Nights of Fright 2 Sunway Lagoon Opening

Hi sunshines!!




If you've been following me on Instagram, the giveaway event to win the Nights Of Fright 2 tickets have officially ended and I have my winners!! 

I sincerely thank all of you who have participated and appreciate it alot!

Don't worry if you missed the opportunity because I'm sure I'll be making a lot more giveaways in the future! 

But if you're still keen about the this spooky theme park, tickets are still available for sale at RM48 per person~
(Challenge yourself to go on your own!)

So just to get your engines started for your spooky night experience, here's some photo blog I'd like to share with you on the night of their official opening on the 16th October!!

I like this particular character! Reminds me of the Joker in the Batman movie. ^^

It was pouring and thundering that particular night but nothing stopped us from enjoying the theme park! In fact, the atmosphere heightened after the quick downpour!!

Talk about blessing in disguise!

Light meals exclusively for media. =)

Finger says it all. LOL!

I dressed up for the night too!!
A simple black outfit : Mesh midi from BlaqMagikLVRS // Crop top from ZARA // Sports wedges from PUMA // Hair by myself

(All the better to run from scary situations!!) 

If you think that it's just ONE big haunted house, it's actually SEVERAL haunted house in ONE.







If you didn't have time to dress up, it's okay!
They have lots of Halloween props/costumes for sale.

I wanted this sickle staff to walk around with to match my dark outfit but maybe it'll be too dangerous towards the characters around.
For fear that I might hit them with it.
Forget it.
*Puts it back*
There's lots of characters walking on random around the theme park to enhance our experience!

I really admire their persistance of these student volunteers to keep their act throughout the night for the visitors.
Maybe I should consider volunteering next time? 
*Dead serious*

Being a Chinese myself, I'm always scared of Chinese ghosts more.
IDK why.
Too much ghost stories about 'em.

It's unbearable even when you see them behind these tight wires.

Bloody bride scared me.
Hahaha... Geddit?
Bloody bride. hehh..

Selfie is very welcomed!!


You know it's Jack Sparrow when you see one!
( Tho I know the real thing is much more handsome. >.< )



But I think he has caught the awkward essence of Jack Sparrow by that stare.
So extra points for that. Hehehh!!
I love her vibes here! I mean the vibe of the character she created. ^^
Spot her sitting on benches with her doll, skipping around or standing at haunted houses exits!
Anyway, I did a quick 1-minute-footage of how they manage to build up the eerie, spooky and dark side of Halloween!



I kinda wished I could capture some footage from all the haunted houses I went in but I was basically too busy walking fast, half covering my ears and screaming my lungs dry.

Trust me, it's promotes blood circulation and trains your heart muscles.
Even pups started swearing and cursing at everything that jumps in.
Heheheh!

My favourite was the ScreamPark!!

This theme park opens from 7.30 p.m - 10.30 p.m.
For 3 whole hours, it's more than enough for you to enjoy free face painting, all the haunted houses, selfie as you wish with characters around and enjoy taking ghostly photos with your friends in the settings around.
You can go on to search for the hashtag #NOFSL on Instagram and have a look at how much fun people who have paid a visit.

Big applause to the enthusiatic acting characters, Lynton V Harris and all the technical support that made NOFSL an experience to remember!!
