Brave Through ‘Momoks’ in Singapore’s First Drive-Thru Haunted House This Halloween
With spooky season approaching, Halloween haunted houses are sure to pop up around Singapore, but for this spooky holiday you may need to park in a car for the whole experience.
The Momok (also means ‘ghost’ in Malay) Drive-Thru is Singapore’s first haunted house with a drive-in format, featuring local ghouls. The event will span five days, October 27-31.
Organized by a Facebook club of paranormal enthusiasts, the Momok Drive-Thru isn’t just random jumpscares and a group of people dressed as ghouls.
Bro Zee, the group’s administrator, said, “It will be a journey of storytelling. Each Momok has a story and our guides will explain the folklore and legend behind each ghost.
The event will be held at Kampong Wak Hassan in Sembawang, which also has its share of scary stories. Bro Zee, who grew up in the area, has a personal story to share.
His family spent a lot of time at Sembawang Beach and when he was a baby he claimed that a pontianak (a vengeful female spirit) cradled him when his mother hung the crib on the tree while she prepared food . Her father had gone fishing at the time and when her mother turned to check on him, she saw her at the makeshift cradle.
Bro Zee also hints at the possibility that you’ll see more than just creepy actors given Sembawang Beach’s reputation.
For non-drivers, you can still experience drive-in by bike, scooter, PMD – and on foot. There will be food and vendors on site if you get peckish after the spooky session.
Tickets start from $45 and are available online.
