·2-min read

Stepping into the second half of the year is about to get more exciting, especially for fans of the Haw Par Villa. The popular Singaporean theme park has finally reopened with “extensive upgrading” and a new fully air-conditioned Ten Courts of Hell.

The local park originally planned to be closed only until 31 March until the Singapore Tourism Board’s (STB) said it needed more time to “further enhance its offerings.”

As you may know, the Haw Par Villa is an Asian cultural theme park. It is popular for its repository of Chinese mythology, folklore, legends and history. The Ten Courts of Hell is also a well-known attraction at Haw Par Villa that depicts the punishments of the afterlife in great detail.

The local theme park located in Pasir Panjang closed in October 2020 for improvements on site. These included night lighting, ventilation at the Ten Courts of Hell, and restoring sculptures.

After nine months of waiting, Haw Par Villa will now be open to the public again starting from 1 July. But despite its reopening, more offerings and upgrades are still in store for its fans.

In a Facebook post by STB, it was mentioned that some of the new upgrades at the theme park included:

  • Restored sculptures that underwent conservation work such as the main arch

  • Enhanced night lighting

  • A new projection mapping that will greet visitors once they enter the park

  • A now fully air-conditioned Ten Courts of Hell diorama

While the Ten Courts of Hell has been made fully air-conditioned, the attraction is unfortunately still closed. That’s because it will be part of the park’s upcoming Hell’s Museum. According to a post on Haw Par Villa’s official Facebook page, the launch of the new attraction Hell’s Museum will be on 28 October this year.

Among the new offerings by the park is a new restaurant that will be added on October.

The theme park still has some outstanding repairs to be completed hopefully by September says tour company Journeys senior researcher, Mr Eisen Teo, as per The Straits Times.

“Drop by Haw Par Villa for your next offbeat excursion, and stay safe by exploring responsibly,” writes STB in their post.
