In the ghoulish month of October, Halloween Horror Spirits is back bigger and scarier than ever before, for only five nights! on, 19 October (Media preview included), and 24-27 October 2013.
As the Genting Theme Park reopens its doors, they reveal five horror attractions, all touching on different aspects of horror, from childlike hauntings to demons and zombies. I will try to keep the photos to a minimum as I don't want to spoil the fun for you :p
It was my first time going for their Halloween preview, so I was quite excited to see what Genting had in store for us. After a well fed dinner, we were ushered to the Theme Park where we were given a first hand view of what was in store for us.
A quick group photo of some of the bloggers who went for the Halloween event. I was the designated photographer between le bb and I, so you wouldn't see me in most of the pics whereas he will be in most everyone :P
First, we walked through a lane where there were drawings on the wall (Sinister inspired), with songs playing from Mama. It was quite creepy, especially when we were faced with signs that told us to keep going, and not look back.
*side track* I wonder how long it took them to paint the walls like this, and I can tell, the staff sure had an awesome time doing it.
the Haunted Playground.
Legends have passed through the years that the playground was once a fun place to visit until criminal cases take place. Tell yourselves that the shivers down your spice, and the goosebumps popping all over your body is due to the cold, but deep down you know its because of all the eerie laughing and clapping where there is seemingly no one in sight.
The Annabelle doll from the Conjuring. Le bb doing what he does best -.-"
If you want to play in this playground, then you better adhere to the Rules and Regulations as stipulated in the playground.
Test your mettle in this fortress of notorius criminals. Only the creepiest beings are incarcerated. They are allowed to roam and lurk in the dark spaces, and as you step into their surroundings, be reminded that horrors lurk behind every corner.
The City of Walkers
This is a deserted town decimated by a catastrophic plague and occupied by mutated, vampire link beings awaits. But enter at your own risk, because once the walkers prey on you, there is almost no chance of escape.
Captioned off bb: "Too bad I'm outside" LOL
It was a pretty good place to walkabout, as there were many different types of zombies walking around, there was a mom carrying a baby which has been ripped out of her womb, a prisoner dragging part of a hand, a decapitated zombie carrying his head, and many more.
At staggered intervals, there was also a stage show and some running around by the zombies as they acted out a sketch. It was pretty interesting :)
Taking you to circe 1930s, meet twisted hawkers peddling cursed wares and the undead hopping by, searching for fresh meat where they can find it. Behind this city steeped in history, tradition and timeless charm, lives a story that you'd wish remained untold.
There was another place that I didn't manage to edit the photos for, and that place is the "Kisah Rumah Puaka" where it's a ghostly abode once inhabited by a family possesed by evil spirits. One stormy night, dark forces spread through the entire kampung, leaving many unsolved mysteries.
