This year’s Halloween Horrors at Night Safari is definitely scarier than 2009 and 2008. Thanks to an invitation from the nice folks at the Singapore Zoo, Rachel and I visited their Halloween Horrors for the third year in a row.
For the past two years, the costumed ghosts were generally placed in more predictable spots and on a fixed stretch of route on the tram ride.
This year, the costumed ghosts were placed randomly. When I say random, I really mean it. The ghosts seemed to pop out everywhere – at random points along the tram ride, somethings even between animal enclosures; along the empty pavement you are walking on; and even from behind harmless looking signboards.
This year, a few of the ghosts managed to make me jump. A difficult feat as I am a very calm and composed person. Kudos to the organisers this year! 🙂
I like it that the Halloween walking trail this year managed to incorporate some of the animal enclosures into the setup, making the trail longer and more unpredictable.
I also like it that there are more Halloween attractions added this year – like the Haunted Mansion at the Singapore Zoo for instance. I did not get to visit it as we arrived rather late, but I am sure it is a blast.
Rachel and I caught the Creatures of the Night Show though. We have seen this a few times and it is still as entertaining and refreshing with each visit. Rachel particularly loves the Asian small-clawed otters segment where they picked up empty drink cans and bottles to chuck them into recycling bins. She will be going “Oh so cuteeeee……” throughout the performance.
Specially for Halloween, the Grim Reaper and a slew of other scary costumed characters also made their appearances at the Creatures of the Night Show.
If you would like to visit Halloween Horrors at Night Safari, you still have till this Sunday (31 Oct) to do so. Book your tickets online first to avoid disappointment at the door. At the time of this post, only tickets for 29 and 31 Oct are still available for online booking.
