As light gave way to darkness, Sunway Lagoon opened its gates to those who dared walk its grounds into the uncertainty of the night. From the 7th till the 31st of October, Nights of Fright 4 (NOF4) will bring visitors face to face with their fears as local urban legends, Hollywood icons, and a modern dystopian story are brought to life!
This year, Asia’s Best Attraction boasts, “FRIGHTS, FEAR, and FUN” through only the best horror themes surrounding Asia, Modern Dystopian, and Hollywood among others as it manifests itself to present a ghastly den of eight haunted houses, six scare zones, and 11 after-dark amusement rides.
I was ecstatic when I was invited to the media launch a few days back of this enthralling and frightening event. I had an expectation that it will be bigger and better this year compared to last year! And, truly Nights of Fright 4 did not disappoint at all. We were greeted by ghouls, zombies and ghosts walking around, dressed to their nines in the most realistic costume ever. My friends were even chased around by some of these 'mascots'!
This year, we braved our fears and checked out all the ghost houses, designed to scare the living crap of you. Screams start with CHAONEI NO. #81 in UV3D: Beijing’s most famous haunted house as a tragic concoction of love forlorn and guilt possesses a promising Opera singer during her torrid affair with the husband of the house. I liked this one as we had to wear special effects 3D glasses and guess what, this makes all the props appear more real than it already is.
The Asian themes continue with DIYU – JOURNEY OF JUDGEMENT. Take a walk and delve into the unknown realm where your journey to the next life is determined by walking through your fate on the bridge. Then, there is the ever familiar yet sinister MALAYA HIGH SCHOOL where a crime so horrific has taken place in the classroom upstairs. Explore and discover the debauchery that has since deemed tightly closed, until now! This one was epic as we were caught off guard many times through this haunting journey back to the old times.
In KEVIL HILL, there is a cold evil presented at the highest scare intensity through a chilly underlying aura as this Modern Dystopian world takes shape. Uncover a world which is a mix of cryogenically frozen zombies, brought to chilling half-life following a massive explosion in the mysterious Kevil Hill Cryonic Corporation headquarters.
For those into Hollywood legends, the world’s most famous ‘hantu-crew’ help you wind your way through a very spooky New York in THE GHOSTBUSTERS ADVENTURE LIVE! Indulge in your fears even further with encounters at HORRORWOOD STUDIOS. Rounding off the haunted houses is the spooky ANGOSCIA THEATER, a mix of fashion and fear, and of course, our own ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE celebrating everyone’s favourite undead.
Once you're done with the haunted houses, take a rest from scare-ville by enjoying the park rides such as CAROUSEL, APACHE POTS, PIRATE’S REVENGE, COLORADO SPLASH, TOMAHAWK, WAGON WHEEL, LOST CITY OF GOLD SCREAM COASTER, FUN FAIR, GRAND CANYON RIVER RAPIDS, BUTCH CASSIDY TRAIL and VULTURES.
