Universal Studios Singapore will be tying up with Netflix to recreate scenes from “Stranger Things”. Universal Studios Singapore’s (USS) Halloween Horror Nights returns this year with Asian horror taking centre stage and popular Netflix drama Stranger Things thrown into the mix. With five haunted houses and two scare zones, the annual themed event at Sentosa is amping up the scare factor in its eighth edition, which will run on 18 nights from 27 September to 31 October.
Even the process of creating the installation involved interacting with the space and people around. Titled "Lost Colonies", the work resembles a honeycomb as it unravels into a fabric-like structure that seems to drift away.
Visitors to Sentosa can look forward to two new luge tracks and a new skyride, which were unveiled by Skyline Luge Sentosa on Monday (16 October) afternoon. As the first luge ride in South-east Asia, Skyline Luge Sentosa has hosted over 13 million rides to date. To meet the strong demand, the new tracks and skyride have been implemented to enhance ridership experience and reduce waiting time.

Ever wondered what it’d be like to watch Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) or Liam “I will find you and I will kill you” Neeson kick some butt while lazing on a beach? As part of Sentosa’s Thrillogy, movie buffs can watch the “Taken” (4 March), “Maze Runner” (5 March), and “X-Men” series (10 – 12 March) at Palawan Green for free. After dark activities on the island include guided night walks at Fort Siloso for the brave of heart to relive Sentosa’s World War 2 past.
The Chinese New Year (CNY) celebrations also bring along with them the first extended weekend of 2017, packed with festivities and celebrations all across the island. The annual River Hongbao, Sentosa’s Love in Springtime and a tour of the Istana are just some of the highlights this weekend. Since 1987, the River Hongbao has been the annual welcoming party for the Lunar New Year.
