Halloween Horror @ Night Safari

While exploring the new business concept of collective purchasing at website, I chanced upon their "hottest" deal which is the Halloween Horror ticket at Night Safari. I was pretty excited. Firstly, I had not really participated in any Halloween event before. Secondly, this "BigDeal" seemed to offer quite a real good deal! Without any discount, a single ticket to Halloween Horror cost $45. If I buy from, I pay $38.80 but they will rebate a $20 BigDeal Credit to purchase other products from the website. Therefore, I will only pay like $18.80 for a ticket. Sounds good?

I went ahead to buy two tickets without telling my hubby who was holidaying in Guangzhou.  Haha... He got no choice, but to go with me.  We reached the place very early, around 5.45pm and we realized that the event will start only at 7pm. 

There were the "ghosts" to keep us entertained at the entrance.  They went around to scare people.  We took some photos with them too.
Francis and the "Kacang Puteh" man
We walked over to the Night Safari.  On the way, we saw something suspicious.  True enough, this guy would suddenly spring out and scare people.

Halloween Pumpkins!!  I was actually caught surprised by the big pumpkin that you see at the background.  I thought it was just a static prop but it could actually stand up!
Me and the Japaness ghost.
I love this shot!  This avatar-like creature startled quite a number of people as he was quite small sized and many didn't realize he was so near to them!
Memories of the Departed
The staff of Night Safari was very kind to offer their assistance to take photos of us using our own camera.
"Halloween Horrors" Entrance.  We entered before 7pm, around 6.45pm.
We started off with the "Train of Terror".
While waiting for the tram to depart, the ghostly characters went around scaring people again =) 
Corpse Bride - She was our guide/ narrator on the train.  No flash photography was allowed on the tram but there would still be some people using flash at the animals.  She would pretend to be angry and told the
people off in a funny tone
Me and the corpse bride
Next, we went for the "Spooky Trail".  This one not really very scary lah... Some of the characters were just there for you to take photos.
"The Twin Sisters"
"The Bride"
Passed  by Ulu Ulu Restaurant and they were selling these "fingers" for snacks.  I wonder who would want to try them.  Haha...
After that, we walked back to the Singapore Zoo to visit the Haunted Village.  This is an addition to the past year Halloween activity.  By then, it was 8.45pm.  Do you believe we actually had to queue two freaking hours to get into the Gui Mansion?  We finally entered the ghost house at around 11pm!!  The group queueing in front of us was even more upset as this was their first stop and they had not board the tram and see the animals at night safari yet.
The Gui Mansion
No flash photography allowed inside and thus, I kept my camera.  Francis and I were the first to lead the group.  The ghosts inside didn't manage to scare us.  I screamed once as something a hairy ball dropped on me.  Haha.... 
We ended the night with a photo with the "barber"
For those who are hungry, they have a stall selling some "good food and drinks"
For those who have not visited the Halloween Horror at night safari, you will still have a chance next weekend.  However, the ticket will be priced at $50!
Also, some tips for you: 
1.  Try to reach there before 7pm and visit the Haunted Village at the Singapore Zoo first so that you will not end up like us queueing for 2 hours.  
2.  Bring along your poncho/ umbrella.  The weather is quite unpredictable these days.  If not, you will have to purchase the poncho from the Night Safari staff at $5 if it starts drizzling.

Have fun!
Happy Halloween!!
