Now that the vaccination rate has reached 90%, things are finally starting to open up again. Considering how stressful this past year has been, it should be no surprise that millions of Malaysians are already planning their holidays.
To help you celebrate the upcoming Halloween season, The Full Frontal has prepared a list of the spookiest theme parks in the nation. Whether you’re a scaredy-cat who can’t stand being alone in the dark or a fan of all things that go bump in the night, we’ve got a little something for everyone!
#1: Sunway Lagoon
C’mon, you know Sunway Lagoon, right? Even if you’re not a big fan of theme parks, you’ve probably seen pictures of their amazing water slides and massive artificial beach.
But Sunway Lagoon isn’t all sunshine and beach parties. Their annual Night of Fright festival is one of the spookiest Halloween events around!
Unfortunately, while Sunway Lagoon is currently open, it seems that this year’s “Day. Light. Fright” event has been indefinitely postponed.
But not all hope is lost! Halloween horror fans can still visit the Sunway Lagoon Scream Park to enjoy a live action scare extravaganza. There’s ghosts, ghoulies and a haunted house that my family had to leave halfway because my little sister got scared!
I, of course, totally wasn’t scared at all. Don’t listen to her lies, she clearly can’t remember anything because she was so traumatised.
Address: 3, Jalan PJS 11/11, Bandar Sunway, 47500 Subang Jaya, Selangor
Opening Hours: 10am to 6pm. Closed on Tuesdays (except for school and public holidays)

#2: LEGOLAND Malaysia
Another local favourite, LEGOLAND Malaysia recently reopened their theme park on 14 October. Their water park will be opening on 27 October — just in time for Halloween season!
But while we all love a good splash, the main event is going to be their annual Brick-Or-Treat Halloween Special. It’s going to be a spooktacular event for the whole family!
They have special shows, meet and greets with all sorts of spooky LEGO characters and even a Kid’s Costume Contest. Best of all, during this event, kids in costume can enter LEGOLAND Theme Park, Water Park and Aquarium for FREE*!

#3: i-City Theme Park
What secrets are hidden inside the Abandoned Red Carpet? Who is lurking in the House of Horror?
Though they’re famously known as the City of Digital Lights, this year, Klang Valley’s i-City Theme Park will be going dark — literally!
Held from 29 October to 7 November 2021, Dark Halloween is a special Halloween season package that’s sure to get your spines tingling. Experience i-City’s terrifying new attractions, explore the mystery of Rumah Puaka Hantu and enjoy their exclusive Halloween themed gifts and goodies!

At The TOP Penang Theme Park, visitors can explore no less than 18 themed attractions, including the Rainbow Skywalk, Jurassic Research Center, Penang Boutique Aquarium and 7D Discover Motion Theater. From 29 October to 31 October 2021, The TOP will also be hosting “Z Night: The Unsilent” — a special Halloween themed event open to adults and children alike.

While it’s not a traditional theme park, this list couldn’t possibly be complete without Hauntu.
The first immersive haunted house experience in Malaysia, Hauntu is a must-visit Halloween spot for any horror fan!

Don’t Forget Your SOPs!
After all the events of this past year, I’m sure that everyone can’t wait to go out and enjoy their holidays. But while it’s important to have fun, we all need to remember our SOPs!
Of course, not everyone is interested in a scary experience. If you happen to be craving a more relaxing adventure, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered too.
