Guests can expect heart-pounding moments with five terrifying haunted houses, two scare zones, and two killer shows, in addition to many of the park’s exciting rides and attractions open till late.
Mr. Jason Horkin, Senior Vice President of Attractions at Resorts World Sentosa, said: “This year’s theme is among the most disturbing ones, drawing upon seven new incarnations of deadly sins to reflect the zeitgeist of today’s society where people are preoccupied with individualism, beauty, and power.
