are filled with scares, action, and thrilling delights

When darkness falls at Eight Lake Psychiatric Hospital, fear rises. In this show, you'll make your way through the unsettling, creepy halls of a hospital filled with screaming apparitions of unwilling patients.

Blood & 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 yourself for this ritual that will turn your stomach.

DEAD Talks
Take a break from all the screaming and join the charismatic Gideon Grim, the Motivational Death Coach, as he captivates with tips on highly effective scaring. This is an all-new, witty, seminar-style show with cutting-edge illusions, electrifying dancing, and acrobatics.

8. The heart-pumping Zombie Laser Tag is back by popular demand with a new arena that's double the size

Grab your friends to form a team of 8 and work together on an all-important mission: to fend off and “kill” zombies in infested areas. This time, you can 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 makes it out of the dark jungles alive. Separate charges apply.
