Nights of Fright 4 @ Sunway Lagoon

It is October! Not only ghosts and spirits await the festival, yours truely was patient throughout the year for the Festival of Fear at Sunway Lagoon! Nights of Fright is back with its 4th production of horror and thrill. This month, the park will open its gates to beings of a different dimension to walk on the same grounds as you. 
Face your fear
The production by Lynton V. Harris has earned fans through its detailed and thorough presentation. The park is transformed into a ghost infested land that erupted from hell. Every corner evokes evil and chills that gives the perfect setting for photographs.

The crew is trained to surface the deepest human fears through tactics like whispers, elusiveness and shock. However, the team remains professional by not touching visitors. Every attraction is ingrained with a mystery and a story so dark that it remorselessly turn into a place of fear and screams.

Beware of what's behind the gates
This year, more Asian themes are incorporated to make it more relevant and thus more relatable to visitors in Malaysia.  I had a mixed feeling of pride and eeriness when I saw my alma matter Malaya High School where rumour has it that a crime so horrific has taken place in a classroom and tightly covered.

We were then taken cross the Chinese Judgement Bridge (DIYU) where the dead are judged to determine if their journey continues in hell. The props and costumes of this attraction depicts the underworld environment that our grandmothers use to tell us. And to be right there, is very much putting my fear of death in front of my face.

Horrorwood Studios successfully petrified my friends and I to the bones! There is nothing scarier than walking through a foggy lane knowing that there is nothing to laugh about down the ally. And, you cannot turn back! Kudos to Horrorwood! You made even my bravest friend frozen in fear.

On the bright side ironically, this is the only opportunity for you to take photos with wandering 'ghosts' with impressive make up and costumes. Remember to still have fun with rides that are still open like the Carousel, Apache Pots, Pirate's Revenge, Colorado Splash, Tomahawk, Wagon Wheel, the Scream Coaster, Grand Canyon Rapids, Butch Cassidy Trail and Vultures.

Welcome to the dark side
While Sunway Lagoon offers frights and fear to the unsettled souls and of course humans, the theme park ultimate wants to bring out the FUN and laughter in its visitors. My friends and I were laughing till we teared after we got the better of our overwhelming emotions. Sorry for all the tugging and hand squeezes!
Thank you Sunway Lagoon! We had a fun adventure!
