If you’ve been counting down the days to Halloween like we have, the wait will soon be over!
It’s that time of the year where we dress up in costume, scare ourselves silly, and hopefully score ourselves some candy. What’s not to love?
This month, we’ve rounded up a list of Halloween parties you can attend, and some Halloween-themed food you can look forward to chowing down on!
Brace yourselves, you won’t see these scares coming.
Play & Discover
1. Halloween Horror Nights 7
First on the list is a Halloween house that requires no introduction.
Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights is back for its seventh edition, and this year’s scare-fest is themed after the seven dead-lier sins: cruelty, deception, malice, manipulation, narcissism, perversion and obsession.
Come face to face with your worst nightmares when you enter the 5 haunted houses, which include a mall filled with ghosts (‘Death Mall’), an eerie hut haunted by the Midnight Man (‘Hex’), and see what evils lurk within the minds of the malevolent (‘Inside The Mind’).
Wander through 2 scare zones, one of which is a sanctuary for the 7 sins (‘Pilgrimage of Sin’), and another of which is a macabre twist on your favourite holidays (‘Happy Horror Days‘).
Another highlight at Halloween Horror Nights this year is also a HHN first – Zombie laser tag. For the first time in Halloween Horror Nights history, you get the chance to defend yourself against the horrors you will meet. So grab your weapon; you’ll need it to fend off the rabid flesh-eating zombies.
Tickets are available for purchase here.
2. Museum Of Horrors VII: Vengeance
Not a fan of Halloween Horror Nights? Here’s another haunted house to check out that’s tagged at a fraction of the price.
Museum Of Horrors is back, and this year’s edition circles around a dead girl who is hungry for revenge.
Abused and murdered by her mother, her restless spirit has returned to haunt her mother’s new family. Possessing her mother, she kills off every single member of the family before forcing her mother to hang herself.
Pay a visit to the grave-filled backyard, step into the master bedroom, and brace yourself for what you may find in the attic and the children’s room! A house full of horrors, you’ll want to take a deep breath when you arrive at the front porch.
Watch your back – you can never be too careful.
Tickets are available for purchase here.

If horror houses and being scared isn’t what you had in mind for Halloween, maybe this is.
Lulu’s Lounge will be hosting its first Halloween party.
Called ‘Carnival of the Absurd‘, this party is themed around a Coney Island freak show, which is famed for its performers who bear bodily abnormalities (e.g dwarves, four legged humans) or who can perform amazing inhuman feats like swallowing swords and contorting their own bodies.
While we don’t know yet what characters we’ll find at this carnival, you can be sure you’ll be thoroughly entertained by their roving characters and wacky stage performers.
Get your freak on and don’t be a bystander! Here, no one will be judging.
