After a few years of restrictions and limitations, the ghosts and ghouls of Sunway Lagoon’s Nights of Fright (NOF) are once again on the prowl to scare a soul or two!
Let us walk you through a behind-the-scenes look of the hauntings and scares of Nights of Fright 8, overseeing the entire ghostly experience and how we ensure each guest experiences a screaming good time!
The day begins with morning meetings headed by operation leaders of the theme park, covering important pointers such as deadlines, concerns that have risen within the theme park – and more importantly, how to improve. All these happen before Sunway Lagoon’s opening hour!
Music? Check. Costumes? Check. Mascots – are Captain and Lady Quack here? Yes? We are ready to roll!
With T-minus four hours to showtime, we conduct final checks and follow-ups, getting together to discuss upcoming events and functions as well as checking our deadlines and progress and to ensure everything is in order.
This is when we run through our shows for the night, music selection, choreography and staging!
Any last-minute additions or dance rehearsals are also finalised by now so that we are all in sync for the night.
It is now time to transform ourselves into characters assigned – this starts with yet another meeting with our full-time team and part-timers who have graciously joined us as one of the undead for Nights of Fright. Once the briefing is complete, off we go to costumes, hair and make-up.
Be it a zombie, werewolf or some other ghastly creature – we are ready for you by 6pm sharp!
The undead are now amidst the living!
In our full costumes, we head to Sunway Pyramid for a flash mob to draw in the crowd as a sneak preview of our spooky spectacular later that night!
If you see us, don’t run – we just want to have a little bit of fun!
After the flash mob, it’s back to the theme park for final checks on lights, setup, ambience and safety – which is our utmost priority. We make sure that each teammate has proper rest and a hearty dinner as they will most likely be on their feet the rest of the night.
The countdown to the night of devilishly good fun begins! Tick tock tick tock…
The gates are now open!
Come one, come all – explore each and every one of our eight haunted houses; step into our haunted theatre or test your bravery at either two of our scare zones!
If all things spooky are not your cup of tea, you can still have fun at any of our 11 thrill rides that are open within the theme park or enjoy any of our six showcases on our Nights of Fright Main Stage or Pirate Stage. For the next few hours, it is our duty to make sure everyone is having a safe and terrifyingly good time.
What a night! We wrap up with a party where NOF characters tear up the dance floor with our guests, ending the night on a high!
Werewolves, zombies and other creatures are here to send off our guests – before the night ends, we scour the park to ensure all guests leave the park safe and sound, and that the cleanliness of the theme park is maintained.
Once completed, we run through the items of the day to be reviewed so we can address this when the work day starts all over again. Time to retire for the night. 😉
