***UPDATE: EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES***
We’ve all seen scary footage where a shocking apparition suddenly enters the frame with a bang, or been scare-pranked by someone who appears out of nowhere, screeching in your face. Whether the shock is anticipated or not, once that fight or flight instinct kicks in, you’d be writhing with thrilling energy.
For a good dose of such jitters, it’s quite hard to beat the venerable haunted house recipe. Delightfully nasty surprises lurk within a creepy environment, plucking away at your nerves as they prepare to burst out and leave you panicking. Well, steel yourself, for the mother of all Malaysian haunted houses is expecting you.
Cold Sweats And Hot Jams
Sliced into two portions, Hauntfest is an interesting pairing of terror and tunes, albeit within separate settings. Visitors begin their journey by braving Chapter 1: House Of Horror, before moving on to Chapter 2: House Of Horror.
As its name insinuates, the first chapter is the shiver-inducing one, scattering its ominous elements over an area substantial enough to earn this haunted house the right of calling itself not just the largest, but the longest in the country as well. Half a kilometre of spooky ruses, creepy crawlies, eerie beings and other macabre abominations lie ready to chill your spine! Unsettling your peace further are realistic 4D environment variations, ranging from gusts of wind to abrupt snow flurries.
Make it out in one piece and you’ll be treated to a rousing concert in Mystery Land. Grab some refreshments and unwind at the games booth, before loading up on face paint and glow sticks to rock out with top local celebrities. The likes of Sonaone, An Honest Mistake, K-town Klan and more are the song providers for the night, promising to bring the house down. Let your fear of missing out get to you!
