Fright of your life
> Sunway Lagoon Theme Park’s Nights of Fright 5 returns to put some scares and screams in those who dare to enter
AS THE SUN sets and the dark of night engulfs Sunway Lagoon Theme Park, the dreadful souls rise once again, wandering every road, alley, and walkway in search of victims for the Nights of Fright 5 (NOF5).
The series of haunting started on Oct 7 at sunset, with the Night of the Undead Run, where more than 1,300 participants ran for their lives, starting from the gaping maw of the park’s entrance, through obstacles, scares, and spider webs.
“This is the biggest Nights of Fright yet,” said Sunway Lagoon general manager Sean Choo.
This year, the event features 13 attractions ranging from the beautiful Mexican-themed Day of the Dead in 3D, to the actionpacked Hollywood-inspired Ghostbusters Adventure Live, and the maddening and frightening halls of the future in Dystopia.
“This year, we are offering a wide range of experiences,” said Choo. “There is something for everyone at NOF5 – from the serious to the casual horror fans.”
Lynton V. Harris, chairman and CEO of The Sudden Impact! Entertainment Company which created the horrors, added: “The team has injected a ‘slice’ of true events and myths inspired by Asian horror stories to create a close representation of the attractions.”
There is the Pontianak vs Pocong, a story of love and betrayal, with a lover returning from the dead as a Pontianak, and the unfaithful husband coming back to the mortal world as a Pocong.
Or see what goes on behind the gates of Pudu Jail where prisoners await their end – to hang for their crimes at Judgement Lane.
Re-live your childhood nightmares with iconic horror movie characters at the Horrorwood Boulevard and Horrorwood Studio.
If zombies are your thing, head on over to Zombie Apocalypse, where there is no escape from the undead, and to Zombie Pirates, where undead swashbucklers spirit you away from the bay into a pool of horrifying torment.
You could also go for a frightful stroll through the Forest of Fear, which is guarded by tombstones, haunted trees, and leafy vines.
One of the best experiences at NOF5 has to be The Island of the Dolls, a replica of a real-life haunted tourist attraction in Mexico.
You and five others must hold onto a piece of rope while walking together through the dark, foggy, and winding path filled with creepy dolls and other creatures of the night.
At the end of the night, join the March of the Undead, when ghouls gather and walk together through the Sunway Lagoon Theme Park towards the final stage for one last scream.
For only RM64 per person, you can experience all that NOF5 has to offer.
Each ticket will get you free goodies, either a Blood Bag drink or a Devil’s Horn LED headband (on Friday or Saturday), or free snacks (on Sunday).
Sunway Lagoon also offers Express Lane tickets for RM104 per person. With these, you can skip the long queues.
Sunway Lagoon Theme Park Night of Fright 5 happens every weekend night from 7.30pm to 11.30pm, from now till Oct 29, culminating in the finale on Oct 31.
