Watch the typically vibrant Sunway Lagoon do a 180 for a Halloween special and transform into an eerie cursed land where demons, spirits, and spooky creatures roam freely.

The main highlights of Nights of Fright VI are definitely the haunted houses, and here’s a peek at what the 8 heart-stopping haunted attractions are all about:

Nights of Fright haunted houses

Walk through the dark and misty maze of the woods that the Wendigo, the legend in the mist, calls home. With an insatiable hunger for human flesh, the Wendigo masks itself in the dark waiting for just the right moment to pounce on you.

2. Phobia

Welcome to Phobia, home to clowns who are ‘delighted’ to have you as a guest. These are no ordinary clowns, however, and certainly not ones you’d invite to a kid’s birthday party. If you didn’t have coulrophobia (the fear of clowns) before entering Phobia, you will now.

3. Slaughterhouse 13

Just when you think slaughterhouses couldn’t get creepier, imagine finding human bodies hanging on the hooks inside the freezer. Try not to scream as you pass through the eerie Slaughterhouse 13 with its blood-smeared walls and dead bodies hanging above you.

4. Ghost Face

Who could forget the iconic Scream face mask that we’re all so familiar with. Just when you think the fear factor’s worn off, this funhouse of fear will turn it into a nightmare for you all over again. Make sure you don’t let your guard down.

5. ScaryTales Theatre

We’ve all been there before. Sitting around inside a dimly lit house, or in the woods sitting around in a circle, watching and listening to the storyteller cast their spell through a frightening tale. So come in, and sit down and enter the world of scary tales of pontianak, toyo, pocong and more.

6. Zombie Zoo

The Zombie Zoo, it’s out of control. Zombie mayhem, humans and animals, all terrorizing guests as they set foot upon this very scary zoo. They don’t call them the walking dead for no reason!
