While Halloween Horror Nights might be the go-to choice for some, we understand that it might be time for new spine-tingling experiences. Of course, we have alternative horror houses for those who chase heart-stopping scares, but we’ve also included a variety of others. If you’re not into scares, perhaps a Halloween party, where you don your favourite Halloween costume, is more your style. Not forgetting the children as well; we’ve compiled family-friendly Halloween gatherings with just enough Halloween decorations and treats to enchant the senses. So, whether you’re a die-hard horror aficionado or prefer to tiptoe through the Halloween season with a lighter spirit, the only rule is to have a devilishly good time.

These are the 8 best Halloween events in Singapore that isn’t Halloween Horror Nights.

1. Shanghai Underground: Long Live the Dai Lo

In collaboration with Peddlers Gin, they present “Shanghai Underground: Long Live the Dai Lo” — a Halloween with a Chinese funeral theme.

This one-night only event promises an eerie night filled with themed installations, best-dressed giveaways, and light-hearted games, all accompanied by a generous serving of spirits.

This event is part of the Shanghai-inspired series, and its Halloween edition, “Long Live the Dai Lo,” promises a sinister twist. Patrons are invited to pay their respects to The Dragon Chamber’s former leader, just as one would at a Chinese funeral, all while indulging in delectable dishes and spirits.

Furthermore, The Dragon Chamber is hosting a “Best Dressed” competition with a grand prize of a 2D1N stay at the newly opened Mondrian Singapore Duxton. Runner-up prizes include bottles of Peddlers Gin and $100 worth of drink-and-dine vouchers for return visits.
