Prepare for spine-chilling spectacles and legendary monsters this Halloween season.
If you manage to escape from the serial killers, don’t celebrate just yet. With two show stages and a haunted theatre, NOF9 promises even more nightmarish encounters.
Expect to be caught in the middle of a botched ritual led by a malevolent witch queen or to cross paths with a vengeful Little Red Riding Hood.
Perhaps the most harrowing experience would be finding yourself in the midst of two zombie hordes. As you flee from the ravenous undead, reminiscent of those from The Walking Dead, be on the lookout for the robed Asian zombies. Don’t let their stiff gait fool you, as they will pounce when you least expect it.
TERRIFYING TALES FROM ASIA
The power of cultural familiarity is the reason for NOF9’s heavy emphasis on presenting terrors close to home. Grab a bite at Madame Zhu’s Noodle House, designed to resemble the restaurants of Hong Kong. If you’re finding the quiet atmosphere unsettling, there’s a reason: Beware of the unhinged chef who’s bent on serving up his sinister menu.
Over at Animalium, you’ll explore a toxic wasteland where survivors have mutated into were-creatures resembling the animals of the Chinese zodiac.
The scares at NOF9 are not limited to designated areas; the entire park has been transformed into a canvas for horror. “Our Fields of Fear are designed to plunge every guest into a nightmarish realm,” said Mr Ho. “Be warned: A pocong (shrouded corpse) or a pontianak could be lurking around the corner.” Test your mettle at Sunway Lagoon’s Nights of Fright 9, happening from Sep 29 till Oct 31, every Friday to Sunday from 7.30pm to 11.30pm.
Admission tickets start from RM128 (S$37.25), with the option to add an Xpress Pass to skip queues at selected rides and attractions for RM98. The VIP Package, which costs RM298, includes a themed dinner, event memorabilia and exclusive photo opportunities with the cast.
