Who doesn’t love Halloween? The creepy decorations, tasty treats and, of course, those costumes that keep getting more creative each year. Things are a little different this year, but there are still fun Halloween events (online and offline!) to take part in this spooky season. Here are some to check out!
Universal Studios Singapore (USS)
When: Until 1 November
The popular Halloween Horror Nights has been cancelled this year but there’s still loads to do at USS. The theme park has launched “Halloween Fun for Everyone” from now until November. Kids can look forward to the return of Minion Monsters Tricky Treats, a mini-parade featuring FrankenBob, Stuart Mummy and Kevin Dracula. There’ll also be opportunities for meet-and-greets with popular characters from shows such as Puss In Boots, Sesame Street and Despicable Me – decked out in Halloween costumes, of course! As you wander around, look out for USS’s Candy Ambassadors (dressed in orange aprons or wearing pumpkin hats). They’ll be handing out candies and chocolates.
If you get hungry and thirsty, stop by a food kiosk or restaurant for Halloween-themed eats – there’s a Halloween Monster Burger, a Mummified Corn Dog and a Shimmery Halloween Quencher (selected F&B outlets).
When: Until 3 November
Head to “Deep Boo Sea“ at the S.E.A. Aquarium this Halloween! Get the chills as you get up close to some of the creepiest marine life including the Japanese warbonnet and the wolf eel. You can also take part in trick-or-treating and solving riddles in a fun treasure hunt for lost pearls across five habitats. Come in your Halloween best and you might just win the best-dressed contest, too!
Resorts World Sentosa
When: Until 31 October
RWS’s eateries are all geared up for the Halloween season! The Malaysian Food Street is featuring Halloween-themed local eats including Nasi Hantu (kampung-style prawn fried rice) and Spooky Cookies in tasty flavours of gula melaka, chocolate chip, coconut pandan and vanilla butter.
Over at Pizzeria, the family-friendly restaurant’s pizzas, pastas and cocktails have taken on a spooky twist. There’s “BRAAAINS!”, for instance, a squid ink dough pizza with tomato sauce that resembles red gore, topped with black olives, buffalo mozzarella cheese and “brains” (beef meatballs). For the adults, don’t leave without trying the Fiery Lick, made with jalapeños, vodka and cranberries. If you’re dining with the kids, opt for the Family Fright Bundle so you can try all of the Halloween specials.
