[Attraction Review]- Sentosa Spooktacular 2014, Asia’s Scariest Fun
Last week, we sent two of our bravest champions, Jacqueline and Jasmine for the media preview of Sentosa Spooktacular 2014 and according to them, it was truly a spooky night as the entire 40,000 square metres of Fort Siloso was redeveloped into Spooktacular Village, Laddaland.
Situated along the coast of Sentosa, Fort Siloso is known for its rich background; from serving as Singapore’s coastal defence in the 1880s, to being a prison camp during the Japanese Occupation of World War II. Its historical background makes it an ideal location to stage an immersive real-life haunted village experience.
Each haunted house is themed after international hits by GTH such as Alone, Countdown and Laddaland, and their upcoming 2014 production, The Swimmers. Visitors can choose their preferred neighbourhoods and horror pathways, treading through 15 to 20 minutes of prolonged fear and suspense each time. With elements from the movies infused into various parts of the haunted Laddaland at Sentosa’s Spooktacular Village, one can expect a concoction of spine-chilling Asian folklore and out-of-this-world trepidations that will arrest all human senses.
Our Personal Review/Opinion of Sentosa Spooktacular
The Fort Siloso is a really apt place for hosting the Sentosa Spooktacular 2014 because of its many spooky tales. The ambience and atmosphere is very eerie and scary. The props and makeup of the scare actors were a little bit extreme but it was overall a thrilling good time.
If you are afraid of entering the haunted houses but would like to roam around the grounds of Laddaland, you can purchase the Kia Gui Pass that cost only SGD$16.60. If you suddenly feel brave enough to venture into the haunted house, you just have to top up an additional SGD$50.
However, having said all these, Sentosa Spooktacular 2014 is definitely not suitable for children aged 12 years and below. In fact, teenagers aged 13 to 15 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian aged 21 years and above. Sentosa Spooktacular 2014 is also not recommended for expectant mothers, and for anyone who suffers from heart disease, high blood pressure, major vertigo cases or claustrophobia.
