Sentosa Spooktacular is back!
After my very first experience at the first Sentosa Spooktacular held at Fort Siloso in 2012. I’m back to visit the place again for Sentosa Spooktacular: Laddaland. Read on for my thoughts of the event!
This year at Sentosa Spooktacular, there is no Fort Siloso, instead the whole place have been transformed into Laddaland. This year is the second year that GTH, the movie studio who’s responsible for creating Thai hit horror movies like Shutter, Alone, Pee Mark and more to come together to produce Spooktacular. Last year’s first collaboration have seen a great success that this year is the beginning of a three year partnership between Sentosa and GTH. So we can expect more horrifying Thai ghost at Sentosa Spooktacular for the next two years.
Entering Fort Siloso/ Laddaland and you will find yourself transported into a horror village (literally). Beware of dark alleys and corners as you do not know what is waiting for you in the darkness.
Instead of 5 haunted trails, you will only have to brave through 3 trials this year at spooktacular. It’s good in a way that even if the queuing time is long, you will still be able to experience all three trials. Or you can speed up facing death by getting the fast pass at and additional $32 on top of the $66.60 of the standard ticket. But fret not, your experience will not be affected with lesser trails as the trails are a lot longer this time round. Based on the movies Alone, Countdown and The Swimmers, expect yourself to be transported into the movies from the beginning to end. I would rate the scare factor of each trail with Countdown being the least horrifying, followed by The Swimmers and than Alone.
If you’re really the kind that is very brave, take the time to enjoy the whole set up of the trails and the village of Laddaland itself. The producers literally transformed Fort Siloso exactly like what’s in the movies. Trailers of each movie are being played at the entrance of each trail, watch it and after you go through the trail, you will get what I mean. The set is very well done I must say.
If you’re the kind that can’t really take scares in narrow spaces with no where to escape but still wants to enjoy the Halloween atmosphere at Spooktacular, you can get a Kia Gui Pass at $16.60 to roam around Laddaland. But although there’s more space in a way to run, there’s space for you to be followed too. Don’t say I never warn you.
This thing gave me a good scare when I turn back and sees it. And this is not the only place where it lurks. 😉
Here’s a short video that will give you a sneak peak of what is to expect at Sentosa Spooktacular: Laddaland this year. No footage or photos of the trails as I do not want to spoil it for you guys or rather I was too busy clinging on to my brother during the trails to take any photos. LOL.
