Halloween FrightFest @ Singapore Flyer

This October, Halloween creeps in at Singapore Flyer, with its rainforest being transformed into an eerie hideout of ghouls and ghosts.

The new Director and Group CEO at Wildlife Reserves Singapore, Isabelle Loh, may have ruined Halloween for many by abruptly canceling Night Safari’s iconic and very successful annual Halloween event; other local attraction sites like Singapore Flyer are quick to chip in and fill the demand gap.

I attended the media preview of the Halloween FrightFest at Singaopore Flyer last Thursday (20 Oct), together with a group of omy Blog Club bloggers. Many came dressed in a mix of scary, pretty and fun costumes in the spirit of Halloween.

Rachell and her boyfriend’s costumes especially rocked. Their make-up was so good that many found them to be even scarier than the hired professional talents! It was no surprise Rachell won the top prize for best costume of the night. 🙂

For the media preview, we started off with a tour in the Singapore Flyer rainforest where costumed talents were planted to jump out of bushes to scare visitors:

Many of the bloggers were more busy taking photos with the poor talents than getting scared by them. To be fair, some of the talents’ costumes were pretty good. The scare factor should be there for the general public who are not click-happy bloggers armed with their array of photos and videos capturing devices.

After the scary stuff, we got to take a ride on the Singapore Flyer.I think this is the fourth time I boarded one of their capsules this year. Each time, Singapore’s city landscape changes and I would marvel at how fast we have progressed (or regressed in some areas like public transport).

The day ended with a Special Halloween Brew (non-alcoholic) at the Singapore Flyer lounge. I find this a rather thoughtful, children-friendly gesture.
