Boo ya! Here’s where to get your spook on for Halloween. Don’t worry, they’re not really haunted.
You like Halloween but you’re too chicken to go to a real haunted house? Fair enough. Thanks to capitalism, All Hallows Eve has become a sort of festive season and there’s plenty of scares and more treat than tricks to be had at these fun haunted houses and Halloween activities in Singapore.
Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Singapore
Until 29 Oct
Singapore’s biggest Halloween attraction, Halloween Horror Nights returns this year with even more ghouls and haunted houses for its seventh edition. Following relevant and relatable events, you get to traipse around a haunted shopping mall (think collapsing ceilings in major malls), chase your popstar dreams (K-Pop fever, anyone?) with a twist, go on a zombie laser tag and more.

A Halloween Treat at Quayside Isle
Just for Halloween, Quayside Isle at Sentosa Cove will be transformed into a spooky locale for some light-hearted family fun. You can roam the night with Dracula or visit the Sabio Haunted House!

Horror Haunt: School of Horrors at Cathay Malls
19-22 (The Cathay) and 26-29 Oct (Cineleisure Orchard)
Make your way through spine-chilling, school-themed rooms to uncover clues that can help solve this mystery. Backstory: It all started with a school night walk gone wrong, and a girl was found dismembered in the school toilet with her eye balls gouged out. Well, of course she’s going to come back as an angry spirit. If you dare walk through the haunted school grounds where she’s hanging out somewhere, you may win prizes. Fair deal.
Happening at various locations including The Cathay and Cineleisure Orchard.
No Face Terrarium at Oriole Coffee + Bar

Enter the earthly realm of #OrioleCreates No Face Terrarium, and create a spiritual forest with a spooky figurine, airplant, lush moss and a glass vessel. At the end the workshop, participants can satiate their hunger with light refreshments made by forest spirits.

The Time Zombies competition at Bugis Junction and Bugis+
Shoppers are invited to step into the shoes of detectives travelling through time, hot on the heels of Dr Virago, a time-travelling mad scientist, and stop him in his bid to spark off a zombie apocalypse. Faced with a frenzied gang of flesh-eating zombies coming at them from all angles determined to tear them to bits, players are challenged to stay calm and aim for consecutive headshots that will exponentially increase their scores. Plus, did we tell you? It’s all going to be in Virtual Reality (VR).
