Are you ready for the scare of a lifetime?
Manila’s first Halloween Haunts Scream Park will open on October 31 at the corner of Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard and Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue in Manila.
US-based creative director David Willis, who brought the first western-inspired scare park in Asia, vowed optimum scare as the park features concepts from Halloween theme parks in the United States into the Filipino market, combining it with local freak stories like the aswang, manananggal, and this year’s theme, the ‘white lady’.
“This is not your typical scream park because we’ve specialized this Halloween themed park for the local market,” Willis told The Manila Times.
“We have three scare zones. First we’ve got the white haunted house where you will find this year’s theme, the white lady. Then we’ve also set up a graveyard where we have the classic zombies. Then in late November we have the Asylum which was inspired by an old prison we found up north,” Willis added.
Willis, who is known for his work with some of the biggest companies in the entertainment industry, has worked with Universal Studios in the US and Singapore, and created monsters for blockbuster films such as The Matrix, Star Wars and House of Wax.
The Halloween Haunts Scream Park will bring the scariest countryside creatures to life.
Aside from the scare zones, Willis said that live entertainment will also be available, as well as DJs, bands, characters moving around, and food and drinks to keep guests coming back for more.
Willis refused to give “too much information” so as not to lessen the surprise. The show will run from October 31 to January 5 next year to ensure that merrymakers can also enjoy a scary Christmas.
Children aged 13 and below will be allowed only on Sundays.
